I have 2 years' worth of unpaid work in Forestville Vet Hospital from 2018-2019, working on a weekly basis as part of my placement for my course. I have also completed Certificates II and III in Animal Studies prior to attaining my Cert IV, and have a position as Volunteer at Taronga Zoo Sydney.

I have many years experience in cash handling and customer service, having been in several retail positions previously, and having to interact with dozens of people each day I volunteer at Taronga Zoo.

I'm a quick learner when I'm involved in anything that requires hands-on interaction; I'm very compassionate and empathetic towards others, as well as very calm and understanding whenever a difficult situation arises, such as a client that may be belligerent or 'pushy'. However, I can also be firm and directing when it's required of me, as I understand that being a vet nurse can be demanding some days.
