  • STACIE
    Hospital Manager

    I have had the pleasure of working at Agape since 2003. While most of my time is spent doing the bookkeeping, I occasionally help out front, which is the most enjoyable part of my job because I get to meet the clients and their pets. When I'm not at work I spend my time with my son Ryan. I also have a cat and a dog, Ruby and Annie. Interesting Fact: I lived in France for 2 months and don't speak any French, it was quite an experience!

  • LISA
    Supervisor

    I have worked at Agape since 2003. I worked as a vet assistant for 10 years and now I focus on all of the ordering and inventory throughout the clinic. I have two very spoiled rotten dogs Lola and Luci. My spare time is spent with my husband and children, usually traveling for softball.

  • ZONIA, LVT
    Licensed Veterinary Technician/Trainer

    I became part of the Agape team in 2016 as a Licensed Veterinary Technician, all the way from Canada! I graduated with a BSc from Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS, but discovered I had a passion for the veterinary field and loved the diverse hands on skills required to be a Vet Tech. I completed my Associates Degree in Applied Animal Sciences at Cedar Valley College in 2016 while learning in a clinic setting.
