Dr Durmuller was born and raised in Port Alberni, BC. Having grown
up around animals, her love for them started early. Shortly after a
career fair in grade 9, she decided that she wanted to become a
veterinarian and was determined to make her dream a reality.
graduating from high school in 1999, she moved to Victoria where she
completed 3 years of study at UVIC. She was then accepted into the
Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, SK where she
graduated with her DVM in 2006. Tania spent the first 1.5 years
practicing up island in Ladysmith and then decided to move to Victoria
in January 2008. She started working at North Douglas Veterinary
Clinic at this time, but became an associate veterinarian at McKenzie
Veterinary Services when the clinics merged that summer.
In her spare time, Tania spends most of it with her family. That
includes chasing after her incredibly “busy” 1 and 4-year-old
daughters, with the help of her partner-in-crime Josh, as well as
cuddling the geriatric family cat “Smeegle”. In between the chaos, she
still tries to sneak in a workout at the gym since she’s always had a
love for health and fitness. That being said, she also loves her “lazy”
time watching Netflix, trashy reality TV, or NFL football (go Cowboys!).
Given her busy life at home, she looks forward to the “break” that her
job at McKenzie gives her!
