What’s the best thing about being an Equine Veterinarian?

My favourite part of working with horses and being in the equine industry is being involved with people’s lives. I get to be there through the good and rewarding times and also offer support through the difficult and tough times too.

What did you need to study to qualify as an Equine Veterinarian?

Following graduation from Stuartholme, I went on to study at the University of Queensland. For two years I studied a Bachelor of Science. Then I transferred over to a Bachelor of Veterinary Science, which I graduated from in 2010 with Honours.

Were you involved in Equestrian at Stuartholme?

I participated in the school’s equestrian programme all through my time at Stuartholme. I ended up being the Equestrian Captain, which gave me the opportunity to test out my leadership skills. This has really helped me as a coach and also as a business owner.

How do you stay connected to Stuartholme?

I often see the current girls competing at equestrian events. It’s great to see that equestrian is still so strong at Stuartholme. I also keep in touch with the friendship groups I developed while I was there.

Do you have a memorable moment from your school days?

The most memorable moment for me was spending time with friends at the Stuartholme sporting carnivals. Being a part of the team environment and the sportsmanship at Stuartholme has left an impression on me and are important parts of my life today as an equestrian competitor.
