Paige fell into the Animal Care Industry after her 1st day at Uni studying Biomedical Science. After reading the paper while on campus noticed a traineeship in captive animal management at Blackbutt Reserve, applied and began working whilst studying.

She was then fortunate enough to secure a position at Taronga Zoo as a bird handler and free flight bird show presenter. Paige has a passion for the care of wildlife both in a zoo and clinic environment.

Paige joined AREC as an Animal Attendant in Feb 09, she loves learning new and exciting things and thinks she has become addicted to the charged page of emergency care. Paige finally formalised her many years of nursing experience in 2018 and graduated as a Certificate IV Vet Nurse!
