Meet the Team

The Lady Hammond Animal Hospital vet clinic staff bring an exceptionally caring approach to the care of your pet.

Here is what one client had to say:

“This is a very clean and inviting clinic with great doctors and staff. They are very informed and show genuine care for their patients. I’ve been to other clinics but this is where we will always come now. Unfortunately our cat’s time to pass came far to early for us and our kids. They handled this in a very graceful manner. We’d like to thank everyone at this clinic for the level of care and compassion they provided for those five days. It won’t be forgotten.”

    Kimberly Armsworthy
    Receptionist / Veterinary Assistant

    I was born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, I currently reside in Bridgewater with my wonderful partner Alex, my 4y old Rottweiler Reign and my kittens Atticus and Anubis.  I Graduated from Eastern College in 2017; I did my placement right here at LHAH and worked here for 2 years. I then left to follow my second passion; Baking, after a few years I realised something was missing, my passion and love for animals was pulling me back and I found myself right back here at LHAH, 5 years in this field has taught me there is no better reward then helping a sick pet, and be able to form a bond with each and every patient that walks through the door.  I couldn’t be happier with my decision to come back. But I still spend my free time baking for my amazing co workers

    Support Staff

    I am a 5th year science student at Dalhousie University studying marine fossils after moving to Halifax from Ontario. I have been around animals my whole life including owning dogs, hatching and raising ducks, keeping fish, and now my two lovely rescue cats Tosey and Misfit. I am a big lover of the ocean, and spend most of my free time snorkeling, scuba diving, and searching for fossils. I had spent time volunteering at vet clinics in Ontario, and after taking many biology courses at Dalhousie I decided that working in the veterinary field would be a great link between my interests and my education. I love being able to help animals in need, and am always learning new things thanks to the great team I work with at LHAH.
