Grace Janes, RVT

Grace Janes is a graduate of the veterinary technician program at Georgian College.  Her favourite part of the job is knowing she is helping your furry family members stay happy and healthy. She started as a receptionist in a vet hospital and was inspired to learn more and do more by becoming a technician. She has 2 dogs and 2 cats in her family and hopes to add more to the pack in the next year. Her other hobbies include drawing, cooking, hiking, and photography (mostly of her pets).

Aleashia Humphries, Veterinary Assistant/Receptionist

Aleashia came to White Oaks in 2013 to gather hours to apply to Veterinary College. She volunteered every summer and we liked her so much, we asked her to become a team member in September 2017. Aleashia’s love of animals comes from always having a house full of fuzzy feet. Her family enjoys fostering animals that wouldn’t have been given a second chance. These fosters usually have a medical condition that requires constant care. Her current foster Milo has cerebellar hypoplasia. Aleashia enjoys spending time with her friends, playing sports, dancing and volunteering her time, when not helping us. We hope that Aleashia continues with her vet schooling and becomes a future veterinarian here at White Oaks.
