Sam O'Connell

Receptionist/ Veterinarian Assistant

Sam is originally from Cape Breton and moved to New Brunswick in 1993. She grew up on horseback and searched out a career where she could help others. We had the pleasure to meet her as a placement student while studying the Veterinary Administrative Specialist program at Eastern College. She was such a great fit for the team, we decided to keep her!


Sam is kept busy with her animal-loving son Liam, a 1-year Puddle Pointer named Toque who can be described as goofy and an eccentric 4-year old black cat named Harley. When she does find some “downtime”, she can still be found camping or curled up with a good book.


The greatest job satisfaction comes from helping you to help your pet, and she feels honored to be trusted as a member of the team to keep your furry friend healthy for a long, long time.


When asked if she would be a dog or cat and what breed, Sam said “If I were a cat I would be any breed. I love food, naps and laying in the sunbeams with a good book.”
