Sales and Office Coordinator, Equine Sales Specialist
With a strong suit in mathematics and a keen attitude towards school I knew that earning a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering from Queen’s University would be a great platform for my future. With that education in tow, I began my career in the world of finance trading stocks and immersing myself in data analysis. In my heart of hearts, I knew the city was not the place for me and I was ready to embark on a big life change.
My passion for ponies (or any equine large or small) led me across the world to Australia, up the Rockies in Alberta, then back home to Ontario as a professional horsewoman. After becoming fully familiar with the outer workings of the horse, I took a job discovering everything under the hide working for an equine Internal Medicine Specialist at a mobile veterinary practice.
Now in my role as the Sales and Office Coordinator at Eickmeyer Veterinary Technology I look forward to sharing a blend of my skills and passion with our team and clients.
Outside of work you can find me adventuring with Heidi, my superstar mare, or digging around in my passionately planned, yet extremely overcrowded gardens.
Warehouse and Office Assistant
Growing up in rural Ontario breeding and raising golden retrievers with my family, I always knew I wanted to work with animals. I enjoyed playing lots of sports, riding horses, and loved my jobs working both on farms, and in a small animal veterinary practice.
I graduated for the University of Guelph, Ridgetown campus in 2009 from the Veterinary Technology program and became and RVT the following summer. I then wanted to expand my knowledge in livestock and large animal, so I returned to Ridgetown campus to complete the agriculture program. I just couldn’t stay away from cows!
I am excited to put my 15 years of experience in the animal field to use in my roll with Eickemeyer as an Office and Warehouse Assistant, and I look forward to learning even more, and growing my career in the industry.
When I’m not a work I can be found spending time with my family and friends. I love the outdoors, and I enjoy spending as much time as I can at the cottage, hiking, sledding, kayaking, biking, and most of all fishing. My 6-year-old golden Chief is always at my side.
Central & Eastern Territory Representative, Customer Support
Young me would bring home every creature that needed a home; you can imagine what transpired…my poor mother…!
After University I decided to finally follow my instincts and proudly graduated from Georgian College with my Diploma in Veterinary Technology. I then became registered and with my RVT status in tow I worked at a variety of clinic settings. I was completely fascinated with the medicine, the science, and of course ALLLL the animals.
When I had my second daughter I decided to leave clinic, change gears, and take on a new challenge in Orthopedics Sales/ Product management. The opportunity then presented itself to work with Courtney and her team at Eickemeyer Canada – I did not hesitate. I am so proud to be part of such an amazing and supportive team
Central and Western Sales Representative
When I was little, I wanted to own a fruit stand, but time passed by and I decided that maybe there was a better fit out there for me! I knew early on that this would involve the Veterinary field. I attended the University of Guelph where I obtained my Honours Biological Science degree. After graduation, I started working at a small animal practice. From there I found myself following my dreams to complete the Veterinary Technician program at Seneca College and earning my RVT designation.
I worked in a variety of clinical settings and wore many hats in practice life, including roles as both Technician and Hospital Manager. I soaked it all in, learning, and growing in each setting.
After 20+ years as a Veterinary Technician, I decided to take a walk in the world of marketing and communications. It was fulfilling work, but I was missing veterinary medicine.
Along came the opportunity to blend all my skills and experience into one dream job. As a territory representative for Eickemeyer I can take all my expertise from veterinary clinical setting and combine it with my marketing experience, to help practices grow and thrive.
I share my home with my husband and our two teenage daughters. We also have two wonderful quirky dogs, Wrigley and Loki.
In 2008, Courtney began her veterinary career in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her passion for animals grew quickly and in 2011 Courtney graduated from Thompson Rivers University with an Animal Health Technician diploma and became a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT). While completing her diploma, Courtney started working with an orthopedic and soft tissue surgeon and became lead technician.
As a graduate of McMaster University, Thompson Rivers University and as a former Instructor at Maritime Business College, Courtney is a strong advocate for continually challenging yourself to be at the forefront of veterinary technology and techniques in this competitive field.
After a successful career in clinic, Courtney took on a new role in 2017 selling capital equipment and orthopedic implants. Beginning September 2020, Courtney’s was excited about putting her experience on both sides of the veterinary industry to work for Eickemeyer Veterinary Technology.
Outside of work-life, Courtney and her family live in and continue to discover Halifax with their two rescue dogs, Jack and Steve. If they’re not at home gardening, you’ll probably find the Roses canoeing, camping, or finding a new look-off or waterfall.
