I grew up in Adelaide surrounded by cats and dogs and later horses, goats and cattle on a family farm in the Adelaide Hills. I had my heart set on being a vet since Primary School.
Since graduating in 1983 I have worked in many Adelaide Practices in permanent, part-time or locum positions, including 10 years of mixed practice in Strathalbyn.
Living locally, we share our home with Radar, the Jack Russell Cross, who is a regular staff member of Blackwood Vets, and 2 cats. Basil is a very smoochy Burmese, and Sprocket a socially awkward but very sweet Domestic Short hair.
Loving all sorts of adventure sports I enjoy sail boarding, water skiing, climbing and playing inline hockey. My main passion is snowboarding and I can’t seem to get through winter without a trip to the snow!
Ali and I got together and bought the business in October 2007. It has been a fantastic opportunity to put our input on an established practice .Blackwood Vets is a fabulous place to work with lovely clients and a wonderful group of dedicated and caring staff.
