Introduction

Veterinarian with 20 years experience. Feline Specialist. Seeking casual jobs in the veterinary or related industries. Qualifications include BSc BVMS PhD FANSCVc (Feline Medicine). I have excellent communication and written skills that are wide and varied. Fun, hard-working and dedicated. I am searching for short term work evenings, nights or weekends. I am certainly not over-qualified for any position and I am enjoying a new phase in my career. Work in the music or related industries, customer service (face to face) and animal care are of great interest.
