Candelario was born and raised in Mexico, and obtained his Veterinary Education at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Automous University of Zacatecas, in January 2010. Candelario started work in his private veterinary mixed practice in Mexico soon after he graduated from veterinary school. From there, Candelario worked as a trainer assistant for Dale Saunders Racing Stable in Edmonton, Canada. He moved to Canada permanently in 2017 and has worked for Energy Equine since then.
Candelario’s plays different roles throughout the clinic. From assisting veterinarians and technicians to maintenance tasks in the clinic. In addition, he is available to participate in any task assigned at any given time and always keeps a friendly attitude among coworkers and clients. In the future, Candelario is hoping to obtain a Canadian veterinary license and become a part of the veterinary team at Energy Equine. He is currently well on his way, obtaining a Supervised Limited License through the ABVMA in 2022 and is currently working through the testing process to obtain his full license in Canada.
Kaitlin Paul graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Health in 2019. Kaitlin came to us with a keen interest in optimizing the health of performance horses as well as an interest in how animal nutrition can be used as a tool to promote overall general health of our equine athletes. She's a successful competitor in both Extreme Cowboy competitions, having won the Extreme Cowboy Association Youth World Championship in 2014 and Reining, where she was the 2017 Canadian Supreme Limited Non Pro Champion. Kaitlin is adaptable and quick to learn, she's become an amazing asset to the veterinary team since she started with us in November of 2020 and we are excited to watch her grow within her position, and beyond. On any given day you can find her assisting any of our veterinarian's, but she spends a majority of her time with Dr. Hewlett and Dr. Smith.
Madison is originally from Sylvan Lake and has a background in rodeo, her family raises bucking horses and she barrel races. Upon graduating from Olds College in 2020 she came to work for Energy Equine. Having been a long-time client, she already knew many of the ins and outs of the clinic, and we were excited to see her continue within the industry with our team. She has a special interest in sports medicine and rehab, and particularly enjoys Energy Equine for the fast pace, ability to work with performance horses and practice sports medicine. She enjoys spending her spare time with all her animals, including her horses, dogs and cat and plans to run CPRA in the future.
