2015  to Present

I have always dreamed of working with animals since I could remember. I had the privilege at a young age to assist a dachshund giving birth and since then I knew Veterinary science was my future.

I qualified at Onderstepoort in November 2014 and started working with Dr Nel and Dr Conradie in 2015. My interests are in small animals and wildlife. I especially enjoy diagnostic imaging, surgery and reproduction. I also enjoy dog training and spent a lot of time working with the beagle colony at Onderstepoort.

We focused on puppy socialization and desensitization as well as environmental enrichment. I got married in 2015 to my amazing husband Pierre, who assists me with after hours call outs, so some of you might meet my part time murse (male nurse) along the way. My hobbies include painting, drawing, baking and spoiling my cat Cameron.
