Ellie graduated from James Cook University located in Northern Queensland in 2011. The James Cook veterinary science program was designed and focused for rural students to serve the country areas of Australia. Having this in mind when she graduated, Ellie decided that a rural mixed practice was what she wanted to focus her career on.
Ellie is passionate about horses and particularly equine reproduction. However, she enjoys all aspects of mixed practice and the challenge it brings.
Outside of work, Ellie is a keen and very competitive Endurance rider competing and vetting at many endurance rides around the country including the Tom Quilty. Aside from this Ellie and her husband Andrew run property with cattle and between this and her horses keeps her well and truly busy outside of work.
