    Hi everyone!  My name is Kayde and I have recently moved to the Sunshine Coast from Alberta.  Although originally from the lower Kootney's, I have lived in Alberta since 2004 and am super happy to be able to call BC home once again and am looking forward to exploring this beautiful area and making it my home. I have always had a passion for animals and have gotten to pursue it for many years as an RVT in Wildlife Rehabilitation, Small Animal and Emergency Medicine.  In the last five years I have transferred into management roles in the Veterinary Industry and have been loving it ever since, and am currently working on getting my CPVM. 

    In my spare time you can find me running with my nine year old Cane Corso Khyzik, relaxing with my cats or having pool/gardening time with my two year old rescue French Bulldog Cardi. I also enjoy volunteering in the community, kayaking, hiking, and reading in my spare time. Thank you to The Landing Veterinary Hospital for giving me an opportunity to explore and grow in this beautiful community and call it home!

    Julie has been with The Landing Veterinary Hospital since 2008. Julie’s previous career was in human health care and she greatly prefers working with animals (who can blame her?). She is in the veterinary field strictly for the kittens, especially the ones with extra toes. She feels puppies are cute too, but really, who can resist a kitten?

    Julie grew up in North Vancouver – Lynn Valley…Argyle where the tough kids were from. She’s not saying when. Her interests outside of veterinary medicine and when she is not planning, prepping, or playing in mud races, are travelling to warm, sandy places where different languages are spoken. 

    Julie Nichols currently lives in Sechelt with her husband Martin (the ambulance driver as some people call them) and periodically with their middle daughter Stephanie (when she isn’t gallivanting through Central America, or when she has time, or when she needs laundry to be done). Her oldest son, Christopher, has just finished University and is now out making his way in the world in the image of Indiana Jones. Their youngest daughter, Alannah is starting her third year at UVIC. 

    She currently has three pets: Sadie, a 10-year-old ADHD, high maintenance German Shepherd – and Tango and Turkish, two challenging SPCA rescue cats from a hoarding house with 42 orange cats.

Tamara #1

Tamara

Lead R.V.T.

    Tamara graduated from Fairview College in Alberta in 1991 as an Animal Health Technologist and has worked for The Landing Veterinary Hospital since 1892 (Ok, maybe it was 1992 but that’s still a really, really long time.)

    She dreamed of becoming a technologist since she was a little girl and her great grandfather was a Veterinarian. She has a special interest in dental care for pets and enjoys teaching pet owners about how to keep their pets healthy with preventive care. 

    Tamara likes to say that she learns something new every day and that work is like her home away from home. 

    On those rare occasions when she is not working, Tamara is really up for anything – she has recently taken up trail bike riding and acrylic painting. At home, Tamara has two unique cats: “Roo” bottle raised kitten – now a spoiled princess and “Dozer” failed clinic cat that thinks he is a dog.

    I have been at The Landing a short time and I am pleased to be part of this awesome team. I enjoy being in nature, doing pyrography (wood burning), spending time with my husband Rob, our cat Zelda and our son Kurtis when we are able to get together.
