Sam grew up in a small town called Donnybrook which is 20 minutes from Caboolture (Brisbane) and was never short of an animal or two having dogs, cats, chooks, ducks and many Horses, YES that’s right Sam is a mad horse lover, breeding a few foals for fun and joining the western show scene for awhile.
Sam had the opportunity to work as a zoo keeper at Australia Zoo for a 3 years mainly working with the camels, foxes and dingoes.
Then in 2007, she entered the Race Horse scene with her partner, training and breeding a few foals.
After making the big move to Townsville in 2013 set up stables and a home up here.
Sam has always loved working with animals and saw an opportunity to study and volunteer to become a vet nurse.
Sam counts herself lucky as she now works here at TVC full time and is able to fulfill her passion of becoming a vet nurse.
