BVNA Council Elects New Junior Vice-President
The British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA) is delighted to announce Wendy Nevins RVN as its new BVNA Junior Vice-President for 2017
BVNA council would like to congratulate Wendy, who will take up her new role on council with immediate effect. Wendy will take up the post as BVNA president from October.
Wendy started work as a trainee veterinary nurse in a small animal practice based in Surrey during 1991 and upon qualifying moved to Yorkshire; working in a large mixed practice. She left the practice as Head Nurse to have her first son and to also re-locate to Germany with her husband who worked in the Forces. Following a move to Devon and having had her second son, she started work at a two branch, small animal practice as a nurse, VN Assessor and then Practice Manager.
Wendy then moved to the North West in 2002 and worked as a nurse in a small animal practice, before becoming the VNAC Co-ordinator at Myerscough College. After four years there, Wendy then returned to practice as a part-time veterinary nurse, which enabled her more time with her sons.
In 2007 Wendy started working for Park Veterinary Centre, initially as the Nurse Manager, then as the Practice Manager. During this time, The Webinar Vet was born. Once this became established the practice was then sold and Wendy remained working there as the Head of Internet Operations. Wendy now works as a consultant and also as a locum veterinary nurse.
Wendy is delighted to be elected as the new BVNA Junior Vice President and said: “I am honoured to be elected as the Junior Vice President of the BVNA and looking forward to continuing with the great work that has been done by both Fiona and Sam over the last few years. I am certain that the BVNA has an exciting few years ahead – watch this space!”
Congratulating Wendy on her election, BVNA President Sam Morgan said: “Wendy was the first council member to run through our new selection panel devised by BVNA’s Advisory Committee. This makes the process transparent and provides clear reasons why Wendy is a worthy candidate for this role. I am delighted to welcome Wendy as Junior Vice President of BVNA and know she will bring great experience and enthusiasm to the role”
