Hello, my name is Carissa and I am from Hong Kong! I’ve lived in Toronto since grade 9 and just graduated from the University of Toronto with a double major in Animal Physiology & Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. I have always been interested in animal welfare and have a passion for helping animals. I have worked as a veterinary assistant in Hong Kong, then joined the Wellesley team as an animal health advocate in November 2018. I am also a wildlife rehabilitation intern at the Toronto Wildlife Centre, providing care to more fluff babies (red foxes, coyotes and tons of pigeons!).
Pets: 2 adorable babies <3 – Bobo (Papillon) & Happy (Border Collie)
Fun Facts: I am a professional blanket burrito that speaks both Cantonese and Mandarin.
