OUR STAFF

 

Hope Harvey

Veterinary Assistant

Hi, my name is Hope, I am a veterinary assistant here at the hospital. I grew up in a small country town, working in animal care fields starting from a young age. I am always surrounded by wildlife, living within a forest, and grew up with Rottweilers and fish in our family home; love for animals has never been hard for me. I always wanted to incorporate animals within my adult life as well, and to continue my growth and knowledge by providing the best quality care to all animals in any way I can. In the open spots of my busy schedule, I paint animals and landscapes for my online gallery, pursuing more creative endeavours.

 

Heather Mak

Veterinary Assistant

Hey, I'm Heather AKA Mack! I graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a Bachelors in Health Sciences. I remember begging my parents for a dog and finally getting our adopted Golden Retriever, Bau. He was later joined by our cat, Luna. I found her on Kijiji and she was free to a good home, so naturally I surprised my parents with a new family member. I admit that I was strictly a dog person until I spent more time with cats... now I love both. I can't wait to meet you and your fur baby and see the amazing bond you two have!

 

 

Ellyn Parsalidis 

Veterinary Assistant

Hi! I’m Ellyn! I’m a graduate from St. Lawrence College. I’ve lived in Stouffville for about 5 years and have been a veterinary assistant at the clinic since April 2021. Since I was a kid I’ve been in love with animals and I will admit I was a dog lover at first but I am beginning to have a soft spot for both dogs and cats.

I so enjoy being a part of environment that focuses on the care of animals and their owners. I have many family members with dogs and have always treated them like I would my own. I’m still in the process of begging my parents to let me get one, and it’s been about 16 years but I think I’m wearing them down. I can’t wait to meet you and your furry little family members and can’t wait to include you in the Vista Park Family!

 

Ally Pentz

Veterinary Assistant

Hey, my name is Ally! I work as a veterinary assistant here at VPAH, I'm also a 4th year student studying at the University of Toronto. For my entire life, I've grown up around animals, many being my own pets, including dogs, cats, guinea pigs, a bird, rats, fish, and a hermit crab! I also volunteer at a farmed animal sanctuary and have previously worked there as an on-site caregiver. I've always wanted to work in a veterinary clinic where I have the opportunity to build on my experience giving back to animals. Being a pet owner, I understand how special our fur babies are and the importance of giving them the best care possible.
