Emma – Vet Nurse

Emma grew up in coast town of Newcastle and moved to Sydney after high-school to follow her interest in animals and study a Bachelor of Science at the University of Sydney. Emma soon realised that she wanted a more hands on career with animals so decided to move over to Veterinary Nursing. Not long after Emma joined the Love That Pet Team after finishing her placement and knows she has found her calling. Emma PNG

What do you love most about your job?

I love learning about the unique personalities that come through the clinic, and how rewarding it is to help a pet bounce back from illness or injury.

Do you have any pets of your own?

I have Jamie, a dopey German Shepherd who gets into mischief back home in Newcastle.

When you’re not working with animals, what are you doing?

Reading at home or catching a film, gig  or play when I can.

What’s your favourite spot in Sydney?

The Royal Botanic Gardens, or anywhere I can relax in an open park with harbour views.

One interesting fact about you that people probably don’t know?

I enjoy giving myself challenges, so I am usually training for some kind of running event or obstacle course.
