Shandelle Watson - Veterinary Nurse


(Cert IV Veterinary Nursing)

Delle has been a friendly face around Port Vet since 2015. She started her animal career adventure as a volunteer of the Port Macquarie RSPCA shelter where she completed her certificate 2 in Animal Studies. She then worked at several different veterinary clinics in the Newcastle area whilst completing her certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing at Kurri Tafe, before joining the Port Vet family. 

Delle has a keen interest in all aspects of surgical nursing, especially orthopaedics. She also enjoys pathology and has a keen passion and interest in behaviour and training. She has a keen desire to learn more about cytology. 

Delle has also worked within the animal care section at Wauchope TAFE campus and enjoys helping new baby nurses learn the ropes of the industry to help become the future of the veterinary industry. 

Delle owns an anxious, sensitive yet goofy, Hungarian Vizsla, named Mavrik, who she absolutely adores! Delle also owns a feathered friend, named Zuki. He is a very cheeky and LOUD Alexandrine parrot! 

In 2022, Delle and Matt welcomed their first child, Abe.

In her spare time Delle enjoys anything outdoors- beach, kayaking, 4wding, camping and fishing. She also enjoys watching motor racing and driving the odd go-kart every now and then.
