Kia Ora, I’m Jaime and I have recently moved to the gold coast from New Zealand and am very excited to start my Australian adventure. I knew from a young age I wanted to work with animals, making vet nursing perfect for me so I went on to graduate in 2019 with a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing.
Back in NZ I have 2 rescue fur babies, a Staffy x Lab called Stanley-Jones and a fluffy tabby named Clyde.
I am looking forward to get to know and care for you and your fur babies.
In my spare time I enjoy socialising with friends and family, nature walks, spending time at the beach and exploring my new home.
