About Penny

Penny graduated from the Animal Health Technology program at NAIT in 2007.  She spent several years working in a busy companion animal practice with a strong focus on orthopedic surgery and sports medicine.  It was there that she found her passion for animal rehabilitation.  In 2011 Penny completed a year-long process to obtain her Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner designation from the University of Tennessee.  Since that time she has helped hundreds of patients with mobility and quality of life.  Penny is proud to be one of a handful of RVT’s in Canada who have both their canine and equine rehabilitation certifications. 


In the past 14 years Penny has been privileged to treat a variety of individuals: post operative patients, high level sporting dogs, and has a special place in her heart for her senior patients. She uses a combination of manual therapies, laser therapy, and therapeutic exercises in her daily practice. Her true passion is to improve animals’ quality of life, young and old, through physical medicine and functional movement.  


In her off time, Penny enjoys spending time with family, both two legged and four legged.  She has recently ventured into the Rally Obedience and Conformation rings with her English Springer Spaniel, Crayola, and hopes to add some scent detection to her goals for this year.  Penny shares her home with a golden retriever named Zoei, three cats (Todd, Sheldon, and Priya), and her husband Paul.  You may also find her at the barn with her heart horse, Flo.
