Meet the friendly staff at Sherwood Veterinary Clinic!
I am married and have three grown sons. I was born and raised in Egypt. Where I witnessed many cats and dogs being neglected, which inspired me to dedicated my life to helping animals. I trained in Egypt and after graduating, I spent ten years in Egypt working had to do my best for all the animals I could help. I moved to Canada in 1994, and enrolled in the University of Prince Edward Island Veterinary School, where I continued to expand my training and skills prior to completing the Canadian Veterinary Board exams. After graduation, I moved with my family to Swift Current, Saskatchewan for one year of work, then to Edmonton where I worked in a few practices around the Edmonton area. In 2015, I decided to fulfill my dream, and opened my own clinic in Sherwood Park. In my free time, I like to travel and spend quality time with my family.
