RAPS is all about the animals. But everything we do is possible because of a team of amazing humans.
This week, meet Sherrie Ayre, manager of the RAPS Animal Hospital!
What does your job involve?
I manage the employees and public relations with clients, if they have any concerns. There are also many other aspects to the job.
When did you start at RAPS?
I have been at RAPS for four years now, since January of 2019.
Share a bit of your history?
I have been in the veterinary industry for over 20 years now, I started working at OWL (Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society) with birds of prey, then moved on to a small animal practice for two years, then was at Canada West Veterinary Specialists for 17 years before moving to RAPS.
What attracts you to this organization?
I really enjoy the fact that we help out those in need. We have the cat sanctuary that is home to a lot of cats that we help as well.
What is your favourite part of the job?
My favorite part of the job is the people I work with. We have a lot of fun, which I think is very important, yet we get our job done.
A bit about yourself?
I grew up in Steveston and now live in North Delta. I have two kids, a boy who is 13, and a girl who is 11. I am constantly busy with being a soccer mom and getting them to their practices and games. I also enjoy walking my dog, named Goose.
We are so lucky to have Sherrie on the RAPS team!
