Veterinary Nurse, Norway
AniCura Kongsvinger Clinic
Why I work with animals? I’ve loved taking care of animals since I
was a little girl.
The best thing at work last week: I work with a great group of people, so we make everyday fun.
Funniest/most strange meeting with an animal: We did a fracture repair on a young wallaby at my previous work. Since he was so young he had to be kept in a pouch/backpack post-op and the staff took turns carrying this little wallaby on their bellies just like the mom would have done.
My first animal or animal encounter: The first one I remember was a Dachshund named Zorro.
My pets: Two cats, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash, and a German Shorthaired Pointer named Svea.
What was most challenging at work during the week? Time!
Favorite area within animal care: Laboratory and emergency care.
Latest journey: Phoenix, Arizona in the US (my old hometown). I lived and worked in Phoenix for 10 years. I went to USA to work as an au pair but stayed and did my training to veterinary nurse
