Alli started her journey for the love of animals at a very young age. Pretending she had a mini zoo at home, she would spend her Saturday mornings up early feeding the wild birds and attending to the many guinea pigs she used to own. She’s always known she wanted to work with animals in any capacity, so she completed both a Cert III in Captive Animals and Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing. She’s always had a strong passion for birds and had the amazing opportunity to work as a volunteer keeper at the Australian Reptile Park where later she became a casual keeper for 3 years. She then moved on to become an Animal Attendant at the emergency centre where later offered a permanent position in the Referral Team.
