Born and raised in PNG, I was fortunate to live near a local animal shelter and often took animals home for the weekend to give them a break from shelter life. Moving to Australia in the late 1980s, I grew up on a property where we lived amongst cows, pigs, dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, goats, turkeys, a wild variety of parrots and pheasants and a cockatoo named George. We also adopted ex-race horses so they could live out their retirement in comfort.
Having worked in various industries around the world, with a long-held interest in animal welfare and rescue, I finally decided to take on the challenge of returning to study later in life and decided Veterinary Nursing was the path for me.
During this time, I worked at a dog and cat boarding kennel and 2 horse stables where my interest and education in animal husbandry, behaviour and nutrition deepened.
Previously living in Toowoomba amongst my rescue family of dogs, cats, geese, ducks, chickens, and 1 horse, I spent 12 months volunteering with a small animal clinic where I gained a fascinating and invaluable introduction into animal medicine, surgery and emergency care.
Returning with my husband to the Sunshine Coast in late 2018, to be closer to my parents, I am currently owned by 4 rescue cats and look forward to completing my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and continuing my studies in Emergency and Critical Care in the future.
In my spare time, I work on my parents’ properties, groom dogs for my friends, rescue and rehabilitate some amazing wildlife, and train 5-6 days a week in CrossFit. In the next few years, I plan to travel throughout Asia and Europe to volunteer with animal rescue organisations to further my experience and lend a helping hand where and however I can.
