Qualifications: Bachelor of Veterinary Science (BVSc)
Sophie grew up in Rockhampton and graduated from James Cook University with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science in 2016. She began her career working in a rural mixed practice in Hughenden, in outback Queensland, where she gained some valuable experience learning to be resourceful, independent & caring.
Sophie originally came to us as a veterinary student when she did her prac-work and we have always known that she would become a great vet. This combined with her love for small animals led her to join the High Street family in November 2017. Sophie is a welcome addition to High Street as we grow and solve clients’ problems with their much loved four-legged family members.
“I love being a Veterinary Surgeon because I have the ability to care for and treat people’s pets. I enjoy working with owners to best care for their pet’s needs. I love that every day is different, every patient has their own little personality, and that I get to learn something new every day! I love that our profession is always moving forward with medicine and knowledge enabling our pets to have more time with us!”
Interest/Hobbies: Sophie enjoys the challenges that come with every medical, surgical, and emergency case. She thrives on putting her knowledge to good use and getting the best outcome. She has a particular interest in sonography, completing an advanced course in 2018. This has been a very beneficial addition to offer for our complex medical work-ups.
In her spare time, Sophie enjoys the outdoors and when she is not outside, she likes making and creating wonderful smelling candles for her little side business.
Pets: Dr. Sophie loves playing and spending time with her mischievous cattle dog Kora and playful Bull Arab Tik.
