Amanda started work at a small mixed practice in Norwich in 1995 as an Animal Nurse and Receptionist. During this time she decided to seek employment at an approved training practice elsewhere so that she could train and qualify as a Veterinary Nurse (VN). Amanda moved to a position at the Old Golf House Veterinary Hospital in Thetford in 1998, where she trained and subsequently qualified as a VN in August 2000. Whilst working in general practice, Amanda realised she wanted to learn more and so applied to study for the Advanced Medical Nursing Diploma. To help further develop her nursing skills and to help prepare her for the Diploma, Amanda succeeded in applying for a position at the AHT, and she joined the team here in May 2005. Amanda passed her Diploma in April 2007 and is now a dedicated nurse to the medicine and oncology disciplines.
