In 2011, she successfully was admitted as a member to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in the Small Animal Medicine Chapter. In 2012, Kathryn also gained membership to the college in the field of Wildlife Medicine. In 2013, Kathryn received her Masters of Veterinary Science following completion of a 2 year research project investigating herpesviruses in Australian marsupials, whilst undertaking a clinical residency at Healesville Sanctuary in Victoria. Kathryn enjoys all aspects of small animal and wildlife practice, but especially loves medicine and diagnostics. She has recently undergone training in the use of therapeutic low level lasers, and enjoys seeing the benefit this can bring to animals with arthritis, skin, and spinal problems in conjunction with medical treatment. Kathryn started at Allison Crescent Veterinary Hospital in July 2018, and in addition to her part time veterinary work, is also a full time mum to her son Judah, as well as her elderly cat Charlotte. She enjoys reading, studying and spending time with her family.
