Angela Misasi, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician

Greetings from the other side of the plexi-glass! My name is Angela and although you can't see, I assure you I'm smiling. As a new hire with Hillcrest Animal Hospital you can often find me playing my favourite games "What was I doing" and "Where does this belong?"

While I'm a new hire with this clinic, I started my journey in veterinary medicine over 15 years ago as a high school co-op student. I graduated from Ridgetown College in 2007, so long ago that they have since changed the name!

Upon graduation I headed vaguely "West," landing in Calgary. Calling it my home for the next 5 years working in several clinics and meeting my now husband Boyd. He's my favourite souvenir from my time there.

Fast forward a few years and an epic cross-country adventure in a 99 Astro van named Gertie. We've relocated to a lovely home in Wooler with our senior German Shepherd Ember and two cats Gilbert & Arnie.

That brings us to now. Can I please pet your dog?!
