Rachel originally hails from Albany, New York where she completed a triple Bachelors degree in pre Veterinary medicine, Animal science and biology with a minor in chemistry. After getting the opportunity to do a veterinary student exchange program in Japan she decided to study abroad to gain a more diverse knowledge in Veterinary medicine.
Rachel came to Australia in 2012 and in the same year started with Sylvania Veterinary Hospital, many clients and their fur babies would have met Rachel during this time as she took care of our patients after hours while studying until she graduated in 2016.
Rachel has a strong passion for Emergency medicine as well as soft tissue medicine, so much so that she completed further education in emergency and critical care!
Rachel has 2 rescue cats Mickey & mouse along with 2 guineapigs Angus & Fergus. When she is not at the Hospital (which is hardly ever!) she enjoys spoiling the rest of the staff with her amazing American baked goods!
