Cassandra was born and raised in Ottawa and has recently returned to the city after graduating from the University of Toronto.  She has always been fascinated by all types of animals, but when it comes to having pets she always chooses cats! She currently has two kittens of her own named Rosie and Eevee (since she’s also a big Pokemon fan)! In her spare time, you can find her playing video games or diving into a good book.

Meghan was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, raised in Ottawa, and graduated from Algonquin College’s Veterinary Assistant program. Her hobbies include reading and cheering for her favourite baseball team (GO BLUE JAYS!). She lives with 4 four very special cats: Bella, Oscar, Sophie, and Emma. At work her coworkers call her “pin cushion” because if there’s a sassy cat, she’s right in there to help. If there is an abscess in the clinic, you’ll find her very close by.

Raised in Ottawa and after running into many career opportunities, I have gratefully fallen into this career. I’ve been with Beechwood going on five years. They have taken me under their wing just like family. I have grown to learn and love this field of work. I’m happy to come to work every day. I am a proud fur mom of one dog, four cats, one bird & a turtle. My zoo keeps me going always and I love every minute of it.
