Scroll down to get to know our wonderful veterinary team! We all look forward to being there in your time of need.
Dr. Erin Stewart
Dr. Erin joins our team with a wealth of experience and a deep passion for veterinary care. With over 20 years of valuable experience in the veterinary industry, and over 13 years as a veterinarian, Erin comes with exceptional expertise. Her passion lies in small animal medicine, with a keen interest in feline medicine, ultrasonography, emergency care, and dermatology.
Erin has gained experience in a wide variety of veterinary clinics, including a cat specialist clinic in Melbourne from 2017 to 2020, where she acquired valuable feline knowledge and skills. She is proficient in ultrasonography, has worked as an emergency clinician for many years, and completed a 1-year CVE course on small animal dermatology in 2016.
She is committed to continuous education to ensure that her patients receive the most up-to-date treatment and care. Currently, she is pursuing her AAFP Cat-Friendly Vet Certificate.
Outside of work, Erin enjoys socialising with family and friends, reading a good book, cooking, good wine, and kickboxing sessions (MMA). She draws inspiration from her own pets, some of whom have already crossed the rainbow bridge, and Ant, her mischievous, hand-raised singleton domestic shorthair.
Joining the team in early 2023, Kathryn brings to our veterinary clinic a wealth of expertise from the healthcare industry. With a diverse background spanning General Practice, Allied Health, Public Hospitals, and Emergency Services, she seamlessly integrates her valuable insights into the world of pet care.
Kathryn is passionate about animals and understands the special bond between pets and their humans. When she’s not dedicating herself to the clinic, she spends most of her time with her own furry companions; a 15-year-old long-haired Chihuahua and a 7-year-old Staffy. The harmony between these two distinct breeds mirrors her skill in fostering relationships and creating a harmonious atmosphere within our clinic.
Kathryn’s passion for both human and animal well-being, coupled with her drive for continuous improvement, makes her an invaluable asset to our team. Her dedication to elevating the standards of care and compassion resonates deeply with our clinic’s values, making her a true driving force in our pursuit of excellence.
Armed with her Certificate III in Veterinary Nursing from ACVN, Gabby joined our team in 2021, bringing with her a background in fitness that has seamlessly blended into her new role. From day one, Gabby has proven herself to be an invaluable member of our team, infusing every day at the Centre with her special brand of Gabby magic. Beyond her dedication to vet nursing, Gabby is a force to be reckoned with on the soccer field, playing for the Geelong Senior Women’s team. It was through her love for the sport that she crossed paths with her now fiancé, Vedran. Off the field, she relishes dining out, cherishing moments with friends, and spending quality time with her extensive family. At home, Gabby shares her space with a delightful cast of furry companions. There’s ‘Tom’ the domestic cat, ‘Peppi’ the lively Shihtzu-cross, ‘Lucy’ the spirited mini Foxy, and the newest addition to the family, ‘Odin’ a gorgeous black German Shepherd who brings boundless enthusiasm to our clinic. Given her profound affection for felines, Gabby has naturally assumed the role as one of our ‘Cat Advocates,’ representing all felines in our Gold Standard Cat Friendly Clinic.
Darci joined our team in 2021, and her presence has become an integral part of our daily operations. Darci boasts an impressive educational background, having earned a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing from the Gordan. Not stopping there, she also holds a Certificate III in ‘Wildlife and Exhibited Animal Care’ from Melbourne Zoo, where she had the privilege of working with a diverse array of species, including penguins, otters, lions, and cheetahs! Her ultimate aspiration is to contribute her expertise to rescue and rehabilitation sanctuaries. Outside of the clinic, Darci shares her passion for dance by teaching classes. She also spends her free time with her partner, Todd, exploring the enchanting depths of forests and thrilling nature adventures. Their home is graced by the presence of three beautiful cats – ‘Remus’ the Ragdoll, ‘Minerva’ the Domestic, and ‘Grimoire’ the British Shorthair – along with their spirited German Shepherd X, ‘Iroh’.
As one of our ‘Cat Advocates,’ Darci is committed to delivering exceptional care to our feline patients. Her dedication extends to promoting the well-being of all creatures, big and small, and her enthusiasm for wildlife healthcare is admirable.
Tash’s dedication to animal healthcare has been a driving force along her journey into the world of veterinary nursing. She embarked on a fulfilling journey in the field of veterinary nursing at the age of 16. Tash has since earned a Bachelor of Veterinary and Wildlife Science from Federation University, and she applies this knowledge in her role as a vet nurse. Tash’s positive attitude and genuine care for our patients make her a valuable asset to our team. Her warm and friendly nature sets a positive tone in the clinic and assists in providing a ‘fear-free’ environment for our patients. Now a proud resident of the picturesque Bellarine Peninsula, Tash embraces the coastal lifestyle with zest. You’ll often find her strolling along the sandy shores with her Fiancé Jay and their cherished greyhound rescues, ‘Harley’ and ‘Fiona’. Tash’s commitment to our core values, including compassion towards all animals, is evident, and her deep-rooted passion extends to the realm of wildlife care, making her an invaluable asset to our team.
Another invaluable addition to the clinic in 2021, Amelia comes from a welfare background at the Lost Dogs Home. A perpetual lover of the unloved, she is renowned for giving homes to senior or impaired animals looking for love.
Amelia has aspirations to one day go on to study Veterinary Medicine but is loving the fulfillment nursing is giving her at present.
When we can drag her away from the clinic, she loves experimenting with her vegetarian culinary creations, enjoying time at the beach, and drinking wine with her favourites.
Enriching the life of her squishy little cats, Persian and Egyptian Mau – Lincoln and Maisy.
Lily has been a Veterinary Nurse with us since mid-2020. She completed her Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience at La Trobe University and is now studying her Cert IV with the Australian College of Veterinary Nursing.
Lil’s hobbies include stand-up paddle boarding and spending time at the beach. One of Lil’s career highlights was her trip to Africa back in 2019 where she worked with local wildlife veterinarians and getting up close with the African Big 5.
Our vivacious South African dynamo has brought new life to our reception, welcoming our clients with a radiant smile. Vera’s ability to connect easily with others and show genuine interest in their lives makes for a warm and welcoming reception. Vera embraces our clinic’s values of being a ‘family-friendly practice’ and ‘treating all pets as our own.’ Her commitment to providing exceptional customer service and creating a welcoming environment for our clients is evident in her daily interactions. Outside of the clinic, Vera devotes her time to partner Allan and her gorgeous girls, Rosey and Saige. Vera also shares her home with her adorable and cheeky miniature dachshund, Rusty. As an avid lover of the great outdoors, you’ll often find her playing golf with Allan or off on an adventure fishing or camping.
Sam is a much valued addition to the BVC team, working with us as a part-time receptionist. Sam moved to Geelong, coming from the Philippines back in 2019 to study his bachelor’s degree in Forensic Science.
Back home Sam has a mini schnauzer named “Maiky” and misses him very much. Sam’s hobbies include boxing and watching movies.
