Paula Hilts

Registered Veterinary Technician

I joined the clinic July 4, 2017. I went into the veterinary field because of my love for animals and the challenges of working with them. I graduated from Northern College in 2016. My biggest interests in veterinary medicine are dentistry and emergency medicine.
