Meet The Team
Hi, I am Laura and this is my gorgeous puppy Mylo. I am originally from Scotland but have proudly called Australia home for the past 8 years. Since I can remember, I have always had a passion for animals so the decision to make a career out of it was an easy one. GreenCross has given me the opportunity not only to work alongside extremely talented people but to also meet some great animals and their owners. When I am not in the clinic, you will usually find me at the beach or the boxing gym where I like to pretend I can box.
“Cesar has been a certified nurse since 2015. We were lucky to welcome Cesar to our Greencross Coogee- Maroubra clinic in October 2016. He is originally from Columbia where he graduated as a Veterinarian. He has been living in Australia for 5 years. His goal is to eventually get Veterinary certification in Australia. Cesar loves to cooperate and work as a united team. He has a strong passion for animal welfare and strives to provide a supportive, helpful and welcoming environment to our clients.
In his past time Cesar loves to play soccer. You will also find him on the dance floor where he is a very skilled salsa dancer.”

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.
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.
