Front of House
Hi everyone! I’m Belinda. I’ve been working at VetCare Grey Lynn for about a year now as the receptionist. You’ll find that I’m generally the first face you’ll see when you walk through the door.
I studied a Bachelor of Arts in English and Art History. Funnily enough, neither of these subjects are related to what I’m currently doing! What I love about working at Vetcare, however, is meeting and talking to all our lovely clients and helping to address any of their concerns or queries about their furry friends.
I’ve been passionate about animals since childhood. I grew up with a black and white “tuxedo” cat named Rocky, after Sylvester Stallone’s character Rocky Balboa, as he was a feisty boy! We had him for 17 years before he passed away in March last year. He is missed dearly – you never forget your first pet!
Recently, I adopted a cat from work called Seren. She’s a talkative girl who loves her biscuits and a bit of a snuggle every now and then. The word entertaining can only begin to describe her personality.
Aside from my love of animals, I consider myself a bit of an adventure seeker. I’m going to Central America soon, and will be travelling around Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. Don’t get me wrong, I do like to indulge in a few more low-key activities too. I am an avid reader and writer, love being outdoors, and adore spending time with my family and friends. My ideal night would likely involve a glass of wine, melted cheese and a good movie.
So that’s me in a nutshell! I look forward to seeing you all soon.
