I grew up on a small property on the outskirts of Christchurch, and since then have been moving further and further North. I joined the team in Waipu as a new graduate earlier this year with an interest in production animal practice, but my interest in small animal practice is growing. I was drawn to Northland by the warm weather, fantastic ocean – for both fish and surf – and family connections, and I love the opportunity and community Northland provides.

When I am not working, I spend a lot of time standing on the coastal rocks with a fishing line in the water, lugging around the squash court, or getting out on a tramping trail. I am a keen follower of cricket and rugby, still struggling to let go of my support of the Canterbury.
