Hi, I’m Hoyee and I’m one of the junior media coordinators at All4Paws. I moved to Edinburgh from Hong Kong in 2020 and I love living in Scotland! I’m incredibly excited to join All4Paws as it’s a valuable opportunity to gain clinical experience yet give back to the community at the same time. I believe animals shouldn’t be denied medical care simply due to their owner’s financial difficulties or unfortunate circumstances. I’m looking forward to spreading the word about the amazing work All4Paws does, learning from other members of the team, and helping clients and their pets! Outside of vet school, I like travelling, hiking, exploring the city, cooking, and doing karaoke with friends.

Hello! My name is Aïnoha, I am one of the new junior Media Coordinators at All4Paws. I am French; I lived most of my life in Singapore, where I studied at the International French School. I am currently a third year vet student at the R(D)SVS, and I am very excited to be part of this association: I had similar experiences in the past, notably at the Singapore’s SPCA. I found these extremely valuable both at a professional and personal level. I am looking forward to applying the knowledge of our lectures in a more practical context and using it to care for the pets of more vulnerable people, and give back a bit of the luck I have of being part of such a lovely community :) In my free time, I enjoy running, rock climbing, traveling, reading and meeting up with friends.

Hi everyone! I’m Kimberlee, one of the junior fundraising coordinators for All4Paws. I grew up in Canada and did a bachelor’s degree in animal health before moving to Edinburgh in 2021 for vet school. Edinburgh is an amazing place that is feeling more and more like home, and I can’t wait to utilize my previous experience in animal clinics and shelters to give back to our community. Animals can make such a huge impact on our lives, and I believe everyone deserves to enjoy the companionship and support of a pet, just as their pets deserve to be loved and receive the best care. I look forward to meeting all our lovely clients and their precious fur babies! In my free time. I enjoy hiking with my dog, Cola, and playing musical instruments.

Hi there! My name is Taylor and I am one of the junior clinic coordinators for All4Paws. I was born and raised in California and attended CalPoly, San Luis Obispo where I earned a bachelor's in Animal Science. During my undergraduate time, I was able to take part in a student-run clinic for the homeless community. Ever since moving to Edinburgh in 2021, I was eager to be a part of All4Paws and I am so grateful to continue serving the community and their beloved pets. I am so excited to be a part of this incredible team and look forward to the following years!

Hi! My name is Ailsa and I’m really excited to be one of the junior outreach coordinators for All4Paws this year. I’m from Dundee but started vet school and moved to Edinburgh in 2020. I can’t wait to be involved with All4Paws - it’s such a great organisation which carries out some really important work.  I used to work on the reception at a mixed vet practice so am looking forward to using what I learned there to help on the All4Paws committee. In my spare time I really enjoy spending time with and riding horses, and also exploring with my camera.

Hi! My name is Celest Oon and I am a vet student at the University of Edinburgh. I am one of the new junior fundraising coordinators for the 2022/23! I heard of All4Paws through some of the older students and was really inspired by what the initiative stood for and how it helped give back to those less fortunate in society. I have volunteered in various animal shelters and non-profit organizations back home in Singapore and am very eager to start playing my part in contributing to All4Paws this year. All4Paws provides a valuable opportunity for me to help the homeless to Scotland while simultaneously gaining crucial experience to prepare for the future. Aside from volunteering at All4Paws, I also enjoy reading, watching anime and solving jigsaw puzzles in my spare time. I really look forward to being a part of the committee this year!

Hello! My name is Chloe, and I am one of the senior clinic coordinators at All4Paws. I was born in Toronto, Canada, but grew up in various different cities around the world. During this time, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science from the University of Guelph and spent a lot of time working with veterinary clinics, various animal/wildlife rescues and non-profit organisations. I moved to Edinburgh in 2020 to attend R(D)SVS, and joined the amazing All4Paws committee in 2021. I’m so excited to continue my work with All4Paws by utilising the skills I’ve developed to give back to the Edinburgh community and pets in need. In my free time, I enjoy rock climbing, painting, travelling and backcountry canoeing.

Hi! I'm Vedika, the senior fundraising coordinator at All4Paws. I was born in India but grew up in London before coming to Edinburgh in 2018 to start the vet course. I decided to take a year out of vet school in 2020/21, between Year 2 and 3, to intercalate in Reproductive Biology which was an incredible experience. I’ve since been back at the vet school and have been getting stuck in with All4Paws! It is so rewarding to meet all our clients and patients and to see first-hand how much of a difference we truly make. In my free time, I enjoy exploring Edinburgh, playing netball, and heading to the golf driving range.

I’m super excited to continue my involvement in running the clinic and am very grateful for the opportunity to give back to the wonderful Edinburgh community. As a part of the outreach team I really enjoy getting to know all of our clients (and their amazing pets). When I’m not studying for university or helping out at All4Paws I love to go running, hang out with my friends and play the fiddle.

Hello! My name is Katie and I am the senior media coordinator for All4Paws. I’m a New Yorker with a previous degree in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic in Maine. I moved to Edinburgh in 2020 admist the pandemic for vet school.  In the last 5 years I’ve volunteered in veterinary clinics all over the world from New York spay/neuter clinics to the Cook Islands in a charity clinic.  I believe veterinarians should expand beyond hospitals and barns and apply their skills to improve the well-being of the community. All4Paws gives people—regardless of their circumstances—access to quality veterinary care and I am proud to be part of this organization. I find that meeting clients and playing a part in sharing their stories online is highly rewarding. When I’m not studying, I like travelling, doing crossword puzzles, and sharing meals with friends.
