Mikaela qualified at the end of 2021 with a New Zealand Diploma in Veterinary Nursing through Otago and WelTec Polytechnic, joining the CareVets Johnsonville team in October of the same year.

Mikaela loves interacting with clients and helping them to provide the best possible care for their much loved pets. She has a particular interest in monitoring anaesthesia and assisting with surgical procedures, emergency medicine and procedures, and diagnostic testing. She is particularly interested about learning more about interpretation of test results and how to care for her patients based on these findings.

Mikaela does not have any pets of her own but does have the company of three cats who live with her. When not at work, Mikaela loves spending time with family and friends, exploring the Wellington region, going on walks/hikes and spending time at the beach.
