We love to spend our time together at the lake swimming, fishing, quading and skidooing.

Animals play a special role in my life outside of work as well. I am involved with rescue animals, very much enjoy horseback riding and mounted shooting. As well I have many pets, too many to name actually!

I love working at Beausejour Animal Hospital. The team and atmosphere is great, always putting the needs of our patients first.

rkaitlinI started working at the Beausejour Animal Hospital in 2014 after graduation with honors from the Animal Health Technology Program at Red River College. I’m pleased to be at a clinic that practices with both large and small animals, as I love working with animals of all sizes.

At home I have Charlie, the beagle, Turk, the rescue cat, and I occasionally babysit Louie, the Rottweiler.

While in school, I volunteered with the Canadian Animal Blood Bank, and am pleased to be involved in establishing a dog blood donor clinic in Beausejour.

I am very fortunate to be in a field that’s extremely rewarding.

rtaraI graduated from Red River College in 1999 with my AHT Diploma. I then worked the next 10 years at the University of Winnipeg in the Biology Department, setting up and assisting in various biology labs. I then moved, with my family, to England where we lived for 6 years. I did a variety of tasks there including dog walking and painting and decorating.

I was born and raised mostly in Winnipeg but am well-travelled. I spent one year in Japan where I taught English as a second language. I have visited many places in the US and have seen parts of other countries including Mexico, Spain, and Egypt.

My hobbies include gardening, baking, swimming, travelling and crocheting. Now, I am kept busy working full time at Beausejour Animal Hospital and raising two young children.

My children and I foster for the Winnipeg Humane Society. We have two kittens and I’m always looking for more…

I have always loved all animals, of all sizes.

I graduated from the Animal Health Technology program at Red River College with honours in June 2016.

Dr. Chantalle Penner2019-09-09T19:06:30+00:00

“Dr. Chantalle grew up on a cow-calf farm in Elma, MB and she spent her summers growing up working with the cows and working the fields. On the farm there was never a shortage of livestock or pets, albeit cows, horses, pigs, dogs, cats, or rabbits. This is where her life-long passion for livestock, and companion animals developed.

Dr. Chantalle graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Science from the University of Winnipeg in 2015 and graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine with a DVM in the spring of 2019. She was lucky enough to attend the Cornell Summer Dairy Institute, an advanced training program for prospective dairy veterinarians in the summer 2019. She spent an intensive 6-weeks there learning from experts in dairy production medicine from all over the world.

Although, Dr. Chantalle enjoys working with animals both large and small, her favorite part of veterinary medicine is dairy calf health, and transition cow management. Dr. Chantalle had been a student with us at BAH for 3 summers throughout her journey of veterinary college, and started with the clinic as a veterinarian in May 2019.

Outside of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Chantalle enjoys swimming, fishing, archery, camping, and horseback riding.”

I grew up on a mixed farm in Co-Cork, Ireland, where we keep Irish sport horses. In June of 2018 I graduated from the University College of Dublin, and moved to Beausejour the following August.

I have been working at the Lac du Bonnet clinic since it opened in 2002.

We share our home with two dogs, Luna our Bloodhound and Lewie our Dachshund.





Dr. Claus Leppelmann2018-07-30T21:22:37+00:00

I grew up on a farm near Steinbach Manitoba and always enjoyed when the vet came to the farm – I became interested in veterinary medicine because of those visits. I received my DVM from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997. It is an extremely exciting and challenging career; it’s never the same day twice. Our family has a small herd of Dexter cattle, several guinea pigs, 2 rabbits, 1 donkey, 2 dogs, 1 cat, several hermit crabs and various fish.

Our family moved to Beausejour in 2001.  While I enjoy all aspects of mixed animal practice, my area of interest is dairy production and medicine.



Dr. Karen Leppelmann2018-07-30T21:22:57+00:00

My interest in veterinary medicine began when I was eight years old and my dairy 4H leader told me I should consider being a veterinarian.  Growing up on a small farm in Salmon Arm B.C. gave me a chance to become familiar with a wide variety of livestock – we raised cattle, chickens, turkeys, horses, rabbits and pigs, and we always had a yard full of cats, dogs, and other creatures! As I progressed through school, I realized that my love for working with animals blended perfectly with my interest in medicine. In 1997, I  graduated from Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. My career began out in Alberta, first in Barrhead, then in Leduc after marrying my vet school classmate, Claus. We moved to Beausejour in 2001.

The years have flown by, and we now have three boys, all of whom enjoy the adventures created by a life centred around veterinary practice!

Dr. Eric Maguet2018-07-30T21:23:10+00:00

I was born in Ste Rose du Lac and grew up on a mixed farm.

I graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon with my DVM in 2007 and started working for the Beausejour Animal Hospital in May of 2007.



Dr. Carolyn Maguet2018-07-30T21:23:28+00:00

Currently on maternity leave.

I was raised on a mixed farm (beef cattle and grain) in the prairie grain belt near Eston, Saskatchewan. My grandparents lived in the same yard and helped raise my sisters and me. My grandfather made sure we always had plenty of western pleasure horses to ride and took us to horse shows and trail rides when I was young. Of course, there were always plenty of barn cats, and through the year, a wide assortment of dogs on the farm as well! I think my love of animals was fostered from a very young age and probably heavily influenced by my Grandpa Cal.


I graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon in 2005 and have been working steady ever since. I started out at a busy mixed practice in Sundre, Alberta for my first 2 years. I enjoyed being in “cattle country” with a view of the Rockies. However, a certain guy in my life eventually drew me towards Manitoba. Eric and I both started working in Beausejour, MB in the spring of 2007 and are happy to call it “home” now. We got married here in 2009 and have definitely put down some roots!


Dr. Kurtis Swirsky2018-07-30T21:24:34+00:00

I grew up on a mixed farm near Winnipeg Beach and I am still involved with this farm today. I took my pre-veterinary courses at the University of Manitoba and graduated in 2010 from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.

I have always enjoyed being outdoors and around animals. As long as I can remember, I have wanted to be in the agriculture profession. I decided to become a mixed animal Veterinarian in my first year of University.

I enjoy spending time with my wife Amanda, training my dog Scout, curling in the winter and helping family on the farm.

Dr. Stephen Atkinson2017-04-27T15:35:35+00:00

rstephenOriginally from England, Stephen came to Canada to train as a wildlife biologist. After many years studying polar bears and other arctic species, he went back to school to become a vet.

He works mostly with small animals including all manner of exotic species such as snakes, lizards, and birds. Occasionally he does equine and large animal work.

Dr. Stephen lives near Birds Hill Park with his wife, two daughters, two dogs, a cat, and a pig.



Dr. Nicci Bachmann2018-07-30T21:24:07+00:00

Dr. Nicci (nee Gagawchuk) Bachmann graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in May 2012.  After three summers as a veterinary summer student, we are delighted that Nicci has joined the practice as a licensed veterinarian.

She is originally from the Whitemouth area and we’re happy she’s come home to the Eastman area to practice.

rbrittneyI was born and raised in Winnipeg and spent many summers at our cottage in Lac du Bonnet.

I have always had a great love for animals and knew from the age of six that I wanted to be a veterinarian.

After completing my Bachelor of Science degree at University of Winnipeg I went on to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine and graduated in 2013.

I joined Beausejour Animal Hospital in the spring of 2015. Along with my enjoyment of all aspects of companion animal medicine I have a passion for equine care as well. I hope to meet more as time goes by.

At home, I enjoy spending time with my fiancé and family, walking my dog Maully and competing with my horse Dollar.
