Local vet nurse Rebecca Oddy has been named a finalist in the 2013 National Vet Nurse of the Year competition.
Rebecca was surprised to receive her finalist certificate after being nominated for the award by work colleagues and clients at the clinic.
‘‘I didn’t really know about the nomination, it was all a bit of a secret,’’ she said.
‘‘Then I received a certificate in the mail just before Christmas to say I was chosen as a finalist.
‘‘Thank you to the clients Maureen Billett and Marg Jarvis who wrote nomination letters.’’
Rebecca has worked at the Deniliquin Veterinary Clinic for seven years and completed her qualifications in 2010.
Fellow employee Lynda Danckert said Rebecca’s love of animals started at an early age.
‘‘She had her first pony at age five and followed onto a variety of cats, dogs, birds, horses and lambs now kept at her Racecourse Rd home,’’ Mrs Danckert said.
‘‘Her weekends are busy attending the many showjumping competitions with her team of horses.’’
Even though Rebecca didn’t take the final prize, Lynda said her selection as a finalist is a win in itself.
‘‘She will be an ambassador for the Deniliquin Vet Clinic at the awards, staying at the Gold Coast Sea World Resort with her fiancee Kevin (Hall),’’ she said.
‘‘Rebecca will also get to be a dolphin trainer for a day at Sea World, courtesy of Bayer Australia.’’
