Certificate IV Veterinary Nurse
Ellie joined us in early 2020 and has rapidly established herself as an integral (and very popular) member of our hospital nursing team. She loves providing care for our in-patients (iincluding wildlife and exotics) and brings a wonderful calm presence to all her work.
Ellie started out with a strong interest in conservation before moving into veterinary nursing at a specialist referral centre in Adelaide. Whilst completing her nursing training, she also spent several years in a busy general practice before joining us at GAH.
Outside of work, Ellie and husband James live on acreage just out of Gawler and spend a fair bit of time and energy renovating their house. Ellie has a couple of horses of her own but also agists others on the property. She also keeps a few sheep and alpacas, to keep things interesting! To round out the family, there are two cats – Mumma and Oliver- and Gilbert, a lovely, lively Border Collie. Ellie’s interest in horses has extended to her enrolling in an equine sports massage course which keeps her busy in what little spare time she has! She and James also enjoy camping, bushwalking and everything related to the outdoors.
We feel very lucky to have Ellie as part of the GAH team!
