Sam Matheson

Veterinary Technician
Sam joined our team in 2006 after graduating from the veterinary technician program in Miramichi, NB. Growing up with horses, she knew at a young age that she wanted to be part of veterinary medicine. Sam has a special interest in the Lab, nursing care and a passion for educating clients. What she loves most about her job is the bond you develop with the patients and their owners. When not at work, Sam can be found spending time with her husband and their two girls. Fun fact, Sam plays the fiddle and her first pet was a sheltie named Howdie.
