Registered Veterinary Technologist, RVT
Karman joined our team in 2015 as a Registered Veterinary Technologist. She graduated from the Veterinary Technology Program at Douglas College in 2011 and brings to our team her fantastic humour and love of all animals. Her favourite part about her job is being able to calm the scared and or nervous patients. Her goal is to have all the patients leave the hospital calm and happy and then return with a wag or purr.
Growing up in a family with members that were very allergic to animals meant that Karman endless hours as a child watching the Discovery Channel and learning all that she could about the amazing world of animals. She was so inspired by the people that she saw in these shows, caring for animals so passionately that it made her pursue a career in animal medicine. At 15 years old she started volunteering at the Vancouver SPCA and worked in the cat ward, at the same time she was employed in a pet store caring for all the little rodents.
Karman is owned by her two cats, Andy and Penny. Andy is a young, grey and white domestic short hair who likes to get into trouble. He enjoys getting counter surfing, stealing food and occasionally he finds it necessary to pluck fur off Penny or groom her till she is ‘just right’. Penny is a beautiful long hair girl who was found dumped in an alley way and after her rough start in life she enjoys a life rich in petting and cat toys.
Karman enjoys a life full of surprises and action. She loves hosting dinner parties and meeting new people. An average week consists of snuggling her cats, getting outside, church events and spontaneous unplanned shenanigans.
