Alan emigrated to Canada from England with his family and officially became a Canadian citizen when he was 12 years old. As a child, he had an avid interest in animals (frogs, toads, snakes, etc.) but especially cats, first adopting a cat that “followed him home” from the Stratford Farmer’s Market. Later on, the family adopted a Manx kitten, the care of which Alan took complete responsibility… except for the Vet bills.
Though animal care was not Alan’s first career choice, it was always on his mind, which was evident by his fostering of many felines while living in Northern B.C. during the eighties. Returning to Ontario and getting married, Alan was able to return to school in 1992 with the support of his wife and segue from restaurant management into his current career.
In addition to assisting Dr. Lofsky at Wilmot Veterinary Clinic, Alan enjoys spending time at home with his wife Bette and their three children. He enjoys reading biographies, listening to Rock music from the sixties & seventies, and cheering on Les Habitants. Alan is very passionate about volunteering as part of the Tech Crew at Creekside Church in Waterloo.
In November of 2013, Alan celebrated twenty years as a Veterinary Assistant.
