Rachel has been a client of Willoughby Vets since she was 7 years old, where she would bring her 2 miniature schnauzers in to see Dr. Peter. Her love of animals developed at a very young age through dog-ownership and horse-riding, and after a year of volunteer work with us upon completing high school, she was offered a job as a junior Veterinary Nurse. In 2011 and 2012 she completed her Certificate 2; Animal Studies and Certificate 4; Veterinary Nursing through Ultimo Tafe while working full-time as a vet nurse. At the end of 2018 she completed a Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience majoring in Animal Health and Disease at the University of Sydney, and is now undertaking Master of Animal Science through Charles Sturt University as a distance student. Her dream and life goal is to be accepted into the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, and one day work in a small or mixed animal practice as a veterinarian. She currently has 3 dogs and 4 cats, and has previously owned an ex-racing Thoroughbred, two cockatiels, two rabbits and three dogs.
