Originally from Dunedin, Larissa studied a diploma of Veterinary Nursing at Massey University, graduating in 2006. She spent the next 8 years working as a small animal nurse in the Manawhatu. Larissa has recently moved to Taupo (with her faithful old doggie companion, Kyla) to cover a fixed term position at VETPlus Taupo. She is thoroughly enjoying her time so far and is amazed at beautiful part of the country she now lives in!!!
