Say hi to Sunny!

Sunny grew up in Chino Hills, California. She did gymnastics for 20 years and received a scholarship to compete for the University of Illinois Women’s Gymnastics Team becoming an All-American on the uneven bars and balance beam. Sunny loves her university and will always hail alma mater and bleed orange and blue.

Currently, Sunny is attending San Juan College, Veterinary Technology Distance Learning Program. In 2019, she moved to Rossland and had the opportunity to join the team at West Kootenay Animal Hospital as a Veterinary Assistant. Sunny has always loved animals and grew up being surrounded by them. Her family has 13 dogs, 11 chihuahuas, a pomeranian and a terrier.

During the winter months, Sunny is a ski instructor at Red Mountain. She enjoys skiing, hiking, gardening and crafts. She has traveled all over the world, even living in Tonga for a year working with the Peace Corps as an English Language Facilitator. Working at West Kootenay Animal Hospital has been very rewarding for Sunny and she couldn’t be happier to continue her journey on becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician.
