Maya, Remote work (posted 12th April) Manager / Rehab Therapist

I'm a fully qualified veterinarian in South America and have been working in Australia for over 8 years as a GP vet nurse, internal medicine nurse, emergency nurse and most recently as a rehabilitation therapist. I have also managed a behaviour centre for over 3 years (finances, customer care, bookings, admin)

Claudia Wills, Melbourne, Victoria, Bentleigh East (posted 7th April) Trainee Vet Nurse

Finishing Animal Studies Cert 3 this July.
I did my placement in NSW at a boarding kennel for four months and then I got hired by the company and worked there for another 6months till I had to move interstate.
I have owned many exotic pets in my life growing up and currently own 2 dogs, a great Dane X American bulldog and an Aussie bulldog. 
I have done a lot of pet sitting, pet walking and pet grooming.

I want to further my studies into Vet Nursing. Clinical experience is where I feel I need to be right now. Providing owners with proper care techniques and health advice for their pets is something I feel strongly about. I have worked alongside my dad who is a dog trainer and gotten to know a lot about dog behaviour. This has helped me massively when dealing with challenging dogs. I dream of working with equestrians, but I have a lot of knowledge to gain and work and experience to gain before I get there. 

I am a fast learner and a hard worker. I definitely bring a smile to the room and believe I would make a good addition to a clinic.
I can work Mondays, Wednesdays - school hours, and the weekend and school holidays- anytime. 

Happy to get my hands dirty!
