Tanya graduated with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science degree from the University of Sydney in 2002. Immediately after graduating she accepted a job in the UK in a mixed practice on the Isle of Wight for a year. She continued her travels through Western and Eastern Europe, as well as some of Africa, between her locum jobs around the UK for the next two years. After returning to Sydney, Tanya worked in an inner west practice for five years during which she completed a postgraduate university course in Feline Medicine.
Since starting a family, Tanya has been doing locum work on the north shore and at an after-hours emergency and critical care practice. She began working part-time at 4 Paws Vet in early 2013. Tanya is a passionate veterinarian and loves all aspects of her job, with a special interest in feline medicine, rabbit medicine and soft tissue surgery. When not at work she is the head of the household rounding up her husband, her daughter, her Persian cat called Kenny, and her Rhodesian ridgeback called Chilli.
