Merin is an experienced veterinary nurse who has worked with us since 2009. She is responsible for the smooth running of the surgical side of the practice. Her strong work ethic and interpersonal skills have made her a welcome member of the management team.
Merin has a broad range if interests ranging from giant breed dogs to roller derby. She is a lover and advocate of Greyhounds and helped develop the clinic’s relationship with Greyhound Rescue. Merin has lived in Katoomba for a number of years and this enables her to be close by in emergencies at the clinic out of hours. She also runs the puppy preschool classes.
Stacee has been with us since 2014. After volunteering as part of her tafe work placement she moved to full time upon completing her certificate 4 in veterinary nursing. Since then she has become an integral part of our nursing staff. Stacee has completed additional training in emergency nursing and provides excellent care to all her patients.
She loves all aspects of nursing and intends to study further in canine and feline behaviour. Stacee has a dog called Frankie (also known as 'Cranky Frankie) and a kitty called Belle. She also runs the puppy preschool classes.

When not at work she spends time down on her property in Hartley with her husband and toddler, taking care of her multitude of sheep, chooks, peacocks, ducks, cats and dogs.
Megan is our newest member of staff and also a fully qualified Certificate IV nurse. She brings a high standard of care to all her patients and is seldom without a smile on her face. We are lucky to have found someone who has settled in so quickly to our day to day routine.
