Eden (Pet & Animal Care Tutor)

Eden loves animals and thought that The Career Academy would be the perfect place to help others grow their passion for animals as well. During her study at Unitec – Eden spent some time studying the fascinating behaviour of the baboons at Auckland Zoo. Fortunately, the other tutors at The Career Academy are both friendlier and better behaved, and she loves the community spirit around the office.

Of course, it’s the students that make it worth getting up in the morning. ‘It’s awesome when students add their own experiences to their assignments,’ and she especially loves to hear the stories about people’s pets.

When the last assignment is marked, Eden relaxes with horse riding and reading (but thankfully not at the same time).

Rachel (Pet & Animal Care Tutor)

Rachel has over 20 years’ experience in the animal industry. She has owned her own grooming and training business and worked in a number of veterinary clinics throughout Melbourne. She has trained and been a mentor for many people who wished to learn to become professional dog groomers. Rachel is all about positive handling techniques and loves to see people succeed and follow their passion for working with animals.
