Karyn Lidbetter

Karyn, born and raised in Fort Erie, graduated with Honours from the Legal Secretarial programme at Mohawk College, in Hamilton and spent almost 30 years in the legal profession as secretary/bookkeeper. A major career move led her to Borderview Veterinary Hospital, where she holds a position of Veterinary Assistant/Housekeeping. Continuous on-the-job learning experiences, the seminars provided by the Niagara Peninsula Continuing Education forum, as well as the kind and patient guidance of the veterinarians and other hospital co-workers, has helped Karyn adapt to this new career placement. Karyn has been married to Jim, for 36 years and they have 2 children, Ryan and Kadie. They also share their home with Maggie, a 4-1/2 year-old German Shepherd/Lab cross and provide doggie-daycare to Molly, a 6 year-old Whippet/Lab mix. Bailey, who passed on last year, lived to a ripe old age of 17!
