Alysha Richard, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician

I graduated from NAIT’s Animal Health Technology Program in 2022. Prior to my education at NAIT I had attended the University of Alberta for a few years towards a psychology degree, however, I quickly decided that path wasn’t for me. I’ve always known I was destined to work with animals, and have found my passion in becoming an RVT.
I chose to work in the veterinary field because working with animals brings me immense joy. Keeping our clients’ animals healthy and happy is very important to me.Many aspects of veterinary medicine interest me, but currently, I am most interested in animal behaviour. My favourite part about working at Mission Ridge is the amazing team I’m blessed work work along side, and of course all the cuddles from the animals that come in!
An interesting fact about me is that my sister, both parents and myself are all born on the 21st of a different month! And I am the only left-handed person on both sides of my family.
