Lecturer in Small Animal Surgery

About me

I started working in the Murdoch University Veterinary Hospital in March 2015, in both the Orthopaedic/Neurosurgery and Soft Tissue/Oncologic Surgery departments. I graduated from Massey University (New Zealand) in 2006. I completed an internship in Small Animal Surgery at University College Dublin in Ireland in 2007, followed by several years of general practice in New Zealand and Adelaide. I started a residency in Small Animal Surgery at the University of Sydney in 2011 which finished in 2014, and finished a Masters in Veterinary Studies (Small Animal Practice) extramurally during this time. In February 2015 I was awarded the status of Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons by examination. I am also an active Member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists.
