Kerrie has an interesting and diverse career path. From working as a veterinary nurse after graduating from high school, she diverged to office administration and book keeping. But her preference for veterinary nursing saw her returning to the veterinary industry. When she joined Box Hill Veterinary Hospital in 2004 Kerrie brought with her more than 8 years of nursing experience. A highly valued member of the team, Kerrie loves the contact with patients and their families whilst they are visiting our clinic. She also enjoys the challenge of being accomplished in surgical and clinical work in addition to a wide range of administrative work. Her animal family consists of a Bourkes parrot called Penny, and a cat called Lola. Outside of work, Kerrie enjoys outdoor activities.
When Kristy joined Box Hill Veterinary Hospital in 2010 she already had 10 years of veterinary nursing experience. She undertook studies for her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing whilst working full time, and gained her qualification in 2014. Kristy’s previous work experience in the retail industry is perhaps the reason why she relates so well with the clients. She takes time to answer the clients’ queries re their pets, and is truly dedicated to looking after the patients. Asked why she liked working at the clinic, Kristy lists the supportive working environment, the clients, and the diversity of work in reception, surgery and general nursing as important factors. Outside of work, Kristy enjoys caring for Ruby, her Red Heeler; and supporting Hawthorn Football Club.
