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!

Hannah Jackson, VMR,
Currently in school for RVT
Joined our team in September 2021
Hannah is going to school! Starting in the fall of 2022 she will continue her education in becoming a awesome RVT.
She was born and raised on a farm north of Castor, and from a very young age she knew she wanted to work with animals. She was a part of the local 4-H beef club for five years but only had heifer calves so she could start building a herd of her own. Besides that she competitively ski raced with Alberta Alpine for 8 years and completed her Level1 Ski Instructor’s course. Graduating with honors from Lakeland College’s Veterinary Medical Assistant program in 2021 she started working at the Stettler Vet Clinic the following fall. She has always been a hard worker but in her down time you can find her at the ski hill just down the road from the farm or snuggling with her beloved cat Lucky, that she found as a kitten abandoned in the barn. She also enjoys listening to true-crime podcasts.
