Hi there. My name is Janine and I am one of the new nurses who have started working here at Bayfair and Papamoa Vets.
I have recently emigrated from South Africa with my husband Jono, to make a new life here in New Zealand, starting our journey in Gisborne. We moved to the beautiful Tauranga in April this year and am absolutely loving it here!
I studied to become a vet nurse at an amazing university called Onderstepoort in South Africa. I worked as a nurse in South Africa for 5 years before making the big trip overseas.
I brought my beautiful whippet, Twill with me from South Africa, as well as Oliver and Gremlin who are my 2 black boy cats! True to my nursing nature, I fostered and couldn’t let my kitten, Finn, go either. So we added another kitty to my fur family.
I absolutely love being a Vet nurse, working with all your adorable animals and lovely clients, hope to see you all around soon.
