Casey, originally from Queensland, made the move to SA 10 years ago to follow her love of animals! Known as our Italian cook here at GVS, she has been nursing for us for 2 years. Casey enjoys fostering kittens which lead to a little white kitten joining her family, Polly. Along with Polly she has her a little Chihuahua called Hero.

When Casey isnt snuggling kittens or cooking up a storm, she loves a day at the beach or a good horror movie!

With a background in aged care, Kylie’s supportive and understanding nature have helped her become the smiling and caring face of our Smithfield Clinic.

Veterinary Nurse 

Denae Moir

With 16+ years under her belt, it's been quite the ride! From bustling clinics to hopping around as a locum, Denae has had the pleasure of caring for all sorts of critters, each leaving their paw print on her heart.

At home, it's all about her furry crew: Puzzle, her wise old horse at 27, Sam, the energetic youngster, Barley,  her loyal golden retriever, and Bailey, the OG cat. They keep her smiling every day and remind her why I fell in love with animal care in the first place.

 

When she's not at work, you'll find her chilling with family, soaking up some waterfront vibes, or hitting the road on her motorbike. Whether Its swapping stories with fellow animal lovers or digging into the latest vet research, her passion for our four-legged pals runs deep.
