Courtney is originally from New Zealand where she trained and qualified. She has been working as a veterinary nurse since 2007 and after working in a number of small animal clinics in New Zealand, an anaesthesia passion took her to a large referral hospital in Australia in 2015. In 2016 she moved to the United Kingdom, where she most recently had been working as an Anaesthesia Registered Veterinary Nurse at the Royal Veterinary College. Courtney is now a Clinical Specialist for Burtons Medical Equipment as an anaesthesia educator.

Courtney completed her Nurses Certificate in Anaesthesia in 2017 and is starting PgCert in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia through the University of Edinburgh.

Throughout her studies and career, she started Veterinary Anursethesia on various social media platforms to share anaesthesia tips. She has written a number of articles for journals and enjoys speaking to Student Veterinary Nurses and Registered Veterinary Nurses on all things anaesthesia.
