Dr. Chris Schenk
I grew up in the Edmonton area and graduated from Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon in 1992. I practiced in Alberta for nine years and then moved to Vernon in 2001. We love the Okanagan and aim to provide quality, compassionate veterinary care for your four-legged family members.
Louise here. Most of my work is done behind the scenes in the back office. My official title is Office Manager. That is short for helping out everywhere there is a need and dealing with issues related to the business aspect of running the clinic.
Hi! I’m Erica. I have always had a love for animals and after high school I decided to attend Thompson Rivers University and enrol in the Animal Health Technology program. Shortly after graduating, I moved to the Seattle area and worked in a small animal clinic for five years. After moving back to Vernon in 2003, I started working at Sunridge Veterinary Clinic where I love the variety that my job provides. No two days are the same!
Hi! I’m Marcelle. I attended U of A in Edmonton and received a BSc in Zoology, which I found very fascinating and challenging. My interest in animals led me to take Animal Health Technology at NAIT. I started in a small animal clinic in Edmonton and then moved to the sunny Okanagan with my family. I have been working at Sunridge Veterinary Clinic since 2006 and take great pride in looking after your pet and making their stay here as comfortable as possible. I love my job and all the interesting work we do here!
Hi! My name is Caitlin and I started working at Sunridge Veterinary Clinic in 2006 as a Veterinary Office Assistant. I was born and raised in the Okanagan and have always had a passion for animals. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend, our two dogs, Bailey and Turbo, reading and horseback riding. I’m taking the Animal Health Technology program through distance education in January. I’m really excited to continue my education while being able to work and live in Vernon. I’m looking forward to the challenge and I’m eager to learn more in order to better help our clients and their furry family members.
Hi, I'm Alisha! I have known Dr. Schenk and the rest of the Sunridge staff for a few years now. I originally started volunteering just as I was finishing up high school. I just recently graduated from the veterinary hospital assistant program in Kelowna, and I am beyond excited to be back at Sunridge Veterinary Clinic working as part of the team! When I'm not at work I enjoy spending time with my cat Midnight as well as hiking, baking and crocheting! I look forward to getting to know all our clients and their furry four-legged families!
