Veterinary Nurses

Bel Receptionist

Hey there, I’m Bel! I joined The Dog Clinic team in 2017, and prior to that I worked at AHVEC as an Emergency Veterinary Nurse/Receptionist for five years. All together I have been in the veterinary industry for fifteen years and counting now!

My main roles at The Dog Clinic are overseeing stock/medication orders, client communication, management and I also take care of all the Pet Insurance needs for the clinic.

While I love all breeds of dog, I do admit that my favourite breed is the Pug. I have a soft spot for the snorting breeds. Next time you’re in the clinic, come and say hi as I love to chat!

 

Jennifer Veterinary Nurse 

Hi, my name is Jennifer and I have been with The Dog Clinic since early 2019 as a Veterinary Nurse. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for just under three years and I am currently studying Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing with AIRC. My passion is to work with all animals, so at the moment I am enjoying working with all breeds of dogs. I have been responsible for implementing our Senior Program for our elder patients, which enables me to work closely with our clients and their beautiful dogs. I have a varied role at The Dog Clinic from reception to surgical nursing which allows me to build a rapport with both clients and patients. My job is different each and every day which I find refreshing and exciting.

I have three dogs of my own: a 12 year old Spoodle called Brian, an 9 year old Border Collie called Zac and a 3 year old Kelpie called Charlie, they definitely keep me on my toes! Also not forgetting there is our 13 year old cat called Chops.

I live with my family out at Glen Huon where we have an 82 acre farm and run a blueberry and cherry orchard, so there is very little spare time but when I do have time I enjoy spending it with my family away from the farm. 

Karyn Receptionist

 Hi, my name is Karyn and I have been in the veterinary industry for 14 years. I started my career in 2006 at Channel Highway Animal Hospital. During that time I was lucky enough to work alongside specialist surgeon Dr Gail Anderson, fulfilling my love for more complex surgical procedures.

In my younger days I was a keen equestrian and was lucky enough to be invited to live in Melbourne to fulfil my love of showjumping. I competed both in Victoria and NSW for 2 wonderful years until I became homesick…and broke (you can never be rich with horses!!).
I joined the wonderful team at The Dog Clinic in July 2019. I am excited to be starting this new adventure and look forward to meeting all your beautiful companions. I am also a proud mum to 2 beautiful daughters.

Brielle Receptionist  & Puppy School

Brielle joined The Dog Clinic team as a receptionist in late 2017. Brie has taken on lots of behind-the-scenes roles at The Dog Clinic, including 
coordinating the annual Worming & Bravecto Program, overseeing our social media Facebook & Instagram pages and website, Puppy School training, and getting to know our clients and their fantastic furry friends.

Brie also has a pet-minding business Woof & Whiskers where she can house-sit with your pets or provide daily visitation in the Greater Hobart area.

You can usually catch her playing with our great range of dog toys she orders in the Sandy Bay consulting room, or petting puppies and feeding patients all the treats at the Taroona Hospital! If you see her floating around, feel free to come say hi! She may even scratch behind your ears!

Megan Veterinary Nurse

Megan joined The Dog Clinic team in 2021, after working at a critical care clinic in Melbourne.  Nurse Meg also used to work with Karyn and Emma at Hobart and Channel Highway Animal Hospitals for many years as a senior nurse.

She is experienced in emergency and orthopaedic surgeries with a love of complex surgical cases. Meg is in charge of our inter-clinic referral surgeries with our friends at Bright Futures, and works closely with Dr Chris Allfree and Nurse Stacey. 

Stephanie Veterinary Nurse

Steph has recently joined us at The Dog Clinic in 2021 after spending some time at AHVEC in critical care. She started her veterinary nursing career in 2013 in a rural practice in Victoria and achieved her qualification in 2018.

She has two dogs, Tilly (Border Collie x Kelpie) and Benny (Golden Retriever x Border Collie). They all enjoy spending time at the beach and seeing the sights that Tasmania has to offer.

She’s looking forward to getting back into general practice and seeing all the dogs of Hobart.
