Nurses & Reception

Janna Horsburgh

Head Nurse

I was born, therefore I am

Sadly this is all I can tell you cause Gwen dared me. Just kidding.

Completing my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2008, I've enjoyed every gross, amazing and sad moment of this brilliant job and wouldn't give it up for the world. Which is just as well because of the menagerie I have (child inclusive) at home.


I'm sure everyone who comes to TVH would recognize Janna, what you may not know is that as you can tell from the above blog, has a quirky sense of humour.(ed)

Paige Scarce


I grew up in a town at the foothills of the Snowy Mountains. I always had animals growing up and wanted to work in the veterinary industry. I completed Certificate III in Animal Studies in 2015 and Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing at the end of 2016. 


I have a Jack Russell called Skeeta who keeps me entertained and a 3 legged Lab x Kelpie who lives with my parents. I love working at TVH and love helping all our patients and clients.

Grace Potter

I am so lucky to be doing a job I love.

I have always had dogs in my life. Currently we have two Maltese/Shih Tzu crosses, Rippa and Rita (You may see them on the TV at reception)

I treat each patient as if they were one of mine and try to make their stay with us as positive as possible.

That's it - I'm off to Ecuador! (temporarily)

Hi, my name is Suzanne and I grew up in the veterinary industry. My dad was a vet and every chance I got I would go out working with him. In 2010 I started working reception at the Animal Emergency Centre in Fyshwick, it wasn't long before I started nursing. I have completed Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. It has been the best decision I have ever made, I thoroughly enjoy working with animals. I currently share my life with two beautiful cats and a very cheeky three legged rabbit.
