Ellen joined the team at Stittsville Small Animal Clinic as Practice Manager on October 1st, 2013. She is a Registered Veterinary Technician with over 35 years experience in every aspect of running a practice – from reception to medicine to business management. As a practicing RVT her special interests included anesthesia, dentistry and animal pain control. She taught part time at Algonquin College in the Veterinary Technician program from September 2013 to May 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed sharing knowledge and tips with the next generation of technicians. Her role as practice manager keeps her mostly behind the scenes, but she enjoys interacting with our 4-legged patients and their family members whenever she can. When not at work she enjoys traveling, spending time with her daughters and working outside in her flower beds as much as possible!
