Our Team

It goes without saying that we love all animals great and small but we really do take pride in giving the best possible care and attention to you and your pet!



Meet some of our friendly and professional team:


Dr Roslyn, Veterinarian (B.V.Sc)

I’m one of those people who decided in primary school that they wanted to be a vet!

After graduation, I worked in rural Victoria then in a mixed animal practice in the UK before coming back to small animal practice in Melbourne for a “short” stint that’s not over yet! 

I ran two practices in Melbourne’s eastern bayside area until mid 2017 when I 'retired.' After a couple of overseas trips it was time to get back to doing what I love, checking out animals and helping people plan for their care. It’s fantastic now to be able to concentrate on the fun bits of the job and not deal with the 'boring' business bits. I’ve also really enjoyed contributing to and representing the vet profession on various committees.

I’m married, have a 23 year old son, a 9.5 year old Deerhound and a new kitty (who rules the house). Interests beyond family, friends and the veterinary profession include travel, food and emerging artists & architects. Obsessions limited to rowing!


Nikki, Veterinary Nurse

Hi! I'm Nikki, one of the new full-time Veterinary Nurses at Dr Paws Altona North.

I'm a newly graduated nurse coming to work straight from university. I have completed over 600 hours of placement with various clinics, as well as having volunteered overseas with rescue and endangered animals, including caring for and assisting in raising tigers!

I'm very passionate about working with animals and have been my entire life. I feel that I'm able to help where I can, give animals a voice and promote a gold star health care and treatment for a long, happy and healthy life for you and your fur baby. I also LOVE giving them all a cuddle!

In my spare time I love to go travelling, volunteering with all sorts of animals and all the normal things - spending time with my friends and family. 

I have one furry handful at home - a German shepherd X Kelpie named ‘Cooki’ who is my beautiful psycho!
