Rhiannon grew up on the Gold Coast then moved to Murwillumbah where she began her veterinary nurse training at just 15 years of age. Since she can remember she would take any opportunity to work with animals whether it be in a pet shop or volunteering at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, believing her passion for animals came from her mother, who was always caring for sick and injured animals throughout her childhood. Rhiannon’s favourite part of being a veterinary nurse is the unusual cases, in particular exotics. She aspires to keep learning as much as possible, about disease, nutrition, wildlife and biology, and one day pursue her dream to work with rehabilitation of endangered species. Her favourite animal is the orangutan, and is captured by their beauty and dreams of meeting one. Since she cannot have a pet orangutan, she makes do with her pet snake, Patrick, and plans to shortly expand her family with chickens and pet rats.
