Outside of her veterinary pursuits, Jayda is an avid lover of the outdoors and physical activities. She enjoys surfing, bouldering, and snowboarding, embracing the thrill and challenge they offer. Her quieter moments are spent reading and gardening, balancing her active lifestyle with more serene hobbies.

Jayda's initial connection with CAVH began as a volunteer, where she quickly fell in love with the team and their supportive nature. This experience cemented her desire to continue learning and growing within the veterinary field under the guidance of the CAVH team.

A lifelong resident of Dapto, Jayda has been part of the community since her early days, further strengthening her bond with the area and its residents.
