  • Anna Baudou

She graduated from Thompson Rivers University as a Registered Animal Health Technologist in 2002 and joined us Summer 2005.Anna loves the young kittens and puppies who come in to visit us. She feels our work with the Animal Care Society is particularly rewarding.Anna lives with her husband and furry kids (1 dog and her cats and a few horses) on a farm outside Vernon.

  • Katrina Moen

    Katrina Moen grew up in the Lower Mainland area. She moved to Vernon in 2007 to take a position at Crescent Falls Veterinary Hospital as an assistant. It was already her plan to enroll in the distance learning program for the Registered Animal Health Technology program offered at Thompson Rivers University, a three year program which offers students the opportunity to study and work simultaneously to achieve their diploma. After graduating in December 2010, she chose to stay at our clinic as a valued member of the team.Katrina finds the variety her duties offer her very rewarding. The technical aspect of the job (prepping the patient for surgery, placing iv catheters) is her favourite part, but client education is a close second.Katrina enjoys hiking, having recently completed the West Coast Trail. She lives with her cats, Thumper and Diablo – both rescue animals acquired since working at the clinic.

  • Kathy Clarkson

    Kathy Clarkson grew up in Vernon and joined our clinic in 2006 as Receptionist. While at first, it was a job to pay the bills until she knew what she really wanted to do, she quickly realized this was a perfect place for her! She has grown to know most of our clients and their pets, and appreciates the one on one interactions that fill her day. Kathy has a young daughter, and together with her husband and cat, Dude, they enjoy the Okanagan life!

  • Lisa Elder

    Lisa Elder is one of our part-time receptionists. She grew up in the South Okanagan where she first started working in a Vet clinic. Once she moved to Vernon, she gravitated toward the career of veterinary receptionist once again, and came to join us in 2005. With a busy family life (3 young boys, 3 cats and a lab named Jenna) and her other career as a teacher’s aide during the week, Lisa is always on the go. Despite this, her number one attribute is taking time with clients and their pets to let them know they are her first priority!

Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Finding a superb vet was a priority for our 13 year old Collie, Braidie. We were extremely fortunate to discover Dr. Ringness who is deeply caring and supportive of her patients and their humans. She explains treatment options clearly and works with us. The best testimony is that Braidie, a “frequent flyer” at Crescent Falls Vet Hospital, used to be afraid at other clinics, but now she waltzes confidently through the door to be greeted by the friendly, relaxed, efficient Staff."
    Braidie, Chris & Ann H. Vernon, BC
