Hi everyone! My name is Kayde and I have recently moved to the Sunshine Coast from Alberta. Although originally from the lower Kootney's, I have lived in Alberta since 2004 and am super happy to be able to call BC home once again and am looking forward to exploring this beautiful area and making it my 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 I have transferred into management roles in the Veterinary Industry and have been loving it ever since, and am currently working on getting my CPVM.
In my spare time you can find me running with my nine year old Cane Corso Khyzik, relaxing with my cats or having pool/gardening time with my two year old rescue French Bulldog Cardi. I also enjoy volunteering in the community, kayaking, hiking, and reading in my spare time. Thank you to Eagle Ridge and The Landing Vet for giving me an opportunity to explore and grow in this beautiful community and call it home!
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 “Dozer” failed clinic cat that thinks he is a dog.
Bio coming soon.
Shae grew up on a farm in rural Ontario with her many animals including a pig, three horses, and two dogs. With her strong love of animals Shae knew she would pursue a career in Veterinary medicine. In 2019, Shae graduated from Seneca College in Ontario as a Veterinary Technician.
To start her new career (and to escape the snow and cold!) Shae moved out to BC in April 2019 and found the Sunshine Coast. She now lives in the lovely Gibsons area, with her two cats; Verlander and Rousey, who keep her laughing with their antics! She loves to be outside as much as possible and on her days off you can find her horseback riding or hiking.
Hi, my name is Carrie! Caring for animals has always come naturally to me. Fun fact, some of my first steps were with the help of a water bowl that I was determined to bring to a thirsty puppy!
I ventured through many different career paths until I finally landed in my dream job. Taking care of animals, big and small as an RVT, graduating from Thompson Rivers University’s Animal Health Technology Program with a special interest in anesthesiology and animal nursing.
Initially working in Toronto, I’ve made the big move home to BC to live on the coast with my two goofy cats, Bean and Jersey.
I’m so excited to be joining the wonderful team at Eagle Ridge Veterinary Hospital and The Landing so that I can continue to do what I love. I can’t wait to meet all of you and your fur-babies!
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 surprisingly fluid transition to work with animals. Managing the Sunshine Coast BC SPCA gave Cindy a great deal of 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 hilariously demanding dog!
Amanda is the “Vegemite” eating Aussie that has been with the team since the end of 2018. After her adventures in various parts of the world, she has called the Sunshine Coast home for the last 10 years and loves it.
She has worked with dogs for 13 years in her own dog grooming business and is never happier than when she can work, play, and love the dogs and cats that need our help. She has been a long-time volunteer with the local SPCA and feels very passionate about all things animals.
Amanda and her husband Dean have four wonderful grown-up boys and three dogs, her latest addition is Charlotte a big beautiful Bernese Mountain dog. Charlotte and her can be seen on all the trails around Gibsons or her other passion on the water in an outrigger canoe with the Gibsons Paddle Club.
Alison has recently joined our team after moving her family and fur kids across the country from Ontario!
She has worked in the Veterinary Industry for over 20 years and has brought her passion for companion animal wellness to our team. You will find her at reception smiling and ready to help you!
When she is not working you can find her doing some kind of DIY project, hiking, kayaking or gardening.
Joining the practice in 2018, Janice has always been an animal enthusiast! The more spots they have the better! She first came to us as a client, and she loved the team so much she wanted to join in the fun!
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 wild life. 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 pit bull. You can often find them on an outdoor adventure up the mountain, or out (and in) the water!
Bio coming soon.
Emma has been working at Eagle Ridge for almost two years now after school and weekends. She loves animals, especially chunky orange cats like Penny, who she is looking after (kidnapped) during Covid and has no plans of returning her to the clinic just yet! After high school, Emma plans on pursuing a career in veterinary medicine and maybe even coming back to work at Eagle Ridge or The Landing again! In the meantime, Emma loves to travel and dreams of opening an animal hospital on a Greek Island (where all her team mates will eagerly join her!).
