Meet The Team
I completed my Certificate II in Animal Studies when I was in year 10 at school, which allowed me to completed my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2020 after being a full time student. After having many different pets throughout my childhood, this led me to go down the path of becoming a vet nurse. After being a student within a Greencross Clinic, I was lucky enough to be offered a position working as a vet nurse. Greencross has offered me many opportunities, including working with amazing & talented staff, while also allowing myself to expand my knowledge. There are many things I enjoy about being a vet nurse, these include talking to clients about their beloved pets, offering advice when needed (whilst always managing to sneak their animals some treats), different illnesses that we are confronted with and watching them being managed. My fur family include my little toy poodle Rio, who is always full of energy. Overall, being a vet nurse is challenging but also very rewarding.
Nikki grew up in the Pilbara and always knew she wanted to be a veterinary nurse. Luckily enough Nikki began her journey as a trainee and never looked back, that was more than 18 years ago! Nikki finds veterinary nursing to be the most rewarding and challenging career. Her passion is educating pet parents on the best health care for their fur babies, and promotes only gold standard services. Nikki won Veterinary Nurse of the year Australia Wide in 2017.
I am Perth-born and raised, I joined the Greencross team in May 2018 as Practice Manager of O’Connor and am thoroughly enjoying the challenge. I completed my certificate IV Veterinary nursing almost 10 years ago!. I absolutely love greeting clients and their pets when they come through the door and will happily have a good chat about anything and everything. My passion is providing gold standard of patient care in all aspects of nursing.

Tammie’s favourite activity growing up was fussing over her dogs when she wasn’t trying to rescue injured wildlife and stray cats.
Shortly after the passing of her family’s two golden retrievers, she moved to Perth to focus on her dream of becoming a vet so that she could help her animals in a way that she hadn’t been able to before. Tammie graduated from Murdoch University in 2017 and has worked in several small animal practices in Perth. Her interests are pain & arthritis management, behaviour and soft tissue surgery.
Tammie believes that all animals should be afforded the best quality of life possible, and this is evident in the lifestyle of her pampered mongrel Maya who was adopted off the streets as a puppy and is now living her own rags-to-riches story.
