When Liz came to NZ she wanted to learn how to ski, surf and ride a motorbike.  She has achieved all 3, but enjoys surfing the most, or just hanging out at the beach.

The best part of being a Veterinary Nurse is meeting amazing clients and making a difference for them and their pets.  Intensive nursing and nutrition are favourite subjects for Liz.
