Louise Kapteyn

Veterinary Nurse

I have grown up in Kuranda and have been working for the Kuranda Vet surgery since April 1995. Every year I have the wonderful opportunity to go away to conferences, workshops and seminars that give me the chance to learn so many new things.

I love being able to go to work each morning with such an enthusiastic and inspiring team. I enjoy every aspect of my job but get very excited over animal nutrition, dentistry and wound management, large and small animals.

Tracey has been working with the Kuranda and Mareeba Veterinary Services for over 8 years now and still finds a different challenge each week. There is always something new to witness in the animal kingdom.
