Ashley Ryder, Veterinary Assistant

​Ashley joined the Heartland team in November 2022. She moved to Alberta in April of 2022 from Ontario where she was raised. She first started her medical career as a Paramedic where she soon developed a curiosity and interest for Veterinary Medicine. She has plans to study Animal Health Technology and become a certified Vet Tech in the coming years. Her favourite part of Veterinary Medicine is running lab work and dermatology.
At home she has two cats in which she loves dearly. Beef, her eldest girl was adopted from APARC in April and their connection was the works of love at first sight. Her youngest Earl Grey is the newest member to her family. She rescued him in January 2023, and he brings constant joy and goofiness to her life.
In her free time you can find her snuggled on the couch with a good book, tattooing, hiking, playing board games and hanging with her friends and family.
