Phil was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Son of an equine veterinarian, Phil followed in his father’s footsteps and graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2007. He worked for a year in a mixed animal practice in Kemptville, Ontario before coming to Chilliwack with his wife, Chantal, so she could finish her training as a family physician.
They fell in love with the community, scenery and bountiful options of year-round outdoor activities, and lost any desire to move back east. Phil is enthusiastic about working with all types of farm animals from large dairy herds to performance horses to backyard goats and pigs. He served on the Board of Directors for the Western Canadian Association of Bovine Practitioners for three years, and has sat on the Advisory Committee on Certified Technicians for the College of Veterinarians of BC.
The Chris family grew in 2010 with Aveline, and in 2013 with Oliver, and are excited to continue to be involved in this great community.
