Veterinary Nurse

Holly Profile

Holly is one of our ‘homegrown’ full-time nurses at our Underwood hospital. She came to VSS as a trainee nurse and then developed into a specialist nurse here.  

The role

Holly is a rotating nurse, which means that she rotates through our medicine and surgery departments with time spent in each. 

“I am involved with providing hands-on, gold standard patient care for all of our patients. I especially enjoy being able to spend time and create special bonds with each individual patient, as well as seeing them recover and go home to their families.”

The culture

“The team here at VSS has to be one of the best points to working here. Not only are you surrounded by a diverse range of knowledge and skills, but you’re also in an environment where we all look after each other. Everyone is super easy going and can have fun, which makes the harder days easy.”

“I had so much support to develop and grow in my career as a nurse here at VSS. There are lots of opportunities for continuing education and I have expanded my knowledge and experience across several of the departments.”


Holly describes herself as ‘Staffy obsessed’, so of course, she owns her own Staffy, named Calvin. The pair love spending time at home catching up by binging on Netflix series’ and getting out in the sun to enjoy good food and the outdoors.
