One of Alberto’s personal projects is the application of 3D printing to the development of custom made orthopedic implants. Other academic interests include research in robotics, artificial intelligence, reptile behaviour, and, just to keep his head above the clouds, astrobiology.
When not performing looking after patients, or coding, Alberto can be found practicing Shaolin Kempo with his beautiful wife Danielle, playing with his kids building Star Wars Lego models, riding motorcycles, or getting bucked off horses.
Dr Danielle was born and raised in Hawaii. After graduating from High School, she moved with her family to Texas for college and then veterinary school. After graduating from Texas A&M Veterinary College, Dr Danielle completed a 1 year internship in Florida. In the last 10 years Dr Danielle has worked as a General Practitioner at various private practices across the US gaining invaluable experience in all aspects of veterinary medicine.
For Dr Danielle’s latest adventure, she moved to Australia with her husband, 2 energetic boys, and soon her Norwegian Fjord horse that keeps her busy. Danielle’s professional interests include internal medicine, surgery, and ultrasonography.
In her free time she loves going to the beach, horseback riding, hiking, and anything outdoors. Dr Danielle’s favorite dogs are Golden Retrievers.
Ever since Melina was little, she has been surrounded by animals, whether they be cats and dogs or horses and cattle. Melina grew up on her family’s cattle farm just outside of Yandaran enjoying the country air and getting her hands dirty. She knew from an early age she was destined to have a career in the animal industry. Since starting with Greencross Vets over a decade ago, Melina has completed her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and accumulated years of experience in the industry. Melina is an excellent mentor, who also spends her time overseeing the training of our trainee and intern nurses.
Melina is a pet parent to several animals including 2 Kelpie X, Turbo and Dotti, 2 horses Highlander and Marvin, and a cat, Boots. When Melina’s not in the clinic, she enjoys spending time with her family taking trips to the beach or out on the boat fishing and crabbing.

Nikki has always had a love for animals, growing up she could always be found taking any chance possible to be around them, this is probably because Nikki grew up with dogs, cats and horses. She joined the Greencross Vets Barolin clinic over a decade ago, completing her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing, then progressed into a management role.
During her time away from the clinic Nikki enjoys spending time with her family, including her 2 human children and her 2 fur babies, Skye and Winston.
