Madi  - Turramurra Vet Nurse


Senior Vet Nurse

Madi joined our nursing team in 2021 with extensive experience in zoos and wildlife parks, including Taronga Zoo, Shoalhaven Zoo and Symbio Wildlife Park.

Her interest in pursuing a career in veterinary nursing began early on, with inspiration drawn from Steve Irwin’s, The Crocodile Hunter, followed by her enrolling in a Certificate II in Animal Studies while still at school, Certificate III in Captive Animals and then progressing to a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2016.

In addition to this, Madi’s love for all things great and small inspired her to complete a WIRES course then volunteering within the organisation to assist injured wildlife. Madi’s love for dogs lead her to be the official pet photographer at the Dog Lovers Show in 2017.

Madi was awarded the prestigious NSW Illawarra Adult Volunteer of the Year in 2020.

After growing up in Shellharbour, Madi moved to Hornsby in February 2021 to pursue her nursing career at Turramurra Veterinary Hospital, as well as continue her work with the Taronga Zoo Wildlife Hospital and Nutrition Centre.

Madi’s kind-hearted and gentle manner combined with her joyful, positive attitude, have made her a much-valued member of our nursing team, with her nursing interests including surgical nursing, dentistry and wildlife care.

Being an avid animal lover, Madi lives with Beardy, the Bearded Dragon, Bluey, the Blue-Tongue Lizard and owns a Spoodle called Lizzie.

Outside of work, Madi enjoys watercolour painting and helping others.
