Andrea has had a lifelong attachment to animals, and becoming a veterinarian was a decision made when she was in grade 4. She went to the University of Manitoba, earning a degree in Agriculture (Animal Science) first, and then was accepted at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. Andrea graduated in 1992, and came to Weyburn to start working for Dr Gary Hoium.
Andrea met her husband while on the job. She lives with her husband, two daughters (one is leaving the nest), two cats, and three dogs on a farm where they get to enjoy the prairie wildlife and the great outdoors. Current interests include photography, hunting, and training and testing her two Drahthaars.
Andrea enjoys working in Weyburn. The community was welcoming when she first started, and has been a wonderful place to have a career, and also raise a family. The bonds formed with numerous clients over the years will be treasured forever.
