Jo Oakden RVN

Since graduating from the RVC in 2008 I have worked in a variety of small animal and mixed veterinary practice. I have taken a year to work as a locum RVN, giving me an insight into a wide range of practices and their staff. Since qualifying I have completed the Certificate in Feline Nursing and a Certificate in Canine and Feline Veterinary Nutrition. I have two young children, and a small menagerie of animals at home that keep any ‘free’ time, busy.

I have worked with the BVNA as a regional Co-ordinator since 2014. I wanted to become more involved with supporting the professions progression and development; aiming to help improve the retention of our experienced RVN’s. I am passionate about our growing profession and think it is crucial for us all to be actively involved in shaping our future.
