The daughter of a diplomat Maeve grew up in many different countries from Africa to North America before returning to settle in Dublin. Independent of geography she wasalways surrounded by animals and knew from an early age that she wanted to care for them. Whilst living in Tanzania Maeve rescued a young Bushbaby – a small primate and nursed him back to full health before returning him to his natural habitat.
Maeve did work experience in Clontarf Veterinary Hospital as a transition year student and it was at this time she adopted her cat Misty who is now the grand old age of eighteen. Maeve also has a cat Max, whom she hand reared from three weeks of age after he was abandoned in a plastic bag on the doorstep of Clontarf Veterinary Hospital. Following on from her transition year, Maeve was employed by Clontarf Veterinary Hospital as a veterinary nursing assistant during her summer holiday for a number of summers before starting work full time in 2006. Maeve then enrolled in the University College Dublin Veterinary nursing course graduated from UCD in 2012 with a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing and is now a Registered Veterinary Nurse.
Over the years Maeve has successfully hand reared many orphaned kittens. Despite the hard work and night feeds she gets great satisfaction watching them grow and finding good homes for them. Maeve enjoys all aspects of veterinary nursing but has a particular interest in surgical nursing. She loves to run, and is a keen horse woman and qualified riding instructor who enjoys nothing better than to get away at the weekend to go on trail rides.
