Certificate IV - Veterinary Nursing
My name is Darian and I am a fully qualified Veterinary Nurse (Cert IV). I have been working at Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery since 2015 and I also work at Curtis Street Vets @Pimpama.
I have a special interest in horses so you will often find me during our horse calls with Dr Melissa. When not out and about on horse calls, I also enjoy surgical nursing and patient monitoring.
In my spare time I ride and train horses my Arabian Warmbloods in Dressage & Show Halter locally and nationally.
I feel very lucky to be working at Curtis Street Vets @ Pimpama. After leaving school I completed my Certificate III in Animal Studies. I then worked at the Strawberry Farm because I wanted to work with animals. I am very happy to say that I am now qualified in Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. My next goal is to study a Diploma to know even more about the care of the pets that visit us.
I was so glad to be chosen to work in this community. I have studied hard and listened to all the vets’ advice and I feel confident if you come into my surgery, with my help, you will attain the best outcome for you and your pet.
At home I have Cockatoos, Guinea Pigs and my fur baby ‘Chicky’, a Jack Russell cross Pug, who keep me company. ‘Chicky’ often comes to assist me on my workdays. When you visit you may see her relaxing down the back. She also finds her way into the Facebook pages because she is so cute.
Don’t be surprised if I welcome you into Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery, for, time to time, I work over there with Dr John.
Hi, my name is Ashley. I am currently studying Veterinary Technology at the University of Queensland. I work at Jacobs Well Veterinary Surgery and Curtis Street Vets@Pimpama during my University breaks.
I try my hardest to be helpful and to look after any of the animals that come into my care. I make sure they have clean beds to lie on and plenty of food and water if they need it (or none if they are not allowed them on this day).
I enjoy horseriding on my days off.
