Summer joined the hospital in 2000 as a volunteer worker whilst studying Certificate II Animal Studies at TAFE. She then progressed from casual to full time employment whilst completing her Veterinary Nursing Certificates.
Summer returned to East Port Veterinary Hospital part time in 2009 after 2 years off with her new son Kain. She was married to Drew in the same year and returned to full time employment in late 2012. Summer has a playful young cat called “Pickles” which she bought for Kain in 2013 from the local branch of the RSPCA. In her spare time, Summer indulges her artistic talents which includes the beautiful mosaic of the hospital logo which can be viewed at reception.
