Belinda is one of our newest nurses to join the team at Springvale. She started her veterinary nursing career over a decade in a small rural practice in NSW, completing her Cert 4 in 2012. She then took a 7-year hiatus from the Veterinary industry to pursue a career as a professional Jockey. After a few too many injuries and missing her love of Veterinary nursing, she decided it was time to return to the clinic setting and found her place here at Greencross Springvale. Belinda has a keen interest in both surgery and pathology and enjoys advancing her skills and knowledge in these areas.
In her down time she still loves riding her horses, working out at the gym, and playing with her border collie Oscar.
