Claire Veterinary Nurse

My love for animals began early as we had many pets in our family and I was always happy when I was around them, so becoming a Veterinary Nurse seemed a fitting career choice.

I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse after 3 years training in the UK in 1992 and I have worked with every animal from lizards to tigers. My husband and I came to Canada in 2006 and worked at the Greater Vancouver Zoo for 5 years, then joined the Whatcom team in 2014.

Other qualifications-
Basic certificate in Herpetology
Advanced certificate in Herpetology
Teaching certificate
Zoological nutrition
Certificate in customer service

I am also a qualified yoga teacher.
We have a Rotti called Violet and a Catahoula called Gunner and 7 wonderful cats.
I enjoy running with my crazy catahoula.
