I have been practicing in both mixed and small animal private practice since graduating from Sydney University in 2012. My love of horses is what initially drew me into the profession but I now satisfy that passion through owning a young dressage horse called Flora. Helping owners learn how to best care for their pets at home, particularly through advising on nutrition and preventative health care, is something that gives me great pleasure. I love nothing more than to watch a puppy or kitten grow into a healthy adult with our care and guidance along the way!

I grew up and studied in beautiful New Zealand, and although Sydney is now my home, I will always be a Kiwi at heart! I started practicing over 10 years ago now (time flies!), and worked in New Zealand, rural U.K, and London before settling in Sydney 5 years ago. My focus and passion for much of my career has been small animal medicine, and I have a special interest in everything feline! I love my patients and clientele at Double Bay Vets and feel grateful and proud to work at a clinic where I can offer the best of care.
I am currently completing my Masters in Veterinary Medicine, I love learning almost as much as I love animals.
I have two lovely moggies (in this country!!) called Polly and Eliza and recently fulfilled a childhood dream of owning my own pony! When I'm not busy with work or study I can usually be found with my pony Gidget or dreaming up my next travel plans with my partner Pete.

I’m a UK registered veterinary nurse and I’ve been in the nursing industry since 2006. I always knew I wanted to work with animals since a small child making mud pies with worms! When I finished school I did a Diploma in Animal Management which enabled me to do work experience in my first vets and grooming as a part time job. This is what made me decide to do nursing as a career. Once I finished my course I got an apprenticeship with a vet clinic and they sent me to Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons to study. My partner and I moved to Sydney in September 2015 so he could be with his family and so I could further my career. I love my job and I’m so grateful that what was once a hobby as a child has become my everyday job.
I am an organisational freak so being head nurse has worked out well! My favourite part of nursing is assisting with surgery and learning/seeing new and strange things. In my spare time me and my partner go to the beach and enjoy spending time with friends and family.

Before I fulfilled my dream of becoming a veterinarian, I spent many years practicing as a human physiotherapist both in Australia and the UK. Even whilst working in a human hospital I couldn’t resist the pull of the animal kingdom, and soon found my weekends and holidays filled with various wildlife rescue and rehabilitation projects. In 2011 I even traveled to rural Zimbabwe to spend a month working in a lion sanctuary! Shortly afterwards I decided to make working with animals my full time job, and completed my veterinary degree at the University of Sydney in 2016.
Despite a love for animals of all kinds, my real passion is cats (big and small!)
On arriving home from a long day at the clinic, I enjoy nothing more than snuggling up to my very own “living-room lions”, Frankie (10) and Miles (8).
