The Clinic Staff

 

Chantal Friesen, RVT:

Chantal began working in the animal health field in 2006 as a part-time veterinary assistant. After only a few months of being a veterinary team member, she decided to apply for an Animal Health Technician (AHT) program. In 2009, she graduated from Douglas College with her AHT Diploma and later became a Registered AHT.

In March 2011, Chantal joined our veterinary team. Her number one priority is ensuring that our patients receive the best care possible. She considers each patient and client as an important part of our unique veterinary family.

When she's not at the clinic, Chantal enjoys spending time with RYAN (her husband), KAISER & NORBERT, and family and friends. Some of her favourite activities include reading, gardening, home renovation, hiking and outdoor sports, and walking/training/playing with KAISER.

KAISER is a very spoiled, mixed breed rescue from Mexico, who joined the Friesen family in February of 2014. He loves agility, training/learning, exploring, and sprinting/chasing, but is also content to just lay back and watch life happen around him. You may see Kaiser hanging out at the clinic or out-and-about walking around the Fort Langley area with Chantal & Ryan.

NORBERT is the Friesen family's newest addition. He is a Western Fence Lizard rescue from California, who joined the family in May of 2018. He was an unexpected but warmly welcomed addition to the family.

Chantal's dreams for the future as an RVT include furthering her education in animal anesthesia, behaviour, and rehabilitation. However, she will not turn down an opportunity to learn more about any field of veterinary medicine!

 

Christy Cameron, RVT

Christy entered into the world of Veterinary medicine in 1994 as an assistant at an Equine Veterinary Practice. After a few years there she left to pursue her passion; small animal medicine. Christy met Dr Mackenzie in 1997 and worked with him at two other small animal clinics prior to coming to the Fort Langley Veterinary Clinic where she was our Clinic Manager and Technician from July 1999 to July 2008. Christy is now a part of our team as a part-time technician.

Christy loves assisting our clients and is always willing to answer questions, listen to concerns, provide some education or listen to a story about your fur-kid! She attends to all of our patients needs; treating each patient as an individual. Although interested in all aspects of small animal care, Christy has a keen interest in anesthetics and preventative medicine. She has taken many continuing education seminars in these areas.

Christy has 1 fur-kid: Quinn (Pitbull Terrier). She also has a super-human husband. Christy can be found entertaining Quinn, kayaking, gardening, camping, reading or lounging on her deck with good friends & good food.

Christy's post secondary education includes: * General Studies at Douglas College, * VOA Diploma from Granville Business College, * AHT Diploma from Thompson Rivers University.

 

Kayla Gold, VA:

Kayla completed the Veterinary Hospital Assistant program at the Centre for Arts and Technology in Kelowna in July of 2014. She then worked at a few small and large animal clinics in the Okanogan before moving back to the Fraser valley where she joined our team at the Fort Langley Veterinary Clinic in December of 2016.  

 In her spare time Kayla enjoys going to the beach, crafting, playing softball, lounging in front of the T.V., and spending time with her fur-baby Pixie. Pixie is a spoiled, bossy, and adorably cute Pomeranian cross who joined her family in 2012.

 

Ashley Bartley, VOA:

Joined the Fort Langley Veterinary Clinic team on August 7th, 2019.

 

SARAH, Clinic Cat:

Sarah prefers to hang out behind the scenes, watching quietly from a corner or nestled up in a bed. She is shy with strangers but has stolen our hearts.

Sarah is a female spayed, black (with a white spot on chest), domestic long hair, who was born on April 19, 2004.

Sarah joined our team in June 2004. Her & her brother were adopted by Dr Dave simply by being cute & needing a home. Her brother (Adam) went off to a wonderful home but Sarah chose to stay with us.

Her trait that causes the most laughter is her obsession with carrying things in her mouth - syringe caps, dog cookies, thumb tacks - anything she can swipe when no one is looking.

When something goes missing, we know whom to ask!

 

FRAZIER, Clinic Cat - Rest In Peace

Frazier was a self proclaimed star, class clown, bully, prankster & trouble maker that we all adored!

Frazier was our male neutered, domestic short hair, black tripod that was born in January of 2004 and was with us from March 2005 to January 2017.

All who knew him loved him...It was hard not to... We miss you very much little buddy!
