Kaitlyn first started at CareVets Porirua as a student in 2020 while studying her Certificate in Veterinary Nursing, then officially joined the team in May of 2021 as a reception/retail assistant. After gaining her Diploma in Veterinary Nursing through WelTec/Otago Polytechnic at the end of 2021, she is now a full time Junior Veterinary Nurse. From 5 years old and growing up with an obsession of watching Animal Planet and Steve Irwin documentaries, Kaitlyn knew she wanted to work with animals. When she’s not giving all the dogs treats when they visit the clinic, you’ll often find her talking about her own animals, Ruby the princess Cavoodle, Lily the cuddly Cavachon and Skyla the bossy British Blue.
