Welcome Penny

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our newest team member, Penny, to The Blackburn Vet. Penny joins us as our new Practice Manager. Penny started her career as a Veterinary Nurse in 2005 and she has never once looked back.  In 2008 she relocated to one of our sister clinics and has been with the group ever since. 

Penny knew early on that animals needed to be a big part of her life.  Growing up on a small farm in the Yarra Valley she was surrounded by horses, sheep, chickens and dogs. From a young age Penny was always keen to be involved in the care of all her pets, even if her horse kept standing on her feet, she knew he didn't mean it.

In 2014 Penny stepped out of her nursing career to have two beautiful boys, Finn and Liam.  She loves raising her two boys and gets so much pleasure in watching them grow but felt compelled to re-enter the career that she has such a passion for. 

Also at home Penny has a very snugly 12 year old rescue cat called Sasha.  She is very slowly adjusting to having two human brothers who want to pat and cuddle her all the time.

Penny is looking forward to meeting all of our special pets and their amazing clients. Please make her feel welcome next time you are in the clinic.
