I began nursing in 2012 for a General Practice in Canberra, where I completed my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and worked for my first few years. During this time I also began working at an Emergency Hospital, doing extra shifts and increasing my exposure to all types of veterinary emergencies.
In 2017, I moved to Townsville, commencing work as an Internal Medicine Nurse for a referral hospital, focusing on all the internal diseases that affect our furry friends. I loved this role and it has helped me discover my passion for all things medicine.
I came to Greencross in 2020 and continue to love bringing all that I can to animal health care and connect with every little friend that comes in the door.
