Amberlee Boutilier

Client Care Specialist

Amberlee graduated from NSCC Tourism & Hospitality and attended Maritime Business College Veterinary Assistant Program prior to calling Companion Animal Hospital home in 2006. You can find her busy behind the front desk, sipping on coffee and likely sharing a laugh with a client. Amberlee has a love for both dogs and cats but everyone knows that Jack Russell Terriers and Beagles hold a special place in her heart.

Amberlee lives outside the city (country girl roots) with her husband and two beautiful little girls. They share their home with Mew Kitty, the sweetest fluff ball around.


Black History & Veterinary Medicine - Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb (1923-1992)

Today's medical historian of colour is Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb. Dr. Webb graduated with her DVM with our previous blog star Dr. Hinton, as one of the first female African American veterinarians in the US. Both of these great women were also the first black members of the Women’s Veterinary Medicine Association. She also founded the School of Veterinary Medicine of North Carolina State University. In 1971, she became the first African American woman in the North Carolina General Assembly, serving on many committees including serving as the Chairperson of Minority Affairs, president of the Democratic Women of NC, and a member of the NC Council on Sickle Cell Syndrome.   So you can see despite so many obstacles Dr. Webb was still able to make history and so can we!   Written by: Ashley G, VT   Resources:
