All going to plan she will complete her studies and become a fully qualified veterinary nurse by the end of 2020. During her studies she chose to complete her work placement hours at VetEnt Leeston and from there she has become an inaugural part of the team as a casual worker, helping out whenever needed and required. She is interested in the diagnostics aspects of the industry and one of her favourite things about her job is caring for the patients whilst they are in clinic. As well as making them as comfortable as possible during their stay which can sometimes be a stressful time for them. She also loves seeing the joy the animals and owners share when they are reunited with each other Outside of work she has one very cuddle rescue cat named Clyde who she adores and cannot wait to expand her fubaby family in the future.

Joanne Thorpe
Technician
Born and breed on a sheep and beef property in North Canterbury, then finishing school on a sheep property in Mid Canterbury. I was always destined for work in the agricultural sector, after school I went down south with a team of dogs, mustering for two years before flying to Western Australia and working on a cattle station, then into a gold mine as a geology technician. Bringing home my husband Rob, we had Brady now 18 and Bonnie, 16. Furthering my education, I completed my national certificates in Agri Business Management while working on a sheep and beef property just out of Methven. I secured casual work with VetEnt Riverside (Ashburton) in 2012 and 2013, helping on an animal trial, debudding calves and TB testing. I followed this with permanent work on a dairy farm to broaden my knowledge, learning about treating lane cows, reproduction in diary, rearing calves to heifers and also being involved with flushing cows and embryo implants. The last two winters I have worked causally teat sealing heifers, I am looking forward to this new step in my career working permanently for VetEnt.
Qualifications: National Certificate in AgriBusiness Management, National Certificate in TB

Jordan Young
Vet Nurse
Jordan is original from Scotland and is a registered veterinary nurse, she mainly works with cats and dogs and the odd horse. Herself and her partner have always wanted to visit New Zealand, ‘the dairy country’, and when a position become available at our Ashburton clinic they thought why not. She has been qualified for five years and has worked at Glasgow University equine department and various private small animal practices. One thing she thoroughly enjoys about her job, apart from the variety, is having hospitalised patients who depend on the hard work and dedication of the vet care team to make them better. She also loves a cuddle from a puppy or kitten every now and then. She owns five horses, two dogs and two cats and is a keen showjumper and has competed since she was young, she also likes trekking with her dog. Outside of work she is loving exploring New Zealand and meeting new people.
