Azy’s aspirations to work with furred and feathered friends drew her into the wildlife and veterinary world over twenty years ago. After several years of managing a Wildlife Education and Volunteers program, Azy decided to return to her academic ambitions and complete her degree in the Applied Animal Biology Honours program at UBC. Here, as a part of the Animal Welfare department, Azy also took a keen interest in farm animal welfare research and had the opportunity of working on two published articles. While in school, Azy continued to expand her practical experience as a Veterinary Assistant, Wildlife Ranger, and Rehabber.
Azy feels extremely privileged to be a part of the BC SPCA team, putting welfare theories into practice. If she is not at one job or another, Azy can be found trotting through the woods while listening to stories of Atwood and the likes. Surrounded by an array of beloved woodland creatures, Azy shares a small mountain-top cabin with her partner Anton and their two cats, Sylvester and Kato.
