I have my Cert III in Companion Animal Services and have also completed my Cert IV in Vet Nursing, I am currently undertaking my Diploma in Veterinary Nursing. I have been with Greencross Vets for just over a year now and absolutely love the challenges of vet nursing as well as observing the transition from unwell animals to healthy ones. I own 3 furbabies, 2 cats- Sully and Erebus as well as a dog named Kaiser who is a Cattle Dog X.
My desire to work with animals started at a young age, having been born and raised working around animals it was a definite. At the earliest convenience I started participating in more experiences to work with animals. I did my work experience courses at the RSPCA and Vet Clinics. I then went on to volunteer for 6 Months at Greencross Kelso (formally known as Kelso Vet Clinic) and was offered a job in July 2009. I became a Qualified Cert IV. Veterinary Nurse in November 2012. I took on a role as Regional Marketing Manager in 2014. In the early months of 2015 I was offered and accepted a fully funded Scholarship for a Diploma in Nursing. I then stepped up in the lead role as Practice Manager in August 2015. I love both my roles here and can’t see myself doing anything else. I thoroughly enjoy working along all our patients, whether it is routine or an emergency. However neonate care/orphans are my favoured part of the job; I have raised and rehabilitated many species including a 3 week old swimmer puppy, Bear. With this is started up and successfully run our Cat Adoption Program. I have a big interest in herpetology (study of reptiles and amphibians) as well as avian care. At home I have my own Menagerie that all started with my Beautiful Black Great Dane Nyx, along with Achyllies my Harlequin Great Dane, 3 rescue cats Eevee, Dieago and Sven, I have Bearded Dragons Toothless, Spyro and Yamaha, Droid the Alexandrine Parrot and Geronimo a Guinea Pig.
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 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. My first job working with animals was at one of the largest RSPCAs in the country in Melbourne. There I was walking dogs, grooming cats and socializing rabbits. I am hoping to study a certificate IV in captive animals once I complete my certificate IV veterinary nursing. I myself have a few pets including Junior a wolfhound, Kelsey a Fox Terrier, Zoe a Kelpie x and 2 Domestic Short Hair Cats : Benny and Socks.
