In 1997, he completed his clinical internship at prestigious Purdue University in the U.S.A. and then moved back to beautiful British Columbia.

Veterinary Technician Assistant
After finishing her Bachelor’s degree and working at another veterinary hospital for some time, Fion joined the Lansdowne Animal Hospital team as a full-time veterinary technician assistant in 2018. Under the mentorship of Dr Rana, Fion is currently in the 3rd year of her distance education Diploma for becoming a Registered Veterinary Technologist through prestigious Thompson Rivers University (Kamloops). She has been a great asset to our hospital. She has always been interested in the animal health field, which is sparked by her love for all furry critters, large and small. Growing up with hamsters established a soft spot for rodents in her heart. Apart from working tirelessly at Lansdowne Animal Hospital, she volunteers with a wide variety of animals, reaching out in any way she can. In her spare time, Fion enjoys reading.
Kayla joined our team of professionals in September 2021. Her immense love of animals and great customer service makes her a welcome addition to our team. She currently has a dog named Tucker, a ball Python snake and a gecko. She spent a number of years volunteering at the Richmond BCSPCA.
