A qualified and registered veterinary nurse, Paula completed her studies in the UK in 2008 and worked within the nursing team at an orthopaedic referral clinic in Manchester. After two years she moved back to Dublin and joined the University Veterinary Hospital, UCD and worked there as a member of the small animal medical team. She has gained a lot of experience as a locum veterinary nurse working in various practices including the Dogs Trust and the Veterinary Clinic at the DSPCA.
However, Paula was delighted to take on a new challenge and joined Palmerstown Veterinary Hospital in May 2011 as a full time veterinary nurse. She loves meeting our PVH clients (and their furry companions) and is enjoying being involved in the nursing clinics that are offered at PVH to all clients. She also manages Palmerstown's social media presence including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Paula is cat mad and currently has 2 kittys, Logan and Taco, who were both rescued as kittens. Paula's love for cats has led her to further study in all things feline. She has recently completed a Diploma in Feline Nursing, which she throughly enjoyed. Her next challenge will be an Advanced Certificate in Feline Behaviour. In her spare time, Paula enjoys yoga and running.
