Office Manager / Reception / Technician / Lab
Joanne started working for Blyth Vet Services back in 1999. She started as an assistant in reception and has grown into the position of office manager. Joanne has her eyes and fingers on the pulse of all that goes on here.
Joanne lives in Blyth with her husband, Herb. She enjoys gardening, cycling, and spending time with her family (especially her grandchildren). She enjoys walking to work everyday and stays very involved with her church. She doesn’t have any pets at home, but she does have a nice aquarium (and also keeps the clinic aquarium looking fresh and clean).
Registered Veterinary Technician
Charlotte grew up just outside of Wingham and had the opportunity to raise a few rabbits and calves of her own in the past. Throughout highschool she worked at a local horse stable doing chores and assisting with riding lessons. Charlotte did a co-op placement at Blyth Vet Services in her final year of highschool, which helped confirm her interest to study veterinary medicine as a vet tech. She then went to school in Ridgetown taking the “U of G for Veterinary Technology” program and graduated, becoming registered in 2017. After graduation she worked for a year as a small animal technician at a mixed practice, and also worked part time at a cow/calf beef farm outside of Blyth. Charlotte continues to work at the beef farm to this day. For two summers she collected blood samples from racehorses at the Clinton Raceway.
Some of Charlotte’s hobbies include small flock sheep and beef cow farming, horseback riding, hiking, archery, drawing, reading, and kayaking. Charlotte has been working part time as vet tech and also in the office at Blyth Vet Services since the beginning of 2021.
