Deanna worked as a wildlife keeper for 6 years in Tropical North Queensland, but she decided she required a more challenging career path so pursued veterinary nursing. Nursing offered a wide variety of new skills and most of all a challenge within the animal industry. Deanna relocated to Perth in 2011 to study a full time for her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. She enjoyed Perth and the lifestyle too much to move back to Queensland as originally planned. Deanna has a poodle named Pablo and 2 cats.
