Kara is one of the newest members to join the Barrydowne family but instantly became a valuable part of our team. She was born and raised in Southern Ontario where she completed her Veterinary Office Administration course from the University of Guelph. She then decided to complete the Veterinary Assistant/Animal Grooming Program at Northern College. She fell in love with Northern Ontario and has been calling Sudbury home since graduating from her program.
Kara grew up surrounded by many different animals. She spent most days with her cats and dogs, but also made time for her hamster friends and even the fish. Caring for her pets was always her first priority. Volunteer work with animals was also a passion for her and she did many co-op placements in veterinary hospitals looking to lend a hand wherever needed. She fostered two cats named Delilah and Quinzie for six months and feel in love with the pair. She adopted both cats and they are now a permanent part of her four legged family.
In her spare time, Kara enjoys spending time outdoors. Living in Norther Ontario, she has been able to enjoy a wide variety of activities. If she is not camping or hiking, you may find her curled up with a good book as she is a bit of a bookworm, or tackling a project with her crafty DIY nature.
