Ashton

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Ashton works mainly at our Bullsbrook clinic and has a long history in nursing. Her career began in 2008 working in a small animal clinic but her love for horses saw her transition to large animal nursing in 2012 for a few years before having a break from nursing all together.

Ashton wanted to return to nursing and applied for a nursing position here at Swan Valley Vets. During her time here, Ashton has shown true determination to be the best possible person she can. She is calm in stressful situations and loves having the ability to grow relationship and care for our inpatients. 

Outside of the clinic, Ashton rides horses and competes in both Show Jumping and Dressage. She has her best pal, Turbo, that keeps her on her toes by demanding daily walks to the park.
