Born in England, Julie’s family emigrated to Canada when she was 4. Spending many hours at the stable with her Dad as a wee one, the love for horses ran thick in her blood. Teenage years were spent “hanging out at the barn”, and not “hanging out with boys”! Julie has a strong connection with all animals, both big and small which lead her to the University of Guelph, graduating in 1997 with her Hons. B.Sc (Agr.) majoring in Animal Science. Upon graduating Julie started her career at a local small animal practice, and also married her high school sweetheart, Larry. She joined LVH in 2012 and her cheerful helpful nature makes her a great asset to our team. Julie and Larry happily live on their farm with a son and daughter, two house cats, and a zoo of farm critters consisting of: a donkey, horses, sheep, ducks, a pot bellied pig and super spoiled barn kitties! Julie will never forget her heart horses, Mac & Murphy, and her heart dogs, Murray & Millie. Julie joined the LVH team in 2012. She is very thankful for the wonderful team she gets to work with, and for the clients and patients that give us the opportunity to shine in our field.
