In 2012, I achieved my qualification as a registered veterinary nurse in the UK, holding a diploma in veterinary nursing. After embarking on several months of adventurous travel around the world, I found a new home in Sydney, where I joined a large multi-disciplinary hospital. This opportunity allowed me to gain invaluable experience in emergency and critical care as well as internal medicine.
Since 2021, I have been a dedicated member of the NCVS team, holding the position of Training Coordinator. My role encompasses extensive research into the latest recommendations, ensuring top-notch patient care at all times. A significant aspect of my responsibilities involves providing training and support to both junior and senior nurses across all departments. This entails one-on-one training sessions, engaging group discussions, and informative seminars.
In pursuit of expanding my expertise, I completed a certificate in anaesthesia in 2023 and am currently pursuing a certificate in emergency & critical care. I hold dual registrations with both the RCVS and VNCA, which further demonstrate my commitment to professional growth and excellence.
Apart from my passion for veterinary nursing, I also have a profound love for travel. On multiple occasions, I volunteered in Botswana and Vietnam, actively contributing to providing healthcare to street dogs.
Within the comfort of my home, I share my life with three delightful companions: Odie, a rescue dog; Toby, a rescue cat; and a lively group of eight chickens who go by the names of Benny, Scarface, Henry, Betty, Sparkles, Sam, Geri, and Jack. They never fail to bring joy and entertainment to my everyday life.
