About Your Speaker
Madeline O’Leary
Registered Veterinary Technician

Maddie O'Leary developed a passion for veterinary medicine when she began volunteering for the Toronto Wildlife Centre in 2015. After working seasonally in the wildlife rehabilitation and nursery, she pursued a career as a Registered Veterinary Technician.

There she was able to care for a wide variety of animals and continued to learn about our feathered, furry and scaly friends.
