Fran grew up on a cattle property in North Queensland. She graduated from The University of Queensland in 2008 with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science. She began her career working at a busy mixed vet practice near Beaudesert for just over 2 years, before moving north to Rockhampton, where she worked in a mixed practice for 4 & ½ years. Fran took time away from the profession to have 2 children and has recently joined the team at High Street as a part time Veterinarian in January 2019. Fran enjoys both small animal medicine & surgery, with a particular interest in problem solving medical cases & soft tissue surgery. On her days off she is busy caring for her two young girls & on weekends she enjoys spending time with her husband & children. She owns a miniature long hair dachshund called ‘Pippi’, who was their first fur baby & is very much still a part of their family.
