 How long have you been a vet nurse?

I have worked in the industry since 2010, in November 2011 I completed my Cert IV in Veterinary

Do you have to do ongoing further education?

I am currently studying a Bachelor of Veterinary Technology by distance education through CSU
and will graduate in 2025.

Do you have any pets? Can you tell me a bit more about them?

I have many pets but my 3 legged rescue cat Milo is my favourite. He was surrendered to me
when he was 2 yr old, besides missing a hind leg and limiting  his jumping ability it hasn’t
affected his life otherwise and he is most affectionate.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Vet nursing is a very rewarding job, I like being able to advocate for patients and give advice
to owners. There is no standard day as a nurse, everyday presents new challenges and
opportunities to learn. Helping animals through illness and into recovery is a truly rewarding
