WA Veterinary Emergency & Specialty

Imaging Team


Registered Specialist, Radiology

I grew up on a large cattle and sheep property in Queensland and when I got into vet school my father decided we would muster on horseback rather than motorbikes to ensure I would become some sort of large animal vet. His plan let him down when he got me to pregnancy test a mob of wild first-calf heifers in a race, and after being kicked by every one of them I decided small animal work was the way to go. After graduating I worked in Australia and the United Kingdom before deciding to specialise in radiology. I did the ANZCVS membership exams in radiology and then worked as a clinical instructor at Queensland University before moving to James Cook University in Townsville where I was section head for several years. During this time I spent 6 months in the USA at Oklahoma State University. When my husband decided to give up flying Blackhawk helicopters we were able to move to Melbourne where I did a residency at Melbourne University, and following this I took up a Senior Lectureship at Murdoch University and then on to WAVES in 2017. At WAVES I enjoy working as part of a team to provide the best possible care for our patients. I’m most interested in thoracic imaging such as echocardiography and thoracic CT, and CT contrast studies. In my spare time I enjoy getting out for weekends to Rottnest on our boat and going on mountain-biking adventures with the family.
