Her significant other is Jasper the cat who thinks he is part human.  Her all-time favourite animal is a Cheetah, and while we don’t get to see these at EAMC I’m sure some of our feline patients are quite reminiscent! Bec loves all the birds we get to see here at EAMC and is also a cat lover. Her most rewarding part of the job is caring for patients through surgery and seeing them go home at the end of the day. In her spare time she loves to get lost a good fantasy book.

Veterinary Nursing Students

At EAMC we have a number of Certificate IV Veterinary Nursing students doing work placement with us as part of their TAFE training. They are valued members of our team and do a lot of work behind the scenes keeping the hospital clean and our hospital patients comfortable.  We enjoy mentoring our students as they follow their dream of a career in animal care.

Thank you to our current students for all your hard work.
