Shelley has had a varied career path in graphic design and administration and running her own toy shop, and attributes her change to veterinary nursing to her great love and affinity with animals. She started vet nursing in 2015 and loves being involved particularly in surgery and general nursing.
Shelley fills her busy life with studying towards Certificate IV Vet Nursing, and running her own cat rescue organisation Tom and Queenie.org. Her family includes 4 cats (all foster fails) named Pud, Marjorie, Andi and Jenny, and a miriad of rescue chickens.
In her spare time Shelley loves camping, kayaking, travelling, crocheting and spending time with her grown up children.
