amanda

Super Amanda was cherry picked to join the team and her big smiles and her passion for nursing are legendary :-).

Amanda has always lived in Corfe Mullen and attended Corfe Hills school before pursuing her ambition to be a veterinary nurse.  Amanda had a real menagerie of pets when growing up, ranging from Lawson dragons to ferrets, cats, dogs and Guinea pigs!  She currently lives at home with her trusty whippet, mini dachshund and collie.
Amanda has a keen interest in exotic reptiles and aspires to higher qualification within the area of rehabilitative medicine to include hydrotherapy, laser therapy and physiotherapy.
Amanda enjoys going on long dog walks in the surrounding countryside and socialising with friends and family in both Wimborne and Broadstone.

25 things you didn’t know about AMANDA…

  1. The 3 things I would take on a desert island……

Lacey (my dog) to keep me sane and keep me company

My ipod

Bags and bags of Tyrells hand cooked crisps!

  1.  When I was younger I wanted to be……

I’ve always wanted a job with some sort of involvement with animals!

  1.   3 famous people (dead or alive) I would invite to a dinner party……

(This is a hard one!) Will smith, Leonardo DiCaprio and Zooey Deschanel

  1.  My guilty pleasure……

I’m rather fond of Justin Bieber! And one direction! (yikes…)

  1.  What makes Natterjacks different……

Natterjacks aren’t out to get money, they solely thrive on doing the best thing for the

patient. Plus the friendships between the team are the best I’ve encountered! Making

the whole environment of the surgery friendly and positive.

  1.  My proudest ‘claim to fame’ or celebrity encounter…

In my old practice, I dealt with Harry Redknapp and his dogs. Had to go to his house

once for a visit! I have a picture with him! Haha

  1. Two things I consider myself to be very bad at…..

Dieting

Parking! Mainly parallel. I’d rather pay for parking then parallel park for free!

  1.  Two things I consider myself to be very good at…

Being a good trustworthy friend/colleague

I consider myself a very caring person. I always have to make sure if someone is angry

or upset, that I have done my best to help the person in any way I can.

  1.   One thing that not many people know about me….

I’ve got 4 tattoos, one of which I got when I was in turkey when I was 16! Oops!

  1.   I was frightened for my life at work when…

Probably..when a MAJOR care*/aggressive cat escaped and only (only a few months

into training) me and a vet nurse assistant were in the room, and we couldn’t approach

it without it doing a 360 wall of death around us. We couldn’t get out the room as the cat

was in the way of the door and would fly at us when we tried to get the handle. That

was pretty horrible!

  1.   My most annoying habit .…

After a discussion with my boyfriend and one of my good friends.. all they came up with

was occasionally my self-doubt and not trusting my gut instincts, and my pre-

organisation months in advance of anything planned!

  1.   The song I would perform in a Karaoke bar is…

I’m not an 80’s baby but I love 80’s music, it’s funky! Probably something like wham –

wake me up before you go-go, or Phil Collins (she’s an easy lover), there’s plenty more

I just can’t think! Can’t go wrong with a bit of MJ too!

  1.   If I was forced to live anywhere else than the beautiful south coast of Dorset I

would live…

In England it would be cornwall, in the world – possibly Hawaii, or somewhere really

exotic and warm!

  1.   I you were to look in my fridge right now you would find….

Cheese, yum!

  1.   My favourite place to go for dinner is….

I couldn’t choose between indian/Mexican or Italian!

  1.   If I won the lottery my first purchase would be….

A beautiful but cosy modern house with a big garden!

  1.   One place I really want to visit before I die is…

One? Can I say 4?! America, Lapland, New Zealand and Australia. All places I still

haven’t visited!

  1.   My favourite holiday past-time is ……..

My boyfriend and I went on a really cool 2 week cruise with the royal Caribbean, really

fond memories!

  1.   If I was a vegetable, I would be a ….

A cucumber. I eat cucumber almost every day. I love it!

  1.   My weirdest phobia is ….

Fish. Goldfish are ok but anything else makes me uneasy. However I like going to sea

life centres but I get a bit freaked out!

  1.   If I could swap lives with anyone for a day it would be….

One of my dogs. They’ve got the most chilled out cool lives!

  1.   My favourite place to go for a walk…

Woodlands or beachy areas

  1.   The strangest thing I’ve ever seen at work …

There’s been a few odd things but I can distinctly remember someone bringing me in a

stray tarantula someone found along the road! We had nowhere to keep it apart from an

old cat carrier for a few days! It survived and got rehomed shortly after!

  1.   I would hate to get stuck here ….

An elevator, or one of those air-con(?) vents people crawl around in in films. I

Claustrophobic much!

  1.   One thing I really want to do before I die is….

I really want to work in a wildlife orphanage in Africa for a few weeks! (which i have

now booked to do in April 2017!)
