Certificate IV Veterinary Nursing, Bachelor of Science (BSc), TAE Assessor Skillset

Tiana has always loved the feathered and scaled pets since she was young, so naturally pursued a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing with wildlife creatures. Tiana completed all of her clinical placement hours at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, then moved into a private avian and exotic practice. She worked up from a junior nurse through to a Senior Nurse, whilst starting a Bachelor of Science degree at university. Towards the end of her degree, Tiana made the switch to Emergency and Critical Care nursing at a large specialty hospital, allowing her to hone into her triage and practical skills across a range of species. Tiana also works as a Scientist in a veterinary laboratory alongside her casual nursing role at UPV Sunshine Coast, which allows her to help animals in many different ways!

Tiana has also had the pleasure of presenting (as a speaker and poster exhibitor) and participating in several avian and exotic conferences across Australia.

Hobbies and Interests

Outside of work, Tian enjoy’s camping, reading by the beach, making art, gardening and listening to true crime and disease focussed podcasts.

Owned Pets

Tiana is a proud pet parent to a gentle old soul Beagle named Bobby, a craft kitty named Kenny and a teeny pygmy bearded dragon called Norbert.
