Graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1992. Was in private veterinary practice in Eastern Ontario for 19 years. Since the spring of 2011 I have been employed by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, Food Inspection Branch, as the Regional Veterinarian for Eastern Ontario. My duties primarily involve food safety and animal welfare in provincial abattoirs but I also have experience with inspection in sale barns in Ontario and with federal rules regarding humane transport.
