Veterinary Technician


You can’t buy love –
but you can rescue it.Annonymous

Jennifer joined our technical team in February of 2017 but in fact, she joined our Renforth Family long before that. Jennifer’s parents have been much loved clients at Renforth for almost 30 years. With her goal to study veterinary technology already firmly in mind, as a teenager she was eager to find a part-time job working in a veterinary clinic. The rest is history, as they say and Jen quickly became one of our all time favourite student assistants. She worked with us afterschool and on weekends essentially up until the day she left to pursue her diploma of Veterinary Technology at Algonquin College in 2014. Jen jokes that “we just can’t get rid of her” but the truth is, we would just never want to let her go.
Jenn grew up in Etobicoke and still lives close by. She lists nutrition and animal behaviour as special clinical interests but watching her in the clinic, it is undeniable that her heart is most invested in the loving care of all of our patients. Jenn ‘s kind and gentle nature along with her clever wit and great sense of humour make her a delightful addition to our team. As a recent graduate of the Veterinary Technician Diploma program, her knowledge and understanding of the latest concepts, newer ideas and procedures in the field of veterinary technology is a perfect compliment to our more experienced technicians.
