Louise Kapteyn

Veterinary Nurse Cert IV

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.
