Hello :)

I am currently studying Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and looking for a paid job or volunteer work at a vet and am also open to work in any place that I could be involved with caring for animals within Hervey Bay. I am happy with anything as I would really just love the opportunity to pursue my dream career. I am very passionate about caring for animals and have grown up always owning all types of animals. I have previously been a volunteer animal ambulance assistant with the RSPCA which required me to assist with animal rescues, handling and identifying domestic animals and wildlife, completing relevant paperwork for hospitalised animals, as well as making phone calls to the public.

My name is Brook Kennedy and I am a passionate, hard-working and determined 23 year old.

I am currently studying Cert IV in Veterinary nursing through open collages, throughout this course I do need to complete 140 hours or work placement. Ideally I would love the opportunity to obtain a trainee ship as a vet nurse or animal attendant so I can continue gaining hands on experience after completing my 140 hours or work placement.

I previously have worked for the RSPCA QLD as an animal attendant. I simply loved this job and everything involved in it. A lot of people think that working with animals is a fun cuddly job but I know everything there is to know about it on the good and not so good side. Working at the RSPCA I gained a lot of skills including cleaning of pens, caring for animals, administering medication and vaccinations, general medical check ups, and also the not so favorable but doable job of Euthanasia. 

As I just moved to Melbourne with my husband I have no social life so am available for immediate start of work. I am available 8am-6pm 7 days a week.
