Hi, I'm Cat. I have worked with the on campus students at OP for 9 years now. I have enjoyed working both in the classroom and in a clinical setting over these years. Having left NZ on my big OE, I unintentionally spent 13 years in Northern Ireland before moving home, first working with horses and then training and working as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in both small animal and mixed practice.
