In this episode you’ll hear from a British vet nurse, Sara, who came to locum in Australia and stayed for good. After working as head nurse in a busy hospital for years Sara made the transition to working as a rep for Dermcare, and she’s never looked back.
Sara gave an incredibly generous interview, sharing her honest and considered insights into both the dark and light sides of vet nursing. We shared so many laughs that I actually had to rub my face to alleviate the pain. But, on the flip-side, we also had some very real chats about burn out and the importance of looking after yourself. Sara recommends meditation, exercise, and acupuncture for feeling grounded and looking after yourself and the meditation apps she uses are Calm and Mindset.
Sara is a fit and active, happy and upbeat vet nurse, and just a pleasure to be around. She is highly intelligent and incredibly funny with razor sharp wit that I thoroughly enjoy. I’m not going to lie, I nearly did my snort-laugh in this interview. I’m really glad I heard Sara’s story of England to Australia, and vet nurse to rep, and everything in between. I think you’ll like it too.
