Mickayla Camps

Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing

 

When Mickayla first started coming into Cowra Veterinary Centre with her dog Kelsey, she was still at primary school!  

 

Mickayla started out doing volunteer work after school and helping out on Saturdays and when a vacancy came up we were more than happy for her to join our team full time while she completes her studies.  

 

It has been great to see Mickayla grow in skill and confidence and you will find her working in surgery, after hours and on reception.

Brittany Wilson

Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing

 

Brittany joined the Cowra Vet team in 2021 making the trip from her family farm in chilly Cargo. 

 

Though it sounds more like an ark than a farm – cattle, sheep, a camel, an alpaca, horses, cats and dogs.

 

Britt went to America to play soccer but was forced to retire from a planned professional sporting career due to injury.

 

Depending on the day, you will find Britt on reception, in surgery and working on Saturdays.
