With a move to Lethbridge to complete her degree at the U of L, Virginia was drawn to all that the city has to offer and never returned back to Calgary upon graduation. Starting at Family Pet Hospital in 2015, Virginia’s background in business with an emphasis on customer service and servant leadership soon moved her to the roll of Practice Manager. Virginia ensures that daily operations run smoothly in the hospital, allowing the medical team to deliver quality patient care in an up to date facility. From the time you walk through the door, Virginia works with her team to make sure your experience is positive. Family Pet’s support of the community and surrounding area is very important to Virginia. Providing in-hospital student mentorship, collaborating with various rescue organizations, supporting Tails of Help and the Alberta Spay and Neuter Task Force, as well as working with the veterinary community in Lethbridge are all integrated into Virginia’s leadership plan. Virginia does not seem to slow down outside of work either, with dirt bike races on the calendar most weekends in the summer. She enjoys camping with family and the company of friends. If you can find her at home, Virginia and her boyfriend are entertained by the antics of their Frenchton named Rodney, their black cat, Chicken Wing, along with their newest addition, a French Bulldog name Rory-Roo.
