Rob graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1991, where he also met his wife and business partner Elaine. After practicing as both associates and later as practice owners, Rob and Elaine came to the West Kootenays in 1997, taking ownership of the West Kootenay Animal Hospital and starting a family.
While the ensuing years of child rearing and running a practice have been very busy, Rob would tell you that there is no where else he would rather live and work. Working with an amazing team of people while helping concerned owners provide care for their animal loved ones is a privilege and pleasure.
Living here also provides Rob with ample opportunity to enjoy the mountains, woods, rivers and lakes he loves. When not at the work, Rob can be found mountain biking, cross country skiing, or kayaking, often in the company of his Cairn Terrier, Maisy, who is determined she will one day catch those squirrels on their adventures together. When not enjoying the outdoors, Rob can be found at home reading and drinking coffee in the company of Stella, his not-so-keen on adventure snuggle dog. That works too!
