Emily Edwards, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician

Emily graduated from the Georgian College Veterinary Technician program in 2019 as a second career path after she found her career as a human massage therapist wasn’t for her. Working with animals definitely is. Emily started as an RVT in an emergency clinic where she quickly learned a multitude of skills. Emily has found that working in general practice is more for her. When Emily is not at work, you will find her spending most of her time with her Cane Corso, Apollo on walks or hikes. Other interests include reading, sewing and riding her motorcycle.
