  • Debbie Scotland
    Receptionist - Head Receptionist

    I joined Inner South Veterinary Centre in February 2016 as part of the Reception Team. I have over 5 years Veterinary Reception experience and really enjoy being a part of the “face” of the practice. I love seeing the happy pets in the waiting room and spoiling them with cuddles and treats. I am enjoying learning all about the exotic animals that come through our door as well as the large array of wildlife. At home I have an English Cocker Spaniel, Rusty who fills my day with love and smiles. I also have a cat Zoe who loves to bring us rats and mice through the doggie door! My daughter is training to be a veterinary nurse!

  • Jen Windley
    Office Manager

    I started working for Inner South Veterinary Centre in 2011 after a background in technical related roles. It's a refreshing career change, and I love that my role is varied and every day is different. We are a close-knit bunch, and I am constantly in awe of how hard-working and dedicated the vets, vet nurses and receptionists are at ISVC. I love working with people, and hearing stories about their pets and how happy they make them. 

    I love all animals, but have a special interest in all things feline. I am the proud owner of two beautiful ragdoll cats; Beau and Toby, and two gorgeous black cats; Hope and Henna.

  • Hannah Goode
    Veterinary Nurse

    I joined the Inner South team in April 2015 after moving from Sydney to Canberra. I have over 11 years of veterinary nursing experience and completed my certificate IV in 2005. I spent the last 4 years working in a specialist hospital in Sydney, where I discovered a passion for veterinary oncology. While I love working with cats and dogs, I look forward to learning more about the exotics, particularly birds.

    At home I am kept entertained by Brigit the crazy calico cat, Ariel the golden albino axolotl, Mushu the siamese fighting fish, and a tank full of neon tetras. In Sydney I have a large people family as well as Salome the labrador x great dane, cats Yuki, Arthur, Mo and Stan, and chickens Frankie and Grace.

  • Tim Pye
    Veterinary Nurse - Trainee

    I started working in the Comfort Cattery at Inner South Veterinary Centre in 2010, as I have always been interested in animals. During this time I have enjoyed looking after cats, rabbits, ferrets, rats and birds. This encouraged a desire to learn more about animals, and become more involved in their health and wellbeing, leading me to pursue my Certificate IV in veterinary nursing.

    I enjoy looking after our patients and learning ways in which we can help them and their owners enjoy happy and healthy lives together.

  • Bronnie McGill
    Veterinary Nurse - Trainee

    I have always had a passion for animals and have wanted to work with them since I was little, however as I got older I was torn between working with kids and animals. After nannying for 6 years, and studying primary teaching for one year, I finally decided to pursue my dream in 2015, enrolling in my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and beginning my work placement at Inner South Vets. I have been working as a kennel hand and trainee vet nurse since the beginning of 2016 and I absolutely love it, I am looking forward to finishing my studies and becoming fully qualified Veterinary Nurse in 2017!

    I have always been passionate about animals and their wellbeing. I am forever taking strays in and doing my best to find their homes. I have been a foster carer for a bull arab rescue group for about a year now and always happy to help them. At home I own a Shih Tzu named Snuffie, a Bull Arab X named Dakota, and a beautiful little ragdoll named Blossom. I love my position at Inner South Veterinary Centre and can't wait to study to further my career.

  • Merinda Purcell
    Receptionist

    I joined the ISVC team in January 2016. After completing my diploma of Animal Technology in 2010 I was pleased to have the opportunity to work in a variety of veterinary practices in Canberra, before returning to study in 2012. I also worked as a product advisor for Harrisons bird food, and spent a considerable amount of time training organisations about Harrison benefits for birds. I am passionate about small animals, and love being at ISVC where I get to help care for not only dogs and cats, but also such a large variety of small animals.

    At home I have the pleasure of the company of two budgies, Paris and Leto, two princess parrots, Lottie and Beckett, and the very independent bunny Button.

  • Lisa Bartlett
    Receptionist

    I joined the team in February 2015, coming from 12 years vet nursing in Tasmania. In 2009 I ventured to The United States to undertake an internship at Big Cat Rescue, working to provide husbandry, enrichment and nutrition to rescued big cat breeds. I completed my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2011 and am looking at further studies.

    At home we have a ginger cat named Rodger who rules the street with love; people call his name to receive their daily pat and cuddles. His offsider is a chocolate Chihuahua named Leeroy who despite his shortcomings puts up a fierce front.

  • Sylvia Larsson
    Veterinary Nurse

    I joined the ISVC team in April 2016 after working in a rescue shelter predominately with native wildlife since 2012. I completed my certificate IV in Small Animal and Wildlife Veterinary Nursing in 2015. I then continued to study my certificate in Captive Animal at the Taronga Western Plains Zoo to expand my knowledge with exotics. I adore the weird, wonderful and wacky, happy to cater for all sorts of bizarre patients we may see.

    I am kept very busy at home with my own little menagerie including birds, snakes, lizards and plenty of frogs! I love the enthusiastic team at the Inner South Veterinary Centre and enjoy not only cats and dogs but also the fluffy, feathery, slimy and slithery patients we see.

    Receptionist

    I have always loved animals. Growing up with a menagerie at home, working with animals seemed to come naturally to me. In 2012 I completed my statement of attainment in companion animal services, and after that I worked for just over 4 years as a dog groomer in various different salons.

    At home I share responsibility for a pack of three wonderful dogs; Eclipse the Kelpie X, Envy the Staffy, and Rodger the Pomeranian. We also have three cats; Bridget the Burmese, along with Eris and Hush our rescue moggies. 

    As a long term client of Inner South Veterinary Centre and an avid animal lover, I was delighted to join the team in May 2017.
