Kirsty Tesh RVN
Head Veterinary Nurse
Hi, I am Kirsty, head nurse at Vets4Pets Bourne. I have always wanted to work with animals and from a young age, I knew the direction I wanted to take. Whilst I was at secondary school I worked in a local vets on Saturday mornings, which confirmed that veterinary nursing was the career that I wanted to pursue. After passing my GCSEs, in 2000 I secured a place at a veterinary hospital to work full time and study towards my veterinary nursing qualification.
In 2004, I gained my qualification, since then I have worked in a variety of practices, from one man practices to hospitals and referral centres. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary nursing, but I have a particular interest in anaesthesia, medical nursing, behaviour and nutrition.
In 2014, I left veterinary nursing to pursue a teaching career, I have spent the last three years teaching animal care at a further education college and this year gained my Certificate in Education. My aim is to combine my veterinary nursing qualification, experience and passion for the industry with my teaching and train future veterinary nurses within the practice.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, dogs and friends, holidays and eating out. I am very proud to be a part of this practice, I look forward to meeting you and your pet and providing a high standard of care.
