Sarah

Client Care Specialist

Sarah’s own dog, Pablo, is the inspiration behind her love for animals and her passion for their healthcare. When she first adopted Pablo as a puppy in 2015, Sarah had a realization: no matter how bad her day may had been, she could always come home to her dog’s positivity, companionship, and unconditional love. For Sarah, getting to spend her days nurturing and strengthening those bonds for other pet owners is a dream come true! She’s Dixie Road Pet Clinic’s Customer Care Coordinator, and also serves the area’s pets as a Veterinary Assistant.

Sarah grew up in Malton but moved to Brampton with her family shortly before her high-school years. She’s been here ever since! After having her son and being on maternity leave for a year, Sarah decided to return to the workforce—she was thrilled to accept a position at Dixie Road Pet Clinic, and couldn’t be happier to launch her journey in veterinary medicine here. One of Sarah’s favourite parts of the job is speaking to clients about the hospital’s wellness program, and she never tires of meeting adorable companions on a daily basis!

Most of Sarah’s free time away from the clinic is spent with her family. Along with Pablo, Sarah shares her home with her boyfriend, C.J., and her young son, Aliath.

Nicole

Client Care Specialist

In Nicole’s experience, pets provide just as much of a consistent, steady support system in life as any human family member is capable of. She’s always wanted to be surrounded by people who love and need their animal companions as much as she does! Now, Nicole is able to pair her strong background in customer service with her lifelong love for animals—she’s a Client Care Specialist here at Dixie Road Pet Clinic.

A Brampton native, Nicole had previously served in a management role at a local company and began to feel that it was time for a change. After her maternity leave ended, she decided to jump headfirst into the veterinary profession—that’s when she joined the team here at Dixie Road Pet Clinic! Nicole has been a part of the clinic family since April of 2018 and serves as a Client Care Specialist. She loves soaking up knowledge from her fellow staff members, and she’s found that she has a special affinity for puppy and kitten visits in the exam rooms.

Nicole lives with her young son, Nathan (who is already turning into a huge animal lover just like his mother!). When she finds a spare moment between her busy work schedule and family life, Nicole enjoys arts and crafts, and particularly likes completing DIY projects around the house. As a family, they love going to the park or visiting Nathan’s grandparents in Oshawa.

Jessica

Client Care Specialist

Jessica grew up in Vancouver as an only child, and she frequently relied on the family pets for companionship and comfort. She’s always wanted to give something back to the animals who have given her so much! When the opportunity arose for Jessica to use her background in customer service to better the lives of pets, she jumped at the chance.

Jessica spent more than 10 years in the retail management industry before becoming a veterinary professional. When she realized that she wanted to use her management and customer-service strengths alongside her love for animals, one choice made perfect sense: veterinary medicine. Jessica joined the team here at Dixie Road Pet Clinic in the summer of 2018 shortly after relocating to Ontario, and she’s been helping the area’s pets and animal parents ever since.

Jessica’s interests outside of veterinary care include teaching swimming lessons to both adults and children—she’s an ex-competitive swimmer and netball player, and competed at the national level!—and reading. She’s a self-described bookworm, and even runs a blog that reviews movies based on books. Jessica also loves to spend time with friends and family; she’s excited for her dog, Maverick, to join her in Ontario in the very near future!

Sabrina

Registered Veterinary Technician

Sabrina’s very first cat, Gentle, helped to set her heart on the world of animal care at a very young age. She hasn’t looked back since! Sabrina’s passion has come full-circle: she’s a Registered Veterinary Technician with the Dixie Road Pet Clinic family.

Sabrina grew up in the countryside of Ontario and is a 2003 graduate of Seneca College in King City. She served as a Registered Veterinary Technician in the emergency care world for a time before deciding to make a change—that’s when she signed on here at Dixie Road Pet Clinic. Sabrina has been a part of the hospital team since August of 2017, and brings with her a special interest in animal nutrition. She’s also fond of client education and loves to help strengthen the bond between a pet and owner by imparting her knowledge in a clear, concise way.

Sabrina lives in Shelburne with her husband, Blair, a fish tank full of about 200 guppies, and the family pet, Humphrey. When she isn’t spending quality time with her family or tending to pets’ needs here at the hospital, Sabrina likes gardening, scrapbooking, and watching movies.

Britt

Client Care Specialist

Britt has always been an empathetic and enthusiastic “people person,” and she has a strong background in customer service. Coupled with her love for animals, working at the front desk of a veterinary hospital simply made sense! Britt is a proud member of the Dixie Road Pet Clinic team and serves the area’s pets and animal parents as a Client Care Specialist.

Britt is from Brampton, Ontario and spent several years working for the city; one of her favourite parts of the job was finding stray pets during the course of her duties and returning them to the Brampton Animal Shelter! After a brief time spent serving under another contract with the city, she decided to jump headfirst into veterinary medicine—that’s when Britt signed on with the Dixie Road Pet Clinic family.

Away from the hospital, Britt enjoys teaching children—she even has a second job helping kids with their learning abilities!—and going kayaking and canoeing in the great outdoors. She’s also an avid Harry Potter fan and holds a movie marathon every year. Britt has two cats at home: the sweet and cuddly Ella, who is the least agile cat Britt has ever known and often has to be lifted by hand to the top of her cat tower; and the more independent Finn, whose favorite prank is stealing socks from the sock drawer and throwing them down the stairs.
