Annica

Client Care Receptionist

Growing up, Annica always had a pet by her side. Ever since she was little, Annica has dreamed about becoming a vet, and as soon as she was old enough, she started working with animals. At the age of 14 she started working at a daycare/boarding kennel, and her love of working with animals skyrocketed, she knew that working with animals was what she was meant to do. Annica has a love for animals like no other, she treats every pet that comes through the front doors as if they were her own. Working with the owners of these wonderful pets is also something Annica loves to do!

In her spare time, Annica loves to be with animals at all times, everywhere she goes she has to find an animal to love, big or small - she even took her graduation photos with her favourite cows! Annica’s favourite place to be outside of work is the dog park with her rescue dog Dani.
