All Dr. Bishop ever wanted was to be a vet. Her first “real” job as a teenager was as a receptionist at a small animal clinic in Burlington. From there she was hooked, fascinated with the variety and excitement in the medicine and science that came from clinical practice. Throughout her high school and university years she worked at a variety of veterinary clinics in the surrounding area, certain this was the field for her.
After completing a degree in Life Sciences from McMaster Dr. Bishop was accepted into the Ontario Veterinary College and graduated in 2005. Immediately after graduation she joined the team at Abbey Animal Hospital.
During each visit she strives to understand what makes each patient special to their family and to nurture that bond. Creating a space and visit that each pet feels safe and comfortable in is of the utmost importance.
Dr. Bishop shares her life with her husband and two cats, Kiara and Luna. When not working she enjoys photography and getting away to the cottage.
