DR ARMSTRONG IS RETIRING AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER 2017
"It is with mixed emotions that I announce my retirement from Scottsdale Veterinary Hospital after 30 years. I have sold my shares in the practice and as of the end of September 2017; I will no longer be a full time member of the Scottsdale team. I look forward to entering my "semi retirement" as a locum or relief veterinarian for Scottsdale Veterinary Hospital and other well-respected hospitals in British Columbia. I hope to continue a part time career as a veterinarian, ski instructor (now 18 seasons with Whistler/Blackcomb), as well as, continue to serve my profession as a councillor of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association and director of the Society of British Columbia Veterinarians."
Melissa is a familiar face around our hospital; prior to earning her veterinary degree at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, she worked as an assistant at Scottsdale. In fact, she enjoyed the patients and clients so much, she returned as a summer student during her veterinary schooling! Melissa has been working as a veterinarian in White Rock since graduation and is now very excited to return to our hospital. Melissa is looking forward to getting to know all of the wonderful patients and clients here at Scottsdale, and can't wait to be part of our amazing team again!
Melissa has lived in Surrey all of her life, and continues to live here with her two shelties. When she's not at work, Melissa spends her free time doting on said shelties and taking them for hikes around our beautiful province.
