I started working for Greencross Vets as a School-Based trainee in 2016 where I commenced and completed my Certificate II in Animal Studies at the Deeragun clinic. Upon completion of my Certificate in 2017, I won a scholarship to study my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing once I had completed Year 12. With my Dad working in the animal industry and growing up around all different types of animals my whole life, from cats and dogs to cattle and horses, it was natural for me to have such a big passion for all animals and their welfare. I also work at the local Animal Shelter when I am not in the vet clinic, so animals are a massive part of my life!
I qualified as a Vet Nurse in 2013 while doing a consecutive degree in science (and some other less-animal-oriented aspects of study).
Following that, I spent time involved in wildlife disease ecology research, which did involve some animal handling, but not the type you’d find coming into the vet clinic.
I started a vet degree at JCU in 2018, and so came back to work as a vet nurse as well.
I have lived in Townsville for five years, and I am currently studying my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. My love for animals grew from having a menagerie of pets as a kid! I moved to Australia from Ireland and worked at wildlife parks, this is where I realised I wanted to work with animals as my career, and decided it was time to take the leap and begin studying. I started with Greencross Vets as an intern. I love getting to work with different species, and experiencing something new every day. I am a wildlife carer and especially love looking after Aussie birds!
I have been with Greencross since November 2017. I am currently studying my certificate ll in Vet Nursing and on completion plan to continue my studies with a certificate lV in Vet Nursing. I love having the ability to help the wellbeing of patients and watching our unwell patients recover, and return home happy and healthy. I have two domestic short hairs called Luca and Ernie who are definitely my biggest time wasters
