Michelle Landry, DVM

Unlike most people, it took Dr. Michelle a long time to figure out what she wanted to do in life. After six years of undergraduate studies (Biology and Geology) and three different universities, she decided she wanted to be a veterinarian. 4 years later (flashback 2004), Dr. Michelle graduated from the Atlantic College of Veterinary Medicine in Charlottetown, PEI. Shortly after graduation, she moved to Barrie, where she met her now husband, Chris, a Bradford boy. You can bring the East Coaster to Ontario, but you can never shake the East Coast out, and the family loves to travel back “home” to Cape Breton.
As if life with two toddlers and a bunch of animals wasn’t busy enough, Dr. Michelle and Chris decided to open a practice in Bradford in 2012. You may occasionally glimpse Chris and their now-grown daughters, Sophie and Alexandra, helping at the practices. When she is not busy carting the kids to their activities or at work, you may find her outdoors engaging in her favorite activities: camping, cross-country skiing, hiking, filling her birdfeeders, or gardening, or she might be in the kitchen trying out new recipes or maybe curled up with Mojo, a tea (or a glass of red wine) and a good book. See if you can guess if the scratches on her arms are from thorny things or clawed critters…
The family is blessed to share their lives with Poppy the Rottweiler, Mojo the cat, many fish, five laying hens, a rooster named Mr. Cuckles, and a corn snake named Willow.
Dr. Michelle is passionate about continuing education and is certified in veterinary acupuncture and Western veterinary herbal medicine and is currently working on her Chinese Veterinary Medicine herbal certification.

Rebecca Ball,
DVM

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.

Lisa<br>Registered Veterinary Technician  photo

Lisa
Registered Veterinary Technician

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.

Trisha<br>Animal Care Attendant / Receptionist  photo

Trisha

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.

Tianna
Animal Care Attendant / Receptionist

Tianna has been in the veterinary medicine industry from a very young age. Not only has she worked in regular veterinary practices, but she has also worked in an emergency/referral facility and a wildlife sanctuary.
Tianna shares her home with a parakeet named Norbert and a main coon named Ezra. Tianna loves all animal friends, including exotics, but her favourite visitors at the clinic are the bully breeds.
If Tianna is not at the reception desk with her fellow gingers Ginny and Fred or in an exam room assisting one of the Doctors, you can find her hopelessly and longingly waiting for her favourite group BTS to do a Canadian tour.
