She has spent the last three years practicing mostly small animal general practice and emergency medicine in the Hamilton and Haldimand regions.
If you can’t find Dr. Marissa at GVS, then she is most likely spending time at the emergency veterinary clinic in downtown Hamilton looking after pets that need care out of regular clinic hours. She has a special interest in ultrasound/diagnostic imaging, cytology (especially with dermatology cases), and is hoping to pursue further experience with emergency surgical procedures in the coming year.
Dr. Marissa lives just outside of Caledonia with her husband, Kaleb; their two daughters, Rayna and Naomi; two dogs, Ruby and Floyd; their cat, Finnigan; and their newest addition, a Muscovy duck named Robot Mobile J. In her spare time, Dr. Marissa loves to spend time with her family, as well as to play indoor volleyball in the winter and softball in the summer.
She is looking forward to growing alongside the team at GVS as we continue to strive to provide the top level of care for our patients and clients!
