Rachel Hoekstra, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician

“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.
