Lani Hackland Certificate IV Veterinary Nursing

HEAD NURSE

Lani has over 12 years experience as a specialist nurse, and has worked in all fields including medical, surgical, ophthalmology, oncology, and management. Lani took up the position of head nurse when we started business in October 2015, and her wealth of experience and love of animals have made her an absolute asset. Lani has 2 cats at home (with 7 legs between them), called KC and Gregan that keep her on her toes. Sunny the budgie taunts the cats constantly, just to add to the mischief in the house.
