Trainee Vet Nurse


Abbey began working in hospitality and retail after completing high school but felt herself feeling unfulfilled, so she decided it was time for a career change.

It was her passion and love for animals that drove her to enroll in the Certificate III Veterinary Nursing course in October of 2020, with intention to go on to complete her Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing soon after. Abbey reached out to the Wallsend Vet Team with keen interest and was offered a position as a work experience student for the duration of her veterinary nursing course.

It was during her time with us a work experience student that her professional potential and positive attitude were recognized as highly exceeding any regular expectations, which is why we were delighted to offer her a traineeship in early 2021, a position that she accepted with great enthusiasm. Since joining our team Abbey has been mentored by our vets and nurses and is always willing to give anything a go. She adds harmony to the daily workflow with her cheerful and pleasant attitude, which always spreads to those around her.

When Abbey is not at work, she enjoys photography, anything crafty and gardening (she admits that not all of her plants survive, but she tries her best!). Most of all, Abbey enjoys making new memories with her loved ones and considers these memories her most valuable possessions.

Abbey owns a 4 year old Shar Pei cross called Ace, whom she admits may be slightly spoilt and of course, very loved.
