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 small animal practice in Melbourne for a “short” stint that’s not over yet!
I ran two practices in Melbourne’s eastern bayside area until mid 2017 when I ‘retired.’ After a couple of overseas trips it was time to get back to doing what I love, checking out animals and helping people plan for their care. It’s fantastic now to be able to concentrate on the fun bits of the job and not deal with the ‘boring’ business bits. I’ve also really enjoyed contributing to and representing the vet profession on various committees.
I’m married, have a 23 year old son, a 9.5 year old Deerhound and a kitty (who rules the house). Interests beyond family, friends and the veterinary profession include travel, food and emerging artists & architects. Obsessions limited to rowing!
