I am a Veterinarian from Nairobi, Kenya. I am currently working at RVHE as a Vet Nurse before I sit for the Vet board exams that will allow me to practice as a vet in Australia.
My aspirations and passions seem to have been predestined by my upbringing as both nature and nurture played a role in me becoming the animal and nature lover that I am today.
Through all my schooling I thought I would become a Veterinarian (even studying advanced subjects for entry to uni), but I felt that I would benefit from experience in the field prior to applying to uni. Straight out of Year 12 I took a voluntary position as a nurse to get a feel for the work. This turned into a paid position within a week, and after witnessing the often difficult positions Veterinarians are placed in, I decided my place in this industry is as a nurse.
I have an engineering degree but I found my passion in customer service and I have been working in the hospitality industry for over 10 years. Joining Ringwood Vet Emergency Customer Experience is a new venture in my customer service career and I have been enjoying it very much.
For as long as I can remember I have been a people person. I’ve always loved being in a position where I can help people and make them feel welcomed, valued and appreciated. Being in this job allows me to help clients through the good times and the bad… and seeing all the gorgeous fur babies is such a great bonus!
