Catherine graduated from Massey University in 2012 and started her vet career as a mixed animal vet in Ashburton. After 7 years there she realised dairy cows were not her calling and moved up to Christchurch to work solely with companion animals. She really enjoys emergency/critical care work and working up medicine cases.

In her spare time Catherine enjoys getting outside, she can often be found at the Christchurch Adventure Park on her mountain bike or out snowboarding in the winter.
