Rikki-lee Dess

Bachelor of Veterinary Technology & Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing

Nurse

Rikki-lee grew up on a farm in Dubbo and that’s where her love of animals started. After working in all different industries, Rikki-lee decided she needed to work with animals and started at Animal Emergency Services in Carrara as a Nursing Assistant in her last year of study.

Upon her graduation, Rikki-lee started working as a Nurse at the Underwood hospital and has never looked back. ‘I love working at AES because of the awesome team I get to work alongside and the patients that fill my heart when we help them get better.’

Rikki-lee has a 6-month-old kitten named Dimitri, who was found at 3-weeks-old and brought into AES for hand raising, and anĀ 8-month-old Rottweiler named Sadie, who Rikki-lee adopted from a vet clinic where she had been surrendered after sustaining a fracture to her hind leg.
