Practice Manager (Master of all)
My family moved to Townsville many years ago and after falling in love with the lifestyle, decided to make NQ our permanent home. I completed my education here and started work in the airline industry, before a career shift into healthcare about 10 years ago. Though not having worked in the veterinary industry, I have had experience in medical and dental practice management. I see many similarities in these fields, as after all, we’re still committed to providing the best possible patient care, except now patients are furry, feathered or four legged.
I love animals and am passionate about their health and their importance in the community. I have seen firsthand how pivotal they are to vulnerable members in our community. Being responsible for a pet is not only enriching, but it also provides health benefits for the owner too! No wonder they become fur babies!
I value customer service, and compassionate and respectful communication. I’m committed to maintaining a strong team culture focused on providing gold standard care with compassion. We love what we do and strive to improve.
Outside of work, we have a hobby farm which is totally self sustained – off the grid 100%. I have a little black toy poodle, Lulu, who is my constant companion.

Liz has lived in Townsville since 2020 and she immigrated here from the UK to live with her lovely fiancée, Craig.
She used to work in hospitality but always had a passion for animals and always wanted to care for them.
She has been working as a vet nurse since 2020 and has completed her Certificate II in Animal Studies and Certificate III in Companion Animals. She is currently enrolled and studying her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing through ACVN.
She has an amazingly huge love for cats and have 4 cats of my own at home - Whiskey, Archie, Oscar and Ricket. Ricket is extra special as he has a condition called tarsal hyperextention which makes him disabled but super duper cute!
Liz & Craig have also recently adopted a little Cattle Dog cross named Daisy who is currently undergoing heartworm treatment.
We are thrilled to have Liz as a part of our team as her wealth of knowledge about cats and her caring nature for animals and peers is what makes her such an amazing nurse.

I was born and raised in Victoria I came to Townsville in 2012 with the Australian Defence Force. I served 8 years in the Army as a Medical Technician but my love for animals was too strong, so I chose to study veterinary nursing instead. I completed my certificate IV in veterinary nursing in early 2019. I started my veterinary nursing career at Hammett Street Veterinary Surgery. It was time for a change to further expand my knowledge and I am looking forward to starting work with Vet2urPet. I look forward to learning the home care services and clinical orthopaedic surgeries, as I have an interest and love for surgical nursing. I love all types of dogs but have a special interest in Rottweilers.
At home I have, a rescued deaf border collie x named Winter, A Rottweiler called George, A blue tongue lizard called Badger, a jungle python called Mi Goreng, two chooks and lots of fish. In my spare time I love playing soccer, netball, fishing and generally enjoying the great outdoors with my husband and son. I am also a volunteer committee member for Wyld Hearts Sanctuary.

Chloe joined our team in 2022. She originally comes from Central West NSW and came to us with 8 years of veterinary nursing experience. Whilst in NSW used to work in mixed animal practice but now enjoys working in small animal practice since moving to Townsville for a 'seachange' in 2020. Previously Chloe ran an alpaca stud with her father and used to breed, show & shear alpacas for over 10 years.
Her passion in veterinary nursing is definitely surgical nursing, but enjoys the variety that Vet2UrPet has to offer with mobile consultations, hospital and surgical roles. The best part of the job for her is seeing patients recover from their various injuries and illnesses and return home to their loving families!
Chloe and her partner Eric have 2 dogs, a 8 year old kelpie called Bundy and a 3 year old kelpie cross cattle dog called Bailey. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time at the beach, exploring at Paluma & Cungulla and also runs her small hobby business "Chloe & Kelpies Co." creating all sorts of pet wear for many Townsville pets.

Jolene is our exceptional receptionist who keeps the clinic running smoothly. She's a born and bred Townsville local too!
Before Vet2UrPet, Jolene was a veterinary nurse for 18.5 years so it's safe to say you're in great hands with her trusty triage knowledge. Her favourite part of the job is developing a relationship with all the beautiful fur-babies and their owners that come through the door.
When Jolene isn't at work, she is busy taking care of her menagerie which consists of 2 two legged children Ellah & Alyssa as well as 2 dogs named Teddy & Dolly, 4 cats named Minty, Soxy, Reggie & Izzy, 4 guinea pigs, 2 birds, a visiting kangaroo & some fish as well. She also has her own pet sitting business which keeps her super busy!
