Our Valuable Team Members

Erin O’Neil   
Veterinarian

Erin is a wonderful new graduate Veterinarian who joined our team in December 2017. She has quickly become a vital team member and is enjoying getting to know our wonderful clients and patients.  Erin survived the long slog of Uni and the challenging many years to get to where she is today. Now her adventure as a Veterinarian has begun.  Erin grew up in suburban Brisbane and then ventured a little further west to attend university at The University of Queensland, where she grew accustomed to a more relaxed rural lifestyle. Now Erin and her boisterous Dalmatian, Bernie, have taken the leap and moved interstate to the beautiful Coffs Coast where she can fulfill two lifelong dreams; working as a vet and living near the beach.

“I am so excited to be a part of the Moonee Beach team and look forward to meeting you and your pets!” – Erin
