Chat with an expat: Dr Vic Wheeler
“I graduated from the University of Liverpool and worked as a mixed vet in Hertfordshire for 2.5 years before deciding to spend a year on a working holiday in Australia. I loved it so much I’m still here, nearly 10 years later.
“I’m so grateful I’ve had the opportunity to see Australia with my vet career, plus I’ve got to treat some more unusual species, from koalas to kangaroos! I’ve experienced the outback, the Daintree rainforest and dived the Great Barrier Reef. From the world’s top wineries to Melbourne’s foodie scene; stunning beaches to snow capped mountains (yes, you can ski here!) – Australia has so much more than I ever imagined!
“On a career front, I’ve gone from locum to Head Vet, to leadership roles supporting a group of clinics. Currently, I’m the General Manager for VetPartners South Australia. I love the fulfilment I get from supporting the clinic teams to grow from strength to strength and working to ensure a sustainable future for our industry.
“In my down time, I enjoy exploring the national parks of this amazing place with its much more favourable weather! Plus having NZ close by has made for some epic weeks away!”
