Dr. Krystil Jones – Veterinarian
Krystil was born in Canada, but grew up in South Africa. As a child, she had aspirations of being an oceanographer, environmentalist, actress, marine biologist, model, doctor…and so the list goes on. Upon completion of high school, she returned to Canada to pursue her post-secondary education. She received a Bachelors of Science degree in biological sciences from the University of Alberta, and then continued on at the University of Calgary to obtain a Degree in Veterinary Medicine. This fall, she is set to return to South Africa to work as a small animal practitioner for 3 months, and in the new year, she will settle in Canada and pursue further veterinary work.
Krystil’s involvement with Panterra over the last 10 years not only reflects her passion for all animals, big and small, marine and terrestrial, but has also afforded her the opportunity to be involved with the bigger picture concept of wildlife conservation. Her heart is still in saving our oceans.
