The Staff of Charwick Hill
Dr. Sharon Charles
Sharon was raised on a cattle farm in Saskatchewan and graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994. It was a natural progression for Sharon to enter a mixed practice but although she liked working with cattle, large animal medicine is hard on the body. In 2005 therefore, she said goodbye to the sleepless nights during calving season and settled in Edmonton dealing with dogs and cats. Sharon's compassion for her patients is clear when you first meet her and the bonus is...they like her too!
Andrea Coughlan R.V.T (Registered Veterinary Technologist)
From a young age, Andrea always knew that she would eventually spend her life looking after animals and when she was 16 she acquired her first Newfoundland dog. After graduating from Fairview College in 1992, she spent 6 years gaining valuable experience working at Edmonton Veterinarians's Emergency Clinic. Like Sharon, Andrea eventually longed for sleep at night and so she left the emergency clinic and joined a regular practice. She enjoys her patients and the relationship she forms with their caregivers and to this day still shares her life with Newfoundland dogs.
The newest member of or team is of course an animal lover. She includes 2 Newfoundland dogs, Mystique, her son Storm and Calypso the sheltie in her family. A long time customer of the clinic Colleen is thrilled to be able to be a part staff and is looking forward to meeting all the customers and most of all the pets.
