Carissa was born and raised in Abbotsford, and is new to Campbell River and the hospital. She completed her assistant program at Douglas College in February 2019 and immediately started working at a 24hr Emergency Vet clinic. What an experience! Carissa has two furbabies herself; a senior Manx cat named Dren and a younger Manx named Arwen.

Other than her kitties, Carissa enjoys her time beachcombing, reading, writing and painting (always with the Office on in the background).
