I started working for Inner South Veterinary Centre in 2011 after a long background in IT and technical related roles. Every day is something different here, and I adore being a member of the team. I love all animals, but have a special interest in all things feline. I am the proud owner of two beautiful ragdoll cats; Beau and Toby, and two rats; Van and Halen.
I joined the Inner South team in April 2015 after moving from Sydney to Canberra. I have over 11 years of veterinary nursing experience and completed my certificate IV in 2005. I spent the last 4 years working in a specialist hospital in Sydney, where I discovered a passion for veterinary oncology. While I love working with cats and dogs, I look forward to learning more about the exotics, particularly birds.
At home I am kept entertained by Brigit the crazy calico cat, Ariel the golden albino axolotl, Mushu the siamese fighting fish, and a tank full of neon tetras. In Sydney I have a large people family as well as Salome the labrador x great dane, cats Yuki, Arthur, Mo and Stan, and chickens Frankie and Grace.
I joined the Inner South Veterinary Centre team in March 2014 and love learning about all the reptiles and birds. I have over 14 years Nursing experience after gaining my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2004. My special interests are in surgical nursing, animal behavior and reptiles. Canberra born and bred, I have moved back to Canberra from Sydney to be closer to family as my husband and I have two beautiful daughters. At home we are kept entertained by rescued Greyhound, Polly; Boston Terrier, Daisy; and Siamese Cat - Flossie!
Lainey came to Inner South Veterinary Centre in September 2014 after working in a smaller Canberra vet practice. Lainey graduated from her Cert IV in Vet Nursing in 2014 and hopes to further her studies in the future by completing a Diploma in Surgical Nursing. Lainey has a Cert III in Dog behaviour and Training.
At home, Lainey has 3 dogs Bella, Bria and Gee, a thoroughbred gelding named Tommy and 3 pythons Kingston, Louis and Gizmo.
I started working in the Comfort Cattery at Inner South Veterinary Centre in 2010, as I have always been interested in animals. During this time I have enjoyed looking after cats, rabbits, ferrets, rats and birds. This encouraged a desire to learn more about animals, and become more involved in their health and wellbeing, leading me to pursue my Certificate IV in veterinary nursing. I enjoy looking after our patients and learning ways in which we can help them and their owners enjoy happy and healthy lives together.
I joined the Inner South Vet Centre Team in January 2015 and am finding it a very exciting place to work, full of friendly faces and a vibrant atmosphere. I recently moved to Canberra from Sydney and am enjoying the relaxing lifestyle Canberra has to offer. At home I have a cheeky 11-year-old cat, Tilly, who is the centre of attention at home and takes ownership over any new blanket or chair she comes across.
I joined the ISVC team in January 2016. After completing my diploma of Animal Technology in 2010 I was pleased to have the opportunity to work in a variety of veterinary practices in Canberra, before returning to study in 2012. I also worked as a product advisor for Harrisons bird food, and spent a considerable amount of time training organisations about Harrison benefits for birds.
I am passionate about small animals, and love being at ISVC where I get to help care for not only dogs and cats, but also such a large variety of small animals.
At home I have the pleasure of the company of two budgies, Paris and Leto, two princess parrots, Lottie and Beckett, and the very independent bunny Button.
I joined Inner South Veterinary Centre in February 2016 as part of the Reception Team. I have over 5 years Veterinary Reception experience and really enjoy being a part of the “face” of the practice. I love seeing the happy pets in the waiting room and spoiling them with cuddles and treats. I am enjoying learning all about the exotic animals that come through our door as well as the large array of wildlife. At home I have an English Cocker Spaniel, Rusty who fills my day with love and smiles. I also have a cat Zoe who loves to bring us rats and mice through the doggie door! My daughter is training to be a veterinary nurse!
I have always had a passion for animals and have wanted to work with them since I was little, however as I got older I was torn between working with kids and animals. After nannying for 6 years, and studying primary teaching for one year, I finally decided to pursue my dream in 2015, enrolling in my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and beginning my work placement at Inner South Vets. I have been working as a kennel hand and trainee vet nurse since the beginning of 2016 and I absolutely love it, I am looking forward to finishing my studies and becoming fully qualified Veterinary Nurse in 2017!
I joined the ISVC team in April 2016 after working in a rescue shelter predominately with native wildlife since 2012. I completed my certificate IV in Small Animal and Wildlife Veterinary Nursing in 2015. I then continued to study my certificate in Captive Animal at the Taronga Western Plains Zoo to expand my knowledge with exotics. I adore the weird, wonderful and wacky, happy to cater for all sorts of bizarre patients we may see. I am kept very busy at home with my own little menagerie including birds, snakes, lizards and plenty of frogs! I love the enthusiastic team at the Inner South Veterinary Centre and enjoy not only cats and dogs but also the fluffy, feathery, slimy and slithery patients we see.
I have always been passionate about animals and their wellbeing. I am forever taking strays in and doing my best to find their homes. I have been a foster carer for a bull arab rescue group for about a year now and always happy to help them. At home I own a Shih Tzu named Snuffie, a Bull Arab X named Dakota, and a beautiful little ragdoll named Blossom. I love my position at Inner South Veterinary Centre and can't wait to study to further my career.
