Lisa grew up in Killarney Heights in Sydney and after obtaining a Science degree from the University of Sydney she started her Veterinary Science degree, graduating with first class honours in 1995. Initially she worked at on the outskirts of Sydney, seeing a wide variety of people and cases, and it gave her a taste of life in the bush.
Escaping to Orange in 1997, she has made a home with husband Stuart and her four children at Mullion Creek. The kids routinely excel at sport. Stuart is well known in town for being made completely of scar tissue and always fronting up for Emu's Rugby Club for a game way beyond the age that he should. Stuart is a soil scientist and was unfortunate enough to have to put up with Geoff while in high school at Goulburn High.
Lisa not only breeds children but also Cavoodles, and occasionally Cavalier King Charles Spaniels.
She has completed her membership examinations to the Australian College in canine medicine. She has completed post graduate courses in internal medicine and dermatology.
Lisa has also completed a master’s degree through Massey University giving her a Master of Veterinary Medicine in Companion Animals. Her special interests are endocrinology and dermatology. So if you have a pet with Diabetes, Cushing’s disease, an itch, or bald skin – Lisa is the vet in the central west you should be talking to.
