In 2017, Michelle decided that a change was in order after running a very successful and busy baby-related business for the last 12 years. Michelle started her Cert 4 in Vet Nursing after a lifetime of being a passionate pet lover. Michelle joined Greencross Vets shortly after and has not looked back. Michelle has always had a strong passion for working within the veterinary industry and revels in the busy and challenging environment. Helping her Veterinary team to achieve their best is a passion of Michelle’s and she loves working with the team to give the best possible service to clients and patients of Kessels Road. When not working at the clinic, Michelle enjoys spending time with her Wife and their 2 boys plus a plethora of pets including two Golden Retrievers, Malley and Moose, and the ever-growing number of Cat’s that she simply cannot resist when they end up in the clinic as abandoned.

Hello! My name is Amy, I have worked at Kessels Road for 3 and a half years now. I started when I was in year 12 as a school based trainee and was fortunate enough to be offered a part time position which has now become a full time position as of last year. I have 3 beautiful cats. Cleo is my first cat ever and she is a handful, she loves a good belly rub but only when she says it’s ok. Flossy was a feral kitten brought into the clinic a couple years ago, she is now fat and happy and loves a cuddle. Theo is my special boy. He also came in as a feral kitten, he had a pretty horrible start to life. He was unable to walk on one back leg when he came to us, after radiographs we found he had a broken pelvis and femur, it just so happened that the leg he was walking on was actually the worst out of his 2 back legs. He now, after a lot of love and help, is able to walk normally, run and jump and play. He is the most snuggly kitten you will ever meet.
I love my job at Kessels and the amazing people I work with.
I have made life long friends here. My favourite part of nursing is taking
bloods and placing catheters. I also love doing dentals and surgery.
