I’ve always dreamed of becoming a veterinarian and I’ve held various roles throughout my career, including associate veterinarian, veterinary practice owner, and contract research worker. I’ve been privileged to work with such a diverse range of animals!
My current role as VetPartners NSW/ACT Veterinary Manager is the most rewarding role I’ve had. It’s great to share my experiences, help others avoid mistakes, and shape the profession for the betterment of all involved. I feel respected, appreciated, and part of something special. I love making a difference and giving back to an industry that has been so good to me.
My 30 years of veterinary experience have prepared me for parts of this role, and since taking it on, I’ve also gained leadership skills and self-awareness.
One thing we all need to remember is that while clients are important, it’s also about the team. It’s essential that we become good listeners, and remember that nobody is perfect – so don’t be hard on yourself!
