Joel is The House Call Vet’s head nurse. Always wanting to work with animals, a stint at the local vet clinic in early high school confirmed this desire.
After initially joining that clinic on weekends while in his senior years in high school, he joined full time as a trainee and completed his Veterinary Nurse studies in 2001 to receive his Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing.
Joel has since worked as head nurse and practice manager for this same group of clinics before relocating to sunny Queensland where he took up a head nurse role in a general practice.
He then transferred to a leading specialist centre in Brisbane’s northern suburbs where he joined the emergency and oncology departments before joining The House Call Vet team full time.
Joel lives in Carina Heights with his partner and fur family – 2 middle-aged Labradors, a middle aged cat, several chickens, fish and an elderly lizard called Trevor.
