Veterinary Nurse & Receptionist
Rachel is currently studying her Certificate lll in Veterinary Nursing. She began working as a veterinary nurse in 2016 at Greencross Vets Deeragun. She aspires to be a fully qualified Veterinary Nurse and hopes to take her skills overseas to volunteer and help animals in need.
Rachel was born in Townsville and lived here for nine years before moving to Nhulunbuy (Gove), a remote town in North East Arnhem Land and recently moved back here in 2015. She enjoys swimming and photography outside of work. Her favourite animals are tigers and elephants.
I have completed my Certificate III in Companion Animal Services studies and have also completed my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing qualification. I am currently undertaking my Diploma in Veterinary Nursing. I have been with Greencross Vets for over three years now and absolutely love the challenges of veterinary nursing. I enjoy helping and caring for animals, helping patients transition from unwell animals to healthy patients. I own five furkids, three cats- Sully, Erebus & Pepi, as well as a two dogs, Kaiser (Cattle x) and Ulrich (Swiss Shepherd).
My desire to work with animals started at a young age, having been raised working around animals; it was a definite career path for me.
I volunteered for six months at Greencross Vets Kelso in 2008 and was offered a position in July 2009. I became a Qualified Certificate IV Veterinary Nurse in November 2012 and I took on an added role as North QLD Regional Marketing Manager in 2014.
I stepped up into the leadership position of Practice Manager in August 2015. I was offered and accepted a fully funded Scholarship for a Diploma in general nursing which I completed in February 2019.
I thoroughly enjoy working alongside all our patients, routine or emergency.
I have a strong passion for neonates, exotic pets and wildlife and wish to continue my education in the near future with a Certificate in Captive Animals’ studies.
Growing up in the rural town of Barraba NSW – where animals out number people – I was surrounded by animals from before I could walk. My favourite place to visit was my grandfathers’ farm where I could feed the pigs, cows, sheep, horses, ducks, chickens, ferrets and rabbits.
I first realised that I wanted to work with animals after an unfortunate accident with my dog that followed with several visits to the local vets. I was fascinated with watching the progress of my dogs’ health and how the vets cared for my pet.
My first job working with animals was at one of the largest RSPCA’s in the country in Melbourne. There I was responsible for caring for and walking the dogs, grooming cats and socializing rabbits.
I have now finished my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing qualification and I plan to start my Certificate IV in Captive Animals studies within the next year.
