Thank you for this introductory blog Cindy!


To write a blog about yourself is not easy! How do you describe yourself, what it is you do and who are you? Put me in a room with a group of people and I can talk all day, but this is difficult….so here we go.

My name is Cindy Grew and I am the Business Development Coordinator for the Vet Care division of B. Braun Australia and New Zealand.

When I am not working full time for B. Braun, I am a mother of 3 beautiful girls, wife to a supportive husband (I travel a lot), vet nurse and a wildlife carer.

I like to keep busy and learn new things; it is my love of learning that brought me to leave my fulltime position as a vet nurse, trainer, and practice manager.

For the past 8, actually now I think about it almost 9 years, I have had the privilege to be a part of an amazing team of vets and nurses at 3 hospitals, one of which is 24hrs.

The decision to leave the clinic on a full-time basis was a difficult one; who can really walk away from caring for animals every day? However, it has been so worth it.

I’ve been working for B. Braun for 2 and a half years, and part of my role is to train and educate vets, techs and nurses. Training people is something that I truly enjoy and to be able to offer this to veterinary clinics around Australia and New Zealand has been incredible. I learn a lot from my discussions with so many amazing veterinary professionals which has made me a better trainer.

I feel that continuing one’s education is vital; it helps us become better, more adaptable to our workplace and more accepting of change. To be able to bring different levels of training to nurses and techs is really important to me and to be able to offer this training remotely is incredible.

Everyone should have this opportunity, and no one should miss out.

 

 

Join Margie and Cindy on Wednesday May 27th. We’ll cover how to identify damaged and non-functioning instruments, how to clean, dry and store them and what to look for during the inspection process. Are you inspecting them every time? We will help give you the tools to process your instruments, so that you have a better understanding of the importance of their function. Then it’s over to you – tell us what it’s like in your practice and let’s go over your challenges.
