Education: Ontario Veterinary College

Dr. Mantle has been working at Scott Veterinary Clinic since 1984.

She was raised in a small town in Quebec, where she became an avid equestrian competitor, owning and showing horses in various disciplines of the horse industry. As a natural progression of her equestrian passions, she developed an early interest in veterinary medicine. She completed a year of post-secondary education at Concordia University in Montreal prior to transferring to the University of Guelph. She graduated with a BSc in Agriculture from the Ontario Agricultural College in 1977, and then continued on to obtain her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1981. She has been working in private practice since graduation.

She shares her home with her husband, two children, multiple cats, several horses and a flock of heritage chickens. Her personal interests include gardening, equestrian pursuits, breeding heritage chickens, and travel. She is a keen orchid grower, and is the past secretary of the Orchid Society of the Royal Botanical Gardens.
