Kelsey Polishak

Registered Veterinary Technologist

My parents say from a very young age they knew that I would be involved with animals when I grew up. If there was ever a cat, a dog, or even a bird, we had to try to find its original home. If we couldn’t find its home, a new one would be found for it. My grandparent’s farm was a place that I loved to be. I would always tell my grandfather to wake me up early so I could do the farm chores with him. We would collect eggs, feed exotic birds, feed the donkey and miniature horses, and of course play with the dogs and cats. I still remember walking with my grandfather through waist-deep snow to help deliver a calf. Pets have always been a big part of my life. I graduated from tech school in 2015. I shortly after found a special interest in nutrition. I currently have three miniature dachshunds, Charlie, Elly, and Odie.

Desiray Foster-Kemps

I have been working at the Stony Plain Vet Clinic since the beginning of September 2020 and have had many memorable experiences here. I love being able to work with all the furry friends that come in to see us, but I have to say the kittens that come in have a special place in my heart. I currently live just outside of Onoway but grew up in the Stony Plain and Spruce Grove area. At home, I have three wonderful pets, my horse Connor, cat Sammie, and dog Tasha. I have been a lover of animals all my life and am so grateful for the opportunity to be able to work with so many different animals and amazing coworkers every day.

Dustin Erickson

Head of Special Projects

Hi everyone! I’m Dustin and this is my right-hand man Dax! My family moved to Stony Plain from BC in 2004 and have lived locally in Stony ever since. I first started working at SPVC in 2009 while in high school and part-time while completing my BBA at NAIT. Over the years I have performed many different roles continuing to be involved with the clinic in some capacity to this day (even if it just running to Costco to get supplies). Dax joined the SPVC family in 2015, he enjoys going to the clinic for visits and loves socializing with everyone there. I grew up with Blue Heelers most of my life and have always had a soft spot for animals of any kind. In my spare time, I enjoy going for walks with Dax, spending time with friends, skiing, and hiking.
