Ellen graduated with a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine in 2017 from University College Dublin (UCD) in Ireland and worked predominantly as a small animal Vet for four years before making the journey to New Zealand. She joined the CareVets Johnsonville team in November 2021 and fitted in instantly.

As well as working with all the animals, Ellen enjoys the diversity and problem-solving aspect of her job and loves that no two days are the same! Ellen particularly enjoys performing soft tissue surgery and has experience performing a variety of different surgeries.

She has a German Shepherd of her own, Daisy, who she misses every day, but she does get lots of updates and photos sent from her family. When not at work, Ellen enjoys hiking/tramping, going to the gym and of course, travelling when she can.
