Lottie was born and raised in Aldworth, England, but moved to Cochrane, Alberta with her family when she was 10. On her family’s acreage NorthWest of Cochrane, she grew up with Flat-Coated Retrievers, chickens, and sheep. She spent weekends and summers working as a technician assistant at a small animal clinic in Cochrane, which reinforced her desire of working in the veterinary field. After finishing high school, she moved to Edmonton to study at the UofA where she graduated in 2015 with an Animal Biology degree (with distinction), and then continued her education at Olds College where she graduated in 2017 from the Animal Health Technology program (with distinction). Lottie has a keen interest in wildlife, ecology, and conservation, and also works part time at a wildlife rehabilitation centre – birds are her favourite patients. In her free time, she enjoys hanging out on the acreage watching the wildlife and exploring the Rockies.
Currently, she shares her house with Bow, a Flat-Coated Retriever; Mac, a German Short Haired Pointer puppy; and Red Rock, Barred Rock, and New Hampshire Red chickens.
