Chloe joined us in 2012 as a volunteer at Mt Annan while completing her Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing at Yallah TAFE. Following graduation Chloe then joined us officially, in 2013.
Chloe first started exploring her passion for animals at the age of 16 with volunteer work on the weekends at the Illawarra RSPCA where she continued for 18months, only stopping to focus on her year 12 studies. During her HSC Chloe completed her animal studies certificate II via TVET. This allowed her to jump straight into vet nursing immediately after leaving school.
As well has working at Macarthur Veterinary Group, Chloe holds a casual job at Collegians Rugby League Football club, but more excitingly, volunteers at Symbio Wildlife Park where she works in the primate and carnivore sections, caring for little monkeys, red pandas, meerkats, dingos, and often helps out with native and farmyard animals.
Chloe currently lives in Thirroul with her partner Daniel. Together they own an extremely cute eastern long neck turtle called ‘Nelson’, and many of his fish friends. As well, Chloe and Daniel are the proud guardians of a newly adopted rainbow lorikeet who arrived as a stray at the clinic, he is extremely clever and they have named him Ridley. Chloe and Daniel both own childhood pets (which currently live with their respective parents). Chloe’s 12yr old Jack Russell cross is called ‘Rusty’ and her 12yr domestic short haired cat is called ‘Sassy’, both were adopted from the RSPCA. Daniel has a 3year old Kelpie cross Staffy called ‘Leo’, who hopefully will be joining their young family soon.
Chloe enjoys being part of the team at MVG where she is able to be herself and grow within her career.
