Dr Audrey Yeo – Veterinary Surgeon
Glenda Poon – Veterinary Surgeon

Hi there! My name is Glenda. Since graduating from the University of Sydney, I have been working in the Central Coast as a small animal Veterinarian. I am thrilled to be working with the amazing team here at Dr Paws Lane Cove. My special interests include Dermatology, Diagnostic Imaging and Surgery. On my days off, I’d be spending time with my fur-children – Noodles (pictured) and my two guinea pigs Darren and Penelope. My new interests include (trying) to be fitter than Noodles, sewing PJs for Noodles and fleece blankets for my piggies.

Stephanie Joni – Practice Manager

I’m the Practice Manager here at Dr Paws Lane Cove. My role here is to take care of all the vets & support staff who take care of your animals. My focus will always be to ensure we can provide the absolute best care of each client & patient (big or small) that walks through that door. I am fortunate to reside on a farm surrounded by a delightful array of pets, including two cats (British Short Hair and Domestic Medium Hair), a French Bulldog, a Netherland Dwarf Rabbit, and six cows. In my spare time, I actively participate in community sports, engaging in activities such as Oz tag and soccer in the Hills District. Recently, I’ve discovered a newfound passion for Archery, aspiring to represent Australia in the 2028 Olympics.

Carly Davy – Head Veterinary Nurse

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.

Avash Koju – Veterinary Nurse

I’m a Veterinarian from Nepal who graduated in 2019 and has been caring and treating animals ever since. I’m currently working here at Dr Paws as a Veterinary Nurse and I feel very happy to be working here and taking care of all of the animals. I moved to Australia in February of this year and have spent most of my spare time exploring new places and trying new things.

Isabelle Bergin – Senior Veterinary Nurse

I have been working as a veterinary nurse since graduating in 2021. I love all animals which is the reason I joined the profession and love all aspects of the job. I recently moved to Sydney from Ireland where my two dogs, Bailey and Lila, remain. I spend my free time exploring Sydney and the surrounding beaches.

Ashleigh (Ash) Jones – Animal Attendant

I’m so excited to be working with the team of Dr Paws Lane Cove to help and support all of our furry patients. Some background about me, I’ve studied Certificate II in Animal Studies at TAFE NSW and Certificate III in Wildlife and Exhibited Animal Care at Taronga Zoo Sydney. In the near future I will be studying Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing at TAFE NSW. At home I have three fur babies, Rosie (pictured) the Golden Retriever, Simba the Ragdoll, and Stormy the Domestic Long Hair cat. I adopted Stormy as a rescue kitten and he is my pride and joy. When I’m not spending time with my furry friends, I enjoy horse riding, shopping, and spending time with my family and friends.
