Sally graduated as a veterinarian from The University of Sydney in 1998 before starting work in mixed general practice. She worked mostly with small animals but also did some large animal work, particularly with sheep and horses before having her first child in 2006 and the second in 2007.
She then went back to small animal practice and started working at The Animal Emergency Centre in Canberra before completing a Bachelor Degree in Medicine and Surgery from The Australian National University.
Sally purchased the Summer Street Veterinary Clinic at the start of December 2013 from Sarah Holman as she always wanted to own her own practice and loves working as a vet. Living in Orange also means she can be closer to family and friends.
Sally and her family own a pug and several cats as well as 2 dwarf lop eared rabbits, a couple of ponies and numerous fish.
