Hi my name is Tonia. I joined the CHVH family in 2013 after a recent change in career.
Whilst growing up our family always had animals and I always held caring for animals close to my heart. Working at Coffs Harbour Veterinary Hospital has enabled me to fulfil one of my dreams in life.
I absolutely love my job and due to the diversity of each and every day it is never ever boring and I am constantly learning – which I LOVE. We face different challenges and hurdles everyday in order to care and deliver the best medical assistance we can to your beloved fur babies. I love coming to work everyday and spending time with my second family – the CHVH family. And of course all of our beautiful patients we see everyday.
In my spare time I love getting into the outdoors doing some exercise, going camping with some of my best friends & enjoying time with my partner Guy or just playing about with my beautiful animals – my dog Bear & my cats Lola & Arlo.
I enjoy all aspects of my job and it’s too hard to pick which part is my favourite, but particular interests lie in routine surgeries, pre & post operative care of our patients while they are recovering in hospital and of course seeing them go home happier and healthier than before – makes our job so much more rewarding. Or just chatting to some of our lovely clients each and every day.
