Viv is a 2007 Massey graduate, who initially worked in mixed-practice in Greymouth, before heading north.
Viv is interested in dairy cattle medicine and small animal medicine and surgery.
She finds there is a bit less travelling here, as on the West Coast, farms could be hours away, miles up dead-end valleys. There is also a bit less snow (actually she hasn’t seen any here yet!) and the sand flies aren’t as big.
When not working, Viv’s enjoys spending time with her wonderful family, Viv and her husband have 2 daughters. If she gets any spare time she tries to get out on her bike, mountain-biking, and into the great outdoors
