Dr. Robin Goodfellow

Veterinarian

Dr. Robin grew up in Canmore, surrounded by wildlife and family pets (everything from degus to an Irish Wolfhound) and was inspired at a young age to give back to the animals in her life and pursue a career in veterinary medicine.

Staying close to the mountains, she obtained a BSc. in Biology from the University of Calgary, and a DVM from the U of C Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 2021. Robin has worked at BRVC since 2014, starting as an animal care attendant, and is excited to now be working in a position that requires cleaning up less dog feces. As a first-year veterinarian she is still trying to find her niche in the profession but has an interest in diagnostic imaging and all things feline.

In her spare time Robin enjoys a multitude of Canmore activities including hiking, mountain biking, cross-country and downhill skiing, yoga, drinking overly-expensive coffee, and wearing athleisure clothing. When not out and about in the Bow Valley, Robin can be found at home with her two cats, Evelyne and Theodore.
