Growing up in the highlands of Papua New Guinea…..

Sophie decided she was going to be a vet at a very young age. When she wasnʼt at school or caring for her menagerie of pets, Sophie would spend time watching surgery at the local vet clinic.

Sophie spent her final years of high school in Perth, graduating from Murdoch University in 1992, the same year as John. Upon graduating she spent 2 years doing small animal work at Victoria Park Vet Clinic.

A move to Sydney saw her spend 5 years working in small animal practice, before returning to Perth at the end of 1999. Her beautiful daughter Ella was born in 2000. Sophie started working at Mosman Park in early 2002. Outside of work and family life, Sophie enjoys swimming, cooking ( especially baking sweet treats for the staff ), and spending time with her two dogs Roxy and Willow and her Burmese cat Ted.

From a young age Jo had a very deep compassion for…

From a young age Jo had a very deep compassion for animals and knew she wanted to be a vet when she grew up. Following this dream, she studied at Murdoch University and graduated in 1983.

Becoming a practising vet opened an amazing world of rewards and challenges as well as great opportunities to travel and work overseas. In England and Scotland she worked in mixed practice and enjoyed the classic James Herriot lifestyle, visiting farm-folk and treating all creatures great and small, which of course involved many cold late nights in a field or barn during calving or lambing time. Despite encountering a great variety of “exotic” animals in the UK, never in her wildest dreams did she imagine being asked to examine and de-flea a South American bird-eating spider!

On returning to Australia she commenced a Residency in Small Animal Medicine and Surgery at Queensland University, after which she worked in a variety of locations on the east and west coasts, eventually spending 15 years based in a Perth small animal practice. She has also been a lecturer in the Veterinary Nursing course at Bentley TAFE, and a tutor in Animal Welfare and Ethics at Murdoch University.

In December 2015 she commenced a position at Mosman Park Vet Hospital and really enjoys working within this happy and dedicated team of vets and nurses. Within her role as a vet she considers it a privilege to be able to support the bond between people and their pets and enjoys the multitude of aspects that a career in veterinary medicine and surgery brings.

She has rescued a string of waifs over the years including several wonderful cats and dogs. After little “Bosun” passed on a year or two ago, she has been showering the love on other people’s furry friends, until she decides the time is right for another pet!

On a slightly different note, in 2002 Jo decided to pursue her creative interests and trained in Physical Theatre. One thing led to another, and in 2008 she was honoured to be able to join the Perth Clown Doctor (Hospital Clown) Team. Through this part-time work joy, laughter and compassion can be brought to the patients, families and staff at both Princess Margaret and Fiona Stanley hospitals. In her spare time she loves to travel, cycle, sail, surf, hike; pretty much anything involving the great


Here at Mosman Park Vet, you can feel at ease with our experienced Nurses who understand your pets needs.



Molly has been working at Mosman Park Veterinary Hospital since November 2011 after graduating from AVT.

Molly lives with her partner Sam and Australian Bulldog Arnold. She enjoys playing netball on a Saturday afternoon and travelling around the world to different places. Her love for animals came from growing up with three dogs, Noddy, Spike and Lucy and always finding the stray cat when on holiday with the family!



Sarah has always wanted to work with animals and as a youngster aspired to be a vet or a Canadian Mountie!

Sarah completed a Bachelor of Science at Murdoch University, majoring in Biology and Environmental Science. After graduating she headed to Queensland to complete a Diploma of Wilderness Reserves and Wildlife at the University of Queensland.

Sarah has just become a proud parent to Eric, a four month old ginger tabby and continues to wait patiently for a yellow labrador puppy!



Shannon always wanted a career involving animals, graduating from AVT and working at Mosman Park since 2012.  Shannon has two rescue cats named Honey and Nugget and a beautiful 4 year old Aussie Shepherd named Marlee. Marlee loves long walks on the beach. In her spare time Shannon enjoys playing softball and cooking.
