Originally from Darwin, Gen moved to Canberra as a child, and has always been interested in working with animals. She participated in the Junior Keeper program at the National Zoo and Aquarium, and after she graduated the program she became a volunteer at the zoo.
Once out of school she studied Vet Nursing, graduating in 2019. Gen’s interest in horses developed through working for some years with thoroughbreds with a local trainer at the Canberra Thoroughbred Park. She was welcomed to the Canberra Equine team in 2021, as an Equine Nurse.
Gen has 2 cats – Smudge and Archie, and 2 dogs – Letti and Quin. In her spare time she enjoys playing music and spending time in her garden. She is also a very, very good baker of cakes – much to the delight of her colleagues.
