Kayde has recently moved to the Sunshine Coast from Alberta. Although originally from the lower Kootney's, she lived in Alberta for several years. She is happy to once again call BC home once again and is looking forward to exploring this beautiful area and making it her home. I have always had a passion for animals and have gotten to pursue it for many years as an RVT in Wildlife Rehabilitation, Small Animal and Emergency Medicine. In the last five years, she has transferred into management roles in the Veterinary Industry and has been loving it ever since, and am currently working on getting her CPVM.
In her spare time, you can find her running with her nine-year-old Cane Corso Khyzik, relaxing with her cats or having pool/gardening time with her two-year-old rescue French Bulldog Cardi. She also enjoys volunteering in the community, kayaking, hiking, and reading in her spare time.
Tamara graduated from Fairview College in Alberta in 1991 as an Animal Health Technologist and has worked for Eagle Ridge Veterinary Hospital and The Landing Veterinary Hospital since 1892 (Ok, maybe it was 1992 but that’s still a really, really long time.)
She dreamed of becoming a technologist since she was a little girl and her great grandfather was a Veterinarian. She has a special interest in dental care for pets and enjoys teaching pet owners about how to keep their pets healthy with preventive care.
Tamara likes to say that she learns something new every day and that work is like her home away from home.
On those rare occasions when she is not working, Tamara is really up for anything – she has recently taken up trail bike riding and acrylic painting. At home, Tamara has two unique cats: “Roo” bottle-raised kitten – now a spoiled princess and a failed clinic cat that thinks he is a dog named “Dozer”.
Bio coming soon.

Cindy recently joined the Eagle Ridge Veterinary Hospital and Landing Veterinary Hospital team bringing a background in human education and behaviour. After working in Child Care for seven years, Cindy made the transition to work with animals. Managing the Sunshine Coast BC SPCA gave Cindy experience and education in animal behaviour, and she took particular interest in how to provide low-stress environments.
Having done a fair bit of travelling and always wanting to do more, Cindy has a long list of places she wants to visit! She feels invigorated by new environments and cultures, often preferring to just sit back and watch her surroundings.
While home, Cindy enjoys reading, baking, and anything involving music. Her life is ruled by Emma, an extra-large and hilariously demanding dog!

Janice joined the practice in 2018. She first came to us as a client before joining our team.
Originally from Edmonton, Janice caught the travel bug at an early age. Making her way around the world as a SCUBA instructor, she got to be face-to-face – or fin to fin – with oodles of wildlife. It took almost 15 years of adventure, but she finally found her feet on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of BC and plans to stay.
At home, Janice’s happy little family includes two dogs – Reefer a pitty-heeler mix, and Bella a red nose pitbull. You can often find them on an outdoor adventure up the mountain, or out (and in) the water!
