Hi, my name is Marie. I am a senior nurse at Vet Care Unitec .
I have been a vet nurse for 9 years, graduating from Unitec with a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing back in 2009. During my 9 years of nursing Cats and Dogs, I have also spent time working at an exotic referral clinic in Auckland where I got to nurse animals such as Moreporks, lizards and rabbits.
I have a huge passion for all things bunny related and have been deemed "the bunny lady" by past colleagues and clients.
I love all aspects of my job from medical to surgical but my biggest interest has to be nutrition and behaviour, I feel that these two roles play such a vital part in a pet’s health and wellbeing. My most recent interest and new challenge is cat behaviour, thanks to my mischievous rescue Pikelet.
I live in One Tree Hill with my partner, my cat "Pikelet" and rescue bunnies “Willow” and “Winston”. They are all extremely spoilt. Willow and Winston are free range/ housed rabbits and even have their own Wendy House to sleep and play in!
In my spare time I love to bake delicious treats, collect vintage treasures especially clothes and travel with my partner.
