- Position: Trainee Veterinary Nurse / Animal Care Assistant
Growing up I have been surrounded by a variety of animals such as cats, dogs, chickens, ducks, rabbits and hamsters.
I have always loved wildlife and ever since I was a child I have taken on birds for rehabilitation to then hopefully release back into the wild.
I studied at Riseholme college for 3 years where I achieved a BTEC in Animal Care and Animal Management.
Unfortunately I didn't have the chance to pursue my dream of working with animals so I went into human care. I worked for 10 years with the elderly with dementia and residential care.
An opportunity came up for maternity cover at a veterinary practice which is how I managed to get back into animal care. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there so knew I definitely wanted to continue in veterinary nursing.
In January 2018 I joined South Lincs Vet Group, I work at Sutterton Veterinary Hospital and I am enjoying getting more experience of seeing a wide range of procedures. I will hopefully start my training to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2019.
