I graduated from University of Queensland School of Veterinary Science in 1996 with first class honours. Since graduating I have worked in many practices including a small animal/equine practice Victoria before traveling and working in Hong Kong and then the United Kingdom to work in small animal practice for many years. Upon return to Australia I worked as a locum in emergency practice at University of Melbourne and later a large inner city small animal practice in Melbourne before venturing back to Brisbane.
I have now worked at Yeronga Veterinary Surgery since 2012 and have had the privilege to work with a great team of vets, nurses and receptionists and other support staff to provide a high standard of care to the pet owning community.
Over the past 22 years I have continued with my education doing multiple Sydney University distance post graduate courses in small animal internal medicine, small animal surgery and most recently thoracic and abdominal radiology. I have also done many smaller courses, conferences and seminars in small animal anaesthetics, analgesia, trauma, emergency medicine and dentistry just to name a few, to keep my knowledge and skills up to date.
Outside of work I am kept very busy with my husband and 2 daughters often enjoying various equestrian pursuits the hobby we all share. We also enjoy being active outdoors bushwalking and camping when we can. As far as our extended family goes we adopted two kittens through the Yeronga Kitten Adoption program and have named them Jemima and Tiddles and of course our 3 horses Dash, Sassy and Archie.
I look forward to meeting you at the clinic and working with you to keep your pets as healthy as possible so they can enjoy a high quality of life.
