Our Team

Dr Amanda

Owner & Veterinarian

Amanda grew up in Bundaberg and visited Hervey Bay often. She graduated from the University of Queensland in 2000 with an Applied Science degree in Wildlife Biology. After completing this, she became a wildlife ranger with Queensland Parks and Wildlife in and around Bundaberg for 2 years. She wanted to focus on domestic animals so became a vet nurse at one of the practices in Bundaberg. This was where she got the taste for veterinary science. So, she packed everything up and moved to Townsville. Amanda graduated from James Cook University in 2013, then moved south to Childers and started working as a mixed animal vet. Towards the end of 2016, she decided to move to Hervey Bay where she could focus on her passion for small animals. Amanda enjoys both the surgery and medicine sides of vet science. She owns a small menagerie of animals including her Labrador X Cattle Dog Henry, cranky cat Hamish and his feline friend Andy, turtle Albert, and four guinea pigs Barney, Biscuit, Nutmeg and Winston.
