Dr. Sherif Boctor

Dr. Boctor obtained his veterinary degree in 1996. He and his family moved to Canada in 2003; and he started practicing small animal medicine in 2004.
Dr. Boctor enjoys practicing medicine, and finds the most satisfaction in performing surgical dental procedures.
In his leisure time he enjoys playing squash and basketball with his friends and family, and spending time with his 2 cats – Roo and Logi.
Roo and Logi had come to spend “just the weekend” with Dr. Boctor while they were waiting to get adopted; but the girls decided that they had found their forever home with the Boctor family and never left.
Dr. Boctor’s goal is simple: “treat my patients as if they are my own.’



Julie was born and raised in Edmonton.

She graduated from NAIT in 1992.
Her focus has always been in small animals though she has dabbled in some large animal medicine.
She loves all creatures great and small and enjoys every aspect of her job.
She currently lives outside of Stony Plain with her two lovely daughters and variety of furry friends.



Lana graduated from the Animal Health Technology Program at Fairview College in 1996.  She grew up on a farm and had a purebred herd of Gelbvieh Cattle until 2003 when her parents sold the farm and dispersed their herd.  She started in a mixed animal practice after graduation but soon decided that it was not what she wanted to specialize in.

Lana then moved into Edmonton in 1997 and has been working in companion animal medicine since.  She has also been working part time at an Emergency Clinic since January 2010.  She works there on weekends and weekday’s at Chappelle.  The experience at the emergency clinic has enhanced her skills as a Technologist and has exposed her to many different conditions that we may not see in Regular Practice.

Lana has an older cat named Squeak and a young dog named Isla, who is a Labradoodle that has a lot of energy.  She has travelled to many different countries and would like to continue to see more.

Trystyn Buchholz



Trystyn was raised in Medicine Hat until she made the big decision to go to university in Kamloops BC to pursue a Bachelor of Science. Following this, she would attend and graduate from Olds College from the Animal Health Technology program in 2020. She joined our team in 2021.

With a healthy amount of rookie experience in the Veterinary field, she is very excited to show case her skills with our clinic. Trystyn has previously worked in clinics in Medicine Hat, Kamloops, Wetaskiwin, and now in the big city of Edmonton!

Trystyn has always had a deep love of animals and all things furry. From a young age, she knew the veterinary field was where she was destined to be, and as time went on her love grew deeper and she became more curious about the medical aspect of saving furry lives. The favourite part of her job, would be getting to see the smiling faces of pet parents when she has been able to help them in any way possible!

During her free time, Trystyn enjoys spending time with her fiancé (VERY SOON to be Husband) Lonnie, and their fur children, Silvia, Baby Belle, Schnapps, Captain Morgan, and Bubba. They love anything outdoors, quadding, dirt biking, sledding, and camping. When time permits, they love to go to Medicine Hat and visit their 2 year old Nephew and 1 year old niece; of course with all the fur babies in tow.

Trystyn is very excited to be a part of the Chappelle Veterinary Clinics team; and is looking forward to helping everyone with the care and maintenance of their furry babies.



Sam recently graduated from NAIT’s VMA program and is excited to join the Veterinary world. Sam did two years in Psychology, has a certificate in Business Administration, Accounting Technology, Medical Terminology, and started Nursing before finally taking the journey to become a Veterinary Medical Assistant.

After working at an animal shelter, she started her own dog training business to educate and help owners understand the importance of basic obedience and creating a foundation for success in hopes to reduce the number of euthanasia and surrenders. As an alumni Cast Member for Disney, Sam enjoys her time watching the classics, singing “Let it Go” with her nieces, and spending time outdoors with her husband and rescue dog,  Archibald (Archie).




Heidi has been an animal enthusiast since she was in kindergarten. After seeing a fascinating “emergency c-section” in show-and-tell by a friend’s veterinarian mom, she knew a life-long career with animals was her calling. She has been doing professional pet styling for dogs and cats of all breeds for 8 years. She graduated from the Animal Behavior College in 2016 and obtained her VMA diploma along with certificates in pet massage, animal nutrition, and cat management and training. She will be graduating from NAIT as an RVT in 2023. Along with her career, Heidi enjoys spending time with her husband, two young boys, their dalmatian and three lizards.
