Role at SAH
I have a double degree in Veterinary Biology & Veterinary Science and I graduated in August 2020.
How long have you worked at SAH?
My entire career.
What is the MOST enjoyable thing about your job?
Every day… It’s wonderful to have such a positive impact on the animal-human bond. I also love working with such a skilled and knowledgeable team – we all lift each other.
Do you have any pets?
I have a large rescue mutt named Clove, who is a big lovable oaf, and a tiny sparrow named Tiny Bird, who keeps me endlessly entertained.
Where is your favourite local place to go for a break?
I love going to Redhead beach with my dog and watching all the different types of dogs frolicking around.
Where would you go for a good meal out locally?
I love El Chapos in Maitland, they do fantastic burritos and a good sangria
If you could have any animal at all as a pet, what would you choose and why?
I would choose a leopard seal. They are so beautiful and prehistoric. They fascinate and terrify me in equal measure.
What is interesting about your job?
I was helping a beautiful lorikeet recover from anaesthetic , which can sometimes make them feel a bit nauseous. The bird was slightly disoriented, so I was gently stroking and talking to it while it came around. It seemed to perk up, so I allowed it toclimb onto my shoulder, where it cuddled close to my cheek. I was very touched by this, until it vomited in my ear! I couldn’t blame the poor bird – and it did seem to feel a lot better afterwards!
