Everyone has a different reason for pursuing their particular career. Brian knows his reason for pursuing a career in the veterinary field: he wanted to make a difference in the lives of animals, both wild and domestic. That perfectly explains why he is now a registered veterinary technician at Dixie Road Pet Clinic!
Greg may be new to the Dixie Road team, but he’s certainly no stranger to the animal care industry. In fact, upon joining as one of our veterinary technicians, Greg brought with him 15 years of hands-on experience in clinics as well as shelters and emergency hospitals. He is excited to be part of a team that helps pets enjoy happy and healthy lives, from newborn through the senior years.
Greg’s career in animal care began as a groomer. Over time, he kept learning and gaining more skills, working his way up to the technician role. In addition to interacting with animals every day, Greg is passionate about educating owners on the importance of helping their pets enjoy a balanced lifestyle. He also enjoys new puppy and kitten visits, as well as sharing knowledge about proper pet nutrition.
At home, Greg has one dog of his own – Lily, who was rescued from a fighting facility in Quebec. Not surprisingly, she’s not comfortable with other dogs, however, helping her find balance and happiness has made it all worthwhile. An avid musician, Greg plays both the drums and bass. He also enjoys skateboarding and playing hockey.
