Tahlia is our head nurse at Caring Vets. Tahlia’s job is to oversee how the clinic is running and make sure all patients, staff and clients are all taken care of and everything is running smoothly.
Tahlia was drawn into this profession from a young age. She had always wanted to do something with animals. Veterinary nursing has given Tahlia the chance to do everything she wanted and more. Not only does Tahlia get to be with animals all day, but she also enjoys speaking with clients, providing advice and looking after the team at Caring Vets.
As a nurse Tahlia makes sure she cares for her patients as if they were her own pets. You will often see her when not medicating, checking vitals and all the other less fun things giving them a cuddle and reassuring them they are loved and everything will be ok.
Tahlia is a certificate IV veterinary nurse, she also holds a certificate III in pet grooming as well as completing a course in a bachelor of business management which she will finish in 2 years time.
When not at the clinic Tahlia is at home with her own animals, taking her dogs for a walk or hike, cuddling up to her cats and the never ending cleaning that comes with owning 16 animals, but she wouldn’t have it any other way! She also enjoys staying active and plays Oz-tag and Soccer – which is a great outlet from a sometimes stressful job!
Tahlia loves her job and the team she works with!
