  • Elicia

    During her childhood, Elicia cared for many animals including: dogs, rabbits, birds, fish and even an axolotl. So it is no surprise that her lifes work is to now look after your beloved animals.

    Elicia started as a Veterinary Nurse in 2008 and completed her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2011. Since then she has worked in different animal fields such as grooming and behaviour, but has always come back to nursing. This is what she finds the most enjoyable and rewarding of all.

    Elicia and her fiance, Andrew, live with Poppy, a Cane Corso Cross (DNA test to prove it!), whom they adopted from a shelter in 2013. Poppy is a social butterfly and will make friends with everyone she meets. Poppy also loves to play with Holly, their foster fail feline, and Twilight, Elicia’s bunny, who just celebrated her 9th birthday.

    Elicia’s smile and bubbly personality are infectious and she very much looks forward to taking care of your beautiful pets.
