Ellie has been volunteering to help animals since 2018 and finally pursued her professional calling and passion in 2021 when she became a qualified veterinary nurse. Professionally, Ellie is driven by having the opportunity to advocate for animals and help them throughout their stay in hospital to allow the animals to be as comfortable as possible.
Away from the clinic, her home is filled with animals from dogs and cats to bunnies and birds. When not in the clinic, Ellie spends her time with friends and family, or socialising wherever there is music.
Ellie says, “working for Greencross Vets is like being surrounded by family, it is an incredible team to be a part of.”

Veterinary Nurse and Hydro Therapist
Cassie is a Registered Veterinary Nurse and Hydro therapist at Greencross Vets Ocean Reef. On Mondays and Tuesdays you might her in the clinic on reception or in a surgical nursing role. On Thursday and Friday afternoons she don’s a wetsuit and is in the pool or underwater treadmill with our hydrotherapy patients. She adores seeing the dogs she works with improving. Cassie enjoys the challenge of creating goals and care plans for them to work on at home with their owners too, her favourite part is when she massages the dog at the end of their hydro session, because really, who doesn’t enjoy a dog-cuddle.
Cassie completed the Certificate in Hydrotherapy course with Dogs in Motion in Melbourne, this course is the only available course in Australia to provide certification as a hydro therapist. Our goal at Ocean Reef is to be the most holistic hydrotherapy centre in WA, being able to offer both hydrotherapy in the pool and underwater treadmill with the hope that in future we may be able to expand to offer this service to cats also.
When not in clinic, Cassie lives with my husband, our five guinea pigs, who live in a mansion in our living room and my little dog Queenie who is a Shetland Sheepdog x Chihuahua
