MEET THE NURSES
Our caring veterinary nurses in Cranbourne are here to assist you and your pets in any way.
Zoe – Cert IV Qualified Veterinary Nurse
I have been working at Casey and Cranbourne Vets since August 2015.
I grew up on a 10 acre property so I have had the greatest opportunity to own a wide range of different animals over the years including sheep, goats, cows, ponies, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs.
Now in suburbia I have my two Labradors ‘Max’ and ‘Duke’ and my two Ginger Tabby’s ‘Hunter’ and ‘Magic’.
I enjoy Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Taekwondo with the latter I am a black belt.
I also love to read and spend time with family and friends in my spare time.
Simone – Cert IV Veterinary Nurse
I have been at Casey and Cranbourne Veterinary Hospital since July 2015. I recently completed my Certificate IV veterinary nursing with full competency and look forward to my official graduation in December 2015. I have also completed a Certificate II in Animal Studies and a Certificate II in Equine industry; both were done in conjunction with my VCE study in 2011 and 2012. I am also looking to complete my Microchip Implanter course as well as Canine Behaviour Training course.
I have been appointed to run Puppy Pre School at the clinic and I can’t wait to meet all of the puppies and give the owners as much help as I can to make the transition of introducing a new puppy to the family as smooth as possible. I am also responsible for the clinics Facebook and Instagram pages’ with the intention of making us more interactive with clients via social media. I have a passion for animals but nothing captivates my attention like the stunning wildlife in South Africa and I hope to one day be lucky enough to volunteer in a wildlife preservation sanctuary. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, Snowball my cheeky Cockatiel, Gypsy my beautiful Standardbred Gypsy and Jess my Mums’ thoroughbred.
Laura - Qualified Vet Nurse
After realising becoming a vet would involve far too much maths, I completed my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing, became a qualified microchip implanter, and recently graduated from Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. I’ve since set my sights on Australian natives and am currently studying Wildlife Husbandry and Rehabilitation through Victoria University, as well as volunteering for Wildlife Victoria.
I’ve worked at Casey and Cranbourne Veterinary Hospital since 2008 and run our ‘Slim Fit’ Obesity Program. One of my greatest joys is hand-raising and fostering orphaned kittens, which has earned me the title of ‘crazy cat lady’.
I have three cats and two dogs who live with my parents, and another cat who lives with my partner and me. I soon hope to acquire my Diploma in Emergency and Critical care nursing and to specialise in Australian wildlife.
Jessica - Cert IV Qualified Veterinary Nurse
My name is Jess, and I’ve been at Casey and Cranbourne Veterinary Hospital since November 2013. I’ve just completed my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and am very much enjoying meeting all the animals who come in to visit. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family, friends, and my two pugs, Archie and Miley.
Natalie - Cert IV Qualified Veterinary Nurse
Hi, I’m Natalie and I have been nursing since 2014 and will complete my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing at the end of 2015. I have always wanted to be a Veterinary Nurse and after 10 years in Marketing I am finally living my dream and enjoying every minute of it. I love meeting and assisting all of our wonderful clients and especially love pats and cuddles with all of the patients who walk through our door. At home, I have Levi the Staffy, Pepa the Douge de Bordeaux, Blossom the Devon Rex, Monty the Turtle, 5 Chickens, 1 Rooster and I also have two children. When I am not at work, I enjoy bike riding, walking on the beach and spending time with my family and furbabies.
