Dr. Julia Jackson

Dr. Julia Jackson grew up in Ontario and obtained her DVM from the Ontario Veterinary College.  She arrived in Revelstoke in 1998 to serve as the town’s first residing veterinarian. In 2010, after their two children were in school, Julia and her husband purchased what became the Revelstoke Veterinary Clinic. Julia is proud to have transformed the clinic from a part-time satellite practice into a full service 6 days-a-week clinic offering veterinary care of the highest standard.

Revelstoke’s authentic small-town feel, it’s solid, caring community, and the limitless opportunities to mountain climb and ski are what brought Julia to Revelstoke.  She has strived to maintain the small-town values of familiarity, kindness and accessibility-to-all while at the same time delivering uncompromising, top-quality care to all her clients and patients.  She deeply appreciates the long-term clients who have shared and supported the clinic’s development and enjoys welcoming those who are newly arrived to make their lives in our special town.  Julia is honoured by the trust that has been given her as the provider of veterinary care to the community of Revelstoke.

Dr. Jackson has strongly pursued and developed a professional interest in small animal dentistry and sees it as a key element in the lifelong care of companion animals. She has time-and-again seen remarkable improvements in the quality of life of dogs and cats resulting from attending to their dental health.

Julia’s family includes Kindle and Iggy, the current members of a succession of Belgian Shepherds (Tervuren), and horses Markus and Seven.

Dr. Veronika Kulinova

Dr. Veronika Kulinova grew up in a farming community in the mountains of Slovakia, riding horses and caring for the farm’s animals while pursuing her passion for mountain sports. She first visited Canada eight years ago and fell in love with Jasper, where she volunteered at the vet clinic. She returned to Slovakia to undertake veterinary studies and spent summers in Jasper. After obtaining her veterinary degree, she moved to Jasper where she attained her North American Veterinary Accreditation and became a Permanent Resident of Canada. During this time Veronika also worked as a horse outfitting guide, doing extended backcountry trips in the Canadian Rockies.

In school, Veronika was especially interested in horses and wildlife. In practice, she enjoys the variety of working with both with horses and companion animals. She has particular interest in ultrasound, surgery, internal medicine, and equine dentistry.

She continues to aspire to travel and volunteer, with Africa high on her wish list. She loves outdoors sports of all kinds, as well as yoga, baking and friends.

Veronika arrived in Revelstoke days before the onset of the COVID-19 crisis and the drastic changes it brought to the way we live and work. She stepped up to the challenge of this with extraordinary composure and capability, and has been integral to our efforts to adapt and continue providing essential veterinary services and care as we make our way back toward normalcy.

We are very fortunate to have Dr Kulinova on our team. We hope you will join us in welcoming her to Revelstoke, and look forward to the time she is able to meet you face-to-face. In the meantime, you can meet her through a telemedicine link, and you may see her out playing with Skoki, her new border collie puppy.

Dr. Suzanne Tiggelman

Dr. Suzanne Tiggelman grew up in a town near Amsterdam. After completing her veterinary diploma at the University of Utrecht in 2011, she lived in Amsterdam and practiced in different practices in the vicinity of the city.

After 5 years of practicing as a mixed animal veterinarian, working mainly with small animals and horses and the occasional sheep, cow or pig, she decided to put her focus solely on small animals. Working with small animals gives her great satisfaction by being able to do more in-depth diagnostics and surgery.

Dr. Tiggelman has always loved to travel and has done a great deal of it. After visiting B.C. in 2018 for the first time she couldn’t help falling in love with the wonderful forests, beautiful landscapes and kind people. It sparked new flames in a forgotten fire that burned: wanting to move abroad someday. As she and her family immediately fell in love with Revelstoke after visiting in 2018, they returned in 2019. She decided to walk into the clinic to check it out. In the following 2 years she worked on getting registered as a Veterinarian in Canada and later getting her registration in B.C.

In April 2022 her family of 4 and their dog Mr. Burns moved to Revelstoke to start an exciting new adventure working as a vet here in our clinic and living in Revy.

Dr. Tiggelman has a special interest in surgery, ultrasound and loves the day to day contact with clients and especially their furry friends, building a special relationship with her clients. Dr. Tiggelman is a passionate veterinarian and is very excited to join the Revelstoke Veterinary team and to meet all the lovely pets and their wonderful owners here in Revelstoke!
