I grew up on the sunny isle of Trinidad and Tobago, where I graduated
from the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of the West Indies in
1998. Immediately following my graduation I worked as a teaching
assistant in the department of parasitology for 1 year and then the
department of Large Animal Surgery and Medicine. My love for companion
animals lead me to start a small animal mobile practice, serving over 800
clients on the island.
I finally found the opportunity to further my career in Ontario Canada in
2001. I started working as a veterinary technician at North Town Veterinary
Hospital, until I completed the North American licensing exams in 2003.
Working as an associate veterinarian in an emergency and general practice
is both exciting and rewarding. It built the foundation for my present
experience as a emergency and general practice veterinarian; practice
owner and mentor to new upcoming graduates. I've worked in many areas
of Ontario including Brampton, Mississauga, Kleinburg, The Beaches,
Toronto, Burlington and Oakville, where I have been fortunate to meet
some amazing people; veterinary teams, industry leaders, clients, great
friends and best of all, my furry patients.
My goal to be the best veterinarian that I can be. I know that sound cliche,
but what defines a good veterinarian? In my opinion, it means having a
deep, love and compassion for your furry patients. True dedication, care
and interest in their health, well-being and quality of life. Its understanding
their way; their means of communicating with us; how we interact with
them and how that affects them. In many ways advocating for them. A
good veterinarian also means providing a great service to our clients.
educating, being there when they need you and advising them, as they are
the guardians for our patients.
My goal as a veterinarian also is to explore and aim to perfect my many
passions in other areas of veterinary medicine including dentistry,
dermatology, critical care medicine, emergency and alternative medicine
including TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine).
Life is a balance and it would not be complete without spending quality
time with the ones you love- my loving wife and my best furry friend and
sheltie, "Marcel". I also love hiking, swimming, traveling and martial arts.
