Justyna Macherzynska

I have always loved working with animals since helping out on my relatives farm at home in Poland as a young child. I moved to the UK in 2003 and started working in a veterinary practice, training to become a vet nurse in 2008. I qualified as a registered veterinary nurse, and moved to Richmond Vets in October 2012 having worked in my previous practice for over 4 years.

I really enjoy my job and special areas of interest include dental care, nutrition and running nurse clinics. I also enjoy learning about animal behaviour and this is an area in which I want to pursue future training and development. Outside of work I love horseriding and am a keen cyclist, but also enjoy less active hobbies such as sculpture, drawing and painting. At present I do not have any pets of my own, but hope to adopt a rescue cat in the very near future.
