At VetEnt veterinary clinics, your animals are in safe hands. Our staff are not only great with animals, we’re great with people too. Introducing VetEnt Lincoln/Leeston team: Amanda Multi - Clinic Coordinator I originally entered the VetEnt team as a nurse in 2010, now working as the Clinic Coordinator over the Lincoln and Leeston clinics. Living in the area for the past 16 years with my husband and children I have recently settled in Doyleston. I enjoy heading to the West Coast to spend time with family and friends. Kim Nurse - Leeston I live on a sheep and cropping farm in Killinchy with my husband. We have two grown children, one granddaughter and a retired huntaway named Frank. I have worked as a vet nurse/receptionist across the clinics for over 15 years. I enjoy seeing all our local farmers and pet owners at our clinics. Megan Vet Nurse - Lincoln I have been Vet Nursing for 15 years and working for VetEnt for two years. When I’m not at work I can be found spending time with family and friends or lacing up my running shoes and enjoying the great outdoors. Leesa Large Animal Veterinarian I have been a part of the VetEnt Lincoln/ Leeston team for the last few year. I’ve been on maternity leave but recently returned to help cover the afterhours roster. I have come from a farming background of sheep and crop just outside of Lincoln. I live local in Lincoln with my husband and 7 month old son. India Large Animal Veterinarian Originally from the UK, I have been a farm vet for 7 years in a range of places, from the wild west coast to scones country, both Devon and Cornwall and the plains of Canterbury. I am now in Lincoln with my menagerie of dogs, horses, heep and cows. Oh, and my partner. Loads to keep me busy. Belinda Veterinarian - Lincoln My family and I recently returned to New Zealand, and I joined the Lincoln VetEnt team at the start of this year. Since my graduation from Massey University in 2002, I have been fortunate to care for a wide range of animals in many countries, as far afield as Mongolia and as tropical as Samoa. Outside of vet life, I enjoy making the most of local bush walks, playing ultimate frisbee, and curling up in the sunshine with a good book. Eilish Veterinarian - Leeston I have been in NZ for nearly 30 years having arrived from Yorkshire England on my OE. I live just outside Southbridge with my husband and two children. I love meeting and treating the pets in this area. When I am not working I enjoy tramping with friends, gardening, and kayaking with my family. Ann Veterinarian I came back to clinical practice after a long sojourn where I was working in the veterinary field but in a hands-off role. After 20+ years in the US, and six in Australia, I moved to within 60km of the farm I grew up on. Getting to know our local farms as a large animal veterinarian is a privilege. Marjon Veterinarian - Lincoln Originally from The Netherlands, where I graduated from Utrecht University. I have been working as a small animal vet in Christchurch since 2016, and am currently enjoying working between the VetEnt Lincoln and Ferrymead clinics. Nicola Vet Nurse- Lincoln/Leeston I have worked as a Qualified Vet nurse for 10 years. I work between the Leeston and Lincoln clinics and have a special interest in animal behaviour. I live locally and enjoy taking my two dogs to the beach and hacking around on my horse. Maddie Receptionist I am the receptionist at Vetent Lincoln and graduated as a vet nurse from CPIT last year. I grew up on a dairy farm in Rakaia with lots of different animals. I am currently building a house in Leeston with my partner Michael and we own a beautiful French Bulldog named Alissa. Katharine Veterinarian - Lincoln Originally from the UK, I have worked as a vet in practices in Scotland, England, Auckland and Tauranga before coming to Christchurch and joining the VetEnt team at our previously owned Halswell clinic. I recently joined the team at VetEnt Lincoln. Chloe Vet Nurse I’m a qualified vet nurse who graduated with a diploma in 2017. I have a seven-year-old collie x called Bella, who goes everywhere with me. I’m particularly interested in animal behaviour and will soon be running puppy school in the near future. Can’t wait to meet everyone’s fur babies! Rob Veterinarian I’ve been working as a veterinarian since the mid 80s, starting first in Wanaka before working in the UK. I work predominantly as a production animal vet, sharing my time between mid Canterbury and local Selwyn clients. Jess Veterinarian Technician Originally from the North Island, I have been in the Veterinary industry since 2006. After moving South, I joined VetEnt Riverside in 2013 and have recently relocated to Christchurch and joined the VetEnt Lincoln team. I like having the best of both worlds... city living and working rural. Jamie Vet Nurse - Lincoln I’m a veterinary nurse, who began working weekends at VetEnt Ferrymead and came about my position here in Lincoln in late September 2017.
