Linda originally studied at Victoria University of Wellington and achieved a BSc in Biochemistry / BSc (Hons) Physiology before returning to academia and gaining her veterinary qualification, graduating with the year of 1988 from Massey University with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science.  Linda was the original owner of Kilbirnie Animal Health Centre & Cattery before selling to CareVets in November 2015, and thankfully, she stayed with us!
Linda really enjoys forming relationships with her clients and their pets and has been fortunate enough to establish long-term relationships with many of her clients over the many years she had been based in Kilbirnie.  Linda is particularly interested in oncology, soft tissue surgery and pain mangement. 

She currently has quite the collection of animals at home, including a pack of Curly Coated Retrievers, cats, goats, pigs, cows, chickens, ducks & geese.  In her spare time, Linda breeds and shows her Curly Coated Retrievers and also enjoys gardening and cooking.
