Dr. Tanya Schimpl grew up in Vernon and originally embarked on a career in Hotel Management. Eventually, her love of animals won out and she attended the Western College of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Schimpl works part-time with us. Her easy-going manner and thoroughness makes her a great asset to our team.
Dr. Kristina Ringness grew up in Rocky Mountain House, Alberta, near Crescent Falls. She attended the University of Alberta and graduated with a Bachelor of Science Specialization degree in Zoology in 1990. It was at this point she set her sights on becoming a Veterinarian, and attended Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, graduating in 1997.
After this, she moved to the North Okanagan and has enjoyed the area since. In 2003, she opened Crescent Falls Veterinary Hospital and a few years later, was able to build the current facility. She enjoys companion animal surgery and medicine and the rewarding feeling of working together with clients for the health of their pets.
Dr. Ringness and her family live on a farm outside Vernon with her various cats and her dog Sulby who comes to the clinic every day.
