Karen S. RVT

Karen has worked at the Ajax Animal Hospital since she was a student at Ajax High School. She started as a part time veterinary assistant and receptionist and became an Animal Health Technician because of her love for pets. She is currently working with us part-time as she has a busy family with four children: Alexander, Victoria and the twins, Catharine and Elizabeth. 

She attended the University of Toronto where she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Her studies then took her to the King City campus of Seneca college for 2 years where she graduated as an AHT.  Karen is certified and enjoys providing Therapeutic Laser Treatments for our patients.

In addition to looking after her family, Karen shares her home with her husband Andrew, gorgeous  Golden Retrievers, Finn and Ranger, and three handsome cats, MacDuff (AAH adoptee), Rikki (who was brought home from the barn by her children) and Sherman, who is a lucky, black long-haired cat. She also has 2 horses named Pepper and Basil who she visits and rides daily at Kendal Hills.

In her spare time, Karen enjoys attending and cheering at many horse-shows with her daughters. Personally, she enjoys travel and is a bit of a foodie.  She can also be found working out, horseback riding, spending time with her family and reading.
