Caroline Passingham

Dip AVN (Surgical) RVN

Caroline trained in the UK and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) in 2002, going on to achieve the diploma in advanced surgical nursing in 2007. Caroline has worked in both general and specialist referral practice, and has also spent time within various marine mammal and wildlife organisations throughout her career as an RVN.

 

Having arrived in Australia in 2013, Caroline has been able to fulfill a long-term ambition of becoming a macropod carer, and is now actively involved in the rescue and rehabilitation of orphaned joeys and is a member of the Tablelands Wildlife Rescue Organisation.

Due to her experience and genuine love of wallabies and roo's, Caroline is regularly called upon to triage and care for young joeys that have been brought in to us at the clinic, a job she loves and never tires of ♡

 

Caroline shares her home with her partner Cameron and their hand-raised, now geriatric cat Mr Badger, who made the long journey from the UK to be with his mum & dad in the Tropics.
