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. She lives just down the road in Titirangi and appreciates not battling with traffic on the way to work.
Andrea lives with husband Keith and their two young sons, Marshall and Fletcher. The rest of the immediate family include Rusty the independent Tortishell cat and Brooke a pure breed Staffordshire Bull Terrier who is the nut case of the family.
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.
