    Office Manager
    Catherine grew up in North Saanich and has had a strong love of animals her entire life. Having had almost every type of pet under the sun at one point or another, it was no surprise to her parents when she started working in a veterinary hospital, while still in high school. Catherine graduated from UVic in 2007 with a BSc in Biology and Environmental Sciences and joined the team at Royal Oak Pet Clinic in 2017. When she’s not working, Catherine spends her time outdoors, enjoying our beautiful island, or volunteering with animal rescue organizations, both locally and internationally. She enjoys traveling and photography, and in the summer months Catherine can often be found on the beach volleyball court.  At home she is ruled by two cats of her own, a special needs forever-foster cat, and any other species of foster pet that needs a temporary home.

    Lead Receptionist
    Teka spent a good portion of her early years working with children and youth, but made the shift to veterinary medicine, when she joined our team in 2005. Her love of animals blossomed when she was very young thanks to a cat named Sambo and a dog named Gandalf. Teka has had several different pets over the years, including: hamsters, guinea pigs, turtles, mice, fish, cats and dogs. She is currently managed by two cats, Random Pancakes & Pilsbury Doughboy, and loved by Alistar, her Schnauzer mix. In her spare time, Teka can usually be found at a nearby Tim Hortons reading or visiting with friends.
