Carmel is our vet assistant and has been working with us since late 2018. She has been working with animals since 2010 and has a love for all of them, big and small.

She has recently moved from Calgary and is still adjusting to the cold but loves to spend time outdoors, as well as cross stitching and baking. Carmel one day hopes to have her own herd of goats to call her own.
