Reception/Assistant

 

    Paige came to Little Creek Vet with 2 years of veterinary reception experience and has settled right into her role as a receptionist at Little Creek! Paige’s favourite part about being a receptionist at a veterinary clinic is building strong relationships with clients and their fur children. She is currently enrolled at Mount Royal University and she is working towards achieving an English degree and an after-degree in Education. Paige has two of her own fur children. Clyde is her handsome orange cat who is 10 years young, as he is still playful like a kitten! Oakley is her gorgeous black, flat-coated retriever cross. Oakley was a rescue, so he does have his silly quirks, but everyone around him learns to love all of those quirks. Paige is not specifically a dog-person or a cat-person, but simply an animal person- Paige does not discriminate, she loves them all!

    Paige is very eager and proud to now be a part of such a caring and supportive team at Little Creek, and she cannot wait to grow close with all of the clients and their adorable fur-children!

   Kenzie began working in the animal medicine industry in 2013, and joined the Little Creek team in 2016. At Little Creek Kenzie works as one of the vet assistants, and occasionally helps out as a receptionist.

    Currently Kenzie is a full time nursing student working towards completing her degree.  She has three kitties; Mouse, a sixteen year old grey tabby with the personality of a kitten, Simba, a nine year old domestic medium hair that will talk your ear off, and Kira, a skittish little orange tabby who has earned the name “Fraidy Cat”.

   Kenzie loves working at Little Creek because she gets to spend her hours caring for animals, and working with a great team. Her favorite moments are when she gets to assist with puppy and kitten appointments. Kenzie values her experiences working in animal medicine because she knows it will benefit her in her future as a registered nurse.
