Megan Westlake, VT

Vet Technician & Client Care Representative
Megan graduated from St. Clair College in 2000 as a Veterinary Technician. After spending several years working with exotic pets at a practice in Mississauga, she moved to Peterborough in 2008 to be closer to her family and has been working as part of the Champlain team ever since. In addition to spending her time between working in the laboratory and pharmacy and upfront in reception, you’ll find her involved with some of the more creative aspects of Champlain. Much of the displays you’ve seen around the office, as well as some of the social media content, has been a product of her quirky, creative mind. Known around here as the ‘cat whisperer’ (or just ‘crazy cat lady’), she can be found at home with her two cats Maddox & Juno. Adding to this, her rambunctious golden retriever Rory, you could say it’s never a dull moment in her household.
