Dr. Hansen grew up in the valley just outside of Canning. She joined the pony club program early on which sparked her interest for all things veterinary- especially HORSES!
Damita took her BSc at St. FX University in Antigonish before heading to the Atlantic Veterinary College on PEI where she graduated in 2017. She then went on to complete a one year internship at Blue Ridge Equine Clinic in Virginia before returning to the valley and Cornwallis Veterinarians as a Large Animal Vet, specializing in equine health. She currently resides in Kentville and has a very handsome warmblood named Joe. She loves to ride her horse and enjoys dressage, eventing or fox hunting. In her spare time, she likes to paint, knit, and cook and she loves to teach so she enjoys having students ride along.
