Jamie Eckhardt


Client Care Representative

Jamie has a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Studies but she has been working in the veterinary field for almost 10 years.
Here at Carling Animal Hospital, she has the opportunity to work both as a Client Care Representative and as a Veterinary Assistant. In both of these roles she loves that she can establish relationships with both our patients and their owners and is able to help ensure the quality of care they receive at every stage of their visit. Jamie has a special interest in small exotics (which is what first introduced her to Carling Animal Hospital as a client when she came to Ottawa). She appreciates the ability to help provide care for these particular patients and to continuously learn new things about all of our patients (non-exotic included) with each case that comes through our doors.  

Jamie shares her home with a collection of animals – dogs, cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs whom all play a part in keeping her on her toes.   

With Jamie’s full household her life certainly revolves around animals both at work and at home.  When she has the opportunity to do so, she loves spending time outside with her dogs and also enjoys volunteering with different animal rescue groups.
