I feel very lucky to be working at Curtis Street Vets @ Pimpama. After leaving school I completed my Certificate III in Animal Studies. I then worked at the Strawberry Farm because I wanted to work with animals. I had already started my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing before coming to this Veterinary Surgery, dreaming, one day, of becoming a Veterinary Nurse.
I was so glad to be chosen to work in this community. I have studied hard and listened to all the vets’ advice and I feel confident if you come into my surgery, with my help, you will attain the best outcome for you and your pet.
Soon to finish this Certificate, my next goal is to study a Diploma to know even more about the care of the pets that visit us.
At home I have Cockatoos, Guinea Pigs and my fur baby ‘Chicky’, a Jack Russell cross Pug, who keep me company. ‘Chicky’ often comes to assist me on my workdays. When you visit you may see her relaxing down the back. She also finds her way into the Facebook pages because she is so cute.
Don’t be surprised if I welcome you into Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery, for, time to time, I work over there with Dr John.
Certificate IV - Veterinary Nursing
My name is Darian and I am a fully qualified Veterinary Nurse (Cert IV). I have been working at Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery since 2015 and I also work at Curtis Street Vets @Pimpama.
I have a special interest in horses so you will often find me during our horse calls with Dr Melissa. When not out and about on horse calls, I also enjoy surgical nursing and patient monitoring.
In my spare time I ride and train horses my Arabian Warmbloods in Dressage & Show Halter locally and nationally.
Certificate IV - Veterinary Nursing
Hi. My name is Nikki. I have always had such love for animals ever since I could walk. Horses are my passion as I have owned and worked with them for quite some time. I first started riding at 4 years old and that’s when I knew I couldn’t live without them.
I hold a Cert III in Equine nursing and a Cert IV in Veterinary nursing. I have been nursing large and small animals for 10 years and I am so blessed to have this opportunity to share my love and experience with clients and these fur babies.
At home, I have a 13 year old Appaloosa Gelding, a 5 year old Bengal cat, 4 year old Ridgeback and a naughty 1 year old Cattle dog. So, please come down and say “Hello” as I love to chat and help as much as I can.
Hi. My name is Sasha. I have been working at Curtis Street Vets@Pimpama since the beginning of 2018. Every day, I feel so privileged to be doing something I love and being able to pursue
the love and compassion for animals is a dream come true.
On completing my certificate II in Animal Studies, I have furthered my education and am currently studying my certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing.
I am learning so much everyday working with such a dedicated and professional team. I am happy to help you in any way possible and take the upmost care of your little fur baby!
Hi. My name is Charlotte and I am currently studying my certificate IV in Vet nursing. I began working at Curtis Street Vets @ Pimpama recently to complete my workplacement for my certificate.
Everyday, I feel so lucky to be able to learn from such an amazing group of people in the clinic. I love meeting all of your pets and find each day extremely interesting.
I have loved animals from a young age. When I had my first horseriding lesson at 3 years old, I fell in love with horses. I did lessons up until I was 15 years old and loved every moment! In my spare time, you'll find me at home with my pets. I have a kelpie named Max, an English bull-terrier - Daisy, 11 guinea pigs, ducks, geese & chickens!
Hi, my name is Ashley. I am currently studying Veterinary Technology at the University of Queensland. I work at Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery and Curtis Street Vets@Pimpama during my University breaks.
I try my hardest to be helpful and to look after any of the animals that come into my care. I make sure they have clean beds to lie on and plenty of food and water if they need it (or none if they are not allowed them on this day).
I enjoy horseriding on my days off.
Hi, my name is Hannah. I have always had a love of animals every since I was a little girl. My dream has always been to become a veterinary nurse.
I began at Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery with Dr John while I was still at school. Now, I have almost completed my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing.
I have been working at both Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery and Curtis Street Vets @ Pimpama. I especially love learning new things and aspire to do my best for you and your beloved pet when you come into either of our clinics.
