Hi everyone, I’m Katie and like all of us here, I have always had a passion for animals and their wellbeing. I graduated with a National certificate in Veterinary Nursing from the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic in 2009 and worked for a year as aVet Nurse. In 2011 I moved to Australie and used that as a base for a number of oversea’s backpacking trips.
In 2015 I decided to move back home to New Zealand and have been working at Bayfair and Papamoa Vets since June 2016.
Since working here I have adopted a puppy who was brought into the clinic as a stray. I was meant to only foster her for the weekend but fell totally in love and couldn’t part with her. I also have a one-eyed cat that wasn’t too happy about our new addition at the start, but I think she has forgiven me.
As well as working at both clinics, I run our Puppy Preschool classes in the evening’s. This is one of my favourite parts of my job. I get to spend time with puppies and am able to help guide people through the challenges that arise from raising a puppy.
I look forward to meeting you and your fur baby.
