Nicole Gigian

Director of Operations

Nicole grew up loving all animals but had a special passion for horses. Following her passion, she received her diploma in the Animal Health Technology program in 2008. As a new RVT, she worked in a variety of different areas in the veterinary industry including small animal, equine, emergency care, and bovine embryo transfer. Working in these different areas allowed her to gain vast knowledge and experience.  
She was hired by Dand Veterinary Clinics as an RVT and helped Dr. Dand build Springbank Pet Hospital from the ground up. Over the years she has helped with the opening of several other Dand clinics including a few on Vancouver Island and soon realized her passion for the business side of veterinary clinics.  
Nicole is our Director of Operations for our three clinics in Calgary, one in Airdrie, and two in Victoria, and is enjoying every moment of it. Nicole plays a vital role in helping us embrace our diversity as individuals and is grateful for the unique experiences that help us all work together as a team. With her help, we remain committed to our endeavor to do all we can to help our teams practice gold standard medicine and be a trusted cornerstone in our community!
