"Emergency is my passion. It is unpredictable, exciting and so rewarding. It's also great to work with such a great team."

Patrice is a member of the Veterinary Nurses Council of Australia (VNCA). Her spare time is spent looking after her young family, running and shopping. She has a Pomeranian 'Jake' who is 10 years old. He was a Hit By Car 9 years ago and the owners asked Patrice if she would adopt him as they couldn't care for him anymore.
