Hi, my name is Eva. I graduated in South Africa in 1996 and have now been working in Auckland for 18 months as part of Auckland Pet Hospital. It’s wonderful working with such a capable and caring team of vets and nurses.
After graduating, I worked in animal welfare for many years and still have a passion for primary health care. I spent many weekends in small South African towns participating in sterilization campaigns and a month on Galapagos volunteering at Darwin Animal Doctors. I find this grassroots work very rewarding.
When not at work, I enjoy spending my time outdoors running, biking, hiking or playing tennis. My four kids keep me busy playing Mom’s Taxi the rest of the time. Our three cats (Storm, Floss and Lily) came from Cape Town with us and they provide us with plenty of love, cuddles and entertainment. My kids call me the “crazy cat lady” and I wear the title with pride.
I look forward to meeting all of you and your fur-babies very soon.
