I started at Greencross Gawler in August of 2014 following a longtime dream of working with animals. I have completed a Certificate 4 in Veterinary nursing through Open Colleges. I have always had a great love of animals having grown up with pets my whole life. I now have two dogs of my own Holly a very playful Havanese and Boston the very patient Maltese cross. My animal family also includes two cats Astrid & Hiccup. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my two young children and family and if I get time, reading a good book.
