Madeleine (Maddie, she/her) grew up on the mean streets of Cashmere and has been working as a vet since 2015. Covid dragged her back to Aotearoa after a three year stint in the UK, where she taught at the vet school in Bristol and had been locuming and traveling. She saw some interesting cases in the UK, including a boa constrictor with a cough. Being a vet means chatting to people, communicating scientific ideas and getting to snuggle up to cute animals; just three of the reasons Maddie loves this job!
When she’s not scrubbed up and frothing over surgeries, she’s outside scaling mountains with Frank the pug or chilling out in the ocean. She’s also dedicated to learning te reo and enjoys a tinkle on the keys.
