About Penelope

Hello,

My name is Pene, and I am currently a 3rd year Vet student at James Cook University. I am 25 years old and studying vet due to my obvious love for animals as well as my interest in medicine. I grew up in a family of vet, and was surrounded by my own pets which included everything from cats, dogs, rabbits, lizards, horses, sheep, and chickens. As well as this I have been working as a vet nurse part time for the last 6 years. This has assisted with my knowledge about animal handling, behaviour, and care.

I moved up to Townsville from Victoria and have been unable to have any pets of my own up here due to my constant travel between the two states. I would love the opportunity to look after any animals and help out in any way required, as I miss having pets of my own.

I am very reliable and easy to get along with.

My current university schedule means that I am very flexible with hours, and I am around for all major holidays. I am happy to travel as far as required and stay as long as needed.

If you need any references please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to send them through.

Kind Regards

Pene

We loved having Pene watch over our animals and she went over and above while we were gone. Communication was really clear and she is very dependable and personable. We will definitely use her again.
