Role at SAH



I have a double degree in Veterinary Biology & Veterinary Science and I graduated in August 2020. 

How long have you worked at SAH?

My entire career.

What is the MOST enjoyable thing about your job?

Every day…  It’s wonderful to have such a positive impact on the animal-human bond. I also love working with such a skilled and knowledgeable team – we all lift each other. 


Do you have any pets?

I have a large rescue mutt named Clove, who is a big lovable oaf, and a tiny sparrow named Tiny Bird, who keeps me endlessly entertained.

Where is your favourite local place to go for a break?

I love going to Redhead beach with my dog and watching all the different types of dogs frolicking around.

Where would you go for a good meal out locally?

I love El Chapos in Maitland, they do fantastic burritos and a good sangria

If you could have any animal at all as a pet, what would you choose and why?

I would choose a leopard seal. They are so beautiful and prehistoric. They fascinate and terrify me in equal measure.

What is interesting about your job?

 I was helping a beautiful lorikeet recover from anaesthetic , which can sometimes make them feel a bit nauseous. The bird was slightly disoriented, so I was gently stroking and talking to it while it came around. It seemed to perk up, so I allowed it toclimb onto my shoulder, where it cuddled close to my cheek. I was very touched by this, until it vomited in my ear! I couldn’t blame the poor bird – and it did seem to feel a lot better afterwards!

Two truths and a lie!

Hover over the statement to find out if it’s true. Green is true and red is a lie. Did you get it right?

Until I was 12 I wanted to be a blacksmith and make swords (until I realised this may be slightly redundant)

I once got trapped in a shed for a protracted period by an angry barn owl who latched onto the back of my head
