I was the kid that nurtured birds the cat caught, tried to free the mouse from our house and waded in to rescue a sick bird in Lake Taupo. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be a veterinarian and my determination only grew over the years. My beautiful Burmese Sesame was my first fur baby and a constant source of inspiration for 18 years.
My ideal clinic is one where strong relationships are built with the owners, where a high level of care is provided and where I would love to bring my own pets because all the patients are cared for as I would want my own treated. Naturally, I joined the team at The Strand Veterinarian in early 2013.
Dante, my beautiful big greyhound, is now the centre of my world and has instilled in me a great love for this special breed who are different in so many ways that they are almost their own species! I also have a big passion for vet dentistry which can increase day-to-day comfort in our pets and give us extra precious time with them.
