Role at SAH

Veterinary Nurse (+ Puppy Preschool Educator)


CERT IV Veterinary Nurse since 2016

How long have you worked at SAH?

Less than a year

What is the MOST enjoyable thing about your job?

I love working with all the different animals we see at SAH! Such a wide variety of species and personalities.


Do you have any pets?

Winston the Italian Greyhound, Aj the Rottweiler X, Penny the rescue Greyhound and JubJub the Central Bearded Dragon.

What 3 things would you take to a deserted island?

Winston, Aj, Penny 😅 I simply couldn’t leave them behind!

Where is your favourite local place to go for a break?

Why would I leave the house when I can stay home, cuddle the dogs and watch The Office and eat Ben and Jerrys icecream? Although, I do like to take the pack for walks around Nobby’s/ Horse Shoe Beach.

Where would you go for a good meal out locally?

My go-to date night, or meeting up with friends,  is Morpeth Wood Fired Pizzas and Indian Delicacies, so yummy!

If you could have any animal at all as a pet, what would you choose and why?

A chinchilla, because they’re heckin’ cute! Or a Macaw; but I do not have the time to give them the attention and enrichment they need, so I’ll settle for giving extra cuddles to the ones who come to SAH!

Tell us a little more about yourself?

I’ve worked as a Veterinary Nurse in an Ophthalmology Specialist and a Shelter Clinic, so I gained a keen interest in all things Eyes, Geriatrics, Neonates, and Behaviour! I have also started teaching Puppy Preschool at SAH.

Two truths and a lie!

Hover over the statement to find out if it’s true. Green is true and red is a lie. Did you get it right?
