Talia Burdon, Cert II animal studies

Trainee Veterinary Nurse

Talia has been part of the team at Mona Vale Vets since 2012. Now a trainee Veterinary Nurse, Talia started as Kennel hand after doing her school work experience with us.

A born and bred local, Talia’s love of animals started when she was young, being a YATZ (Youth at the zoo) volunteer and mentor for 6 years. Upon finishing high school, she studied Cert II in animal studies and is now completing her Bachelor of Science degree at Macquarie uni, majoring in brain and cognitive studies, before she starts her Masters of Occupational Therapy.

As you can tell, Talia has an interest in animal behaviour, rehabilitation and  also general medicine.

She is a wonderful team player both in the workplace and on the sporting field! When not at work you will find her out playing netball or touch footy but also enjoys baseball, softball and horse riding.

Her canine fur-baby is Felix, the rescue boxer x bull Arab and she also has fish (Talia also enjoys aquascaping -like gardening but in a fish tank!)
