Meet The Team
Growing up on a farm in Little River, working with animals is something I always knew I would do. I completed my Veterinary Nursing studies at the end of 2020, and was hired as a student while I completing my studies. I am now furthering my education and completing a Bachelor of Zoology as one day I wish to work with captive animals. At home I own two cats named Phoenix (in the photo with me) and Luna. I also have a Rottweiler X named Molly. In my free time I enjoy going for walks/hikes, watching movies and drawing/painting. I also have a Certificate II and III in Visual Arts.

I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and grew up in Cape Town. I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts from the University of Cape Town, majoring in painting. I then went on to study Veterinary Science at Onderstepoort Veterinary Institute at the University of Pretoria, finishing in 2016.
While at vet school I connected with my now husband, Adam. We dated for many years before marrying in 2017.
I completed my Compulsory Community Service year in Kwa-Zulu Natal working as a state vet and treating both large and small animals in under-privileged communities. I also coordinated mass sterilisation campaigns throughout the province. It was from one of these campaigns that I adopted my dog, Sophie.
From 2018, I was working in a large first opinion small animal private practice in Cape Town and in January 2020, I gave birth to my daughter, Asha. I am very proud that she is also an animal lover.
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors especially hiking and snorkelling. I will never say no to a run with my dog.
My passion is small animal medicine, surgery, and diagnostic imagery (especially ultrasound). I am inspired by the human-animal bond and am privileged to be a part of these very special relationships.

I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia and moved to Melbourne around 2009 to pursue my education. I graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Biomedicine with Honours from the University of Melbourne, majoring in Immunology. I then went on to continue my degree in Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the same University of Melbourne, finishing in 2017.
Since then, I spent 18 months working as a small animal GP vet at a private practice in Ringwood before the pandemic hit. Due to the changes in working conditions, I decided to pivot to a remote work opportunity as an online veterinarian consultant in one of Australian leading pet product company for 10 months. From this role, I gained more insights in terms of product knowledge and preventative health in the veterinary industry.
When not busy taking care of the fur-babies, I enjoy spending time with my friends and checking out new places to eat or travel to. I am also an avid badminton player and enjoy a jog in the park when the weather is nice. Currently in search of the perfect cat to adopt!
My passion is small animal medicine, behaviour and preventative health. I am inspired by the human-animal bond and am privileged to be a part of the journey together with the owners and their loved ones.
Tegan has always wanted to work in the Veterinary Industry, so it was no shock to anyone when she completed her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. Tegan has been lucky enough to work in Cairns, before returning home to Melbourne. At home, Tegan has three dogs and two cats, all who love to hog the couch, and 1one little human. When she has some spare time, you will find Tegan at the park or play centre with her son, sewing up beautiful creations, or relaxing on the couch with a book.
