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.
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.
Meredith graduated with Honours from Charles Sturt University in 2016. She began her veterinary career in mixed practice in Victoria before returning to CSU as a sessional academic in the Production Animal team, teaching practical classes in ruminant health and pregnancy diagnosis. At the beginning of 2018, Meredith joined CSU full time as an Associate Lecturer in Theriogenology (veterinary reproduction). She has a special interest in equine reproduction and dentistry and recently completed an equine dentistry course with Equine Veterinary & Dental Services. She joined the clinic in March 2019 and we hope that she can maintain her current enthusiasm for her role for many years to come. In her spare time you will find Meredith riding her horse, Mia or spending quality time with her two dogs, Kip and Matilda.
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 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 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.
