Hi my name is Sarah,

I am a fully qualified veterinary nurse with over 10 years of experience. For the past 7 years I have been working at the Lort Smith Animal Hospital. Lort Smith is a very busy hospital and is the largest animal hospital in Australia. The last 3 years I've been one of five senior lead nurses responsible for around 96 nurses, about 40 student nurses and the day to day running of the hospital.

I’m looking at relocating to Adelaide as soon as possible.

I’m still very passionate about veterinary nursing and I'm fortunate enough to have worked in tiny computer-less veterinary clinics to a large emergency hospital using state of the art equipment like a CT scanner and being an anaesthetic nurse for a specialist surgeon.

This diversity in my veterinary background helps me feel confident in a diverse range of veterinary environments. I am easy going, hardworking, friendly and a reliable person.
