I graduated from Murdoch University in 1999 with my vet degree. Since then I’ve worked at various small animal hospitals both in Perth and Melbourne for eight years before taking time off to be a full time mum. I returned to the profession in 2015 and joined the Ocean Reef team in July 2016. So far I’m enjoying every minute of my journey. I love being part of a great team and having the opportunity to provide help and care to our furry (and occasionally feathered) friends. Outside of vetting I love sewing, playing the piano, and looking after my brood.

I’m Perth-born and raised and graduated from Murdoch Uni in 2004 with a keen interest in small animal medicine. I’ve worked at a number of clinics around Perth as well as working for Greencross in Melbourne for 3 years. I absolutely love being a vet! I think our pets enrich our lives immensely and I feel privileged to be able to provide care to people’s pets to ensure they live long and happy lives together.
I started at Ocean Reef in March and am so excited to be part of the team. We are all so passionate about providing the best care to our furry friends and to have the hydrotherapy pool also is really special!
I have had three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and would have to say they are my favourite breed of dog! Earlier in my career I volunteered at Princess Margaret Hospital with my black and tan cavalier Lily. It was such an incredible experience to see how much Lily could brighten the kids’ days and provide them with some distraction from their illnesses. My favourite memory was meeting a little girl who had not been allowed to leave the hospital since birth and had never met a real dog. When she saw Lily she started making a “woofing” sound and was so delighted to be able to pat her and give her a cuddle.
At the moment we have a mixed-breed white fluffy called Sammy. She’s 14 years old, has had two knee reconstructions and it still going strong!
When I’m not working you will usually find me happily cooking, going to the movies or catching up with friends and family. My husband and I love spending time with our two little boys at the beach. Nothing soothes the soul like relaxing at the dog beach whilst watching my kids playing happily and Sammy playing with all her doggy friends!
