Lynn Birrell

Reception

My name is Lynn Birrell and reception is where you will see me. I got into the Veterinary field many years ago to pursue a lifelong passion. What interests me most in the Veterinary field is the variety of animals, cases and stories. My favourite thing about Mission Ridge Animal Hospital is meeting all the animals and the clientele, they make me smile every day. I joined in 2018 and love how welcoming and caring it is here, it makes loving my job easy.

A fun fact about me is that my first pet was a Cocker Spaniel named Moochie, named for his table manners. I also once washed a pair of little boys blue jeans that had a pocket full of garter snakes. They survived and happy to say I did as well.
