Rachel has a keen interest in both companion and food animal veterinary medicine. As a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT), she has a passion for animal health and works as an advocate for the care and welfare of youngstock. In keeping with this goal, she has a key role in educating producers and other veterinary professionals on current research and best practise, and broadening the scope of practice for future RVTs. Specifically, her areas of interest lie in pain management, developing and implementing treatment and protocols, improving housing and management, preventative medicine, and data collection.
Rachel completed a BSc degree in Biological Science from the University of Guelph in 2011, and the Veterinary Technician program at Seneca College in 2014. She has since been a team member of a large, progressive dairy‐focused mixed animal practice in southwestern Ontario. Through her work, she has had opportunity to mentor many future RVTs and apply her compassion and skill set to help both veterinarians and producers achieve optimal performance. As Research Associate and a key part of the ACER team, she aims to contribute to, and advance, the field of food animal medicine and research.
