She spent two years travelling and working throughout the United Kingdom, where she worked in various clinics including working alongside medical and surgical specialists. She enjoys the variety of the veterinary profession and is interested in all aspects of small animal medicine and soft tissue surgery. Olivia has been a part of Greencross Vets team since her return to Australia in early 2020 and has joined the Greencross Vets Kenmore team as our Veterinary Director. She understands the importance of having a great bond with your local family vet and is wanting to build this friendship with the local community and their fur babies.
