I have been at Yeronga Vet Surgery since 2001 when I came back to work part time after having my first child. I am a longterm local having grown up in Fairfield and graduated from the UQ vet school, then based at St Lucia, in 1992. My first job was in a mixed, rural practice in Corowa NSW for several years before moving to England to locum and travel. My husband and I met in Chesterfield and made the decision to move back to Australia, and my family home, to raise our family.
In 2006, my husband Nigel and I the opportunity to buy the surgery in it’s original form, a tiny worker’s cottage where clients were sometimes able to peek their heads around our reception desk and see what was happening in surgery! Things have changed quite a lot since then as we’ve doubled the size of the building and grown our family of staff.
I enjoy all aspects of general practice, and am excited about the progress veterinary medicine is making allowing our pets to live longer, healthier lives!
I have always loved animals and currently have a stumpy tailed cattle dog, 3 cats, 2 horses, 4 chickens, a cockatiel and 2 goldfish.
