White Valley Veterinary Services Team
Hi, my name is Colleen and I am usually the first person you see as you enter through our doors. I have enjoyed working at White Valley Veterinary Services for 9 years. After having a satisfying 25 year career as a children's nurse I decided to change from the two-legged to the four-legged babies and I absolutely love it. Being raised on a farm in Saskatchewan and then raising my sons here in Lumby, has set the stage for my love of animals. My current roommates are Diva, my spoiled Pomeranian, and Doodles, my elusive Calico cat. When I am not at work I enjoy walking, reading, laughing and most of all talking about my grandchildren!
Hello, I am Chelsea and I have been working as a Veterinary Assistant for the past 6 years, working in Penticton and Vernon before I had the pleasure of joining the team at White Valley Veterinary Services in March 2013.
A large part of my upbringing was spent on cattle ranches throughout BC, so I have always had a love of animals big and small. My Dad opened a pet store approximately a year before I was born and celebrated 30 years in business in 2013. Needless to say a love for animals runs in the family genes!
My favourite part of my job is working with large animals, however that said I am also the first to give a puppy or kitten a good snuggle when they come in for a visit.
When I am not working I can be found along side my husband, Brandon and our many critters. At home we have Milo (Chihuahua X), Cash (Border Collie X), our cat Wallis, as well as two Quarter horse mares Lisa and Tequila. In my spare time I enjoy barrel racing, fishing and a good laugh.
Hi my name is Candace and started working with White Valley Veterinary Services in the summer of 2013. I moved to this area in 2003 and currently live on Bluenose Mountain with my children and various farm animals. When my children are a little older I hope to take them on a week long riding trip into the mountains. Until then I fill my spare time with quilting, riding, hunting and reading. I look forward to meeting many more members of this wonderful community and helping you with your pet care needs.
Madison's Pet Grooming
Hi, My name is Lori and pet grooming has been a passion of mine for nearly 10 years, starting shortly after I got Madison, my Yorkie Poodle cross. During my career, I have worked in many different grooming salons and this variety has provided me with a great amount of experience. After working at the coast for several years, my husband and I moved to Lumby 2 1/2 years ago with Madison, Denver (Springer Spaniel) and Junior our cat. We also recently welcomed our son to the family. In December 2013 I was very excited to move my grooming shop into White Valley Veterinary Services. I look forward to sharing this experience with my regular clients and welcome any new clients that would like to stop in and say hello. Please call me at 250-307-6329 to make an appointment.
