Our Support Staff
Marie joined the clinic as practice manager in May 2011. She has over 27 years experience as a veterinary nurse, working in first opinion clinical practice in Scotland as a head veterinary nurse, as well as at Massey University Veterinary Teaching Hospital – her role there was clinical services co-ordinator and deputy head veterinary nurse. She was the practical skills co-ordinator for the Diploma in Veterinary Nursing at UCOL in Palmerston North before her move south to Dunedin. More recently she was a Senior Lecturer and Programme Manager in Veterinary Nursing at Otago Polytechnic. During this time she was also President of the New Zealand Veterinary Nursing Association and later she was the Editor of the New Zealand Veterinary Nursing Association Journal. She brings a wealth of experience to this new role. Marie completed a Diploma in Business Management in 2012, a Diploma in Human Resources in 2014 and a Diploma in Financial Management 2016.
Marianne is one of our new receptionists. She has been a receptionist in the medical field for many years but has joined us on the “furry” side. She has a love of all animals and is finally fulfilling her dream of working with them (and their people!)
She owns a naughty torti called Boo and a Maltese-cross called Poppy. In her spare time she enjoys walking Poppy and spending time with family and friends.
Sara’s background is in Zoology and conservation. She has extensive experience in zoos working with primates. She has previously worked in a veterinary clinic in Central Otago and a move to Dunedin with her family prompted her to apply to us and we’re very glad she did!
