Meet The Team
Growing up on my Dad’s ginger farm on the Sunshine Coast, I was always surrounded by animals including deer, kangaroos, cows, birds and plenty more wildlife. It was here that my family pets taught me the unique and strong bonds you can form with animals: Ginger (a very creative name for a ginger cat on a ginger farm), Bonnie the Golden Retriever, and later Madge (short for Magic) the black Labrador. After graduating from high school, I enrolled in the Bachelor of Veterinary Technology degree at the University of Queensland Gatton Campus to further pursue my desire to work with animals. Since university, I worked at Greencross Kawana Waters before making my way down to Brisbane to experience city life. My passion to give animals a gold standard of care continues to grow, and I look forward to building many strong relationships with both clients and their pets. I currently live with my partner’s cat Tigger who I now consider my fur son. Some of my hobbies and interests include playing guitar and piano, listening to music, and of course watching funny cat videos.
My perfect day is being around cats and dogs! And that is my usual day! I love to work with animals and help them as much as it is possible. I am originally from Russia where I gained my vet qualification and 3 years of experience with small domestic animals. I spent a summer to USA for my internship program at UNI time. In 2013 me and my husband decided to move over to Sydney and in 2017 we continued our adventures and crossed the NSW boarder through to Brisbane and I adore this city. I am very interested in animal behavior and pet nutrition that can help your fur baby to recover much faster. Since I was 5 year old I have always had cats and dogs in my family. Now I am a proud owner of 2 cats Yoda the girl (yes, I know it is boy’s name) and Dobby the boy. And 1 sweetest Whippet girl Ulla 😉 I truly enjoy spending my time after work with them. At my free time I love to go to the gym, catching up with friends, swimming and cooking. In future I would like to pass the National Vet examination to continue in the Veterinary career.
