Dr. Dawn grew up in a military family, moving around Canada and Europe. From a young age she knew she wanted to be a veterinarian. She completed her undergraduate degree in Marine Biology at Dalhousie University in Halifax. She then pursued her veterinary degree at the University of Prince Edward Island, graduating in 2012. Following graduation, Dawn completed a Small Animal Rotating Internship at Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in Massachusetts. Since this time she has spent time working both as a general practitioner, as well as an emergency veterinarian. She has a true passion for emergency medicine, and this has brought her to Pulse Veterinary Specialists and Emergency. Dawn has a particular interest in toxicities of any kind!
In her spare time, Dawn enjoys anything outdoors and loves competing in running races and triathlons. In her down time, she loves to spend time with her two adorable cats, Maddie and Bonnie and handsome Golden Retriever, Tom.
