Rachel graduated as a qualified Veterinary Nurse from NMIT in Wallaceville Campus in 2001. Since then she has worked in small animal practice in New Zealand and Australia, where she gained experience working with Orthopaedic specialists and dealt with the import and export of companion animals.
Rachel first started working at CareVets Johnsonville in 2010 before leaving to live in Brisbane, Australia, with her family. She returned to Wellington in August 2016 and took up the position of Practice Manager. Although she has taken on a managerial role, Rachel still enjoys getting her hands dirty and has a special interest in companion animal dentistry and nutrition. Rachel also particularly enjoys interacting with our clients and their pets and is always on standby to help make everyone’s Care Vets experience an enjoyable one.
When not at work, Rachel loves nothing better than spending time at the beach with her two children, horse riding, or going away for the weekend and pitching her tent.
