Here is what some of our past and current team members wanted to share about why they love being a part of our team...
"WAH has been my second home, and my co-workers have been my family for the past several years. I've been a part of this hospital for the majority of my career and couldn't imagine working as a vet tech anywhere else. We have created such a positive and supportive work environment where everyone feels included, respected, and free to be their most authentic self. I genuinely enjoy and care about everyone that I work with which is truly rare in most clinics. We don't have "drama" and everyone is appreciated for their role in our clinic because we believe every role is just as important as the next. Together we strive to provide the best and the most current veterinary medicine, as well as some alternative therapies that really make us unique!" - Derek Riley, Registered Veterinary Technologist
"Working at Wascana Animal Hospital was truly one of the best jobs I could’ve imagined for myself. They provided me with a positive work environment and made coming to work feel fun. The team dynamic was always perfect, it felt like we were all part of a family. I felt appreciated and respected on a daily basis, and was able to maintain a good work-life balance. The compassion and quality of care provided is fantastic- I was confident in the services we were providing and that the needs of the patients were always the top priority. I feel genuinely lucky to have had the opportunity to work with such an amazing team doing a job that I always felt comfortable and happy doing. Wascana Animal Hospital really is a fabulous place to work, my time spent as a member of their team has made such a positive impact on my life and helped me grow immensely as a technician. - Lauren Cuzner, Registered Veterinary Technologist
"I have had the pleasure of working at WAH for the past two years as an associate veterinarian and have had nothing but a positive experience. I love the clinic culture and every team member that I work with. Having work-life balance is extremely important to the clinic's owners, and everyone's time outside of hospital hours is valued. I can probably count on one hand the number of times that I have had to stay late (barring emergency situations), a rare feat in most clinic settings! The facility is wonderful, clean and functional, it is also equipped with everything that I could ask for. I love the appointment style of this clinic and its focus on preventative medicine. The case variety is incredibly interesting without the chaotic pace of an emergency clinic. The level of medicine practised at this clinic is also top-notch and we continue to strive to improve every day. I think the biggest thing that sets Wascana Animal Hospital apart from other clinics, is truly feeling valued and like you are part of a collaborative team." - Dr. Erica Sims, Veterinarian
"I love working at WAH for a lot of reasons, but my top one is because of the respect and equality. Every team member at WAH respects and loves one another like family. We are always willing to help another team member when needed or if we notice someone that needs help. When I first came to WAH I was anxious about how my first few weeks would go, but everyone was so welcoming, friendly, and genuinely cares about each other! Everyone always strives to do their best and that motivation comes from working in such a friendly and respectful environment." - Tonya Jacobson, Client Service Representative
"There are so many reasons that I could give for why I love working at WAH, but ultimately it comes down to integrity. I am so proud of the quality of care that we provide which I feel sets us apart. As well, I don't just come to work as an employee, I come to work as part of a family. It has been refreshing to be a part of a positive and supportive team. I can't imaging working anywhere else!" - Jennifer Ford, Registered Veterinary Technologist
