Vet Nurse Monique

Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing

I have been nursing since I completed my vet nursing qualification in 2007! I worked as a kennel hand even before that, all through high school.

I spent nine years working in various general practice clinics around Perth, including primary care at The Animal Hospital, starting in 2012. I then discovered a love for emergency and critical care nursing. I have worked as an ECC nurse for TAHMU since 2016, and I am now moving into casual work while I study Psychology.

I have always found caring for exotic and pocket pets to be a particularly fun, intriguing, and challenging part of ECC work over the years, and an area I am very keen to learn more about. I have always greatly respected the UPV team, and I’m always amazed at the work you all do.

I am excited to have the opportunity to learn more about it, and I can’t wait to get started.

Hobbies and Interest

Swimming! I love road trips although I mostly road trip to find new swimming spots. I love kayaking it is probably my favourite hobby, if I’m not at work I will usually be on the river somewhere (unless it’s cold, I’m not about that). 

Owned Pets

I currently do not have any pets of my own (although I am on the hunt for a Pomeranian, don’t judge), so I very much still need my animal fix.
