I was born in South Africa (since ages ago!) From the age of 5 I wanted to become a vet and started breeding English Bulls dogs. I grew up in the city but moved out to the country side to do a Diploma in Veterinary Technology to get my foot in the door. After which I started my own business as a large animal reproduction consulting service. I qualified as a vet from Onderstepoort and did a post graduate diploma through the Royal Vet College, University of London. In 2011 I came to New Zealand for work and fell in love with the country and its people so migrated here in 2013. Since living in New Zealand, I have worked for MPI and MSD and opened the West Melton Vet Centre on the 30th October 2017. I have a husband named Rudi and two children called Rudi and Peter. We as a family love being part of the West Melton Community.
