OFFICE AND NURSES
A fantastic team of dedicated vets and caring
nursing and admin staff fully committed to getting the
best result for your all-important horse or pony.
Sandy - Reception
Sandy joined us in March 2021 having worked in administration customer service positions over the past 15 years at an RTO and large bank.
For the past 12 years, Sandy has owned horses and been involved in the equine world through her daughter competing. Sandy has since come off the side-lines and started to ride and compete herself. So finding a job that involves her personal passion she considers to be a bonus.
Carla - Accounts/reception
Behind every “good business” is a good woman and in this case it’s Carla.
Carla is our bookkeeper and accounts payable person, who manages to keep everything running smoothly. It is not uncommon to find her hanging onto a horse or manning the reception, something that was never in the job description.
Carla somehow manages to fine tune the running of the business between time spent with husband Michael and their two children Jackson and Hayley.
Fiona - Head Nurse
Fiona first joined the team at Belvoir as an eager work experience student in 2007, after many years owning and working with horses she decided that nursing would be the right career fit for her. After seeing her potential Belvoir quickly snapped her up and offered her a traineeship. Upon completion of her qualification Fiona remained apart of the team for many years in the head nurse role. In 2012 Fiona flew the coop to spread her wings and see practice in other parts of w.a and n.s.w furthering her experience, knowledge and abilities, then returning to us in 2018. Fiona’s main areas of interest and expertise include but are not limited to, all aspects of reproduction, anaesthesia, foal intensive care and general patient care.
Lauren - Nurse
Lauren has recently re-located from NSW with 5 years experience as a vet nurse.
In her personal life, she enjoys riding competitively within showjumping and eventing up to 3* level. As part of the thoroughbred community she regularly re-trains ex racehorses off the track and prepare them for their second career. She has spent many years coaching younger riders which she sincerely enjoys.
Lauren is also passionate about Australia’s native flora and fauna and has volunteered with both Wildlife Aid and WIRES, rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing injured and homeless native animals.
Rachel - Nurse
Rachel graduated as a vet nurse from Applied Vocational training in early 2019, spending the rest of the year completing work experience at multiple different practices. She began work at Belvoir later that year.
Rachel has been riding for as long as she can remember, having always had a passion for horses and their wellbeing. On her weekends she enjoys showjumping at casual competitions. She has previously worked at a riding school, for many years, with horses of all different ages and backgrounds.
Currently she is continuing her studies in Laboratory Medicine at Curtin Uni while working at Belvoir on her days off.
Reilly - Trainee nurse/Stud
She has completed her Bachelor of Paramedical science and has worked extensively in multiple industries including a drug and alcohol support worker helping people detox from illicit drug use.
Reilly joined the Belvoir vet nursing team in 2020 after deciding to make the switch from humans to equine care and has been loving her time here ever since. Reilly thoroughly enjoys talking to clients about their horses. In her spare time Reilly can be found camping, four wheel driving or hiking with her dog.
