Working at the Vancouver Animal Emergency Clinic has been her “dream job.” Coleen joined the team in 1985 and continues to expand her knowledge and experience. Coleen has completed numerous continuing education programs in veterinary management and bookkeeping. She also has a Certificate in Accounting from Douglas College.

Her four-legged companions are two cats, Rosie and Gracie, along with an energetic Great Dane named Maisy. Her interests include reading, family, exploring the woods, and volunteering with girl guides.
