I started my vet nurse journey in 2007 in a small animal practise in the Hunter Valley NSW for some time then moved into emergency nursing for 4 yrs in Newcastle before heading to QLD to join the team here in murgon in 2015 since moving to the area we have established ourselves with land cattle and also our fur children


Veterinary Nurse

I have been in my dream career of veterinary nursing for 7yrs.

I love nursing all species of animals and like helping clients with their various animal needs.

I have owned and bred horses, cattle, Rottweilers and poultry. My family now consists of 3 horses 3 Rottweilers a cat conure parrot and some chickens.

When I am not at the clinic I am out trail/distance riding, training/playing with my Rottweilers or taking care of the many tasks on my property.


Veterinary Nurse

I’ve always had a love for animals & after moving back home to the South Burnett in 2018, the opportunity for me to start my vet nursing career came up and I didn’t have to think twice about it! I enjoy dog grooming and completed my certificate in Animal Grooming in early 2018 on the Sunshine Coast. If I’m not nursing or grooming, you’ll find me either in the garden planting cactuses, playing fetch with the 3 fur babies, catching up with family, or having a bbq with my partner & friends.


Veterinary Nurse Assistant

Growing up, I always loved being around animals, luckily for me, my family had no shortage of them. I graduated from the university of Queensland in 2017 with a Bachelor of Applied Science, majoring in Equine Science. Since graduating, I have worked as a vet nurse in both large and small animal clinics from the Scenic Rim to North QLD. I have recently moved to the area after spending some time exploring Queensland in our little 70s caravan. When I'm not working, I enjoy camping, the beach and spending time with my horses, pups and husband.
