From a young age Karen Kaye has always loved animals, so it was only natural that a career helping them in some way was in her future. And being a veterinary nurse is the ultimate way to do what she loves.
Karen moved into emergency vet nursing for a new challenge and to be a more hands-on nurse, and working in an emergency vet hospital allows her the opportunity.
For Karen, there is no better feeling than seeing one of her patients recover and go home with their owners after a long stay in hospital.
She loves working at Perth Vet Emergency as every day brings something new and exciting, she is constantly learning and growing, and the team of people she works alongside.
For someone aspiring to work in emergency medicine, Karen says to take the leap as it is a decision you won’t ever regret. In the emergency setting, you will learn so much and broaden your skills and meet many amazing people along the way.
Outside of work you can find Karen enjoying trips to the beach and going to the gym.
