Lisa Coppins

Vet Nurse

Lisa trained in Dunedin achieving her Certificate in Veterinary Nursing and a Certificate in Animal Care.  Lisa joined Vetlife Temuka from Alexandra, where she has spent most of her life after moving from Auckland with her family as a three year old.  She was educated at Dunstan High School, leaving with all the qualifications the school could offer.  Her year in vet nurse training in Dunedin added to a well-rounded education and set her course in animal care.  After taking a position in an Alexandra vet clinic, Lisa endeared herself to the canine community, running the town’s only puppy class for some years teaching both puppies and owners that good animal behaviour comes from love, patience and consistency in training.

Lisa enjoys the outdoors with her partner, particularly mountain biking.  She also paints and enjoys reading and cross-stitch.
