Katie Smale, RVT
Registered Veterinary Technician
I was born and raised in Saskatoon, I completed the Veterinary Technology course through SIAST in 2009. I've always had a lot of compassion towards animals and knew that I wanted a career devoted to helping pets. I initially started working at Cumberland when I was right out of technician school in 2009. From 2014-2017, I worked in the ICU at the Small Animal Clinic at the WCVM. After a few years there, I needed a change of pace and was welcomed back to the Cumberland team in the fall of 2017. Working with rescue organizations and promoting the adoption of animals in need. My first pet was Kali, an aptly named calico cat. My favourite part of my job is providing care and being an advocate for creatures who need help, but can't tell us. My favourite part about working at Cumberland is the high standard of care that we provide and the awesome staff. A fun fact about me is that I love crafts and DIY projects!
