I joined the verterinary industry in 1997 working in a clinic as a groomer and nurse assistant. This developed into a passion for client relations within the animal industry and I've since worked towards making this my specialty area.
Prior to joining the veterinary industry I worked as a Kennel hand with show dogs and as a pet groomer. This led me to working at the Animal Welfare League as an animal attendant in both the shelter and boarding centre.
I am also involved with the RSPCA Foster Care Program and always have extra animals in my care. It is very rewarding to see them start the next phase of their lives knowing my family has contributed to their successful adoption.
I have had a passion for animals from a very young age so it was no surprise to my family when I wanted to pursue a career in the veterinary industry. I finished school and was lucky enough to fall on my feet. I was given the opportunity to work in a veterinary surgery and gain my certificate 4 in veterinary nursing.
I have worked in both small animal and mixed practises for the past 15 years and have now come to join the team at the Companion Animal Health Centre as a member of the Client Relations team.
In my spare time I can be found at horse shows or just relaxing with my family.
With a passion for animal since an early age, after attending Urrbrae, I chose to enrol in a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science through the University of Adelaide.
Early 2010 I graduated this course and set out to find a job where I could work with animals in some way; with an eagerness for further education, further study in an animal related job was highly likely. Late in 2010, I was invited for an interview at the Companion Animal Health Centre and offered a position in client relations. I jumped at the chance to work with an excellent group of people and to develop my skills in an area I was new to.
