Samantha grew up on the South Coast and is currently living in Kiama. She lives with her partner who's name is also Sam! Our lovely Samantha graduated from Sydney University Veterinary Science in 2017 with first class Honors and joined the CAVH family in 2018, soon after graduating.
Sam currently has three fur babies, she has a bunny rabbit named Presley. Presley was adopted a few years ago, and he's very cheeky. He likes to get into the fridge when you open it and look for treats all over the house. She also has a dog named Louie who is a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen. Louie is an A+ student at Nose Works run by the Dog Project. Since coming to Companion Animal Vets Sam also adopted a smoochy cat called Frida Kahlo.
Sam enjoys travelling, camping, snowboarding and stand up paddleboarding. In summer she likes to go to the beach and take Louie for walks, so you might catch her there!
When asked what she enjoys about being a vet, Sam answered “I like seeing animals going home, feeling 100% and that first rush of excitement when they see their families again, it really makes all the sad parts of the job worth it”
Samantha will be taking maternity leave in July 2021 for the first human baby addition to her family!
Sam is looking forward to meeting you and your fur babies soon!!
