Simone is a qualified social worker with a difference!
Whilst her profession has an emphasis on working with people, it is her passion for animals which drives her. From an early age, Simone recognised the importance the presence of an animal can have on a person's life and the multiplicity of benefits pet ownership brings.
As a result, Simone began her pet career employed at a local pet store which allowed her the opportunity to develop a wealth of knowledge about the pet industry. A move into animal health saw Simone work as a vet nurse before a practical assignment in her social work course lead her to develop a program whereby she recruited and trained volunteers to assist the elderly to care for their pets. She did so with an aim to decrease the number of pets being surrendered by elderly owners and to promote the healthy benefits of pet ownership.
The satisfaction she gained from establishing the program lead her to seek qualifications in "Animal Assisted Therapy". Simone's career in social work then saw her working in a large hospital in the field of aged care which allowed her to further gain an overall perspective in the field of animal assistance for the elderly.
Quite clearly Simone's belief in the importance of animal companionship and her experience in the animal industry has lead her to develop "The Pet Loo" which aims to assist people of all calibres in their role of pet ownership.
Simone was driven towards social work as it is in her nature to want to help - both people and animals.
