Dr Sharina Chan New Graduate Veterinarian BSc, DVM

Hello! I am one of the new faces you may have noticed at Dr Paws Anakie Road as I have just joined the team recently as a veterinarian. After graduating from the University of Melbourne in 2019, I spent some time volunteering at a community vet clinic in Melbourne that works closely with cat rescues. I was born and raised in Hong Kong and spent part of my childhood in the Philippines too since my mum is from there. So, besides English, I also speak Cantonese and some Mandarin!

Pets are important members of our family. It is just amazing how they can bring so much joy into our lives even without the use of words! I became a vet because I want to care for animals in return and I enjoy seeing both pets as well as their owners happy.

Outside of work, I am usually on a hunt for yummy food so you may catch me exploring restaurants and cafes. I also enjoy travelling and my recent trip to New Zealand was amazing. Otherwise, savoring some downtime at home with a good movie makes me happy too. My 13 -year-old Yorkshire Terrier, Gordon is back home in Hong Kong with my parents but I can see myself fostering kittens in no time once I move to Geelong from Werribee! Really looking forward to exploring around Geelong!
