  • Renae
    Senior Veterinary Nurse

    Renae has been a nurse here at Cessnock Vets for 10 long hard years! She came to the practice fresh from finishing her TAFE course in Certificate IV Veterinary Nursing.

    Over the years Renae has been a valued member of staff both for her technical knowledge and practical skills. Some days she even gives the vets a run for their money when it comes to tricky mathematical equations for dose rates etc!

    After so many years, Renae still has a great passion for this industry. She is always striving to better her skills to provide the highest level of care to her patients.

    These days Renae is in charge of training and providing guidance to our junior nurses and work experience students as well as her regular nursing duties.

    Cessnock Veterinary Hospital wouldn't function at the high level it does without this wonderful lady at the helm of our nursing team!
