Jeanet trained in Christchurch and worked a few years starting with psychiatric nursing then moving into theatre.
She did her overseas trip and while travelling based herself in London. Here she honed her theatre nurse skills. When she returned to NZ in 1992 she moved to Queenstown and was employed at QMC as a practice nurse in 1993.
Jeanet has an interest in A&M, theatre and endoscopy.
As many others have also done, she chose Queenstown to live for the lifestyle and outdoors.
