Meet the team
Michelle is our Head Nurse. Michelle comes from the UK and gained a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing there in 2008. She has worked in both general practice and specialist referral practice for many years before travelling to Australia and New Zealand. After visiting NZ, she decided she couldn't leave! Her wealth of experience and knowledge are a huge asset to our practice. When she's not busting her gut at work, she is taking care of her 2 precious kitties Jeremy and Sophia.
Sam is a New Zealand trained vet nurse with a varied career behind her. Sam was involved in running a feed company, farmed milking goats and worked as a groom with polo ponies in the States. Sam has been with the Pet Vets, almost since it began, and she is often your first port of call when calling or visiting the clinic. If she can't help you then probably nobody can!
Becca is a recentt addition to our team, having completed her vet nurse training about 2 years ago. She is bubbly and energetic and has settled in very quickly. She spends most of her time in clinic, but will be found helping on farm from time to time as well. When not at work, she likes to chill at home with her partner, her cat and dog, and her x-box.
Michelle joined us in December last year after working as a mixed practice vet in Hamilton for 10 years. She has a young son at home, so works part time mostly in the clinic, but helps out the cow vets from time to time. She enjoys the variety mixed practice brings but loves the added challenge of surgery and imaging of small animal work. She has really enjoyed the move to Cambridge and being part of a new team.
Marion has worked here for 9 years now, although, now on a part - time basis, while she looks after her young kids and a menagerie at home. She is very experienced and slots in here and there wherever we need her about the place!
Alyeska is the newest member of our team and has come down from the Coromandel to join us. She is a vet-nurse-in-training but is very competent and sociable, getting to know our clients and their pets quickly. She works part time and the rest of the time is spent looking after her young daughter, dog and 2 stray cats.
Annie works mostly as a large animal vet, but she's great at helping us out in the small animal clinic when we are busy, and you'll also see Annie sometimes on Saturdays when she does the small animal clinic. She is very experienced, having worked here and in the UK and we are very happy to have her smiling face around the place, especially as baking is one of her past times! Her young sons, Stanley and Wyatt, keep her very busy when she's not at work.
Kelly looks after the guests in our cattery. She has recently moved from Wellington and is a certified cat crazy lady!! She will take excellent care of your cat, giving them lots of love and attention.
Annalise is our 'after school girl'. She helps out in the afternoons cleaning the floors, but also works in the cattery in the weekends, helping Kelly out. She would like to be a vet when she leaves school, so she also comes in on Saturday mornings to help out and watch what's going on.
