Nicole has lived in Hope most of her life. She always knew she wanted a career with animals which led her to the Animal Health Technology program at Caribou College (now Thompson Rivers University) in Kamloops. She graduated as an RVT in 1991 and worked at several veterinary clinics in the Fraser Valley before starting at Kent Veterinary Clinic in 1993. Outside of work Nicole enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She enjoys many outdoor activities and looks forward to being able to travel more in the future.
