Patient Care Assistant Team Leader
Ariana is the Lead Patient Care Assistant at The Ralph. In a career that spans 30 years, Ariana has worked and trained in a range of animal care areas including charities, primary care and referral practices, and education facilities.
Ariana’s passion for animals started at an early age. She volunteered for a well-known charity when she was thirteen. From there, she went on to undertake qualifications and training in Environmental Conservation. This was followed by a National Diploma in Animal Management, a Foundation Degree in Animal Science and Teacher Training in Further Education. She is currently undertaking an Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour. She also hopes to undertake additional learning in animal behaviour.
Outside of work, Ariana is part of a parliamentary group aiming to change Animal Welfare laws. She is also trained and qualified in counselling skills. Aside from her love of animals, she is a qualified balloon decorator, ‘tries’ to play the ukulele and is an amateur oil-paint artist.
