I grew up in a multi cat household eventhough my dad is very allergic. My mom made it very clear you can have me with cats or not at all.
We also had pet bunnies, hamsters and goldfish.
I was 17 years old when in school we had to talk to our guidance counselor about our future. I had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do. I went home one Wednesday after school and did what anyone would do, fill out one of those online job indicator questionnaires. Later that day I called my mom at work telling her I wanted to be a veterinary nurse.
I graduated in Belgium with a Bachelor degree in agriculture and biotechnology in 2010. I pursued my career by moving to London, where I became a qualified and registered veterinary nurse with the Royal College of Veterinary Science.
Throughout my 13 year nursing career I’ve always said my dream job would be a cat only clinic. When I saw the job advertised earlier this year I jumped at the opportunity and here I am.
Unfortunately I do not own any pets of my own, yet! So I treat every cat that walks through the door like my own fur baby. I want them to be as happy and as comfortable as they can be at all times. Fortunately I do have my sister that lives here. She has two gorgeous felines, Roger and Margeaux, who I treat as my own and have been long time fans of The Cat Clinic. The rest of my family lives on the other side of the world and I miss them dearly.
I am a keen traveller and try and be out and about as much as possible. I try and make everyday count and fill my life with new experiences.
