Cheryl commenced veterinary nursing in 1997 with 9 years in general practice, obtaining her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. She then took on a new opportunity to work in a human ophthalmic day surgery hospital, where she trained and obtained qualifications in human hospital sterilization and infection control. After 12 years in human ophthalmology, Cheryl decided to combine her veterinary and ophthalmic knowledge and skills by working at VOR. Her pets include Luna, a good looking, highly demanding Japanese Spitz, and Akela, an elegant long-haired cat. When she is not at VOR, she is looking after her family, exercising, spending time at the beach and can often be found on the basketball courts.
