Dr. Becky has always loved all living creatures and knew by age 11 that she wanted to be a veterinarian. She grew up with various family pets, including dogs, cats, rats, and guinea pigs. Many summer family camping trips brought her closer to wildlife, and Dr. Becky could not wait to catch a frog or snake to take a closer look or rescue a worm or slug off the trail path!
To gain the experience she would need to get into vet school, Dr. Becky volunteered at the SPCA, secured a part-time job at a small animal clinic, and milked dairy cows on the weekends. In 2006, Dr. Becky’s lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian came true when she graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph. One of the many highlights of her time at OVC was the opportunity to travel to South America as part of the Global Vets program, where she volunteered to assist with rural spay/neuter clinics.
After graduation, Dr. Becky spent the first ten years of her career as an associate veterinarian at a small animal hospital in Mississauga. As her family grew, she and her husband decided to relocate and settle in Bradford.
Dr. Becky joined Holland Street Veterinary Services in 2016, where she continues to enjoy working in the community she and her family are part of. As a general practitioner, Dr. Becky enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, including internal medicine, preventative care, and soft tissue surgery.
Dr. Becky and her family own a rescued epileptic English Springer Spaniel named Jax and a canary named Ginger. Dr. Becky is busy chauffeuring her kids to their sports and extracurricular activities when not working. She enjoys reading, ice skating, and spending time with her family in her spare time.
Tayler Joined Holland Street Veterinary Services in the spring of 2018 and is now the Lead RVT. She graduated from Seneca’s Veterinary Technician program in the summer of 2017 and wrote her registration exam immediately after that. Tayler was raised on a farm where she developed a love for animals, large and small. Tayler has a horse named Maya, A Bernese Mountain Dog named Tucker, and two cats named Cody and Luna, along with a few more furry friends, including donkeys, goats, llamas, chickens, peacocks, and ducks. Tayler is currently pursuing continuing education in Ultrasonography.
Lisa joined the Holland Street Vet team in the fall of 2021, coming to us with several years of experience in the emergency and critical care field, having worked previously at a VEC nearby for just over six years. This was her first foray into the world of regular practice, and it has been nothing but a great experience. Lisa looks forward to continuing to grow with all the wonderful friends she’s made at this clinic. Lisa graduated from Brock University in 2013 with a degree in Biological Sciences, then graduated with honours from the Veterinary Technician program at Sheridan College in 2015. She has maintained her registered (RVT) status ever since.
In her spare time, she loves relaxing by watching Netflix, crystal shopping, or doing little art projects – that is, of course, when she does not have to tend to her feline fur baby Elsa’s every need (in the form of lengthy cuddles that take up most of her time) - worth it though.
All of her life, Trisha's two passions were flying and animals. She was a Flight Attendant for many years until COVID happened, and she returned to school to become a Certified Veterinary Assistant. She joined the Holland Street Vet team in November 2020 and has never looked back. She can be found part of the time working reception and the rest in our exam rooms assisting with your pets. She is Certified Cat Friendly and is trained in a Fear Free approach to pet handling. She is a bonafide Enchanted Cat Lady Club member and is a cat mom to 4 beautiful kitties at home aged 4 - 15 years old. She spends her spare time being a loving Auntie to our two clinic cats and all of her friend's furbabies.
