I grew up on a farm south of Perth with dogs, cats, cattle, sheep, horses and poultry. I have always wanted to work with animals. I have a Bachelor of Animal Science in addition to my Veterinary degrees, and have worked in different clinics before joining Greencross Vets. I have an interest in behaviour from working with a dogs refuge home, and would like to increase my knowledge in behaviour as well as post operative rehabilitation. When I am not working, I love spending time with my children, Baris the dog, two cats and our flock of chickens.

Dr Hannah Beveridge
Dr Hannah is a 2002 Murdoch Graduate who has recently returned to Perth after recently calling Dorset, UK, home. Although she loves all aspects of being a general practitioner, her main areas of interest are major abdominal surgery and supporting new and recent graduates so they too can remain in the profession and love their job as she does.
Over the last 19 years she has worked in many clinics in both Australia and the UK and spent six months in 2020 as a Visiting Professor at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, St Kitts, West Indies.
When Covid-19 caused the staff at the local brewery to be furloughed, she and her partner Nick (a brewer) took over. She spent the remainder of 2020 working as a Drayman at the local brewery, delivering bottles and casks of beer throughout Dorset with her rescue German Shepherd Dog, Koda. Sadly, Koda passed away in September 2021. Hannah looks forward to settling back in to life in Perth and perhaps sometime in the future, welcoming another rescue German Shepherd into her home.
In her spare time she enjoys playing Polo, gardening, hiking, snowboarding and generally anything that takes her outside.
