Registered Veterinary Technician
I was one of those kids that would reach for any dog I saw. That desire to touch every pup has never left me and I am very fortunate to make a living doing just that. In 2004, I graduated from Ridgetown College as a Registered Veterinary Technician and joined the team at the Animal Hospital of Stoney Creek in September 2007. I love how our Vets do their very best for each patient, and that each pet that comes through the door is treated as our own.
The best part of my job is dealing with pet behaviour. I love learning new ways to assist clients in managing problems and helping them create a stronger bond.
Outside of work, I spend my time with my two beautiful daughters, Anna and Olivia and husband Jason. I share my home with my two whippets Oskee and Ivy, our rabbit, Robert Munch, an orange tabby named Pez, and our newest addition, a Persian mix named Phil. I have a passion for dog training and would love to compete in dog agility. I also enjoy hiking, photography and reading a variety of fiction. Paula French
I joined the staff at the Animal Hospital of Stoney Creek in 1995 as a receptionist. I consider myself fortunate to work with the best veterinary team around. I truly enjoy interacting with our wonderful clients and their fur babies.
I live in Stoney Creek with my husband John and our combined family of 5 kids! I have always had a love for all animals and it shows with my collage of pets – dogs, cats and a horse (though not at my house)! I have soft spot for barn kittens needing a new home so if you need a new fur baby please let me know.
When not at work, I spend my time looking after my very busy household. I also enjoy a nice glass of wine. Janet Reddicliffe
After working in a human medical office for many years, I joined the Animal Hospital team as a receptionist in 1998. My love for animals has been fostered by the compassionate care of both clients and their pets at the Animal Hospital.
I live in Stoney Creek with my husband Mark and our three cats Cora, Dixie, and Willie. In my free time I enjoy reading and knitting (both for family and also many hats and mittens for donation). I am the proud grandmother of 4 girls, a beautiful surprise after having 2 boys myself!
Registered Veterinary Technician
I have always had a strong passion for animals, having grown up in a household which let me bring home just about any pet. It wasn’t until I volunteered at the Oakville Humane Society, that I came to appreciate the role of an RVT. I graduated from Georgian College with honors in 2010 and feel incredibly fortunate to have found my forever home at AHSC. I am so grateful to work alongside a group of people who also cherish the human/animal bond and grow lasting relationships with clients and their fur babies!
My husband and I settled in Binbrook and now share all of our couch space with two young kids, two cats and a senior Beagle mutt. When I am not at the hospital or running around with the kiddos, you can catch me getting dirty in the garden or playing competitive soccer. Erin Gracey
Registered Veterinary Technician
I knew from a young age that I wanted to work in the veterinary field, I have always had a strong love for biology, medicine, and of course animals! I graduated from the University of Guelph in 2016 with a major in Biology and a minor in Zoology, and then graduated from the Veterinary Technician program at Sheridan College in 2018.
I have a special interest in anesthesia and emergency medicine. I love working in a fast paced environment where I always have the opportunity to learn, especially from the great doctors at Animal Hospital of Stoney Creek.
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and boyfriend, adventuring outdoors, reading, and cuddling my sweet cats Duchess and Poppy! Fun fact about me: I have a twin brother and an older brother and sister who are also twins. Cassandra Raposo
Since childhood, I've known that I wanted to work with animals and was delighted to join the team in April 2021.
I graduated from the University of Guelph with an Honours degree majoring in Zoology. There I found my passion for marine invertebrates but unfortunately, you won't find any of them here in Hamilton. In 2019 I was lucky enough to go snorkelling in the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef (the second-largest barrier reef in the world) and in the future, I hope to see more of the world's oceans.
In my free time, I love being outside and going for Pokemon Go walks with my boyfriend, bird-watching, or running. On cold or rainy days, you can find me crocheting, reading or snuggling with my senior cat Bella. Andrea Olivieri
I have been a Veterinary Assistant since 2016. I have always had a love and passion for animals from an early age. Every day I feel lucky to be able to work with animals and to get the opportunity to continue to learn from such an amazing team! Animals have always had a special place in my heart and having the opportunity to help our clients and their pets is truly rewarding.
When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my family, baking up delicious treats (of course bringing some for everyone at work), and managing the chaos of 5 cats in my household, most of which were rescues or strays! Mackenzie Ward-Mitton
In 2019 I became part of the clinic as a co-op student. Shortly after, I got hired on as a Veterinary Assistant. I also provide sanitation to keep the clinic clean! I knew on my first day of co-op that this is exactly what I wanted to pursue. I’m now attending school to become a Veterinary Technician. I’m so enthusiastic about working at the Animal Hospital of Stoney Creek. I love all types of animals; I had dogs, cats, hamsters and fish growing up. My parents told me countless times “no more pets in the house”… but I always found a way to bring another one home.
I live in Stoney Creek with my mom; I also have 2 older sisters named Brooke & Taylor who both have cats. I currently have a hamster named Shadow and a German Shepherd named Koda (aka bubbas). I have another part-time job as a professional, residential, and commercial cleaner. I enjoy working and feeling like I have a purpose in life. When I’m not working, I like to spend time with family/ friends and I enjoy my daily walks with my dog Koda. Kennedy Richeson
I am very fortune to have officially joined the team as of June 2022. I have had a fiery passion for animals since the day I was born. I am known for rehoming all of the famous barn kittens as well as rescuing a jersey calf named Norman and driving him home in my little Honda Fit.
I’ve spent my whole life thus far working in all disciplines in the equine industry. I graduated from Ridgetown with honours in the Performance Horse Handler Program in 2016 and spent the next 6 years exercising and training thoroughbred race horses. Although horses have always had my heart, it was time to take on a new and great opportunity to work with all of your furry friends here at the clinic.
I am the proud mom of my little miracle kitty Libbi, my Percheron Manny who is not so little, and my entire world Mrs Ellie Belly Bully, my 2 year old American Bully who I love to keep busy on constant new adventures. I look forward to seeing all of your fur babies everyday and coming home to explain to mine where I’ve been all day without them.
