I have always loved the idea of working with animals and have always craved to work with domestic animals and help them as well as try to understand their everyday habits as well as take care of my own animals when they are sick. When I was young, I grew up in Petrie and there were always sick animals around and I always wanted to help them. So as I grew older, my career path took me to the skies where I am currently a flight attendant however still craved to work with animals so after my son was born, I decided to do some-thing about it.
Elisha has a Certificate 3 veterinary nurse with over 5 years’ experience working within the veterinary industry.
Before I enrolled into Certificate 3 in veterinary nursing, I signed up as a volunteer at RSPCA Wacol in the desex clinic where all the isolation, de-sexing and surgeries are performed. This was an eye opener as you are involved in helping with preparing animals for de-sexing as well as watching in surgeries and learning the basic skills needed to prepare you. After volunteering for a few weeks, I found that I could handle the ins and outs of a veterinary practice and enrolled in my Certificate 3 at TAFE and now on the path to completing my certificate 4 in veterinary nursing.
Working at animal wellness is a huge advantage as there is natural medicine as well as Chinese medicine.
