Kirra graduated with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science from the University of Sydney in 2013, passed examinations in feline medicine to become a member of the Australian New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in 2018, and is currently completing a Master of Veterinary Sciences online with The University of Edinburgh. 

Over the last seven years in Canberra, she has worked in small animal general practice, completed an internship with the Animal Referral Hospital Canberra and spent some time working in a busy emergency department. 

Kirra loves all cats, and in particular her one-eyed ginger tabby Rory. In her spare time, she can be found baking, tending to her veggie garden with fiancé Scott, or roller skating.
