Dominique Both – Practice Manager

I have been working at Dr Paws since June 2021 as the Practice Manager. I have been a veterinary nurse for 9 years now & absolutely love my job. I really enjoy being able to help animals & build relationships with clients. I have 3 beautiful cats at home, Tilly & Bo who are domestic short hair’s who I have rescued & recently got Kaiyltn who is a sphynx. In my spare time I love going for walks & exploring new places, most of the time I’m at the beach or trying out a new cafe.

Rachel Flynn – Veterinary Nurse

I qualified as a veterinary nurse in Ireland in 2016 and have worked in small animal practice ever since. Two years ago I decided to move to Australia to travel and work and have settled in well. I have always loved animals from a young age and have a dog at home in Ireland called Rocky who is now 15 years old. I enjoy every aspect of veterinary nursing but the most rewarding part is nursing a sick animal back to health and seeing them back to their old self.

Camilla Cavarra – Veterinary Nurse

Nurse Camilla is a proud mum of 2 beautiful children and 1 fur child “Pepper” – a 3yr old Rhodesian Ridgeback X. Camilla has been a vet nurse for the last 9 years, changing careers later in life to pursue a career which she loves that is both varied and challenging, and one where she can make a positive difference to the lives of animals (and their owners) on a daily basis. She loves spending her weekends at a dog friendly beach or park with the entire family!

I’m very excited to be part of an industry where I can help animals every day, and am looking forward to meeting all of your pets! I have a little ginger rescue kitten named Henry who has just turned one. He is my pride and joy. You’ll commonly find him lazing about the house or taking up all the room on the bed. In my spare time I enjoy getting out of the city to explore the local National Parks, going to the beach, and travelling up the coast to visit my family.
