Position: Veterinary Nurse
My name is Gemma and I have been a Registered Veterinary Nurse for 6 years. I qualified in 2014 from Edinburgh Napier University with a BSc Honours Degree in Veterinary Nursing and went on to work in a Small Animal Practice in Cumbernauld. I was excited to be given the chance to work at Apex Vets to be able to experience the plethora of animals and interesting cases that Apex has to offer. The opportunity to further my knowledge and work alongside the skilled team here was something I could not pass by.
I grew up with an assortment of pets, from Love Birds and Finches to Hamsters and Guinea Pigs and have always known that I wanted to work with animals. However, I did not know that Veterinary Nursing was the career for me until I spent a few weeks at a Veterinary Practice during my sixth year of High School. I then couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
I currently live in Carntyne with my sister, which can be quite interesting at times, and with my Diva of a Bichon Frise called Maisy. In my spare time I love to read and bake cakes. I take every opportunity that the sun is out to head up to our family caravan in Rosneath and go for walks with Maisy.
Qualifications – BSc (Hons) Veterinary Nursing.
