Diane Séguin MS, CWR

Diane Séguin is a Certified Animal Health Technician (veterinary nurse), and has worked in small animal practices for 12 years before moving to the veterinary diagnostic industry for the last 17 years.  She is also a Certified Wildlife Rehabilitator and has recently obtained her Master’s in One Health from the University of Edinburgh, where her dissertation explored the place of wildlife rehabilitation within One Health. Diane has volunteered with wildlife rehabilitation organisations for over 20 years in different capacities – from animal care, fundraising, committee work, and contributing to educational materials. She genuinely feels that wildlife rehabilitators have a wealth of knowledge to share and are an essential part of a more holistic approach to health.  Diane believes we must consider the environment, human and animal health as one and see a transdisciplinary approach as a way forward for a sustainable future.  She appreciates a systems approach to challenges – evaluating them with different lenses and receives much joy from helping and enabling others in their projects. To stay grounded, Diane enjoys gardening, photography, reading, and long walks in nature.
