Veterinary Assistant

Born & raised here in NS and spending a lot of my childhood visiting PEI, I am proud to call the Maritimes my home. From an early age I have loved animals and once aspired to be a Veterinarian. As a child I also fell in love with baking and became a Pastry Chef once finished high school. I became a Veterinary Assistant in 2019 when I changed career paths. I am enthusiastic about what I do and dedicated to making any experience positive for our furry friends. When not at work, you can often find me going on adventures with my boyfriend, crocheting, or snuggled up on the couch with my fur babies!



Veterinary Assistant

I am a Veterinary Assistant who graduated alongside Victoria. 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. 



Veterinary Assistant

Madeline has been working in the vet industry for four years. Originally from Ontario, Medline moved here almost ten years ago to pursue education at Dalhousie University. After a few career changes, she found her passion with animals. Working at The Paw Pad provides the perfect balance of dog to her house that is run by cats! 



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. 



Certified Groomer

My names Ashley and I joined The Paw Pad in Jan 2023, after completing my grooming certification at Elite Dog Grooming School in Moncton, NB. I am happy to be working in Timberlea where I call home. I moved to Timberlea in 2021 with my husband, 6 year old son and our dog Arlo. Can’t wait to meet & clean up your pups!
