Monique was born and raised in Sydney. She did her post secondary education in Ontario where she received her Veterinarian Technician Diploma at Ridgetown College, University of Guelph. After 10 years in Ontario, she had the opportunity to be able to move back beautiful Cape Breton. She has been working as a technician since 2009 and was able to join our Celtic Creatures team in the spring of 2014.

Monique has a special love for cats, especially white ones, and doesn’t mind having to handle the particularly saucy ones! She loves taking care of her patients, nursing them back to health, and giving them a little extra TLC while they’re here with us.

In her spare time you might find Monique and her husband Adam spending time with their large extended families, or helping out at their local church events. They also love spending time in the summer at the beach and camping around our beautiful Cabot trail. Adam and Monique own two senior cats, Betty Boops and Cypress.
