Charlotte is a year 11 student who joined the Greencross team in late 2020 whilst completing a week of school work experience led by the incredible staff at the clinic. One of her life aspirations is to become a Veterinarian and help people keep their fur babies as happy and healthy as possible. Whilst she does not currently have any pets at home, adopting a high energy pup is definitely another life goal
Monica graduated with her Associates Degree in Veterinary Nursing in 2019. She enjoys every part of the job from greeting patients as they come through the door, to being beside them when recovering from an anesthetic. She believes that being a nurse you have to be brave and positive and show love towards every animal no matter how hard the job gets.
Monica owns a black and white Border Collie named Xena and a Murray River Short Neck turtle named Chip. She hopes to adopt more pets when she moves into her own house with her partner.
Tam has been a vet nurse for the last 8 years with experience in various clinics and shelters. Her passion lies in welfare and she hopes to one day have her own ranch where she can provide a safe haven for any animal that is in need from dogs, cats, chickens, ducks to pigs, cows, horses and lamas as she wants to help as many as she possibly can. She has 2 rescue cats at home, Skittles the sassy but skittish calico and Lynx the chilled and smoochy tabby.
Outside of work, she loves go-karting and going for long rides on her electric skateboard with friends. She’s a competitive rev head so anything to do with racing, she can’t help but push pedal to the metal. She also enjoys camping, being in nature, eating delicious food and hanging out with her friends.

Dr Jolene Attard
Jolene recently joined the Greencross Vets team and is looking forward to meeting the local communities pets and people. Her passion for animal care started early, she grew up locally in Preston with a menagerie of pets, as her parents were known to adopt many orphaned animals including stray cats and dogs, injured birds, an unwanted goose, guinea pigs and rabbits. These 2 rabbits were a simple male and female and quickly turned into 60 rabbits, of course, they were given away to new homes.
Since graduating from the University of Melbourne in 2006, she has had international experience and loves being a general practitioner, treating mainly dogs and cats, but also rabbits, guinea pigs, birds and rats. Jolene knows how much love animals bring into our lives and her favourite part of being a vet is supporting this relationship.
Outside of work, she has successfully combined her love of travelling with veterinary volunteer work at an elephant sanctuary in Thailand and a cat rescue program in Greece. Jolene loves art house and foreign film and is a volunteer at ACMI (Australian Center for the Moving Image).
Amy comes to us from the South of New Zealand and has a degree in Zoology from Otago University. She began with Warringal Greencross back in July of 2018 and has since completed her certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing. Her pet babies at home include cats Enzo and Pepsi, Labrador Jess, and hubby Hamish (also a staff member here at the clinic). She is highly passionate about wildlife conversation and loves spending her time off in the great outdoors.
I have always had a love for animals, and always had plenty of animals at home to look after.
I studied Chemistry in New Zealand and then moved to Melbourne in 2018 to attend Melbourne Veterinary School.
Currently in my second year of study I spend any spare time I have in the clinic getting to know the ropes and meeting all the pets and their owners.
At home, I am looked after by Pepsi and Enzo, my inseparable young rescue cats.
Dr Michael Righetti
Dr Michael Righetti
Dr Michael Righetti has a farming background (Greta in north eastern Victoria) and according to his late parents he didn’t contemplate any other occupation other than to be a Vet. His brother looked after the equipment and fencing on the farm, and he took care of the animals.
Dr Righetti has been caring for dogs, cats and other small animals for over 30 years and he’s still trying to convince his nurses that hes in his mid fourtys! And your pets are safe with Dr Righetti as a strict vegetarian he hasn’t eaten one for 30 years!!!!
Outside the Practice his loves are his wife and children,Molly the mutt (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel), golf, tennis, running (call that jogging!), the Melbourne Footy Club and outdoors (favorite areas Fraser Island and the Gibb River Road).
Dr Michael’s neurosis (or one of them!) in human and veterinary medicine is preventative medicine, and you will find this approach comes up all the time in managing patients.
Alice’s career started in 2006 working in a cattery before realising that Veterinary Nursing was the direction she wanted to travel.
