My Veterinary career began in 2004 on the outskirts of Brisbane in a mixed practice. After completing an internship in equine medicine and surgery I turned my attention to biomechanical medicine. After completing my animal chiropractic studies and seeing the results in my patients, I knew that I could achieve better functionality than I had thought possible from regular treatments. Many of the course lecturers and tutors had also studied acupuncture and believed that there were benefits in combining them. Now that my eyes had been opened to a higher standard of care, I was eager to see how much better that standard could get.

The acupuncture course I studied was based on Chinese medicine theories. This approach looks at the person/animal as a whole rather than focusing on the site of their injury or their illness. It means that the same western/regular diagnosis can be treated in different ways depending on the functionality of the whole animal. Chinese medicine considers both how the problem arose and also how the animal is internally dealing with their issues. Although this differs from the more symptom focused methods of regular Veterinary treatments, I was soon able to see how both approaches complemented each other. It gave me yet another dimension to the diagnosis and treatment.

Since 2012 I have been offering a combination of regular veterinary treatment with chiropractic care and acupuncture. I love that I can tailor the treatment to the individual animal to get the best outcome. More recently I have been studying canine rehabilitation and completed a Certificate in Clinical Integrative Canine Rehabilitation. I enjoy working with performance or agility animals as well as those rehabilitating from injury or surgery.

After working in Veterinary surgeries for 15 years, I started VETMACS to enable me to see pets in their own environment away from the stress of a clinic. When the animals are more relaxed then the treatment can be even more effective.

Outside of VETMACS I am a Veterinary Officer in the Army Reserves and work closely with the military working dogs. I also enjoy renovating my house (an ongoing labour of love) and camping with my husband. I hope to find more time to play my piano and get back into learning German.
