Danica was born in Saskatchewan and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Her family then moved to St Albert, Alberta when she was in junior high school. For as long as she can remember Danica has wanted to be a veterinarian and after completing her undergraduate degree in Animal Health at the University of Alberta, she was accepted to the University of Melbourne’s Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program in 2018. After graduation, Danica decided to return back home and brave the cold winters of Alberta once again!

Danica is enjoying all aspects of veterinary medicine so far but she particularly enjoys the puzzle of small animal internal medicine, both small and large animal surgery, bovine obstetrics, and avian medicine. She even wrote her final year research project on the use of Alfaxalone for sedation and anaesthesia in the domestic pigeon.

In her free time Danica likes baking, reading, hiking, doing puzzles, and spending time with her family, friends and fiancé. She currently has a lovebird named Ivy and is looking forward to adding more furry and feathery companions to her family.
