Dianne, All Species Nurse, has over 40 years of pet care experience and education (Certified Veterinary Technician-CVT- and Specialist). And, over 25 years as a Registered Nurse (RN) Specialist with a variety of experiences and education.
As a typical country girl, she was always surrounded by pets-and wild animals (she'd bring them home, rehabilitate, then release them back into the wild). She's lived on farms in Vermont and Canada, volunteered at shelters, and helped care for a variety of animals by assisting at a young age in the fieldwork for veterinarians.
She was a child prodigy in reading, writing, and many areas involving the arts. While this seems unrelated to medicine, it led her on a path to the passions she now demonstrates to this day in all pets and humans of all ages and their activities of daily living and medical care.
She wrote journals that involved the behavior of pets through a child's eyes. She never had it published, even when approached by a publisher, while she was in junior high. But, even though she denied that journey, she became heavily involved in her drawings and sculpting of pets and parents. She kept a few for her family and donated many to the town library.
Her side interest in politics introduced her awareness of the need for the rights of awareness for vulnerable populations of humans and animals. This bolstered her interests in the '80s which aided quality care for all, humans, animals, and even the environment.
For example; she wrote to the state of Vermont 10 years ago to the veterinarian, mayor, and governor of Vermont for the rights of moose and recognizing veterans!
She has been employed by veterinary hospitals for over 25 years, which treated animals anywhere from rats, and primates to horses. Her favorite species are chickens and wild birds. Then, of course, dogs and cats. Her interests grew to add giant tortoises, various types of lizards, snakes a tarantula, and yes...even a centipede and a scorpion.
Being employed within various departments of hospitals in human medicine made Dianne realize that the quality of care for humans was in great need and unique to each individual that others don't seem to see or recognize. A human is not a clock...even though many medical care professionals do provide the same quality of care, it is delivered within a short period of time per visit, which is why it is necessary for follow-up visits to your providers that allow nurses to provide ongoing assessments, consultations, and education for patients.
This is why the 'All Species Nurse' business is mobile. To fill in the in-between care to advocate for patients and their healthcare providers.
Mental illness, wound care and spirituality are her primary focuses on people.
