Though they say never to work with children or animals…….Melissa does both, running a children’s playgroup for her Church in her free time. Melissa is currently learning that it is a lot harder to train a puppy with children helping than it was pre-children, having recently added Kaiyo to the family.
Dr. Elise Kinsey
Hi! I’m Elise and I grew up in Maitland, NSW with my two older brothers and our little dog Nutmeg.
It has been my dream to be a veterinarian since I was 3 years old, so you might say I’m quite literally living the dream. Graduating from Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga in 2017, I have been in mixed and small animal practice since. My particular interest lies in weird and wonderful creatures including reptiles, but my love of animals is quite broad.
In my spare time you will find me playing hockey, music, camping and going on adventures with my gorgeous rescue dog Finzi. Come and say hi with your furry, hairy, feathery or scaley pets.
Dr. Marena Stols
Marena grew up on a cattle and game farm in South Africa and immigrated to Australia when she was 11 years old. She grew up with a range of animals but has a particular soft spot for Great Danes, cattle, and wildlife. She graduated from James Cook University and has been enjoying working in mixed practice with all its challenges. She has a particular interest in small animal surgery, small and large animal reproductive medicine and herd health. After work you can find her playing basketball, netball, exploring the outdoors or being with family and friends.
