Veterinary Nurse


Carmen joined the West Harbour team in June 2023 to expand her knowledge in general practice and anaesthetics. She had previously worked in after hours emergency care since graduating in 2020.

After spending some time at an elephant and dog rescue in Chiang Mai Thailand and finding great fulfillment in providing care and companionship for the abandoned and abused animals, Carmen decided to pursue veterinary nursing once she arrived back in New Zealand. 

Outside of work Carmen has 3 cats (Zeus, Stevie and Lucy), 2 rats (Salem and Piper) and one spoiled staffy dog (Bernie). She also loves fishing, swimming and all things to do with the ocean (including shark cage diving).
