Dr. Kimberley Joyce
Veterinarian, DVM

I am excited to be a member of the MacCormick Veterinary Services team! With a strong love for the human-animal bond, I have a gentle approach to everything I do. I enjoy taking the time to explore every aspect of your companion’s health and healing.

As a 1995 graduate of the Ontario Veterinary College, I have enjoyed practicing veterinary medicine for many years and feel honoured to join the MacCormick team.

I am truly looking forward to meeting you and your furry loved ones!

Dr. Bob Van Delst
Veterinarian, DVM

I am passionate about pets and their people. Having grown up on my family’s farm (in nearby Finch, Ontario), I’ve been surrounded by animals my entire life. Following graduation from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1995, I have had the pleasure of working in veterinary practices in rural, cottage, and urban settings. As a member of the MacCormick Veterinary Services team, I am thrilled to join a community so close to home.

Kathleen
Animal Health Technician

My name is Kathleen and I am the proud owner of 2 golden retrievers who get me out of bed in the morning, a siamese who just stays in bed and 2 kids who have left the zoo to pursue higher studies.

I have worked as a veterinary technician both in research and clinic settings for over 21 years. I have been at MacCormick Veterinary Services since they opened, every day brings a smile to my face. The small group of close friends with whom I spend my day make every day a great one. Dr Brian and his wife Johanna are the most loving, genuine people you will ever meet. ( they didn’t even have to pay me to say that ) I consider my co-workers like family and we share many laughs, in and out of work.

Many of our clients comment that their pets come running through the doors to see Dr Brian & Dr. Tara. They honestly exude kindness and gentleness that the pets pick up.

Come on in and be part of our family.

Lisa
Animal Health Technician

I was raised in the country in Alexandria with lots of pets in the house, like cats, dogs, guinea pigs, rabbits, and birds. I knew from a young age that I wanted to help animals and that they are my passion. Working at MacCormick Veterinary Services has made that dream a reality. I have a cat named Turbo that sleeps next to me every night and a collie named Maya that keeps me active with daily walks.

I graduated from Université de Guelph – Campus d’Alfred as a veterinary technician in 2014 and started working at MacCormick veterinary services in June 2019.

Melissa
Animal Health Technician

My name is Melissa and I was born and raised in New Brunswick. I graduated from Oulton College as a Veterinary Technician in 2014 then worked in Halifax, Nova Scotia for three years before moving to Vankleek Hill in 2017. I have worked in various clinics, gaining experience in exotic animals, intensive care and emergency, and internal medicine. My passion lies with general practice and I was thrilled to join the MacCormick Veterinary Services team in 2020 after three years of working in a large pet hospital in Ottawa.

I have four cats named Abby, Teenie, Seamus, and Toby, as well as a toddler named Myles. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family, playing video games, and reading books.

Elodie
Animal Health Technician

My name is Elodie and I was raised right here in Vankleek Hill! My family and I always knew I would end up in the vet medicine world as I had a special interest in helping out with the family hobby farm. After high school, I graduated from the Algonquin College’s Veterinary Technician Program in the summer of 2021 and obtained my RVT status shortly after. I take pride in working with my team to ensure every patient gets the care they need to live a long and healthy life. In my free time, I love to travel and spend time with my senior pup named Bits.

Caitlin
Animal Health Technician

Hi, I’m Caitlin. I was born and raised in the Ottawa area. I graduated from the Veterinary Technician program at Algonquin College in 2021, passing the national RVT exam a few months later. Upon graduating I began working at a pet hospital in Ottawa. I was very excited to become a part of the MacCormick Veterinary family in 2022. I look forward to work everyday knowing I get to spend it with wonderful humans and amazing furry friends.

My family home always had pets. We have shared many adventures with our dogs, ferrets, budgies and guinea pigs. I’m excited to soon welcome my new Sphynx kitten and miniature Bull Terrier into my home. When I’m not working I love to travel and spend time with friends and family.

Daphne
Administrative Manager

Hello! I’m the Administrative Manager, so I make sure things run smoothly for everyone. I have a previous degree in Geography and Environmental Management from the University of Waterloo, and attended Sheridan College’s Veterinary Technician program. I have worked at several other clinics in the Kitchener-Waterloo area before making my home in Vankleek Hill. In my spare time I like to cuddle my dogs and consume copious amounts of caffeine.

Konstantine
Receptionist

Hello, my name is Konstantine and I love working at Maccormick. Prior to taking on a receptionist role here I have had a very eclectic career. I’ve worked on a dairy farm, in restaurants, in theatre, in shipping and logistics and politics. I love animals and getting to know the local community and their pets. When I’m not at work you can usually find me in my garden, tending my chickens, ducks, and cows, or in my kitchen as growing and preparing food is a definite passion of mine.

My fur family includes a great pyrenees named Stella, and four cats, Oliver, Franklin, Jasper, and Stacey.

Joannie
Receptionist

Hi, my name is Joannie and I was raised on a hobby farm, east of Ottawa. Since as long as I can remember, I have always prioritized animals in my life. After working at an animal shelter for a few years, I decided to expand my knowledge and work experience by obtaining a position in a veterinary clinic. I enjoy helping the community take the best possible care of their 4 legged companions. When I am not working, I am most likely tending to my horses, chickens, cats and my dog, Chief!

Trouble
Clinic Kitty

Clinic kitty extraordinaire. Trouble is often found sleeping on the nice warm front desk printer. Every now and then you may catch her wandering about checking out the exam rooms or the food room! Be sure to stop in and say hello.

The team at MacCormick Veterinary Services would like to thank Dr Brian MacCormick and his wife Johanna for their many years of service to pets and to this community. Brian and Johanna are moving back to Nova Scotia. We wish them the very best in this next chapter of their lives!
