Registered Veterinary Technician/Hospital Manager

After completing a B.A in Psychology at the University of Guelph, Dayna originally planned to work with children, but changed her mind when she learned she could work with animals as a Veterinary Technician.    Dayna graduated from Seneca College in 1998, becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician that same year.  In addition to her role as an RVT, Dayna is the Hospital Manager. She has been with the WVH team since the hospital opened in 2005!

Her special interests are client relations, hands-on technical skills, and providing in-hospital care to our patients. She also holds a special place in her heart for the unhappy feline visitors, and works hard to make their experience as stress-free as possible. Dayna shares her home with Otis. He was supposed to be a temporary houseguest…but quickly won over Dayna’s heart with his very sweet & affectionate nature with people and his amazing purr…despite how grumpy his face looks all the time!


Registered Veterinary Technician

After completing a Bachelor of Science in Animal Biology at the University of Guelph, Jenny continued her education at U of G and completed the diploma of Veterinary Technology at the Ridgetown Campus. She became a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) in 2017 after successful completion of the Veterinary Technician National Examination.

Jenny has loved animals her whole life – and has worked with both large and small animals before joining our team at Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital in 2017. She enjoys all aspects of her role as an RVT, but is especially interested in surgery and anesthesia. Jenny has a calm and caring demeanor – and is able to put even our nervous patients more at ease!

Jenny has a menagerie of pets at home! Her pets include two dogs: Skye (a Husky) and Haiku (a Yellow Lab) and three cats (Viper, Dot & Sven) and two Guinea Pigs (Jekyll and Hyde).


Registered Veterinary Technician

Michaela graduated from the Veterinary Technician program at Georgian College in 2018. She completed the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE) later that year, successfully becoming an RVT.  She joined our team at Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital in 2019. Throughout her schooling and placements Michaela has developed a special interest in surgery and anesthesia.  Her dedication and love for her patients comes naturally and is genuinely shown in every interaction.  Currently the furry members of her family include two cats:  Ruby – a not-so-smart, but very lovable kitty and Merlin, who is deaf and full of mischief!


Lead Receptionist

Laura joined our team in 2009. She enjoys interacting with clients, and keeping the reception area organized and running smoothly. Laura is a true “mom” and keeps a close eye on all of the staff, ensuring we are doing okay, and even providing homemade treats for our staff meetings! She took a special interest in our clinic cats Lou Lou & Misha (who have both sadly passed), and was especially close to our dear clinic kitty Josie who passed away in 2012.

She has lovely big cat at home: Nick was surrendered to the Kitchener Waterloo Humane Society in 2019, and shortly thereafter joined Laura and her family in their home.  She loves crafting and the results are incredible!



Holly joined our reception team in 2022, and has been a welcome addition! She enjoys learning about the various ways we keep pets healthy. When not at work, Holly enjoys spending time with her beloved Chihuahua Winnie.


Animal Care Attendant

Cathie has worked at veterinary hospitals for many years. She initially volunteered at Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital when we opened in 2005, and then was offered an official position in 2007, and has been with us every since.  Known as the resident “cat whisperer,” she is renowned for her calming effect on our feline visitors.

Cathie shares her home with Millie, who enjoys helping with puzzles.

Clinic Cats – In Memory


Lou Lou

(In memoriam 2000 - 2020)

Lou Lou was surrendered to the Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital in 2005. She quickly became an integral part of our hospital team, providing lots of purring and the occasional crazy run through the treatment area to keep us laughing. Lou Lou was a character, often cuddling up with her best buddy Adelaide (Dayna’s dog), and “helping” the staff members by walking on their keyboards while they were working. Lou Lou loved dogs and kids — she would sometimes make her way to the reception area when she heard kids playing.   She was a very special part of our lives and is dearly missed.


(In memoriam 2008 - 2022)

Misha was surrendered to the Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital in 2018. Our intention was to make sure she was healthy and then find her a forever home, but we all quickly fell in love with her and decided her forever home was with us!  She was quick to greet clients at the reception desk, when not snoozing contently on her bed or in the cat tree by the window.  She will always be remembered and has a special place in our hearts.

Josie – a “Microchip Failure Story”

(in memoriam 1999 - 2012)

Josie was one of our clinic cats for over 4 years. Sadly, in October of 2012 she became very ill, and we had to say goodbye.
She is our “microchip failure story.” She was brought to the Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital as a stray, and as is our policy, we scanned her for a microchip. We were thrilled to see she had one, and told the Good Samaritans who brought her in that we would reunite her with her family. Unfortunately, the people who had microchipped Josie did not register their address or phone number with the microchip facility. We traced her microchip back and found that she had originally been adopted from the humane society 6 years prior at about 3 years of age. After a long, unsuccessful search for her owner, we decided that Josie would live with us.
Josie spent most of her time sleeping at the front desk or on top of the shelves in the pharmacy and became well known to our clients visiting the clinic. She was a true delight, always willing to share a purr and a head bump. She is still remembered fondly by our staff members who knew and loved her!
