Hi, my name is Jackie Jayne. I started work at Usk Veterinary Centre in 1988 having decided at the age of 13 that I wanted to be a veterinary nurse. I qualified from Berkshire college of Agriculture in 1991 and became Head Nurse here in 1992/3. Over the years I've seen the role change a lot from lay staff to professional. Since having my son in 2010 I split my time between family and work.
I still enjoy all aspects of the role, including theatre nursing, radiography, weight management (my own lazy fat cat helps me understand your frustrations), medical nursing especially diabetic cases where I get to know the owners as well as their pets.
I love the area I live in and spending times outdoors with the family.
