TAH Night Vet – Janine Volschenk

Becoming a veterinarian was never really a deliberate choice I made, it was just something I knew since I was a little girl – a childhood dream that finally became true. I’m truly blessed!

I grew up in Vredenburg on the beautiful West Coast and matriculated from Vredenburg High School in 2004. I obtained my BSC Veterinary Science degree in 2007 and qualified from Onderstepoort in 2011. I’m starting off my career at TAH this year and I’m honoured to be a part of such a great team.

In this short time as a night vet and dealing with emergencies, I have realised how short life can be and that we really need to make the most of every moment and opportunity. For me, that is being in the veterinary field. I want to work hard and gain as much experience as possible in every aspect of my job, becoming the best vet I can possibly be. I also think it is very important to have a good balance between work and my personal life.

I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, reading a good book, playing and watching sports, listening to music and playing a bit of guitar. I would love to start hiking, cycling and learn how to surf.
