Cori Lepine, CVPM, RVT
Cori is the administrator of the clinic, a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager, a graduate from the Veterinary Hospital Managers Program and a Registered Veterinary Technologist (RVT).
Cori is our newest RVT, but most senior employee. Cori began at the clinic as a volunteer in 1988 and has since become our manager. In 2006 she graduated as a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager (CVPM). This is a fairly exclusive designation with only a handful of members in Alberta. In 2015, Cori decided to go back to school to become an licensed RVT. She graduated from the Olds College Animal Health Technology online program in 2018. Cori also received a student award from the Alberta Veterinary Technologist Association (ABVTA) for her academic standing, skill, and professionalism that represent the veterinary profession well.
She manages to keep all of her employees happy in what has become more like a family through the years.
