This week we’re chatting to Jessica Joosse AKA nutritionrvn! 

Jessica graduated with her Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Biosciences from La Trobe University in 2016 and went on to complete her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2018. She became one of the first few AVNAT Registered Veterinary Nurses in 2019 and obtained Accreditation in 2020. 

We discuss her career progression in veterinary medicine, working in every role from Animal Attendant up to Practice Manager, and her mother’s positive influence on her career choice to go from being a vet to a vet nurse.  

She also shares some personal stories with us about what gave her an interest in animal nutrition, how her blog came to be and the power of using social media to get the right information to people who need it.

Jessica also provides some recommendations as to how pet owners can make an informed decision about their pets food (which is summarised in her 60-Second CPD). She also explains what would she like to do in the future and how she hopes that food safety regulations will be improved in Australia to prevent situations like the recent horsemeat scandal.
