Certificate IV Veterinary Nurse
Nikki is the new kid on the block here at Gawler Animal Hospital, joining the team at the start of 2018. Nikki comes as a fully qualified veterinary nurse with 4 years experience in the industry. She is a keen learner and aims to better herself as a nurse every single day. Out in the hospital, Nikki especially enjoys monitoring anaesthetics, performing dental cleans and monitoring critical patients such as snake bite victims (she is not scared of a challenge). Nikki also enjoys interacting with pets and their people and believes that caring for the owner is just as important as caring for the patient.
At home Nikki has Ruby the chocolate Labrador and Nugget the budgie who she rescued after being hit by a car. Nikki believes the Labrador is her ‘spirit animal’ as she too has a happy and bouncy personality and shares the Labrador’s love for food.
On weekends Nikki likes going to her family’s shack on the Yorke Peninsula where she enjoys fishing, boating and motor bike riding or going camping and exploring new places. Nikki is happiest when she is surrounded by loved ones, enjoying beautiful weather and eating delicious food.
