Small Animal Rehomer

My background is in engineering. Maybe not the most obvious career path for someone who’s always been passionate about caring for animals! I started at Oak Tree as a volunteer with the dog training classes and workshops, and then in the rehoming kennels.

In August 2020 I joined the Small Animals Team. Being part of a progressive team devoted to the welfare and training of dogs and cats in our care is very rewarding. Each day is different, and the role is varied. We deal with intake requests, all aspects of caring for animals staying with us, matching and placing animals with adopters and supporting them through the transition to their lives together.

When I’m not working, I enjoy training and spending time with my 3 rescue dogs out in the Border Hills.
