Rowan graduated with the class of 2016 from the University of Glasgow and worked in mixed practice in England for four years before making the move to New Zealand. She packed away her gumboots and joined the CareVets Johnsonville team in September 2020 to concentrate on her small animal career path.

Rowan particularly enjoys continuity in the vet clinic and loves following animals throughout their many life stages and really getting to know them as individuals, helping their owners to make the best decisions to keep their pets as healthy and happy as possible along the way. Rowan loves the variety offered in small animal practice and has equal interests in surgery and medicine.

She has a dearly missed cat of her own, Skye, back in Scotland who she keeps in touch with regularly and sends her a card and a present every year for her birthday and Christmas. Skye has been brought up very well and always sends a video message to say thank you!

When not at work Rowan likes to keep fit and active and you will find her out and about hiking, running, biking or climbing whilst exploring the rest of the country. She also enjoys socialising with friends and likes nothing better than sitting back with a cold pint after a day of activities or finding a new cafe and enjoying a good cake.
