Dr Natasha Alexander - Veterinary Surgeon

My Vet Springfield Lakes - Vet Surgeon - Dr Natasha Alexander

Natasha graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor in Veterinary Science (Honours) in 2014 and joined the MyVet team in early 2015. Prior to completing her degree, Natasha spent several years volunteering in the RSPCA vet clinic. Natasha has a keen interest in internal medicine, particularly oncology, but doesn’t mind the occasional soft tissue surgery.

It is rare to find Natasha without her little baby girl, Kyla, nearby. When not at work or travelling Natasha finds herself kept busy looking after her Border Collie, Lexington, and her menagerie of felines, Tiger, Monkey and Clicky.

My Vet Springfield Lakes - Vet Nurse Jessica Rayner

Jessica began her career in Veterinary Nursing in 2012 and has loved every minute of it, pursuing her Certificate in Veterinary Nursing and growing with the clinic. She has a mischievous mini Foxy X Blue Heeler named Jeffery who is always up to no good, and a sweet little Kelpie X named Beauty who is a little bit off with the fairies most of the time.

Jessica and her partner Jeremy live happily with their fur-babies.....unless there are lawnmowers about!

 

Nikki - Veterinary Nurse

Nikki has been nursing in both equine nursing and small animal care since 2009.  Her favourite thing is seeing unwell pets go home healthy to their families. Nikki's main goal is to educate pet parents with the latest information so that the best possible care is provided for all families. 

When Nikki is not at the clinic she is spending time with her husband and two children, an 8 year appaloosa gelding, 2 spoilt Ridgebacks, and a naughty Bengal cat.  Make sure you say hi to Nikki next time you are in the clinic.

Jaspurr – Clinic Cat

My Vet Springfield Lakes - Clinic Cat Jaspurr

Hi everyone. My name is Jaspurr and I have been the Boss of the clinic since 2011. I like to greet all the cats that come to visit, purely just to say hi.....

I have the best aunties in the world that love me, cuddle me (yukkkk!) and, most importantly, feed me! I LOVE food, and I especially love my favourite auntie, Ann.

Clinic life is good to me. I get to see birds, those furry dog things and have company all day from my favourite people.
