Veterinary Nurse

Rebecca is originally from King Island, Tasmania. She grew up on a beef farm run by her parents. Rebecca always had animals ranging from horses to ducks to the odd baby kangaroo. She always enjoyed handling and treating the sick animals and knew from an early age that this was the path she needed to go down. Rebecca moved herself and her beloved horse Tycoon to Melbourne in 2008, she began working at a dressage facility in Macedon. From there her passion for the treatment of injured sick horses increased her urge to follow the Vet Nurse career. Rebecca finally started her nursing career in 2011 in a small animal reproduction clinic. Not a day goes by where Rebecca doesnt feel that she doesnt feel she has the most rewarding career.

Rhiannon Mortimer

Veterinary Nurse (Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing)

Rhiannon grew up in Sydney where she developed a passion for animals from a very young age. She has always been surrounded by her family and fur-babies. 

They all knew she would grow up to persue a career in the Veterinary Industry where she pretended to have 101 Dalamtions of her very own - plush of course!!

Rhiannon received her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2016 and moved to Melbourne a year later to broaden her experiences in the field and shes now been with us for nearly a year planning many, many more.

She thrives on being part of our incredible team here where she's continually learning and expanding her knowledge.
