Cert II Animal Studies   Cert II Retail Pharmacy

Receptionist

Leah was a Pharmacy Assistant previously but her true passion has always been with animals as she grew up on a small farm. After working in retail and hospital pharmacies for 4 years, Leah decided to transition to the veterinary industry. This commenced by doing voluntary work on her days off. She eventually secured a job at a vet clinic as “The hydrobath girl” cleaning dogs and cutting their nails.While working at the General Practice, Leah commenced a Certificate I in veterinary nursing and after moving to Brisbane, completed the Certificate II in vet nursing with Sue Crampton. Leah then started a family and became a “stay at home Mum” for almost 7 years before commencing with Animal Emergency Service late 2015.“I love customer service and pet care. It’s so satisfying to receive a thank you from clients who arrive concerned about their pets to realise they are in great hands. It’s a joy to see pets after their treatment and hear the amazing stories that got them to us as well as how well they’ve recovered over the couple of days they are with us. I love it when clients come back to show us how well their little one is after such a huge event. My goal is to eventual finish my Certificate V which has been my goal since before I had kids.”Leah is passionate about her jobs and loves every aspect of working at Animal Emergency Service. “I’m so lucky to be able to work in a place that i love coming to and being able to do my part to help a pet and their owner. AES care very much for both pets and owners but also for their employees which is amazing to me. It’s great to be able to have the support and know there’s always someone there to talk to. I love how professional AES is. It’s unlike any other clinic I’ve worked in having almost every diagnostic equipment available for pets without having to wait for third party results.” In her spare time, Leah enjoys time with her three beautiful kids, spending time with friends, going to the beach and park. She has two gorgeous Burmese boys from the same parents just different litters. Kovu is chocolate and is a very chilled out, petite little man. Neeko is lilac and is a bit of a mummy’s boy. “They’re both much loved by the kids and certainly make our home.”
