MEET OUR TEAM
Your Pet Care Experts
Dr. Brill is a 2013 graduate from the Ontario veterinary college and has been fondly named Dr.Brilliant. You will find her delightful, informative and the kindest heart ever. We hope that you will stop by, meet her and share our enthusiasm in welcoming her to our family.
Dr. Hickey completed her Bachelor of Science in Biological Science at the University of Guelph and went on to graduate from the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program at the Ontario Veterinary College in 2014. She is proud to be part of a profession that combines her love of animals and science. She enjoys many aspects of veterinary medicine with special interest in preventative care and pet nutrition. During her free time, she enjoys watching movies and going for hikes with her German Shepherd, Diesel. She is thrilled to join Fairview Drive Pet Hospital and looks forward to providing high quality care as part of the team.
Client Care Coordinator
“Chatty Kathie” as she is fondly called can be found all around the clinic as she is becoming versed in all areas. She is more than a receptionist – she is currently learning how to “wrangle” angry cats as part of her new role! But rest assured wherever she is in the clinic she is chatting and making pets and staff feel at ease!
Kathie has been charming clients with her wit and banter at Fairview Drive Pet Hospital for over 15 years. In her spare time, she enjoys shopping and trying to “wrangle” her three boys Tucker (7 year old Golden), Fender (5 year old Golden) and Connor (15 year old human).
Registered Veterinary Technician
Christina graduated from the University of Guelph Ridgetown Campus in April of 2014 and became registered shortly after. She has been passionate about animals since kindergarten. Some of her favourite areas of veterinary medicine are dentistry, lab procedures & building a relationship with clients and their pets. She is keeping herself busy outside of work with planning her wedding coming up this year! She has 3 pets at home: Oakley, a 7yr old Mini Australian Shepherd; Isla, a 4yr old cat that she adopted from school; and Leonard, a 3yr old cat that she adopted as well. She is looking forward to getting to know all of the wonderful clients and their pets at Fairview Drive Pet Hospital!
Michelle Barnes is one of our super talented technicians with approximately 20 years in the "behind the scenes" care of our in-hospitalized pets, as well as grooming, and is a key part of our amazing team! In her spare time Michelle is a Harley riding, tattoo loving, travel lover (sometimes she even lets her husband join her!) Michelle and her Boston Terrier Diesel are pictured here enjoying outdoors and planning the next vacation!
After the stress of working in the crazy corporate world someone told me I should do something that brings me joy…. So here I am! I left the corporate world full of business travel and high heels – which was exactly what I needed. Keeping clients happy was my job for 30 years – and now the added bonus is that those clients are furry and have 4 feet! With a strong managerial background, I keep all the administrative tasks on track here at the clinic which takes up a lot of my time – but there is always time for snuggles!
My spare time is taken up by Dallas (8 year old boxer), Maverick (3 year old Doberman) and my new Grandson Wyatt – and anytime left over is offered to the rest of my family!
Jennah is currently in school for Veterinary Office Management with 1 year to go. She has always known that she's wanted to be in the animal care business since she was little. Jennah is very excited to be a part of our team and learn as much as she can. In her spare time she likes to take her dog Rin on walks and cuddles on the couch while doing school work.
Dr. Crockatt, AKA Dr. Jan is a key member of our Veterinarian team at Fairview Drive Pet Hospital. If you’re looking for kindness and compassion, then look no further than Dr. Jan.
