As the child of renowned Coolum Dog training guru, Steve Dawson, Chynae spent many evenings in vet surgeries as his puppy preschool offsider or helping out on ovals full of patiently sitting and staying dogs on Saturday mornings. When it came to be choosing a career path, it was a no brainer for Chynae to combine her love for dogs with her passion for caring for others and become a vet nurse. 12 years ago, Chynae started her school-based cert in vet nursing at Noosa District Animal Hospital soon after it opened, working with Dr Alice and Dr Mark.
In a few short years, Chynae went from award winning “school based trainee of the year” to vet nurse team manager, guiding and co ordinating a team of 13 nurses, sharing her skills and passion, and teaching other nurses the art and science of being an intuitive patient advocate, dedicated to making each patient as comfortable, relaxed and secure as possible.
With Nalu now almost 4, and Bohana 1, Chynae is excited to revive her passion for patient care, and we are thrilled to have her on our team.
