I work in the Large Animal Hospital as an overnight technician. Also work in the Small Animal ICU and Primary Emergency Service during those shifts. I have a keen interest in bovine and small ruminant medicine. I also really enjoy small animal emergency medicine and working with cats!

I currently have a pet cat named Bea and a pet cow named Gladys. In my spare time I run a small beef farm with my boyfriend and spending my time gardening and afternoons at the beaches.

Jihae Lee

I'm an RVT and I went to vet tech school at The State University of New York-Alfred State College. I moved to Canada in 2014 and completed a Bachelor of Science in Biology at University of Prince Edward Island.

I primarily work with Small Animal Internal Medicine service at AVC but I also help with ICU, Triage, and Community Practice. My best interest is to provide a good quality of treatments to the animals who are suffering from advanced illnesses/diseases but I also enjoy the process of quickly assessing/treating sick patients in emergency cases.

I spent my childhood in Germany and South Korea and moved to North America in 2009. I'm currently settled in PEI and I enjoy this beautiful island with delicious seafoods and friendly people. My fiancé and I have two lovely cats, Beau and Marcy, and a Border Collie, Maia, who's sweet and smart. In our free time, we love going hiking and camping in the woods as well as playing board games and video games.
