From a young age, she knew she wanted to be a veterinarian and graduated from the University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 2020. Emma enjoys the diversity that comes with working in mixed practice. Her veterinary interests include small animal internal medicine, soft tissue surgery and beef cattle medicine. When she’s not at the clinic, you can find her on the softball diamond, whether she is playing fastball or umpiring.

When she’s not working, Susan enjoys watching her kids play sports, and spending time with her friends and family.

Karla Quantz

Registered Veterinary Technician

Karla grew up just outside of Didsbury on a farm but currently resides right in town. Between time spent at the clinic and time spent managing the cattle operation on the farm- her days end up pretty busy! Her fur family currently includes a very energetic yellow lab- Darby and an equally fiesty gray tail-less cat Gabby! :)
