Care Team



Veterinary Technicians



Maryon
Having been with Clearwater Veterinary Centre since 1999, Maryon is considered to be the rock of the practice. She is steadfast and calm no matter how hectic the practice gets. She hails from Rocky and says she didn't choose a career in veterinary medicine - it chose her because it was such a natural fit. Maryon graduated from NAIT in 1983 with her Diploma in Animal Health Technology. Maryon is a past board member of Alberta Association of Animal Health Technologists and past vice president of Canadian Association of AHT's. She has also been the recipient of the AAAHT recognition award twice, a NAIT alumni award and was named AHT of the Year by CAAHT. Maryon is married with 2 children and, although they have moved out, she hopes to have grandchildren soon. In her free time, Maryon enjoys hiking out west, cross country skiing and spending time with her family.




Tammy
Tammy is a local girl, that graduated from Fairview College in 2004, and is a busy mom with 2 young girls. She enjoys the fast pace and constant learning that is always happening here at the clinic. Tammy finds it very rewarding working with the clients to help them with their animals, along with teaching dental health and assisting with prepping and monitoring surgery. Outside of work, Tammy enjoys spending time with her girls riding horses, going swimming, watching them in their karate classes, along with photography and hanging out with friends. Her herd of animals at home includes her 2 dogs Stewart and Bella, a rabbit, 2 ponies and 3 horses.




Laura
Laura hails from Edmonton, Alberta, where she grew up attending a local summer camp here in Rocky Mountain House and fell in love with the small town atmosphere and the mountains close by. She graduated from Olds College from the Animal Health Technology program in 2014, and after completing her practicum at the Clearwater Veterinary Centre, was excited to be accepted on as full time staff. Some of Laura's interests here at the clinic includes anything involving large animal, geriatric care, caring for any hospitalized patients and emergency care.


In her free time, Laura enjoys riding her horses, camping out west during the summer, hiking, snowboarding during the winter, spending time out at her family cottage and playing with her dogs Todd and Missy.




Tina W.
Tina grew up on a small farm in northern Alberta and has always enjoyed working with animals. She started her career by taking the Animal Health Technology program in Fairview and graduated in 2011. After working for a few years, she decided to venture south and has been part of the Clearwater Veterinary Team since the fall of 2014. Tina enjoys the mixture of large and small animal work that the Clearwater Veterinary Centre has to offer. Some of her favorites include anesthesia, caring for hospitalized patients and anything to do with cattle. When Tina is not at the clinic, she spends her time travelling, quading, and hanging out with her Shih Tzu Rosie.






Rebecca Borris - RVT
Rebecca moved to Rocky Mountain House in the summer of 2017 after graduating from the Animal Health Technician program at Lakeland College. She grew up on a farm outside a small town in northern Alberta. After completing her practicum, she was hired at Clearwater Vet as a full time technician. She enjoys working with all animals and likes to get her hands as dirty as possible. Rebecca is always interested in the parasitology portion of her job but also enjoys the variety in each patient. In her spare time, she likes to explore the Rocky Mountains, bake, and spend time with her family and dog Hunter.








Caitlyn McLaren
Caitlin grew up living in small town Ponoka, Alberta and has always had a passion for animals. Her interests in both small and large animal medicine brought her to Clearwater Veterinary Centre. After completing her practicum at the clinic and graduating from the Animal Health Technology Program at Lakeland College in 2017, she was thrilled to be hired full time. She enjoys the variety of working with both small and large animals and treating hospitalized patients.


In her free time, Caitlin loves to travel, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy the great outdoors.









Receptionists



Tina A.
Tina grew up here in Rocky Mountain House on the family farm, where at a young age, she developed a love for working with cattle and raising her stock dogs. Tina graduated from the Animal Health Technology course at Fairview College and later worked in feedlots in southern Alberta checking pens and doctoring any sick animals she came across. She joined us in the spring of 2015 where she excels at sharing her cattle knowledge with local producers and, of course, keeping the rest of us here at the clinic in line.


In her free time, Tina enjoys spending time with her horses, working with her dogs and still loves helping out on the family farm.

Gale has been with the clinic since 1993, she works reception, does our drug orders and runs K9 obedience and puppy classes. Gale grew up in Wapella, Saskatchewan on a farm and has always loved animals. Her education includes a Diploma in Western Horsemanship. Gale's special interests include teaching dog lessons and K9 bite prevention classes for young children, particularly because animal behavior has always been an interest of hers. She also enjoys working with the clients. After 20 years they seem like old friends!


Gale is married and has 2 children and when she isn't hard at work, Gale loves the outdoors - hiking, camping, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and hanging out with her family as well as homeschooling her 2 children.
