My perfect day is being around cats and dogs! And that is my usual day! I love to work with animals and help them as much as it is possible. I am originally from Russia where I gained my vet qualification and 3 years of experience with small domestic animals. I spent a summer to USA for my internship program at UNI time. In 2013 me and my husband decided to move over to Sydney and in 2017 we continued our adventures and crossed the NSW boarder through to Brisbane and I adore this city. I am very interested in animal behavior and pet nutrition that can help your fur baby to recover much faster. Since I was 5 year old I have always had cats and dogs in my family. Now I am a proud owner of 2 cats Yoda the girl (yes, I know it is boy’s name) and Dobby the boy. And 1 sweetest Whippet girl Ulla 😉 I truly enjoy spending my time after work with them. At my free time I love to go to the gym, catching up with friends, swimming and cooking. In future I would like to pass the National Vet examination to continue in the Veterinary career.
