Vescinda

Veterinary Assistant

I am a Veterinary Assistant who graduated alongside Brittany. Both of us were taught by the magnificent, Jules Fletcher. Eager to start practicing my skills, I was hired before I was finished my college program. Working at Basinview Animal Hospital for a year and a half, with many dogs, clients, and staff, I am looking forward to meeting all your fur babies and utilizing my passion & skills. When not at work I spend all of my free time with Cora, my recue dog from Texas. She loves coming to work with mommy too.

Alexis

Canine Behaviour Coach

Growing up in Nova Scotia, my love for dogs began early on. I recently graduated at Animal Behaviour College and earned my ABCDT certification in dog training in February 2024. I have almost two years experience working at dod daycares. When I'm not busy with our furry friends, I'm hitting the ice or the diamond, playing hockey and softball. I also have certifications in pet first aid and extensive knowledge in dog behavior, I approach every interaction with our canine companions with expertise and compassion. Whether it's leading pack walks, hosting dogs for boarding, or simply enjoying the outdoors, I find joy in every tail wag and playful bark.

Brittany

Veterinary Assistant

I’ve always had a passion for animals but specifically dogs. In 2019 I became a Veterinary Assistant and went on to work at 2 different vet hospitals. I have 2 rescue dogs who came with trauma, I have spent the past 4+ years slowly watching them adjust and turn into new dogs which is the highlight of my existence. Previously, I worked as a manager at a large dog daycare and boarding facility where we would take in 120+ dogs daily. I love the aspect of getting to watch puppies grow into adults, and shy dogs come out of their shell and get to know you and your dogs.

Lexie

University Student

Raised in the Timberlea community itself, I grew up with a passion for animal care and interacting with nature. I am currently in my first year of Dalhousie's Medical Sciences Program. Over the past year, I have been dog-walking and pet-sitting in the community to balance my studies with doing something I love. You can often find me walking the trails with a dog or two, or playing fetch at one of the local dog parks in HRM. I am excited to share the same love and care to all the dogs who join the Paw Pad Pack.
