I'm a South African nurse who qualified in 2012 at the University of Pretoria. I have always had the passion to work with animals and medicine and so I'm fulfilling my dream everyday.
Before studying for her Certificate in Veterinary Nursing, Rebecca was a qualified chef for 5 years but decided she wasn't fulfilled enough in her career and didn't want to spend her life in a job that she didn't love. She has always wanted to work with animals and vet nursing has become a career she is extremely passionate about and loving.
Rebecca is most excited for her career with Pet Doctors Howick, especially having the chance to learn and gather knowledge from such a supportive team. Rebecca has two cats; Ebola (blame her stepdad for the name!) and Niko who's as spoilt as anything. In her free time, she enjoys DIY restoration projects such as old chairs & tables, and going for long walks.
