Lisa James

BVSc (Hons)


Lisa has worked at Seymour Equine Clinic since 2010 before purchasing the clinic in 2015. Lisa graduated from the University of Sydney in 2000 and came to Seymour with 10 years experience working in equine practices in the Hunter Valley Region of NSW. Lisa grew up with horses and spent most of her idle hours riding and reading about them. She has a special interest in artificial breeding and in her spare time, she enjoys riding some of the fruits of her efforts.

Partner

Claire Brown

BVetMed MRCVS


Pomme Claire moved to Seymour in 2015 with her young family. She arrived in Australia in 2004 to do a Southern Hemisphere Breeding season and never returned home! She spent 8 years in Scone in the Hunter Valley in a first opinion and referral equine practice (same one on Lisa's CV) and then was the resident vet on a large thoroughbred stud in South Victoria. Her passion is thoroughbred stud work.


Alice Nixon


Alice graduated from Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga in 2014. She has worked as a veterinarian in the UK, Canada and Australia and has a real passion for working with horses. Special interests include reproduction, dentistry and geriatric care. She has recently moved from the Mansfield district with her partner Dom, three quarter horses and dog Bailey. Alice enjoys riding western performance horses and is currently competing in reining on her horse Ernie. On her day off you might find her exploring the high country, riding one of her many horses.

Dr. Jess Kaczmarek

DVM, BAnVBioSc, DipHBM


Jess graduated from the University of Melbourne in December 2018. She is originally from Cape Town, South Africa and moved to Australia in 2002. She has been passionate about horses from a very young age, as has spent many years competing in eventing and showjumping. Jess enjoys all aspects of equine practice but has a special interest in dentistry, reproduction, and behaviour. Outside of the clinic Jess can be found competing in HRCAV, baking treats or adventuring with her partner Mat and their two dogs Nyah and Vespa. She looks forward to meeting you and all of your horses soon!


Zoe Mumford


Zoe joined Seymour Equine Clinic in August 2016 to help us for the breeding season. She is a valuable asset to the team having a wealth of knowledge and experience of equine nursing practices in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Her extensive CV includes work at a number of thoroughbred stud farms (Arrowfield Stud, Collingrove Stud), Avenel Equine Hospital and Hagyard Equine Medical Institute. Zoe is tackling the role of practise manager at Seymour Equine Clinic but she will still be on hand to care for our hospital cases and intensive care foals (impossible keeping her away)! In her free time, Zoe enjoys keeping fit and her mission for 2017 (if she chooses to accept it) is to get a few of Lisa’s horses back under saddle!

Jess Holt


Jess completed her Equine Nursing Certificate and Diploma of Equine Reproduction at the National Centre of Equine Education. She then went on to study the Bachelor of Equine Science at Charles Sturt University. Jess has worked at Randwick Equine Centre then moved on to manage the hospital and supervise the foaling unit on a large thoroughbred stud. She also worked part time, teaching equine studies and reproduction at the NCEE. Jess is a very passionate nurse and her main challenge is to actually take time off to enjoy horse riding and her camper. Jess joined Seymour Equine Clinic in March 2019 and we feel that she’ll be a real asset to our team.

Kimberley Williams


Kimberley joined the clinic in July 2020 and although this is her first time working in the horse industry, she has loved and owned horses since she was 8 years old. Kimberley brings to the clinic years of experience working across multiple sectors including private, non for profit and government. She has brought a wealth of business knowledge to her role at Seymour Equine Clinic. A long-term resident of the Murrindindi Shire, Kimberley played an integral role in supporting horse owners in the aftermath of the Black Saturday Bushfires by assisting them to access the support both they and their horses needed. Kimberley is a CFA volunteer and joined the Community Engagement Team at District 12 about three years ago. She spends time during the summer talking to horse owners about property preparation and their horse’s survival in a fire event.
