Animal Care Taker

As an Animal Attendant, I care for many of the cats in the cattery and assist the nursing staff. I have a Certificate II in Animal Care and am currently pursuing a Certificate III in Wildlife and Exhibited Animal Care with the goal of becoming a Zookeeper.

I enjoy working in the cattery; it's rewarding to care for the pets entrusted to us. Outside of work, I have diverse interests, including martial arts, competitive inline speed skating, and music. I have a black belt in American Kenpo, play multiple instruments, and participate in various bands and orchestras.

At home with my family, I have two dogs, a cat, and multiple birds, including lovebirds that I breed.


Client Relations (Clinic Cat)

Peppa is our very cheeky clinic cat. She joined our team in 2013 when she needed a home, and we couldn't say no. Peppa's favourite things include giving snuggles, daily zoomies through the clinic, basking in the sunlight of our clinic windows and trying to convince everyone that they should share their lunch with her.
