Dr. Heidi Beroll: I grew up in Espanola, ON where my parents owned a small resort on lake Apsey. We had numerous pets including dogs, cats, turtles and fish. I knew at a young age that I wanted to become a veterinarian and that desire strengthened as I gained experience in veterinary medicine.
After finishing my Bachelor of Science degree at Laurentian University, I attended the Ontario VeterinaryCollege for my Master of Science degree in Epidemiology. My Masters project investigatedthe spatial risk distribution of the West Nile Virus disease in birds and humans in southern Ontario. This investigated the possibility of using West Nile Virus infection in birds as an early warning system for humans. During my masters year at Guelph I participated in numerous intramural sports and was a member of the varsity volleyball team.
After finishing my Masters degree I was accepted into the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program at the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, Ontario.
Following graduation, I was excited to return to northern Ontario to start my career in Veterinary Medicine.
Living in northern Ontario hasallowed me to become involved in community sports such as volleyball, hockey and slo-pitch. My other interests include camping, hiking, biking and snowboarding.
