Pilar grew up in Invermere, British Columbia, with her parents and older brother. She moved to Whistler as a young adult to pursue her love of snowboarding. Still restless, she uprooted and became a seasonal wild land fire fighter and traveled all over British Columbia. With her father acting as a role model veterinarian, Pilar went on to complete her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at the University of Saskatchewan. She has a special touch with all of the feline friends who come through our door. Our resident cat, Celine, can’t seem to get enough of her. Now happily nestled in Squamish, in her spare time, you can find Pilar scaling the rock walls of the Stawamus Chief and playing in the band, Marble Canyon.
