Hayley began her career with animals at the young age of 12 in a kennel hand and hydrobathing job at her local general practice back in 1998. ¬†She obtained her certificates in Veterinary Nursing before completing a degree majoring in Veterinary Technology at the University of QLD. ¬†Hayley spent 12 years in general practice before moving onto the University of QLD’s Western Animal Emergency Centre. ¬†It was there she discovered her passion for emergency and critical care! ¬†In 2011 she was offered a position at the¬†Animal Emergency Service and she has never looked back.
Hayley spends the majority of her time in our dedicated Pet ICU where she helps treat the most critical of patients. ¬†She loves nothing more than providing a high standard of minute-to-minute intensive care to furry family members, working hard through the night with the rest of the amazing team to help get them back home to their loving families. ¬†Hayley has a strong interest in continuing education and lifelong learning and helps to facilitate CPD programs internally and externally.
Whether it be a fast-paced theatre or a difficult mechanical ventilation case, Hayley loves a challenge, and¬†there is no other job she would rather be doing. ¬†She feels she¬†was put on this earth to help animals.¬† When Hayley is not buzzing around the¬†clinic she likes to¬†spend her down time with her husband, young son and their three rescue pets: Chook the sweetest Border Collie cross, Mr Kitty aka Boss Cat and Vada Sultenpuss the sassy (fat) cat.
