My family home has always been full of animals, which taught me how to value and care for their wellbeing. Our first family pet was a wire haired Jack Russell who was named Mungo due to Dad’s Scottish heritage.
Through the eyes of a 5 year old, I decided it was necessary to arrange a wedding for him at Madill’s farm. The day was a great success and there was a pretty big turn out! His brother Coutts was his best man. I have had my own horse since I was 10 years old and have ridden competitively in Auckland teams.
I am here at the Strand Veterinarian because I love to care and look after all animals. I would want my own animals to be treated with compassion and empathy so I feel it is important to do the same for each individual pet. Vet Nursing is a rewarding career and I am so lucky to be part of such an amazing team of girls, making me want to come to work every day.
