Rachel MacQueen, RVT

Registered Veterinarian Technician

I graduated in 2007 from The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton, Alberta. I joined the Mission Ridge Animal Hospital in 2013, and my area of interest is in animal behaviour. My favourite thing about the clinic is the wonderful staff who not only offer great veterinary care but are active in the local community. My first pet was a dog named Duke. What I love most about my job is being able to interact with people and help them understand more effectively, the various needs their pet may have. Being an advocate for the pet and having an opportunity¬†to teach the clients is a very rewarding experience. A fun fact about me is that my nickname growing up was Ellie Mae (from the Beverly HillBillies). I once used horse hair to sew up a laceration on my sister’s pet chicken.
