Nicole Patterson

Nicole has been with clinic for 7 years and is one of our more senior nurses. After growing up on a farm in the states far west, where she was always surrounded by horses, dogs and other farm animals, Nicole took what seemed like a natural path into vet nursing, completing her certificate 4 in vet nursing and quickly found herself promoted to head nurse of a large regional clinic.

Nicole moved to Melbourne for a change of pace 15 years ago, and also explored different career options before realizing that her passion for animals was yearning, and hence shifted her focus back to vet nursing.

Nicole is the proud parent of a gorgeous British Bulldog named Daisy who is a regular visitor at the clinic and loves nothing more than comforting our upset inpatients. Nicole recently got married and is expecting her first child with husband Daniel so life is certainly keeping her busy!
