Terra

Client Relations Manager

When Terra started looking for a career change, she knew she wanted something that promoted a positive, family-oriented environment. Since she had always worked closely with other people, she also knew that a career that involved helping others would be ideal. Here at Firth Veterinary Hospital, she gets both of those perks, plus an added bonus: the satisfaction of caring for the Pets and owners of the London area!

Terra was born here in London, but grew up in the small nearby town of Dutton, Ontario. She worked in various fields before deciding to make a change—when she saw an advertisement in the newspaper for a position in a veterinary hospital, Terra knew it was the perfect fit! She became a member of the Firth Veterinary Hospital family in October of 2007 and couldn’t be happier. Terra especially enjoys welcoming New Clients & Patients to the hospital, and getting to know owners’ beloved Pet companions. She also enjoys setting up canine obedience classes for Dr. Firth!

Terra currently lives in St. Thomas with her husband Jeff and their young daughter Paige. When she isn’t spending quality time with her family and friends or tending to the needs of London’s Pets here at the hospital, Terra loves to enjoy the great outdoors including visits to the beach. She also enjoys being an active part of the London Down Syndrome Association Family.

Megan

Client Relations Team & Medical Assistant

Megan has been interested in animal care for as long as she can remember. In high school, she had the opportunity to complete her co-op career placement at a local veterinary hospital; Megan knew right away that it was just the thing for her! Now, she gets to better the lives of pets and their owners every day as part of the Client Relations &Medical Team here at Firth Veterinary Hospital.

Megan grew up in Port Robinson, a small town in the Niagara region. After completing her co-op placement during high school, she studied veterinary technology at Georgian College before signing on at a clinic in St. Catherines. Five years later, she moved to Toronto to work in an Emergency Facility, where she was cross-trained as a Veterinary Technician. After a stint in a Niagara Pet Clinic, Megan moved to the London area in the summer of 2015 and joined the Firth Veterinary Hospital team shortly afterward.

In her time away from FVH, Megan enjoys live music, attending sporting events, and spending time with her cat. Bruce Wayne is a domestic longhaired cat that Megan has owned since he was only three weeks old—he was raised around dogs and likes to think that he is part canine!

Darla

Darla worked various jobs before entering the pet care field, but never felt completely satisfied in any of them. She had always dreamed of working with animals, and finally decided to take a leap of faith. She’s absolutely thrilled to be Grooming Cats an Dogs Professionally as a member of the Firth Veterinary Hospital family!

Darla grew up on a farm in Aylmer, Ontario, where her passion for animal care was first ignited.
