Liana did competitive Horse Eventing as a youngster and started her employment in the Animal Care industry as a Groomer’s assistant in 1998. Dr Jedda recognised Liana’s aptitude with animals, (Liana has a natural calmness and gift for handling stressed patients), introducing Liana to Vet Nurse training soon after. Liana studied for two years and obtained her Veterinary Nurse qualification before leaving to work in the UK for two years, getting experience in a wide range of emergency centres, including "live in" Vet Nurse positions.
Liana has been with EDVH since her return from the UK in 2002, now working two days a week whilst being a mum to two wonderful boys. She enjoys her furkids Zippy, a 10 year old black and white kitty kat, who was adopted by Liana after being left at EDVH as a tiny kitten and Flynn, a two year old Koolie x Kelpie (pictured).
Shannan has been a valuable member of our team for just over a year. We are lucky that she now calls Melbourne home, after relocating from the sunny Central Coast in NSW.
Shannan has a Bachelor of Zoology, however has found her true passion in Veterinary Nursing. She is interested in the surgical side of the profession as well as being involved in solving and treating medical cases. She is also looking to advance her knowledge in Behaviour studies. Shannan's obsession with puppies is one of the reasons she successfully runs our Puppy Preschool Program! As well as being an excellent teacher, she will not hesitate to cuddle and play with any of the puppies that visit the clinic.
Shannan has three dogs, Tess – a mini foxy, Marley – a maltese cross and Melody – a chocolate labrador, and looks forward to growing her furry animal family in the future. When she is not working, you will find Shannan playing football in her local comp, exploring the sites of Melbourne or simply reading a book in the sun at home.
It is unlikely you haven't met Shannan on your visit to the clinic, but if not, please come and say hi, she is excited to meet you all!
If you have been to the clinic lately, you may have come across Amy Sullivan. Amy has worked in the area for the past 8 years (most recently just down the road at Templestowe Vet Clinic) and we are very lucky to have her join Dr Julian and the clinic as our new Veterinary Nurse.
Originally from Albury, Amy completed her Animal Studies and Veterinarian Nurse qualifications in 2007. She has lived in Melbourne for 8 years now and we are happy to hear she isn't in a hurry to leave.
Amy enjoys all aspects of the clinic, but the clients and patients are her passion and she has completed education in Frontline Management to continue to develop her knowledge.
When not at work, Amy likes to continue to explore Melbourne, whether it be getting out in nature for a walk or day trips to the beach. Amy is always on call by Bailey, her male ginger and white Domestic Medium Hair cat.
