Dr. Lisa Welland, DVM
Dr Lisa is a local Maritimer, originally from Port Clyde on Nova Scotia's South Shore. Her dream of a career in veterinary medicine began at a very young age, telling anyone who asked that she wanted to be a vet when she grew up.
At the age of 20 after years of hard work and dedication, Dr. Lisa was offered an early acceptance to the Atlantic Veterinary College on Prince Edward Island. After graduation in 2003, she accepted her first associate position at Shaw Pet and Equine Services in Victoria, British Columbia where she continued to practice for nearly a decade.
After spending many years away, Dr. Lisa was anxious to return to her Maritime home, so in the fall of 2012, she packed up and headed East. She decided to settle in the beautiful seaside town of Chester. In July 2015, Dr. Lisa purchased Chester Basin Animal Hospital from long time owner Dr. David Evans.
At work, Dr. Lisa maintains special interests in Veterinary Dentistry and Feline Medicine. In her spare time, she enjoys jogging, golf, curling, travelling and culinary arts.
Dr. Lisa and her husband's fur (and not so furry) family consists of a Siamese cat named Kevin and a Hermann's tortoise named Oswald.
