Vet Nurse


Laurie has always had a huge love for animals, even from a young age. This interest is what has lead her into the field of Veterinary Nursing.

She has gained over 21 years of nursing experience and even after all this time, she continues to have a passion for helping animals have the best life they possibly can. One of her favourite parts of Veterinary Nursing is listening to our clients talk about their pets and the many stories they have about them.

Shortly after completing her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing at Kurri TAFE, she began working at Greenhills Veterinary Hospital where she stayed for about 20 years. After gaining valuable knowledge in all aspects of veterinary nursing she continued on her journey to work at Wallsend Veterinary Hospital.

A few years ago she was offered the opportunity to become a TAFE teacher for the Certificate II in Animal Studies course and graciously accepted the offer. This has allowed her to pass on valuable knowledge in the field of Veterinary Nursing. She also occasionally teaches other Veterinary Nursing units whenever required. She has thoroughly enjoyed her experience teaching, coaching and mentoring young students who share the same passion for animals as she does.

In her spare time she assists with her husbands home electrical business, likes to spend time with her family and enjoys working out in their home gym to keep fit and healthy.

Her pets at home include Gracie the German Shepherd, Lloyd (pictured) the Cairn Terrier, Ljubo the Shih Tzu, Princess Aurora and Rosie the two cats and Magpie and Daisy the two guinea pigs.
