Our Veterinary Nurses
Manager & Veterinary Nurse
Kelly grew up on a small farm in Oakford surrounded by animals. She started working in the veterinary industry 1997 and qualified in 2002. Kelly has worked in both large and small animal hospitals and has a great deal of experience in the veterinary field. Kelly’s role at Foothills now sees her doing a lot of the behind the scenes work to ensure we continue to run as a high standard. When nursing, Kelly has a special interest in animal behaviour and wildlife rehabilitation.
Kelly has been with the Foothills team for over 4 years and we couldn’t imagine it being the same without her!
She shares her home with her husband Sonny, sons Casey and Cameron, fur baby ‘Jack’ the Staffy, a small flock of chooks, budgies and some gold fish!
Senior Clinical Nurse
Shanay has been working in the veterinary industry since 2011 and became qualified in early 2014. She has previously worked at Murdoch in the Veterinary Emergency Department and has a special interest in surgery, emergency cases and wildlife rehabilitation.
Shanay grew up near Albany on a cropping and cattle farm, then moved to Perth at the age of 6. She helped out a lot with her parent’s stock feeding business and horse agistment centre – where her passion for horses and helping animals grew.
Along with her 2 horses that keep her busy she has two dogs named Tyson and Kora along with her cat Cindy.
Laura is born and bred in Perth and started her vet nursing career at Foothills in 2016. Laura deals with all marketing areas within the clinic including social media and event planning.
Laura realised her passion for animals at a very young age. In early 2016, she started her own house and pet sitting business to ensure she received her ‘animal fix’ and for some time, ran our puppy pre-school classes. With a keen interest in canine behaviour, Laura is always looking to expand her knowledge in this field.
In her spare time she enjoys riding her horse Linc, playing netball, bush walking and travelling to new places.
Jae joined the Foothills team as a nursing student but we soon realised she was too good to let go! She is now an integral member of our nursing team and she always arrives with a smile on her face and a can-do attitude. Jae enjoys so many aspects of vet nursing and can’t pick a favourite although she is a great surgery nurse and is often found organising, setting up and monitrong our orthopaedic cases.
In her spare time Jae enjoys playing netball, visiting the beach and hanging out with her dogs Tia and Elliot.
Alice joined us in early 2020 as a veterinary nurse and receptionist. Alice grew up in the Perth hills and after travelling extensively for a number of years, she returned to Perth and decided to start her nursing career. Alice started her vet nursing journey in 2016 and has since worked in a number of clinics around Perth.
She enjoys surgery nursing and wound management.
In her spare time, Alice loves to travel, visit the beach and explore new places with her Golden Retriever puppy, Mavis.
Trainee Veterinary Nurse
Charley joined the Foothills team as a kennel hand and very quickly decided she wanted to become a nurse. She transitioned into a trainee vet nurse role after signinig up for her Certificate IV in Veterinary nursing at tafe. Charley is a kind and helpful team member who we are so glad to have onboard and we know she will make an incredible nurse.
Charley does a great job at keeping the day running by ensuring all of the background tasks are complete. She is enjoying her nursing journey and learning more and more about surgical nursing by the day.
Charley has a Kelpie named Scout and a cat called Arlo – both rescues through Foothills 🙂
Ally started her vet nursing career in 2019 and came to us a work experience student. After seeing her amazing work ethic and the compassion she showed to her patients, we snapped her up and she is now one of our permanent nurses. Having previously worked with animals in kennels, animal shelters, wildlife centres and groomers (both dogs and cats) she has always had a passion to be apart of the animal welfare and veterinary industry.
She enjoys the surgical side of nursing but lately is liking the medical side of things. Ally has two Italian greyhounds who are her much loved fur babies and when not at work, she loves exploring new places with them.
