Mel moved to Brisbane in late 2013 from Lismore, a small country town in Northern New South Wales.
Her vet nursing career started in 2009. Whilst studying for her higher school certificate she worked part time in a small and large animal clinic where the animals she cared for ranged from small rabbits to dairy cows. Vet nursing is the only job Mel has ever wanted to do and she joined the Sunnybank Vet team 4 years ago. Currently Mel owns a cute little pupper named Poppet and an Alexandrine Parrot named Melon. Sometimes you can see Poppet running around the clinic chasing her other furry Friends.
