Meet Team Currumbin
Dr Nicole McGuinness
Who is Nicole when she’s not being a vet?
Outside of work Nicole enjoys anything outdoors. You’ll find her most weekends out on her boat or relaxing at the beach. She is also a big AFL fan and has an obsession with old cats! She collects every old cat needing a new home! Nicole also loves family time and being with her son James.
In 2004, Nicole graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Microbiology. In 2009, she graduated from the University of Queensland again, with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science.
Nicole has a special interest and passion for feline medicine (she loves everything cat!). She’s a magnificent GP vet, dedicating her time equally between medicine and surgery. Due to her additional degree majoring in MicroBiology, she is often called upon for her opinion with ear and skin cases.
Who is Robyn when she’s not being a vet nurse?
When Robyn’s not working she’s driving her daughter to and from dance classes and performances (Dance Mom!). She enjoys spending time with her family including Roxy the Labradoodle, Jasper the Maltese X Shih Tzu & Jiminy Cricket the cat. To relax she enjoys getting lost in a good book or movie or binge watching shows on Netflix!
Robyn has a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing & has been nursing for 20yrs. Yikes!
Robyn enjoys all aspects of working in a veterinary clinic from reception to surgical nursing but has a soft spot for looking after the cats who are staying in the luxury boarding facility.
Who is Rebecca when she’s not being a vet nurse?
Rebecca enjoys gardening, reading and swimming. She also loves exploring, beach combing and bushwalking with her husband and two children. Rebecca loves to travel and spent many years backpacking around Central and South America as well as parts of Europe and Asia. Rebecca is passionate about animals and seems to have adopted a handsome cat called Cosmo – or rather, he’s adopted the family!
Rebecca has attained an NVQ Level 3 and 4 in Veterinary Nursing (the UK equivalent to Cert IV). She has been nursing for 15 years and has worked in many locations in the UK as well as Melbourne, Sydney and the beautiful Gold Coast!
Rebecca loves nurse clinics and advising owners on nutrition and geriatric care. She also has a passion for surgical nursing and dentistry.
