Dr. Stephen Bennett
Stephen graduated from the University of Melbourne at the end of 2017 and commenced his career in the Gippsland region at the beginning of 2018: working predominately in dairy cattle work. He then moved more centrally in the region to get a greater breadth of experience with both small animals and equine work.
Originally from East Melbourne, he eventually decided to move back closer to friends and family, and has a particular fondness for the Williamstown region – with the close proximity of delicious beaches, restaurants and peaceful serenity.
In his spare time, Stephen enjoys audiobooks, listening to podcasts on roadtrips and attending to his younger (furry) brother, Harlow.
Glynis is our newest addition to Greencross Vets Point Cook! She is a Qualified Veterinary Nurse since 2012, and has 7 & 1/2 years of experience in private practice before joining Greencross Vets. She is talented in all tasks in clinical practice particularly office administration, general pet health/advice as well as surgical and anaesthetic monitoring.
Glynis has a large menagerie consisting of 2 cats (Sasuke & Kion), 4 guinea pigs (Pipsqueak, Pan, Butters & Toast), a rescue dog Mick (who thinks he’s human) and the newest addition to the zoo is Tessa, an american staffy puppy – who only seems to pick up bad habits from Mick!

I graduated in Italy in 2002 and successfully passed the NVE in 2008, which enabled me to register as a vet in Australia. I worked for nearly one year in England before starting my career in Australia. I have gained experience in medicine, surgery and emergency & critical care. I have worked and still do the odd shifts at the Emergency Centre at Univet as I like the challenging cases. I joined the team at Greencross Williamstown in 2018 and I love working with my colleagues.
I have 2 young children, who keep me very busy. I love cooking, good food and being physically active.

Hi! My name is Bronte.
I have recently joined the wonderful team here at Greencross Vets Williamstown.
In 2018 I began as a work placement student at Greencross whilst studying my certificate IV in veterinary nursing, during which i was offered a position as a trainee vet nurse in 2019.
My love for animals began as a child when I volunteered at an animal sanctuary, where I realised my passion to improve the health and well-being of animals.
I have since completed my certificate II in animal studies and wish to further my studies within the industry, following the completion of my certificate IV in veterinary nursing.
I have a senior ginger cat named Rufus, who I rescued in 2014, and I would love to add a canine friend to the family in the future.
Hope to see you in the clinic soon!
Hi! My name is Robyn, I joined the amazing team at Greencross vets Williamstown in late 2017 after completing Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. My overwhelming passion for animals and their welfare has been a major aspect of my life since childhood. I aspire to complete further studies in Veterinary Nursing specifically focusing on medicine and surgical aspects. I strive to deliver the best possible care for you and your gorgeous fur-babies, can’t wait to meet all of you in the clinic! At home I have a cheeky kitty called Cookie who loves running up and down stairs all night! and a family Maltese X Pomeranian called Princess, she lives up to the name! In the future I would love to bring a canine family member into the mix. In my spare time I love reading, going on adventures around Melbourne and spending time with family and friends
Hi my name is Carla and I joined the Greencross family early 2018. I have been a qualified vet nurse for 8 years now and have loved every minute of it! Animals have always been my passion so being able to turn that into my career has been very rewarding.
At home I have 2 delightful little doggos, Mia who is a Border Collie and Simon who is a little bit of everything. In my spare time you’ll find me out on adventures with the pups, out riding my horse Ty, or down by the beach in Williamstown.
I look forward to my future with Greencross and can’t wait to meet you and your fur babies!
My name is Jackson and I am one of the more recent additions to Greencross Vets Williamstown. Having always possessed a passion for animals, being presented with the opportunity to volunteer at Greencross in year 10 was simply too good to pass up. This eventually led to being offered a part-time position and for me doing something I love, something that a lot of people my age aren’t lucky enough to be able to say. I hope that experiences I gain here will provide me with the skills and knowledge to pursue a career in the Veterinary Industry. At home I have 3 lovely pets a black labrador “Zing” and a pair of Tonkinese “Ziggy” and “Zsa Zsa”.
Hi, my name is Jade. I have been at Greencross for 4 years. I started out as a work placement student back in 2014 and was then offered a position as a Trainee Vet Nurse. I have always had a passion about animals and have always wanted to work with them in some way. It wasn’t until I had had my two children that I decided to follow my dreams. I have been enjoying my time at Greencross, and meeting all the clients and their fur babies.
Aside from being a busy working mum, I also have two cats and a budgie. Their names are Axyl, Frankie and Rio.
Hi my name is Krystal and I am a new addition to the fantastic team at Greencross Vets in Williamstown. I completed my high school work experience here in 2005, but I decided to take a different career path after year 12. However, after a few years, i realised that working with animals is my true passion. I volunteered here for a short time before i got a job as a cattery attendant/trainee nurse, which I love! I’m learning new things everyday and it is great to have hands on experience while studying for my Certificate II in Animal studies. The next step is to complete my Certificate IV in Vet Nursing which I am very excited about. I love working with these great people and we all have the same goal which is to look after and help your precious pets. I love coming home to my gorgeous pure white domestic cat, Charlee – she is so cheeky and has a wonderful, friendly personality. I also have a turtle, Mercury and a cockatiel, Yoshi who are both crazy, adorable characters!
Hello! My name is Lucas and I started in the clinic as a volunteer to understand the world of Veterinary Medicine. I have now started working at the Clinic in the cattery and assisting in the hospital when required. I am currently studying at Melbourne University hoping to become a vet in order to give assistance to animals in need. I have a strong passion for all types of animals – especially my golden Labrador Zeus who I love spending time with.
In 2014 I started work placement at Greencross Williamstown while completing my certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing, and in 2015 I was offered a position as a trainee veterinary nurse that I delightfully accepted! Before starting my career in veterinary nursing I completed my Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Biotechnology and, as much as I did love studying science, I found that upon completion of my honours, my passion had faded. I came to realise I had a strong passion for being around animals and the prospect of working with them is what turned my focus to studying the certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. I have not looked back since and I am loving every minute of being the Head Vet Nurse at our clinic! At home I have three very cheeky cats, Frankie, Henry and Storm, which are never far from my side and my household would not be the same without them! In my spare time, you will either find me at bootcamp or the gym training, or out exploring the world!

Hi, my name is David and I have just recently joined the team at Greencross Vets in Williamstown as a Cattery Attendant. I am enjoying being a cattery attendant and spending time with the animals I care for. I have successfully completed a Certificate 2 in Animal Studies at The Gordon Institute in Geelong (2015), and I am currently completing a Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services at Box Hill Tafe. I have several pets of my own, 3 dogs named Ace, Leo and Jett, and 2 cats named Matilda & Maggie. I have also owned birds, rabbits and fish as pets in the past. I hope that the experience I gain here will lead me further into the Animal Care Industry.
