Larissa was born and raised in the community of Spruce Grove but spent her weekends and summers at her aunt and uncle’s llama farm in Genesee, AB. She always knew from a young age she wanted to have a career working with animals. She graduated with honors from the Veterinary Medical Assistant program at NAIT in 2013 and furthered her education by completing the Veterinary Practice Management program through Olds College in 2017.
She comes to the clinic from a busy small animal referral practice in Edmonton and is excited to come back and work in the community she grew up in. Larissa is very compassionate and committed to providing the best possible care to clients and their furry family members.
Larissa and her husband Stephen share their home with their very spoiled Shih Tzu mixes, Max and Lacey. In her spare time, Larissa enjoys spending time with her family, walks in the river valley, and road trips to the mountains.
Mysha has lived all over Alberta from Lethbridge to Fort McMurray but did most of her growing up in Spruce Grove where she attended WoodHaven Jr. High and Spruce Grove Composite High School. She has always been a lover of animals big and small, and had hopes of working in the animal world one way or another. From being an in house pet sitter to volunteering her time at shelters she was always getting her animal fix somehow without having a dog of her own. She now lives in Spruce Grove with her high school sweet heart James and their two cats, Bobby and Billy.
Mysha takes a special interest in animal behaviour, and is currently working towards a Dog Behavioural Methodology Training certificate. We are very lucky to have her behavioural knowledge at Tri-Municipal Veterinary Clinic!

Brooke was born and raised in St. Albert. Her love for animals started after attending a horse summer camp. From there her animal family grew starting with bunnies, then a dog, birds, horses, cats and just recently a tortoise. One of her main hobbies, aside from snowboarding, quadding and sledding is horse back riding. Over the years she has trained in both English and Western although her passion is Western. She has also been a volunteer for therapeutic riding lessons as well as helped at a ranch doing mountain trail rides.
After graduating high school, it was an easy decision for Brooke to know how she wanted to spend her days, given her love of animals. Brooke is in the process of completing the online Penn Foster Veterinary Technician Associate Degree, while at the same time working to gain first hand practical clinic experience. In the future, Brooke hopes to gain more experience working with large animals.
