Karli has over 20 years experience as a qualified vet nurse working at many small animal and referral hospitals within Sydney, including Sydney University Veterinary Teaching Hospital where she worked within the Anaesthesia Department. She has also spent 10 years on and off working at a variety of hospitals including the RSPCA in the UK. Karli’s greatest achievement was working in China for 3 years for an animal welfare organisation looking after the welfare of companion animal as well as rescued bears from the bile trade. During this time she was part of a team that rescued 10 Asiatic black bears from a bile farm in a Chinese Province. This was also made into a documentary movie called Cages of Shame. She continues to be very passionate about the organisation (Animals Asia) where she adopted a local street dog called Marv. Marv became a well travelled pooch and an Australian resident whom followed Karli back to Australia with her. Karli is local to the Alexandria area so can often be found with her husband and two rescue cats (Billy & Emma) and the foster fur kids in one of the near by parks, especially enjoying a dog walk around Sydney Park.

I have been a Veterinarian for more than 25 years. In this time I have worked with a variety of animals both large and small. From vaccinating Bengal tigers, castrating camels to caring for loved pet cats and dogs. I have a strong interest in both medicine and surgery. I have a passion to help resolve the problems and illnesses you may have with your pets. Over the years I have been blessed to work in hospitals where I have seen many interesting cases and have helped many families. I enjoy getting to know my clients and their families and watching their pets grow and to help them through all their stages of life. Over the last couple of years I have also been honoured to be invited to teach the Veterinary students at the University of Sydney. I have always wanted to give back to Veterinary Science. This career has been so good to me. To help support and encourage our future vets and to have even a small effect on how they develop is something that has been so fulfilling to me. I look forward to continuing this relationship with the University of Sydney. Greencross has been very supportive in encouraging me to do this. I also believe you need to enjoy what you are doing and enjoy working with the people around you. I have been fortunate to be given this role as Veterinary Director where I get the chance to work with an amazing team who have the same values as me. To lead and support my team to grow professionally but also personally and also to provide a caring service to our clients and their pets. I look forward to meeting you and your pets.
Cindy has always had an interest in working with animals. She worked as a sales assistant in a pet store before starting her Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing and moving from pet store into clinic work. She worked in a Lidcombe vet clinic prior to joining the Greencross Alexandria team in 2017. Since then, she has been able to grow her skills significantly with the help of the experienced and close knit team. Cindy is a retired show mouse breeder and former show mouse exhibitor having won multiple awards for her furry little friends at mouse shows, including at the annual Royal Easter Show. When she is not at work, she is home tending to her mice or cuddling with her Pomeranian, Teenie. Teenie is a familiar face at the clinic and enjoys the abundance of love and attention she receives from everyone!
I graduated from The University of Queensland in 2017 with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science (hons). I moved down to Sydney with my partner and started working with Greencross in January. I decided to become a vet because of my love for my two border collies but since commencing my degree I have definitely become a cat lady! I am really enjoying meeting all the lovely clients that come into the clinic and being able to help their pets. This clinic is a great place to work, with a wonderful caring and genuine team.

I have always been passionate about pets, having worked in the veterinary industry for over seven years. I graduated from The University of Sydney in 2010 completing a Bachelor of Veterinary Science and have worked for a number of clinics throughout Sydney over the last few years. I am passionate about learning new skills and my veterinary interests range from treating challenging medical cases through to soft tissue surgery. I also particularly love treating our feline friends! Working as a vet is a privilege and there’s nothing more rewarding than being able to help a patient improve their health and wellbeing, which is particularly challenging when they cannot speak and tell us what’s wrong! At home I have a beautiful rescue cat named Viola and when I’m not in the clinic, you’ll find be supporting local animal welfare organisations such as the World League for Protection Of Animals and Sydney Fox Rescue.
