About Us

Kim

with Boo
Manager

Kim grew up in a veritable menagerie, playing owner to a dog, cats, rabbits, finches, quails, betta fish and freshwater turtles. She completed her Bachelor in Entertainment Management from the Australian Institute of Music in 2011 and went on to work at various record labels. But it was her love of felines that lead her to volunteer at the Cat Protection Society for just short of two years. During her time spent there, she was so inspired to break into the industry that she obtained a Certificate II in Animal Studies.

    Her lucky break came when she was offered a position as a trainee veterinary nurse, and promptly enrolled in her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. Kim nursed for two and a half years at several different clinics before being given the opportunity to co-manage our cat boarding facility. She prides herself on caring for the particularly anxious or shy guests. She is a doting cat parent to her 2-year-old rescue domestic medium hair Atticus and Burmese kitten Boo, whom she’ll surely tell you about and might even show you a picture or two. You can always bet she has a foster kitten on the go too, and her other passions include record collecting and photography. 

Nick

with Bella
Animal Attendant

Nick has worked with Balmain Veterinary Hospital as an Animal Attendant for the past two years. An animal lover since birth, Nick has two Border Collies Red and Nelson, who swoon at his feet and listen attentively whenever he speaks. He trained each dog and the locals all comment on how well behaved they are. Nick has had cats in the past….

    Nick has been working since he left Glebe High (now Blackwattle Campus), 23 years ago. He's also a long time Inner Westie and known to many for his entertaining personality and his love of life. Never shy to comment, Nick has a very vocal relationship with the cats boarding at the hospital and often reports on his "interesting" conversations.

    Nick loves working with the cats in our boarding. Nick thinks cats are very entertaining and loves playing with the all the boisterous cats with string toys. All our cats love to run up and say hello to Nick – which he loves when they rub against his legs and give him head-butts.

    Nick loves working with the team at Balmain Vet and is a social butterfly around our halls. The vet hospital is Nick's dream job, though he still harbours ambitions of working with the wilder animals found in Africa where he has been on safari on two occasions.

Katherine

with Scallywag
Animal Attendant

After graduating high school in 2016, Katherine has pursued her passion for design at the University of UNSW studying a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture Honours. Katherine’s ability to communicate with people and animals is a key attribute to her hardworking behaviour and positive attitude for years she has been working with the Balmain Vet team. She is a proud owner of her birds Buddy, Loo Loo and Rocky.

    Katherine’s interest in wildlife conservation and the impact of climate changes on animals is something that she hopes she can become involved in through volunteering in the near future.
