Ellie is originally from the south west of England where she started her veterinary nursing career in 2001. She qualified with a diploma in veterinary nursing from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2004 and worked in a busy first opinion practice as head nurse. Ellie has always had a passion for travel and has volunteered and worked with a wide range of species in Africa, Namibia and Australia.

Travel brought Ellie to New Zealand in 2009 which she now calls home. She is an experienced nurse who has worked in two small animal practices in New Zealand and also in a canine hydrotherapy centre. She holds a certificate in adult education and taught the veterinary nursing qualification to students for 2 years. She also has a keen interest in animal behaviour, and is certified in low stress handling for cats and dogs.

Ellie has been working as a veterinary nurse with Dr Debbie Simpson at The Skin Vet since March 2016. She has been trained and mentored by Debbie in many areas of dermatology including immunotherapy.

In her spare time Ellie enjoys walking her lurcher Eddie and fund raising for various charities.
