Meet Our Team

  • Kristin Caldwell
    RVT and Chief of Veterinary Operations

    Kristin wanted to become a veterinary technologist after caring for her own dog as a child.  She spent many summers on a family farm and knew that she wanted to continue to care for animals as a career. 

    Her goal with every patient visit is to share her knowledge with the pet or livestock owner. Our jobs are filled with a wealth of information and she enjoys teaching it to new staff, students and clients. 

    Kristin shares her life with her husband and four children. They keep busy on their ranch of commercial and purebred Charolais cattle. They have three dogs Jess, Jed and Dibbles and three cats George, Pumpkin and Crush. 

    Kristin lives and works by the philosophy You need to make time for the important things in life.

  • Sarah Betnar
    RVT and Practice Manager

    Sarah was raised on a commercial beef farm just outside of Estevan, where her extensive animal experience began. 

    In 2008 she made the move out to Alberta where she received her diploma in Animal Health Technology from Olds College. She then practiced in rural Alberta for 4 years as a RVT before coming back to her roots in 2014. Sarah joined Prairie Animal Health Centre that fall and has made this her home with her husband, Daniel, and their cockapoo Ted!

    Sarah is the happiest when she can be outside in the sunshine and is often found paddleboarding the Souris with Ted leading the way.

  • Melissa England
    RVT

    Melissa became a vet tech for the love of animals and the variety of species that she would learn about. 

    Her goal is to provide high quality patient care as well as ensuring as much of a positive experience as possible for each patient. 

    Melissa, her husband Scott and their three children Travis, Owen, Isabelle live on a farm which allows them to have a dog, many cats, rabbits and a hedgehog.

  • Courtney Walter
    Bsc, RVT

    Courtney grew up on a farm north of Calgary where they raised meat turkeys and had a small herd of 40 cows, which is where her passion for animals began! She went to the University of Saskatchewan and completed a Bachelor's of Agriculture with a major in Animal Science and then attended Olds College for her RVT diploma. 

    Courtney now lives on a mixed farm (700 cows and 13000 acres of grain) east of Lampman with her husband, Allan. They spend most of their time farming but when they do get to enjoy time away they love taking Pepper (their border collie x heeler) and going camping, spending time outside as well as hunting and fishing.

  • Shaunacee McKay
    RVT

    Shauncee grew up in Estevan and always had a childhood dream of wanting to save all the animals. Her goal with each patient’s visit is to give her undivided attention and provide the best quality care. 

    Currently, she lives here in Estevan with her boyfriend Carson and their dog “Roo”. 

    Shaunacee has many mantras to live by but some of her favorites are”

    “Visualize your highest self, then start showing up as her” 

    “Strong back, humble heart” 

    “Don’t puff up, don’t shrink down, show up and let yourself be seen”.
