Veterinary Nurse Repro team
Amanda has been with us at APEC since October 2010. With a short break in-between she re-joined us as a volunteer assisting with the Pinery fire horses and then back into her role as a Vet nurse as if she never left.
Amanda was pretty much born into a life of horses and throughout her career has worked at various studs and racing stables from the age of 15 years.
Over her years of riding she has completed up to novice in eventing and B grade showjumping an is a D grade pony club instructor. For those that have read Elizabeth’s book ‘Horse Doctor’, Amanda features in one of the chapters with a rather impressive colic story of her beloved horse Cooper on Christmas Day. (If you haven’t read it yet, you can still buy copies from the clinic.)
Amanda is quite the asset to our team as a jack of all trades, often repairing fences, painting & many other jobs that often aren’t quite in the ‘vet nurse job description. Amanda is one of our very experienced stallion handlers during breeding season and is a bit of a favourite amongst the stallions who know exactly who she is and why they’re here when they see her!
In her spare time Amanda enjoys spending time with her family and friends and her various pets.
If you can’t find me there I will be with my other horsepower passion (anything with a motor).
Looking forward to getting my hands dirty and learning something new everyday.
