Andrea Muhlbach, Facility Administrator

Joined our team in 2011

Born and raised in Switzerland, Andrea discovered she was a Canadian at heart while on a family vacation in 1996 to the western provinces of Canada. After successfully completing 3 years of farm school in the old country, she had the opportunity to work for a dairy in Innisfail. During that time she met her husband-to-be and made the move to Stettler. Then, working for a big dairy on the outskirts of town for almost 9 years, a change of pace was needed and she got a job at Stettler Vet Clinic. She has been part of the team since 2011. Her and her husband welcomed a beautiful baby girl in 2013. She returned to work in August 2014 and is ready to lend a hand to everyone at SVC. Her interests outside of work are family, horses- continuously improving her Horsemanship skills, and acting for the Heartland Arts Troupe Society!

She was born and raised on an acreage south of Stettler where she grew up chasing cows on her grandparent's farm 5 minutes down the road.  Being part of a big rodeo family means training horses with her dad and brothers.
