Compassionate Animal Care in St. Catharines
Meet Our Team
Dr. Rachel Monjos
Dr. Rachel Manjos was born in Hamilton, ON and raised in the town of Lincoln. Her love of nature, wildlife and pets led to her decision to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Prior to veterinary school, she spent summers at The Owl Foundation in Vineland learning the care and treatment of various owl species.
After completing a Bachelor of Science in biological sciences at the University of Guelph, she graduated with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2017. Since graduation, Dr. Rachel has developed special interests in the fields of ophthalmology, soft tissue surgery and the treatment of some exotic animal species. She enjoys providing quality care to pets and forming lasting bonds with their owners.
Outside of practice, Dr. Rachel enjoys going to the gym, watching movies and taking care of many plants. She shares her home with two cats and two rabbits, who weigh around 2 pounds each!
Andrea graduated from St Clair College of Applied Arts and Technology in 2008 as a Registered Veterinary Technician. Meeting and working with Dr. Ness at a mixed animal clinic, she was asked to make the leap and come to Glenridge Animal Hospital when Dr. Ness purchased it in 2010. Andrea quickly became a valued member of the family. After taking a brief detour to explore other options, Andrea has returned home where she belongs!
Andrea has a great interest in Canine Behaviour and Communication and has taken courses to further her knowledge in this field. In addition, she has Business and Accounting courses under her belt.
Yoga, meditation, and hiking fill a lot of Andrea’s spare time. Along with time with family and friends and her furry kids – Gus and Turbo.
Rachel is a 2021 Veterinary Technician graduate from Sheridan College. She wrote her Veterinary Technician National Exam in Sept 2021 and is now a Registered Veterinary Technician! Before pursuing her career and landing a spot in the Glenridge family, Rachel worked at other local clinics and various other jobs.
In her spare time, Rachel enjoys listening to music, gardening, exercising, and spending time with her friends and family and her fur kids, which include multiple cats, a dog named Rufus, and some fish!
