President, LifeStream Animal Bloodbank Inc.
Since starting her company only 15 years ago, Sandra Powell has become the best friend of man’s best friend. Lifestream Animal Bloodbank is the only facility in Ontario – and one of only two in Canada – to provide blood and plasma for transfusions to treat canines with life-threatening needs. A lifetime career as a research and laboratory technologist – with a focus on bleeding disorders in dogs – inspired her to provide the lifeline to dogs in need. Today she sets up doggie blood clinics across Ontario to provide blood and plasma to veterinarians in Canada and around the world.
