Veterinary Care Assistant

Catherine Short BA (Hons) Popular Music Veterinary Care Assistant

In 2019 I moved to Cumbria working as a full-time musician. I decided that I wanted a career change after working in the music industry for over 10 years. Working with animals has always been a dream of mine, and a career that I wanted to pursue when I was younger. Having had no veterinary experience at all, it was a massive decision to make. I decided to take the plunge, left my job, and completed a pre apprenticeship in Animal Care and gained the experience I needed to move forward. I first joined Highgate Vets in August 2021, working as a Veterinary Care Assistant, and am now studying Level 2 in Animal Care and Welfare. Following the completion of this, I hope to progress to become a student Veterinary Nurse.

I love being a care assistant, my day-to-day jobs are so diverse, and every day is different. I am always happy to help and throw myself into anything no matter what the job is. I really enjoy working at Highgate Vets, the team is brilliant and extremely supportive. I do not regret taking my first steps in to Veterinary, and I am looking forward to my future here at Highgate Vets.
