Madison was born and raised in Townsville and throughout her schooling life she frequently moved towns to Innisfail, Cairns, Mount Isa and back to Townsville. Her first veterinary experience was through school work-experience in 2013 with Townsville Vet Clinic for two weeks, it was from then on she knew that veterinary nursing was something she really wanted to do.
Upon completing high school she started studying animal health immediately at Open Colleges and completed her Certificate IV Veterinary Nursing qualification, with plans to continue her education particularly in the avian field. I gained work placement with James Cook University veterinary clinic where she gained experience caring for a variety of animals such as turtles, pelicans, snakes and bilbies.
Madison then joined the team at Greencross Vets Riverway, as a placement student in early 2019, which developed into employment. A team which she boasts is, ” A fantastic supportive team and look forward to further studies alongside the team”.
During my days off she can be found further educating herself, gardening, going fishing, if you have not noticed Madison is a I very outdoorsy person and likes to spend most of her time out in the sun.

Dr. Jason Germain
I grew up in London and from a young age always loved animals. At school I excelled in science, so it seemed only logical to combine my two loves and become a vet! I studied Veterinary Science at The University of Melbourne and after graduating worked in Mackay, then several locations in the UK and finally Townsville. I have extensive experience in medical case work-up and also love soft tissue surgery.
There are many things that I love about my job. Nurturing staff and empowering their growth is another exciting part of my job. I regularly attend further education courses to ensure we are practicing the very best medicine and surgery. Outside of work I love spending time with family and friends.

Leah was born and grew up in Somerset (South West), England before graduating from The Royal Dick Vet College, Edinburgh in 1997. After working in a rural practice for five years, Leah decided that a holiday was in order and spent 12 months working her way around the west coast of Australia. Having enjoyed this experience immensely, Leah decided to make the move permanent in 2003 and has been living in Townsville ever since. Leah enjoys all aspects of veterinary work but especially enjoys surgery, including stifle (knee) repairs, cutaneous reconstruction (skin grafting etc.) and eye repairs of all kinds.
Outside of work Leah enjoys spending time with her cat Cookie Monster. She also enjoy photography and white water kayaking, but her main love though is mountain biking. She loves the sport because it has taken her to many amazing places geographically and mentally, in the past she has completed at the competitions on local, state or national level as well as charity rides.
I grew up in a small town of Ayr and from a very young age I always wanted to work with animals. I started working in a Veterinary practice as a vet nurse when I left school and worked there for eight years full time and then five years part time.
I moved to Townsville with my husband and two children and started working for a business that specialised in Equine Products. It was seven years later that I decided that I wanted to come back to the where my passion is and that is the veterinary industry. I’m excited to be part of the team at Greencross Vets Aitkenvale and look forward to meeting you and your pets.
I have always been passionate about pets since I started as a School-Based Trainee at the end of 2013. Since completing my Certificate II, I was employed as a Veterinary Nurse and I am now excited to be completing my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing qualification. I love working in the veterinary industry, at times it can be demanding but is also very rewarding. Seeing a sick patient going home healthy and well always puts a smile on your face. I couldn’t imagine life without pets.
