Barbara Hernandez Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing

Barbara (AKA "Babs") started her career in hospitality but always knew there had to be more to life than that. We think the change of career had something to do with "Indi", a little and very sweet Dachsund cross who must have whispered in her ear "Babs, there is a place where you can enjoy your work and make puppies like me better..."

Babs likes long walks on the beach, mariachi music and sausage dogs.
