Growing up I have always had a love for animals. My father was the local veterinarian in Kingscliff at the time and this has given me the foundation for my career with animals. Most of my afternoons were spent helping at the clinic and I’ve always felt at home in this environment.
I have worked as a zookeeper and a veterinary nurse, but my passion has always leaned towards nursing as I love the feeling of helping animals in need. Although at times being a veterinary nurse can be challenging it is also extremely rewarding, creating a bond with the animals in our care.
Often being at the vet can be a stressful time for many animals so creating an environment to help aid this and gaining the trust of the animals in my care is important to me. It is also awesome to get to know all our clients who love their pets so much and seeing their faces light up, both owners and pets when they are reunited.
