  • 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!

  • 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.

    Veterinary Nurse - Trainee

    I started working in the Comfort Cattery at ISVC in 2013 as an after school job as a kennel hand. This then inspired me to pursue a career in Veterinary Nursing. I am currently undergoing a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing at CIT.  I look forward to qualifying in mid-2018 and starting my career nursing animals.

  • Yanawen (Yani) McMahon
    Receptionist

    Having a strong customer service background across industry and an extended love of animals, I was delighted to join the Inner South Vet Centre team in October 2017 as a receptionist. I enjoy the role because of the friendly atmosphere, the customer interaction and of course, the animals. 

    Growing up I lived on a few different properties, and often came across abandoned or injured little creatures such as rats and mice, bunnies, cats and dogs. I enjoyed nursing them back to health, and often ended up adopting them! This love of helping animals lead to me assisting the local WIRES representative with injured wildlife during my time in Tucabia, in northern NSW. 

    When not at work, I’m always studying something, and keeping mentally and physically active! At home I have a beautiful Australian Mist cat officially called Nala, however she is affectionately called ‘Mrs’ and ‘Catty’. I have previously owned a Silky X Jack Russell Terrier. I would love to one day own a Maine coon or Sphynx cat.

  • Lucy Yang
    Receptionist

    I was lucky enough to join the Inner South Vet Centre reception team at the end of 2017. I’ve always found myself drawn to all creatures – big and small, furry and scaly, four-legged and un-legged alike. It is this love for animals and their welfare that has driven my desire to work in the animal industry. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Science whilst also undergoing Certificate II in Animal Studies.

    Having quite a few pets, I consider myself a “Connoisseur of Pet Names”! We have Bruno and Cheeky, my two rescue greyhounds; Aspen and Saskia, my two rescue cats; Hemingway, Margaret, Ziggy and Nugget, my bearded dragons and Ridge-tailed Monitor; and finally Basil, Cinnamon, Ginger and Dill, my various pythons.

    I joined the Inner South Vet Centre team in early 2018 as the Practice Manager. Coming from over 10 years’ experience in practice management for human patients, I am excited to bring these skills and adapt them to assist the amazing team at ISVC.

    Having grown up on a small farm with a menagerie of animals, at home I now have a beautiful family with 2 children, a lazy Whippet called Tully and a yard full of chickens.

    Receptionist

    I came on board in January 2018, joining the reception team. Having already spent the past six years as a Veterinary Receptionist, I felt right at home at Inner South Vet Centre! I am excited to expand my knowledge of exotic pets, scaled, feathered and furry!

    Outside of work I am kept busy competitive swimming with the Tuggeranong Masters Swim Club, and caring for Willow the Burmese cat and Lux the medium haired moggy. I look forward to getting to know you and your pets better.

  • Georgina Creech
    Receptionist

    I joined the ISVC team in April 2016 as a Kennel Hand in the Comfort Cattery, where I was able to interact with and care for boarding cats and small exotics. During this time I loved building a connection with all of the animals I cared for, and of course with their lovely owners. This led me to join the Reception team in February 2018.

    I love seeing the wide range of animals that come through our doors, and I look forward to learning more each day about caring for them and their owners in the waiting room.
