I was brought up on a huge poultry farm in Eastern Gippsland Victoria. I have had animals ever since I can remember, from fostering baby lambs to finding injured animals on the side of the road, (such as wombats and baby joeys who’s mums were killed in car accidents). My favourite pastimes are riding horses and breeding – also showing - my Pugs and French Bulldogs.
On Mondays and Thursdays you will find me working along side Dr John and Dr Melissa at Curtis Street Vets @ Pimpama. I am an early riser and have already fed my horses and my myriad of dogs at home before arriving fresh to start the day.
On the weekends I am showing my heavy horses – ‘Wattle’ and ‘Truffle’. You may have seen them, on Facebook, winning supreme champion Drum horse and reserve champion Drum Horse at the Gatton Heavy Horse Show and Field Days in May 2017.
Hello my name is Terri. I have grown up at Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery, working alongside Dr John and commencing my Nursing career when I was 14 years old. I have graduated with an Animal Attendant Certificate II. Then immediately started my Veterinary Nursing Certificate IV. Graduation is my highlight.
I love working at both Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery and Curtis Street Vets @ Pimpama, so may see you at either clinic. I am always looking forward to meeting you and your pet(s) and to solving any problem (answering any question) in conjunction with all our veterinarians.
I have always had a love for animals and own both the large and small animals. I currently enjoy training my ‘fur babies’ (dogs) and relaxing, taking them to the beach, to enjoy life.
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.
I began my Veterinary Receptionist Career at Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery about six years ago and during that time have broadened my knowledge of animals vastly.
I love coming to work and meeting all the beautiful animals, and their carers, who come through the practice doors.
Animals have been a passion since very young. My leisure time is mostly taken up by Dog Sports e.g. Agility, Dock Diving and Noseworks. I also attend seminars and workshops where topics vary from Animal Behaviour to Dog Obedience. At our local dog club I have taught Basic Dog Obedience for the last 5 years.
Should you have any queries regarding your pet’s worming or vaccinations requirements please feel free to come in and talk to me. I am always happy to plan your pet’s needs with you.
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.
Hello, I have been working at Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery since 2015.
I decided this year that I will start my training for a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. I am looking forward to learning during my course.
I especially enjoy grooming and will help your pets when they come to visit us next. Please don’t hesitate to ask me any questions. I also like to go out on House Calls with the Vets (e.g. Dr John). So you may see me there. But, often I am in the back room assisting to keep your pets safe when they are having their anaesthetics.
In my spare time I ride and train horses and compete nationally with my Arabians and dressage horses.
