Senior Nurse - Certificate Four - Veterinary Nursing
Jodie is a senior veterinary nurse with 10 years experience. Jodie grew up in the western suburbs of Melbourne and had a love for animals from a very young age, her earliest memories are ones of her trying to put her cats to sleep in a baby doll cot and pushing her guinea pig around in a stroller. Over the years she had many interesting pets including dogs and cats, mice, fish, rats, a horse and even 3 goats!
As a teenager Jodie volunteered for the RSPCA and in 2010 at the age of 18, landed her first job in a local veterinary practice. She completed her certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing at Victoria University and went on to work in emergency and referral clinics where she has been able to further her knowledge and gain many skills. Jodie has now returned to general practice where she is able to help teach junior nurses and mentor them throughout their studies. She is always looking to learn new skills of her own and has a special interest in exotics and wildlife.
At home she lives with her partner Justin and there fur-baby Bella the Aussie Bulldog, newest addition, Ella a slinky little Cornish Rex along with Drake the free range mini Lop bunny and Buster a very talkative Rainbow Lorikeet. Jodie loves to travel, with many places still to visit but also enjoys curling up on the couch with her fury family.
