Hi, my name is Gabi. I am a Veterinary nurse and have been working here at Chandlers since 2013.

I’m a country girl at heart who grew up in the rural town of Moree, NSW. Toowoomba is about of much of a city that I can handle! I launched my career as a Veterinary nurse in 2006. I’m currently one of the Certificate IV qualified Veterinary nurses based at Greencross Chandlers Vets. I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the clinic. What excites me about my job is surgical and emergency nursing, honing my skills as a Veterinary nurse and caring for patients from all different walks of life. My patients always receive the best care. Vets who work with me will often say if they ever end up in hospital they hope to have a nurse like me looking after them. My husband & I have just welcomed our first child into the family! In addition to my family of three, I have a few fur babies as well. ‘Kora’, ‘Kitten’ & ‘Puss’ (original cat names I know)
