Veterinary Nurse

Professional Interests

I find animal behaviour really interesting, as it is a means to better communicate with animals. I also have a fascination for necropsies and seeing how the body fits together and functions like lego.

Favourite animals

I adore miniature donkeys and orang-utans.

My animals

Kama’aina (Hawaiian for ‘Child of the Land’) is our Domestic Medium hair kitty. Kama’aina came in to work as a stray that no one claimed. I was bullied and brainwashed into taking her home for the ‘weekend’. She’s since refused to leave, so I guess she’s in my home to stay. I do have special feelings towards her, but not the kind that would ever make me forgive her for biting me on the face.


When not at work I enjoy watching movies, travelling, hoarding sale items and cake making.
