Rachel Hoekstra, RVT
"I have always been interested in medicine and physiology, and as most of us in the veterinary field, love animals. Graduating Class of 2019--St. Lawrence College." I started at Hillcrest Animal Hospital in May 2019. The part of veterinary medicine that interests me the most is anesthesia/pharmacology and immunology. My favourite part of my job is the constant growth and expansion in veterinary medicine, there are always more things to learn. I love all the staff, we work well as a team and it feels like family.
Some fun facts about me are that I have a keen interest in wildlife and have worked with wolves. I also have a Bluetick Hound named Hailey.
