In this episode I caught up with Michelle, who has been recommended for the show many times. Michelle coordinates the blood bank at the Animal Hospital at Murdock. This is just one of many interesting phases of Michelle's career including working as a zoo vet nurse and qualified zoo keeper, and volunteering on a bear rescue sanctuary in remote Vietnam.

Michelle has some great advice on how to be a career veterinary nurse, including being strategic about career jumps, moves, side steps and even exit plans. And this of course is the secret to staying fresh and motivated in your career.

I really enjoyed interviewing Michelle and feel like we only just scratched the surface of what she has to say. Michelle is happy for anyone to reach out to her with questions about blood banking in practice, so I'll put a link to the Animal Hospital at Murdock in the show notes.

We also discussed:

• Michelle did her fear free training with Fear Free

• Serena Dean from a previous episode also has a fear free training platform called Stress Free Pets

• Perth Zoo

• Free the Bears

• Contact Michelle via the Animal Hospital at Murdock
