Experience with animals and own pets

I have grown up with animals all my life and my life wouldn't be the same without them. I have a one and a half-year-old Boston Terrier named Layla. She is my rock and is with me through everything. I also share two hedgehogs, two hamsters and two chinchillas with my sister and I have adopted two rats From SaveMe Rescue Centre.

I have experience in looking after Cockatiels, as well as my mom's Umbrella Cockatoo. My dad's girlfriend also owns two cats, so I know how to care for them too. Horses have been a big part of my life for the past twelve years and I don't know where I would be without them.

All in all, I have experience with many different animals and I am so excited to keep learning more about animals and experiencing new animal-related things!

Please describe how you know this person:

I have known Lisa for well over a year now. Lisa is the daughter of a work colleague. I enlisted Lisa last year to assist me with launching a gut optimiser for horses. She is a self-starter and assisted me, going beyond the requirements expected of her. She mobilised and put together a team of youngsters to assist me at horse shows and her enthusiasm filtered all the way through the team.

Lisa is an amazing young woman - committed, honest, hard-working and always ready to assist. I have worked with her with animals (horses and dogs) and find her to be an empathetic and kind person. I would highly recommended her with work with any animal
