Veterinary Nurse (Cert II)
Animals (dogs and horses in particular) have always been a major interest of Olivia's. She can't imagine ever living without a furry four-legged companion!
Olivia initially aimed to become a professional ballet dancer from a young age, and spent 2 years in Belgium training at an elite school. However she sustained some injuries that began to impact significantly on her performance, and so decided to get more serious about her love of animals.
Olivia returned to Sydney late last year, and contacted Beecroft Vet to begin work placement to support her studies…and now here she is!
Olivia is currently working towards her Certificate IV in Vet Nursing, and is super excited to be caring for local animals as part of the Beecroft Vet team!
