I’ve loved animals my whole life. I took any opportunity I could to play with dogs, curl up with cats or ride horses. Unfortunately, my parents weren’t quite as keen on getting a pet (any pet!) as me. So it was only natural that I dove headfirst into an animal-centric career: veterinary nursing.I graduated from UCD, Ireland’s top veterinary college, with a BSc. in Veterinary Nursing in 2013. I worked in a local small animal and exotics practice for a year, before, in 2014, moving to Saskatchewan, Canada, to work in a 24 hour emergency and referral practice. In 2015, I moved again to British Columbia where I soon found my dream job in Revelstoke Veterinary Clinic. After three years and many amazing experiences, I decided it was time to return home.Of course, I hadn’t spent the last four years exploring Canada solo. So I had to sort plane tickets back to Ireland for me, Bing (my dog) and Fred (my cat), where I've built a business as a locum veterinary nurse, lecturer, and practical facilitator. I’ve loved teaching students in the program I graduated from almost ten years ago.During the COVID-19 pandemic, I noticed that the demand for pet products and services was skyrocketing, and saw an opportunity to use my years of expertise to help all these exciting new businesses provide the best quality goods and services for their customers—and, more importantly, their customers’ pets.Things have been pretty hectic though. Around the same time I launched Pet Product Help, I also started an MSc. in Health Professional Education and added Gunther, a Belgian Malinois, to our family. He’s almost 18 months old and we’re hoping to get him competing in obedience, working trials and agility. We’re all having the best time learning, growing, and exploring the world of pets together!
Drop me a message if you're interested in working together, or just have any questions. I do my best to get back to all enquiries within 48 hours. Thanks!
