Veterinarian – MVB (Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine) MANZCVS (Small Animal Surgery) University College of Dublin, Ireland, Accredited Standard Mental Health First Aider
Jenny joined the Gawler Animal Hospital team in October 2018 and brought with her a wealth of experience and passion for the veterinary industry.
Jenny graduated in 2008 from University College Dublin, Ireland. Jenny spent over a decade working in busy mixed practice in regional South Australia and Victoria before deciding to move to Gawler, closer to her husband Nigel’s family.
Jenny is a firm believer that the more you know, the more you need to learn. As a result, she loves to engage in continuing education so she can provide more to her patients and clients. Jenny holds particular interests in small animal surgery (soft tissue and orthopaedic), small animal medicine, dentistry and imaging. In 2022, Jenny obtained her membership of the ANZCVS in Small Animal Surgery by examination.
In addition to the clinical aspects of Jenny’s work, she is also an advocate for wellbeing within the veterinary profession. She is an accredited standard mental health
first aider and founding member of our very own Gawler Animal Hospital Wellbeing team.
Outside of work, Jenny loves to ‘do mum stuff’ with her three gorgeous girls. She also enjoys helping her winemaker husband Nigel with their boutique wine brand ‘Shrieking Witch Wines’ and learning the tricks of the trade. Joey the miniature schnauzer and Bingo, Rosie. Willow and Ahsoka Tano, the chickens complete the very noisy Nesci household. Nigel and Jenny both grew up in families with a strong connection to the land and continue to nurture this in their daughters with family activities.
We are so very Lucky to have Jen!
