Urszula has been drawn to animals ever since she can remember. When an intense interest in biology and science blossomed during her school years, pursuing a career in veterinary medicine seemed a perfect fit. After graduating from the University of Toronto with a degree in Zoology, Urszula obtained her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College in 2011. She has since worked in the GTA and surrounding area. Though she has spent most of her life in Canada, she visits Poland (her country of birth) often, and is fluent in both English and Polish. She shares her life and home with her husband Darren, and their very senior Jack Russell Terrier Soda, Lucy the lovely standard poodle, Sable the cat, and their falconry birds . Having a great love of the outdoors, she spends her free time exploring the local fields and woodlots with the her birds and dogs, hiking, camping, and at the cottage. She also loves reading and playing volleyball.
