I have always been very passionate about animals and welfare. After working in several vet clinics, I began nursing at a welfare clinic, where I discovered that my true passion was in helping not just the animals, but their human families as well.
In addition to vet nursing, I am on the committee for Arctic Rescue Victoria, who rescue and re-home Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskies and other Arctic breeds. I often have a foster dog at home, in addition to my 4 beautiful rescue Huskies, who were all foster fails.
I am also a wildlife rescuer and carer, and regularly have little furry critters in my care before they are well enough to be released.
The Pets in the Park program is also a passion of mine and I have been involved with them for a number of years. PITP offers veterinary care and assistance to our homeless community and their fur babies.
