Sam Matheson

Registered 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.


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:
