Hi, I’m Jess! I’m one of the newest team members here at Ourvets Halswell having transferred in February from a locum position at other Ourvets branches. I have been vet nursing since 2005 when I graduated from Christchurch Polytech with Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. During the course of my career, I have worked mostly in general small animal clinics but have also worked in an after hours emergency clinic where my passion for vet nursing really grew. I love all aspects of vet nursing but have a keen interest in surgery and critical care.
I have three young boys aged 4-8 who keep me on my toes and one fur baby, a snooty torti cat named Hillary (aka Moose) who lives with my partner in Auckland. In my spare time, I like to dabble in a bit of knitting or crochet. I also love the outdoors, road trips and day hikes and am a bit of a Facebook addict. I look forward to meeting you at the clinic!
