Practice Manager – Certificate IV – Veterinary Nursing

Hi, my name is Jen and I am a Cert IV Veterinary Nurse and have worked in the industry since 1994. Vet nursing is such a rewarding career, every day is different, and I always love coming to work. I enjoy continuing to learn and sharing my knowledge with the trainee nurses.

I have worked at Curtis Street Vets @ Pimpama and Jacobs Well Vet Surgery since December 2017 and enjoy working with the team here. I moved back to this area in December after spending the last 15 years in the country where I was the Practice Manager for my local vet clinic.

I could be described as a home-body as I enjoy quiet time at home with my family, but I also love to travel, anything from camping in a swag to 5 star resorts.

I have my cat Gingerbread at home so there are always lots of cuddles waiting for me.


Cert II (Animal Studies), BAgrBus, BVTech, Registered Veterinary Technician

Hello, I was born in Brisbane, but quickly moved with my parents (Dr John and Dr Christine) to Killarney. Growing up inside Killarney Veterinary Surgery and on the farm was a wonderful childhood. I was able to participate in the many activities of Veterinary Life, as well as enjoy the outdoor arena on the farm. I grew up with dogs, cats, chooks, cattle, horses and guinea pigs.

I have finished studying Agribusiness and Veterinary Technology at University of Queensland (Gatton Campus). I hope to study Veterinary Science in the future. You will meet me – assisting my Clients, Patients, Veterinarians and Veterinary Nurses now that I am working full-time. I especially enjoy meeting all your wonderful pets as you come into our Veterinary Surgeries.

I also participate in the background management assisting my parents.

In my free time, I enjoy taking the Golden Retrievers down to the beach so they can romp to their hearts content on the sand and through the water.


Hello, my name is Rhiannon and am currently studying 3rd year Bachelor of Veterinary Science at the University of Queensland.

I am enjoying working in clinic with the nurses and veterinarians and take every opportunity to learn more about your furry pets. You’ll find me in clinic on weekends and Uni holidays.

When not studying, I spend time with my two pups Cleo and Bruiser.


Certificate IV – Veterinary Nursing

I graduated with my Certificate IV Vet Nursing in 2019 and after a chance job   enquiry at the Jacobs Well Clinic, I began working at Curtis Street Vets in 2020.

I love working at CSV with a great team and caring for all the very special fur babies.  I am learning all the time and have found that I particularly enjoy nursing the patients that need ongoing care.

I also completed a Certificate II in Animal Studies in high school, knowing that my career would involve caring for animals.  During this time, I have welcomed many animals into our home through foster caring and pet sitting. I love seeing foster animals thrive and getting ready for their new homes.

At home I have a 14-year-old, Maltese named Buddy and a year ago, we adopted a 5-year-old Greyhound named Jessie.  There have been many other pets including another dog, cat, budgie, rats, and fish.  All are welcome.

When not at work, I love just being at home and spending time doing art and playing golf. 

I look forward to meeting you and your pet and helping you in whatever way I can and together with our team, attain the best care and outcome for you and your pet.


Hello, my name is Jill and I’m currently studying 5th year Bachelor of Veterinary Science at the University of Queensland.

I’ve always had a passion for animals, and I love learning about all areas of veterinary science especially small animal medicine. I’m very grateful for the opportunity to learn from Dr John Norris and work with the team at Curtis St Vets. You’ll usually find me working at the clinic on weekends and university holidays.

In my spare time I love going to the beach and also hanging out with my Labrador Sunny.


Hi all, my name is Lily, and I am one of the trainee vet nurses. I have been part of the team for a few years and will soon be finishing my certificate IV in nursing! I am very passionate for patient care and have been learning lots from our amazing nurses and veterinarians.

You will find me working closely with Dr Terry and snuggling your fur children when they visit us in hospital.

When not working I spent time adding to my collection of tattoos and loving my six cats!
