Welcome to the team, Brina!

Brina grew up in Kelowna, BC.  In 2013 she completed the Veterinary Hospital Assistant Program at The Center for Arts and Technology in Kelowna.  Shortly after graduation she decided to move to Trail where her partner had relocated for work.  Since moving to the Kootenays, Brina has previously worked in several different fields including as a receptionist for a local law office and as a pharmacy assistant.  In 2019 she was excited to have the opportunity to join the team at West Kootenay Animal Hospital as a Veterinary Assistant.  She loves her work and being able to use her training to help animals and their owners.

Brina has always had a love for animals of all types and grew up in a home surrounded by pets.  She currently has a cat, named Kink for the shape of his tail, and a very energetic Wheaten Terrier named Reilly.  She enjoys being outdoors and likes learning about local wildlife and plants.

When not at work, Brina is most often found with a good book and her cat curled up in her lap.  Brina also enjoys yoga, sewing, gardening, baking and caring for an excessive number of house plants.
