🐾 Mia A. | Veterinary Receptionist
Mia joined our team in 2020 and loves the energy at the clinic. She is a great multitasker, and can be seen answering your calls, emails and in-person questions – always with a smile 🙂 She has two dogs at home, Kiko and Chloe, whom she simultaneously refers to as “queens” as well as her sons.
Outside the clinic, she has a passion for playing the piano, and studied at Laurier and York University for Music. During her free time, she loves catching up on her favourite movies and shows (her favourite Disney movie is Tangled) and discovering new rabbit holes on Youtube.
