For as long as she can remember, Raya has had a great love for animals. Every lost dog would be brought home, where it would be kept safe until the owner could be found. Any cat awaiting attention on a sidewalk received an ample amount of affection. So, it comes as no surprise that she has been working in the veterinary field since 2008!

Raya loves the outdoors and spends much of her time in Vancouver Island’s beautiful wilderness; camping, hiking and fishing with her husband Scott and son William. Raya and Scott plan on purchasing property where they can eventually house a variety of animals, big and small. They currently live-in town with a dog and two cats.
