Georgia has been a vet nurse at Morwell since August 2015. She started out her career with animals by rescuing injured wildlife whilst studying at university: this is where she developed her passion for wildlife and emergency care. She started out at Greencross Vets Morwell as a work experience student in 2015. Georgia’s knowledge and love for reptiles means she is now seeing clients’ reptiles for nurse consultations. Her aim is to provide a local point for advice and husbandry care many reptile owners need. She has a small zoo of 13 snakes, 2 goannas, 2 lizards, axolotls, a cheeky cat named Nala and a rescue greyhound named Titan – which keep her very busy while she isn’t at work.

Lauren has been our trusted receptionist since February 2008. You will always find Lauren on our front desk more than happy to help out in any way that she can. She has built her reputation as being the face of our clinic and anyone who knows her trusts and loves her. If you come in with a new puppy or kitten, be prepared for Lauren to bombard you with information as she has a real passion for making sure pet owners have all the right information from the get-go, and for eliminating many common myths about pet care. She is our go-to for explaining and promoting our Healthy Pets Plus program. Anyone who comes to the clinic with a Cavalier puppy/dog is lucky to leave with them as this is Lauren’s favourite breed – she has a beautiful 6 year old Cavalier named Bella at home. Her passions have included netball, basketball and horse riding; however these have had to take a back seat to her more recent passion of being a mother to her beautiful son who came into the world in October 2016.
