About Me

As a 4-year-old I started dreaming about becoming a vet when I grew up, even though I didn’t really know what it all meant back then! That big dream and an even bigger love of animals have led to me being here today, grateful that I get to wake up every day and do something that I love. My experiences with my own pets as a child and from visiting many pet expos and shows where I met amazing vets, ignited a spark in me that never faded away.

My Passion, Purpose & Motivation

Making a positive difference in the lives of animals and the people that love them through healing, education and preventative medicine is why Kunal and I opened Lynbrook Vet in 2018. We wanted to create a place where your pets mattered and where the environment was welcoming to all our clients, staff, and visitors.

Having seen this come to fruition we are so excited to have now opened our sister clinic, Berwick Clyde Vet also. We appreciate the opportunity to help more people and their pets live healthier and more fulfilled lives.

And we are not stopping there!

Our aim is to continually create supportive spaces for future generations of animal loving people to thrive in. We want to ensure that there are always caring, motivated and skilled people ready to care for your pets.

My Qualifications & Experience

Since my graduation from the University of Melbourne in 2008 I have been lucky to experience many aspects of general practice and love that no day looks the same. I love seeing all your pets that come through our doors whether that be your new puppy or kitten, your precious senior family member, or the smallest members of the family like rabbits. My goal is to support you in optimally caring for your pet and to ensure your bond with your pet is prioritised and protected.

I have worked in several small animal practices and worked within a greyhound specialty practice. I have also worked within the welfare shelter industry, particularly in feline medicine. I have completed further training in small animal internal medicine through the Centre for Veterinary Education at the University of Sydney and through the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists. I am a qualified member of the college in Small Animal Medicine (MANZCVS). We are constantly learning and developing our skills further so we can continue to offer you more services including specialist surgeries like prophylactic gastropexies, rabbit desexings and urethrostomies, as well as specialist medical care including for rabbits experiencing gut stasis and animals with behavioural concerns. We also offer staged dentals for our patients. Animal welfare is always at the forefront of all the decisions we make.

My Family & Hobbies

Along with my supportive husband, we are lucky to be parents to 4 babies, 2 human and 2 furry! I have a Staffy X Mastiff named Rusty who was a rescue through the charity Project Underdog Rescue, after requiring surgery to repair a damaged cruciate ligament. I also have a cat called Midnight whom I adopted from a prior vet clinic I worked at after he and his litter mates were surrendered to the clinic. My weekends are mostly spent at the park or playground with my young family and friends enjoying nature. When I get a spare moment, I also love to read anything I can get my hands on!

I look forward to meeting you and your furry family soon.
