Our Team

Hello, my name is Teja,

I joined the Whyte Ridge Veterinary team in May of 2013, after completing my practicum here. I graduated from the Animal Health Technology program at Red River College in 2013. I grew up in Morden Manitoba, but moved to Winnipeg to go to school.

Ever since I was young, I have always loved animals and wanted to help them in any way I can. I spent a great deal of my childhood out at my grandparents farm riding horses, which nurtured my love for animals. When I was 11, I got my first pet. A dwarf hamster named Ollie. I currently have a Lab mix named Gunner, a corn snake named Cheeko and a cat named Calvin. I am very happy and excited to be a part of the Whyte Ridge Veterinary team, and have gained a tremendous amount of experience in a very short period of time.

In my spare time, I enjoy running, hiking, and being outside as much as possible. I also enjoy going back to Morden and spending quality time with my family and friends.

Hello, my name is Haley

I joined the Whyte Ridge team in September of 2015 while I was still a student in the Animal Health Technology program at RRC. Since then I have graduated from the program and was excited to have the opportunity work full time at the clinic starting in May 2016.

I have had a passion for animals as far back as I can remember. Growing up on a farm gave me the opportunity to expand my love for animals to all kinds of creatures big and small, and working at an exotics clinic has definitely kept that interest going.

I currently have two cats named Charlie and Lucy, who are in charge of my household, and a crested gecko named Gladys.

Hello, my name is Selena

I started working at WRVH the beginning of summer of 2018, after I completed my first year of the Veterinary Technology program at Red River College. I am now graduated as of May 2019 and have started my journey as a full time Registered Veterinary Technologist. I never would have thought I would be working with exotics as well as dogs and cats; I love the variety so much and wouldn’t change a thing.

I currently have two cats named Arthur and Merlin and a box turtle named Olive. In my spare time I enjoy camping and playing video games.

Hello, my name is Rachel

I started at Whyte Ridge Vet Hospital as a volunteer in May of 2019, and I'm happy to report that by August they decided to adopt me!

I've always loved animals (who hasn't?) and started my menagerie with two gerbils when I was 13. Although Sweetie and Poppy aren't with us anymore, they did pave the way for my current herd: Blue the Dog, Chihiro the Conure, Peanut the Tarantula, Pharaoh the Dumeril Boa, and two Gargoyle Geckos named Brunch and Crocodilly.

I am currently (patiently) waiting to start the Veterinary Technology program at Red River College.

In my spare time (ha) I enjoy making my pets watch scary movies with me. I also choreograph stage fights for Theatre companies!

Hello, my name is Lauren

I started at Whyte Ridge Veterinary Hospital in August 2020 after graduating from Robertson College's Veterinary Office Assistant program in June. I have had a number of different pets over the years, including frogs, three rats named Opie, Milo, and Smudge, and birds, including my current budgies, Cygnet and Emerald.
Working in a clinic that sees such a variety of animals is definitely a dream come true!
