Noelle
Registered Veterinary Technician

Noelle graduated from Seneca College as a Registered Veterinary Technician in 2015 and joined the Davisville Park Animal Hospital family in April of 2019. When not busy caring for the patients, Noelle is often at home with what she refers to as ‘The Horde’. ‘The Horde’ consists of Noelle’s boyfriend and her best friend/roommate, along with their five very spoiled cats and an absolutely adored fluffy corgi puppy. These very loved creatures include: Noelle’s own three-legged Jeremiah, nervous Nova, mentally disabled (cerebellar hypoplasia) Meteor and Aurora Rae fondly known as Rory, who can often be seen around the clinic when helping out at work. As well as the roommate’s precious Jade and the boyfriend’s chill Chibs.

Yvonne
Veterinary Assistant

Yvonne recently joined the Leslieville team early 2018. She took in a handful of strays throughout her childhood starting at the young age of 6, which essentially sparked her passion to work in the animal health field. Prior to joining the team, she enjoyed volunteering at clinics as an animal attendant and helping out with an organization called Toronto Cat Rescue. She was involved in administrative work and was trained as a Foster Home Screener, Foster Home Coordinator and as an Adoption Counsellor. She also enjoys organizing adoption events for stray cats and uses her counselling experience to ensure that the cats find their compatible forever homes. Yvonne is in her third year of her Undergrad for Biomedical Science at York University and hopes to become a veterinarian one day.

Nicole is in her first year of her Master of Science degree in Radiology at the Ontario Veterinary College as she continues to pursue her goal of becoming a veterinarian. Nicole has known she wanted to work in the veterinary industry since she was 8 years old.

Nicole has been fortunate enough to volunteer in animal research projects at the University of Guelph and work in various general practice clinics and wildlife rehabilitation centres. Prior to joining the team, she worked at a referral hospital in the surgery department, and is now here to learn more about general practice. When she’s not working or studying, Nicole enjoys going to the gym, reading books, travelling and spending time with her family and pets (Holland lop-eared bunny and bengals).
