Dr. Chamberland was drawn to biology from an early age, but wasn’t sure if her patients would have two or four legs. In her last year at Laurentian University, her dog Jessie was struck by an out-of-control car while Dr. Chamberland was holding her leash. Fortunately, Jessie survived. The attending veterinarian allowed her to observe Jessie’s treatment, and Dr. Chamberland found her calling.
After completing her studies at the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, Dr. Chamberland returned home to Sudbury to practice veterinary medicine. Dr. Chamberland finds great satisfaction in performing non-invasive diagnostic techniques to find answers for ailments that might otherwise go undiagnosed. She completed specialized training in ultrasonography in 2008.
Dr. Chamberland shares her home with her husband and two daughters. She enjoys camping and exploring Ontario’s beautiful provincial parks. A long-time Ukrainian dance instructor, she and her daughter can usually be spotted at many of Sudbury’s festivals. Her furry family is comprised of a Jack Russell Terrier named Jenn who came into their home as a foster pet while recovering from a broken leg. She won their hearts quickly and has been a permanent member of the family ever since. Jenn’s best friend is a grey tabby named Tigger who is very affectionate but will definitely let you know when his food bowl is empty.
