Our team

Our team of vets and nurses have trained hard to be the best in our fields, and we continue to maintain and expand our knowledge and skills at every opportunity. 

Dr Bethany Hooper – Lead Veterinarian (B.V.Sc)

I have always loved animals and knew I wanted to be a vet when I was 5. To me, pets are not just animals – they are members of our family.

Dr Roslyn Nichol – Veterinarian (B.V.Sc)

I’m one of those people who decided in primary school that they wanted to be a vet! After graduation, I worked in rural Victoria then in a mixed animal practice in the UK before coming back to Melbourne.

Dr Hannah Clifton – Veterinarian
(BSc, DVM)

Our pets are integral family members. I have a cheeky, spoiled 12-year-old Maltese x Shih Tzu, Baku, so I understand how incredibly special the human-animal bond is.

Dr Elicia Cheah – Veterinarian (BSC DVM)

Hi, I’m Elicia, and I’m originally from Malaysia! I graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2021, and joined Dr Paws Altona North in February 2022. While I was in high school, I decided to combine my love for medicine and animals, which naturally led me to become a vet. 

As a pet owner myself, I’m fully aware of the role that pets play in our everyday life and I believe that every pet deserves the best standards of care. I’m also passionate about educating pet owners and working with them to promote their pets’ health and wellbeing. 

When I’m not working, you can find me curled up with a book or binging K-dramas. I also enjoy cooking and trying out new recipes to share with friends and family.

Dr Devangi Jani – Veterinarian (BVM & S)

Hi, I’m Devangi! I’m from London and I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2023. 

I’ve always had a love for all things furry and getting my beagle cross, Alfie, highlighted to me the integral role vets play in the health and wellbeing of our four legged family members. I’m passionate about client education and free fear handling and I hope to work with pet owners as a team to provide the best care possible for their pets to keep them happy, healthy and thriving! 
In my spare time I enjoy doing a variety of crafts and DIY as well as hiking and escaping the city when I can. I also love catching up with friends over brunch or going into the city to explore all the alleyways and coffee shops!

Natasha Macadam – Practice Manager & Senior Veterinary Nurse

I completed my Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2017, and have been successfully pursuing my career in nursing ever since. I fill my spare time by caring for my furbabies Thistle, Haggis and Dougal, who are all spunky ragdolls!

Mariam Ayad – Head Veterinary Nurse

For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to work with animals. I have always loved animals and seem to form a special connection with them. I am super excited to be learning about animals and how to care for them. I can’t wait to continue growing in this industry.

Hayley Reynolds – Veterinary Nurse

Growing up all I can remember is my love for animals; being able to help nurture animals is truly a blessing to be able to do each day.

Brittany Hanegraaf –  Veterinary Nurse

I have always had a love for animals, as well as a passion for their health and wellbeing, so I always aspired to pursue my passion by gaining a career within the animal care industry.

Jasmine Trifilo – Veterinary Nurse

As a vet nurse, working with animals is a calling that fills your heart with purpose. The joy of seeing a sick pet recover and witnessing the gratitude of their owner’s is a constant reminder of why I chose this deeply warming profession.
