Dr Kathryn Owen
I graduated from The University of Queensland with a Batchelor of Veterinary Science (Hons) at the end of 2018 and was soon to accept my first graduate veterinarian position with Greencross. I am lucky enough to work between both the Varsity Lakes and Burleigh Waters clinics with two amazing teams of vets, vet nurses and reception staff. Currently, I am loving getting to know all the clients and their lovely pets and am passionate about helping them get better so they can return home to their families. I have always had an interest in small animal medicine but also love the challenge of emergency medicine. When not at work, I enjoy socialising with friends, heading to the beach to catch the morning sunrise and playing touch rugby league.

I graduated from the University of Queensland in 2017 and joined Greencross Vets soon after. I am originally from South Korea and passionate about all aspect of feline and canine medicine and general animal well-being. I find small animal internal medicine very interesting, but also enjoy the challenge in the surgical theatre. It is very rewarding to see when patients go home happy. When I am not at work I enjoy gardening, playing piano, catching up with close friends and spending time with my husband and feline companions, Coco, Mocha, and Toby. I also recently adopted an amazing Belgian Shepard boy, Tyron and cannot wait to explore this beautiful world together.
I’ve always been passionate about travelling and spent five years working overseas as a stewardess, where I explored new cities and had overseas adventures. However I missed the sunny shores of the Gold Coast and returned to pursue my other love, pets! I am passionate about preventative medicine and educating pet owners about how to be responsible. It’s a joy to come into work and take care of these furry family members and I look forward to getting my own pet soon!
