Emergency Vets

I Started my career at Beach Road Veterinary clinic in Papakura. During my time there I studied my Diploma of Veterinary nursing at Unitec. Once graduated I moved on to other small animal and mixed equine practices.

After 10yrs I took a break from fulltime in clinic work and moved in to industry as a rep for a large veterinary pharmaceuticals company. During this time, I kept my hand in working on a casual basis for another emergency clinic.

My passion for clinical work never waivered so decided to return to nursing full time two years ago.  This afforded me the opportunity to spend a lot more time in specialist clinics and with the VSA team.

When the position came up, I jumped at the chance.

When not working I am riding my home breed warmblood in mostly dressage competitions. And I sometimes can also be found trying my hand at long distance running.

I not only have horses but two dogs, Doug and Rosie, and my two cats, Maple and Tex. Along with a long-suffering Nemo fish and a lot of goldfish.
