Hello, I am Ella and I joined Vets4Pets back in 2019 as a Student Veterinary Nurse. I am currently in my final year and looking forward to qualifying and becoming an RVN. I enjoy all areas when working in practise but particularly enjoy internal medicine, consults and assisting the vets during surgery. I am hoping to expand my knowledge and skill in the future around Emergency and Critical Care, as this is another area that sparks a lot of interest. At home I have 4 furry friends of my own, 2 cats, 1 dog and a horse all of which enjoy fighting for my attention. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors and being surrounded by friends and family. I am also a big motorsport fan so I enjoy being trackside or having a lazy Sunday watching the Grand Prix.
