Viv is a 2007 Massey graduate, who initially worked in a mixed-practice in Greymouth, before heading north. Her biggest interest is in dairy cattle medicine and small animal medicine and surgery. She finds there is a bit less travelling here, as, on the West Coast, farms could be hours away, miles up dead-end valleys. There is also a bit less snow (actually she hasn’t seen any here yet!) and the sandflies aren’t as big.
When not working, Viv enjoys spending time with her wonderful family. If she gets any spare time she tries to get out in the great outdoors on her mountain bike.
