Christine Carswell

Animal Health Technician

After graduating from Olds College with both a Veterinary Medical Receptionist certificate and an Animal Health Technologist diploma, I began working at Highview Animal Clinic in 2015. My favorite part of my job is the challenge of the work–every day is different and animals are always involved!

I grew up on a farm just west of High River, and have always loved animals. My husband and I now share our home with a dog and three cats.

Animal Health Technician

I graduated from Olds College, Animal Health Technologist program in 1985. I have spent 20+ years working emergency and am now semi-retired working in our mixed practice.

I was born and raised in Calgary. I got married in 1991 and have 2 creative children, daughter studying pre-vet medicine at the U of C and son working on media/computer sciences.

We currently live on an acreage south of Calgary with two dogs, two cats and two horses. Outside of family, work, 4-H, polo-cross, and gardening I am enjoying a new endeavor on conditioning myself and my horse for endurance trail.

I was born and raised on a mixed farm near Champion AB and discovered my love for animals at a very young age. I earned my diploma in Animal Health Technology from Lakeland College in Vermilion AB and started working at Highview Animal Clinic June of 2017.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time on my family farm with my husband and various animals.

Laci Price

Animal Health Technician

I was born in Calgary and my family moved around southern Alberta a few times as a young child. We then settled down in High River where I grew up on my family’s ranch.

I started to work at Highview Animal Clinic as a tech assistant in 2008 for a year before I went to Olds College to take the Animal Health Tech Program, graduating in 2011. I returned after a practicum at Moore Equine to work here in the fall of 2011.

I am married to a wonderful man named Mathew, and we welcomed our first baby August 2015–a beautiful baby girl named Winrey. I enjoy riding horses in my spare time, throughout my life showing different horses for my family in reining competitions. I also enjoy physical activity like weight lifting and getting outside on a nice day. I have a border collie who loves to play catch and has been a joy to train.

I graduated with distinction from Olds College, completing both the Veterinary Medical Receptionist and Animal Health Technology programs. I really enjoy the “people” part of my job and helping you and your pet feel comfortable and safe during your visit with us.

When I’m not at the clinic, I enjoy spending my free time with my horses and two dogs–Jack, a Hangin’ Tree Cowdog, and Gracie, a toy poodle.

Office Manager

I grew up in BC and moved to Alberta in 2007. I met Krista in 2010, we got married and now have two boys. We are part owners of Highview Animal Clinic, and although I work mainly from home you will see me at the clinic as much as I can.

In my off time I enjoy camping, hunting, hiking, shooting and strength sports. Daily walks with the boys are always interesting and our vacations are usually taking my sons to see family.

I was born in Alberta, but moved numerous times while growing up to many different provinces, ending up back home in Alberta where I stayed home for 10 years with the support of my husband to raise our three amazing boys.

Once our kids got older, I enrolled at Bow Valley College where I received my Veterinary Office Assistant Certificate. I started working at Highview Animal Clinic in October of 2013.

In my spare time I like to read, spend time with my husband and kids, and go for walks with our Maltese Jake.
