Kate has loved animals for as long as she can remember. Growing up in Gippsland she was always surrounded by animals big and small and she always knew she wanted to work with animals when she got older. Following secondary college Kate pursued her passion for animals and continued on to study and complete a bachelor of science majoring in Zoology and Genetics where she was most interested in animal ecology and evolution. In 2016 Kate started her dream job as a veterinary nurse and went on to complete her Certificate IV in Vet Nursing. Since becoming a vet nurse Kate has developed a special interest in behaviour and fear free handling and strives to make every patient’s visit to the vet as positive and stress free as possible. In her spare time Kate enjoys playing guitar, gardening and going for nature walks.
