Cailin’s passion for animal care started when she was very young – rescuing and releasing injured wildlife she found on her family’s 5-acre property over the years. After graduating as a veterinary nurse in 2020, her first job in the industry (which she’s still over the moon about) has been with Ashgrove Avenue Veterinary Clinic. Helping animals and their owners feel cared for and valued and supporting the team are some of her favourite aspects of vet nursing, as well as the huge variety the job provides.

At home, she and her husband have a range of birds to keep them busy including their two budgies, Mintie and Daisy, and their cockatiel, Shelly. To add to the flock, she cares for an aviary of finches and diamond doves and the friendly family goose: Goliath the gentle giant. In her free time, Cailin enjoys kayaking (sometimes with Goliath), playing the piano and going on nature and wildlife photography adventures.
