Darlene Henderson-Jones

Certificate II in Animal Studies

An enormous love and respect for animals inspired Darlene to start her vet nursing career at CHVH in June of 2006 and she’s never looked back. Straight into the study she gained her Certificate II in Animal Studies and attended many courses including Dog Grooming and Puppy Training.

Being a vet nurse has allowed her to fulfil her dream of providing support and care for animals of all shapes and sizes. With a collection of qualifications under her belt, including Painter & Decorator & Art Teacher, she’s useful in more ways than one and brings a diverse approach to everything she does. While her gorgeous (and cheeky!) Beagle “Lennie” keeps a smile on her face, all the many and varied patients who come and go through the doors of CHVH inspire her to learn more and more and continue to raise social awareness about the importance of having animals in our lives.
