Marika Wagner grew up in Calgary and from a very young age she dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. On her journey to reach that goal she studied at the University of Alberta in the Animal Sciences program before she was accepted into the University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine from which she graduated in 2017. Marika feels that the most valuable and enjoyable part of her education was spending her final year of veterinary school completing her practical requirements at veterinary clinics all over Alberta, and even as far as Tanzania and the Northwest Territories. 

Following graduation, she spent a year in beautiful Prince Edward Island completing a small animal rotating internship at the Atlantic Veterinary College and hospital. There she gained valuable exposure to small animal emergency, surgery, internal medicine, and other various specialties. After an enjoyable year on the East Coast, Marika was excited to return to Alberta and become part of the Tri-Municipal community. 

Marika enjoys all aspects of veterinary practice that she has encountered so far, but has a particular interest in small animal anesthesia & surgery and large animal herd health & surgery. In her free time Marika enjoys hiking, camping, playing soccer, Highland dancing, and learning to play the guitar.
