Since joining VetPrac in 2017, Janine has been using her very well practiced skills in team work and efficiency, and her experience working as a Veterinary Technician, to plan and facilitate our workshops. The team at VetPrac is constantly amazed at how much Janine can fit into 24 hours. Despite having 4 children between the ages of 11 and 3, Janine still has time to be a group training officer for the State Emergency Service; Janine has volunteered for SES since her teenage years. She has been on the Committee for Relay for Life in Ipswich for 3 years and undertook the role of MC for the 2018 edition of the event, which raised $85,000.

 

Over the years Janine’s tireless volunteer efforts have been acknowledged with numerous awards, including a Community Leadership Award, Queensland youth alliance awards 2006, and a Flood Citation for volunteer assistance with S.E.S during the floods in the Ipswich area 2011.

 

Janine even has time to bake many tasty snacks that the VetPrac team enjoy at meetings! She enjoys escaping with her family to camp off the grid in their 1978 Jayco pop up camper, which (of course) they renovated themselves. Only someone with Janine’s superb planning and time management skills could find a weekend with no work and no kids hockey to organize such trips away!

 

We can rely on Janine to keep the VetPrac workshops running to schedule, in her cool, calm and collected manner, and, in the case of an emergency, we all know who to call first!
