Read about Charlotte…
Born in England, grew up in Fiji and Hong Kong. My family moved to NZ in 1991, and I started at Massey that year. BVSc end of 1995, so they say graduated in 1996. Worked in Auckland, then back to Palmerston north – where I worked in local clinics and at Massey teaching whilst I did my Diploma in veterinary clinical studies – Surgery. (DVCS). I then studied and obtained my membership to the Australian College of veterinary scientists - also in surgery (MACVSc). After a couple of years, I got the travel bug and left for my OE to the UK. Locumed there for a while before being based in Norfolk. Stayed for 10 years in general practice before coming home to settle down with my family. For the last 7 years, I have been at RVC, Rangiora Vet Centre, as a small animal consulting vet. Now time to give back to the profession, hence the job shift to Dechra
