Tashi has done everything! But now, after studying at TAFE and working for a vet in Lismore, we have her caring for the patients and clients of North Coast veterinary Services. Tashi has been with us since we opened our doors and we are thrilled to have her as our head nurse. Her nursing and customer skills are exceptional, and the animals just love her. When she is not taking care of our beloved patients Tashi is saving the world by replanting rainforest habitats and walking her Staffys.
Keiran started working for North Coast Veterinary Services around the middle of 2022. She completed her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2016 and between then and now has volunteered with a myriad of different species; domestic, native and exotic, with Giant Petrels and Frigatebirds being a couple of her top favourite bird species she’s had the pleasure of rehabilitating. Keiran has rapidly taken North Coast Veterinary Services’ title of “Chief Greyhound Cuddler” and wastes no time in making sure all of the greyhounds that come into the clinic are smothered with her love. When she’s not cuddling hounds, you’ll see her smiling face and loving nature greeting all walks of life that come through the door..
