Dr Jill graduated from Sydney University in 1981 and started work in small animal practice at St George Animal Hospital in Carlton. She then worked at Forest Animal Hospital for a couple of years before leaving to start a family.

Since then Jill has worked part time at several small animal clinics but mostly here at Hornsby Vet Hospital. In fact, she has the dubious honour of having been here the longest – even longer than Angus!!

At home Jill is kept busy by her husband, three children, their two very lively spoilt cattle X dogs named Spike and Dave, and a pet rat called Tippy that they had rescued.
