Lyndsay joined the Gladys Pet Hospital team in September 2017. She completed her Vet Assistant course and became a Certified Vet Assistant in August of 2017, graduating from Vancouver Career College. She has 3 years of background in canine training. She lives at home with her 2 personal dogs; Chevy and Daisy, both rescues. She also has a bearded dragon named Sam, which she rescued about 3 years ago. Back in July she rescued a 10-day old kitten named Fergus Bean, who is now living a happy and healthy life with the rest of her crew. She is also an ongoing foster mom and rescue team member with Heart and Soul Dog and Cat Rescue Society. Outside of work Lyndsay is a mechanic by hobby, building her own 4X4 truck and working on her personal vehicles. Her love for animals became apparent when she rescued Chevy over 5 years ago and started her passion in saving those who need it the most.
Dawn is our veterinary technician. She studied Animal Health Technology at Thompson River University graduating in 2001. She worked in a fast-paced clinic in Surrey doing the majority of the dental work on top of her regular duties. She also served as a live-in nurse for overnight medications, feedings and care. Dawn took a leave from her career to have 2 children and focus on being a mom. During this time, she found her passion for newborn and baby photography. Dawn was very excited to step back into the animal world and join the team at Gladys.
Dawn has a huge passion for pets and has quite the zoo. Dawn has a 1 year old Lab x Maremma rescue pup named Jane, a fuzzy 2 year old lop bunny, Pepsi and 5…. yes 5 cats. Dawn had 2 cats when she started working at Gladys, Meow Meow (9) and Jones (5) but has added 3 rescue babes since. Ben and Suzy are 1-year old kitties that were bottle fed orphans, Dawn took them on at 2 weeks old with around the clock bottle feeding and they became permanent residents in her heart. She recently took on a kitten brought in to be euthanized due to having spinal bifida and not being able to go to the bathroom by herself. Dawn took one look at her big baby blue eyes and said don’t worry I will take her on! Daily bladder expression, diapers and newborn onesies are preparing Dawn and family who have recently been surprised with the news that a human baby will be joining the family at the end of the summer. When not at work, which seems like her second home, Dawn enjoys spending time with her family in between running around with her kids and their armload of activities.
Michaela is a Veterinary assistant who has roots in dog bathing and grooming. From her time working in a salon she was able to learn valuable skills such as keeping a calm and happy demeanor for the animals who are anxious, as well as being able to identify skin and coat issues based on feel, look and smell. When she first decided to get a dog, there were problems from the beginning. She came into the clinic and was able to receive treatment for her dog and this was our first chance to get to know her. Michaela joined the team soon after in July of 2017 and has learned everything she knows today by working on the job. Her favorite thing about the job itself is being able to be there for the animals and people who need the time and compassion. It is a mission of hers to make sure the animals around her are getting the proper care they need as well as having the owners needs and expectations met also. Michaela would like to remind everyone that she is not annoyed when you call and check in on your animal in our care. She will more than gladly talk to you and reassure you that things are going as planned and that everything is okay.
Alex is our Practice Manager and Veterinary assistant, she has been working with Doctor Mundi at Gladys since 2016. She studied pre-medicine at Valley City State University in North Dakota on a softball scholarship, working towards becoming a veterinarian. After a career ending injury she came back to BC and pursued other career options. The pull to working with animals was just too strong and she started at Gladys Pet Hospital in March 2016. Through the years working at the hospital, Alex has been able to establish great relationships and friendships with rescue groups within the community. Through these relationships she has obtained quite a full house of rescue animals. Alex shares her home with a black lab mix named Sky who is a medical nightmare! She has a disease that is comparable to systemic lupus called Canine Idiopathic Dermatomyositis and when her original family saw she was struggling she was kicked outside to fend for herself. She came to the rescue with a horrible mouth infection and multiple other problems. After working with Sky to help get to the bottom of her condition Alex fell in love with the feisty pooch, she now runs the household with no teeth, missing ½ an ear, no tail and a lack of hair in spots and she is loved beyond loved! Next comes a giant canine Chopper the big blue Great Dane, four frisky felines Harley, Odin, Kung Fu Panda and 19-year-old Agnes, a 3-legged hamster named Kevin and 6 beautiful heritage chickens Luanne, Nancy, Peggy, Penny, Lacey and Freckles… Oh and of course her husband Nathan. When she is not working, Alex enjoys growing fresh veggies in her garden, horseback riding, taking her dogs for truck rides and walks, camping and spending time outdoors listening to country music with her friends and family!
