Dr Natasha Alexander
Vet Surgeon

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. 

Dr Dion Woodborne
Orthopaedic & Specialised Soft Tissue Surgeon
  • BVSc
  • MANZCVS (Surgery)

Being born and raised in South Africa, Dion had the kind of introduction into a career in the care of animals that Australian trained vets only get to dream about. As a school leaver, Dion studied Nature Conservation, and worked for 3 years for the Natal Parks Board as a ranger, working amongst the amazing wildlife of Africa on land and at sea. Dion’s exciting experiences include getting up close and personal with Great White Sharks and Seals off the South African Coast, whilst participating in the tagging and monitoring of these magnificent creatures.

Dion completed his Veterinary degree and went on to work in large and small animal practices in South Africa, the UK, and NZ before settling on the Sunshine Coast with his young family.  Their home is a menagerie of creatures, with birds and dogs, and a blue tongue lizard, which Dion and his daughters reared after rescuing it from a roadside as an injured baby. Dion is an avid water sportsman; he has solo swum the English Channel and is now a keen kite boarder.

Dion is passionate about surgery, and in 2011, after rigorous written and oral examinations, he gained his Membership to the Australian College of Veterinary Surgeons, in Small Animal Surgery.
