Jessica O’Neill

Alma Mater: Seneca College

First job as an RVT: Dual ER and regular practice Willowdale Animal Hospital

Favourite OAVT Conference memory: The first conference I attended post graduation. To see different generations of RVTs coming together, sharing stories, learning from one another, and hearing the overall love of our profession. It was a marvelous experience.

Best career advice someone gave you: “Never stop pushing forward, you were meant to be an RVT.” – Tanis

Goals for the RVT profession: To see a defined scope of practice specific to trained and registered technicians and technologists. To advocate for animal care, and welfare, be recognized as an integral part of the veterinary industry, and for RVTs to be compensated for the work we do.
