Victoria comes to us all the way from Russia, where she grew up and began veterinary school. Realising that veterinary care in Russia wasn’t going to provide her with the opportunities for animal care that she was after, she moved to NZ and enrolled in the Diploma of Veterinary Nursing programme which she completed in 2017. At work, Victoria is fantastic at staying calm in a crisis and really enjoys the challenges of working in an emergency clinic. She loves working with dogs and has a real affinity for working productively with them, to make any visit or stay in our hospital as low stress as possible. When not at work Victoria enjoys travelling NZ to see the sights and also is an absolute whizz with anything computer-related.
