I have always wanted to be a vet. Growing up on a grain and sheep farm near Geelong I had lots of farm animals and dogs and cats to look after. Now I am very lucky to meet and care for so many lovely pets in Port Melbourne where I part-own the vet practice with Dr Paris. Everyday is different. I think being a vet is like being a detective, having to work out what the problem is. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats at home who keep me busy as they are all getting older. I have Charlie a cavoodle, Chappy a toy poodle and two long haired cats (Sammy and Roger) who originally were stray kittens from Port Melbourne.
