Dr. Rick Wiens grew up on a mixed grain and dairy farm South of Winnipeg in Glenlea, MB. He graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1996. In 1997 he and Dr. Mariko Boorberg were married and both were hired to work at the Morden Veterinary Clinic. Rick has always had a special interest in dairy medicine and spends most of his working hours with dairy, beef and horses.
Rick and Mariko (who has kept up her license but is currently holding down the fort at home) have been blessed with six children: Ben, Naomi, Anika, Paul, James, and Josh. This makes for a very full home life and little spare time. However, Rick also enjoys teaching Sunday School, coaching cross country skiing, mountain biking, and family canoe expeditions.
