Ashley Goss

Veterinary Technician
Ashley is originally from Yarmouth and moved to HRM for school. She graduated Maritime Business College in 2019 and started working with us in 2020. Ashley has always known she wanted to work with animals in some way, but it was not until 5 years after obtaining a business diploma in marketing she discovered the position of veterinary technician. She always grew up with animals and has always had strange animals like hedgehogs, rats, mice, etc. as well as cats and dogs. She is most interested in Zoo medicine, exotics, and behaviour. Her favourite thing about this job is that you are always learning new things. Even if it's not related to medicine, clients might tell you things you didn't know. When not at work, Ashley lives at home with her fiance, her cat Blackjack, Terrier mix dog Meeko, Husky Baloo, and Bearded Dragon named Jerry. She loves creating things and going outside for activities such as hiking with her dogs, making crafts with her niece and nephew, and traveling. Fun fact, Ashley has lived and worked in Nunavut and Northern Alberta.


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:
