Andrea started working at Auckland Veterinary Services in March 2004, she qualified for the Certificate in Veterinary Nursing in 2000, and has worked in a few other practices before settling at AVS.
Andrea lives with husband Keith and their 3 boys, Marshall, Fletcher and Cameron. The rest of the immediate family include Rusty the independent Tortoiseshell cat.
There have been a few foster pets over the years also which included kittens, dogs, a baby hedgehog and several ducklings.
Andrea is a great veterinary nurse who is especially compassionate when animals are in pain or neglected. Andrea also looks after the weight management clinic, which helps clients achieve a healthy weight for their pets.
Her hobbies outside of work include Jump fit, crafts and reading in the sun before having a nice afternoon nap.
Andrea’s best pet tip: For a bit of environmental enrichment for dogs throw a handful of doggy biscuits over the lawn so they have to forage for their food.
