Jade Bencharsky

Animal Care Assistant

I was born and raised in Boyle, Alberta and moved to St. Albert in my first year of high school. I got my first job at a doggie daycare in that first year of high school and have wanted to have a career in animal care ever since. It has been a passion of mine to work with animals but working in an industry that keeps them happy and healthy is a rewarding and suitable job for me. I graduated from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology as a Veterinary Medical Assistant in May 2019. I find all aspects of veterinary medicine interesting but my favourite part is being able to comfort and snuggle all the pets that come in for treatment. My favourite part about working here would be working alongside such a helpful and kind team here and being able to work with pets every day.

A fun fact about me is that I love finding things to do around the city with my friends and family (dogs included!). I also have attended Master Groom Canada in Calgary as a bather/brusher for the past two years and plan to continue attending.
