Dr Natalie Rouillard, Vet

Natalie grew up in South Africa. Her love of animals as well as medicine drew her to veterinary science from a young age, and she qualified from university of Pretoria in 2002. Natalie worked in South Africa and the UK before settling in Australia. She has worked at Karratha Vet Hospital for the last few years, where her area of special interest is ultrasonography and imaging.

Kara, Nurse Manager

A life-long lover of animal science, Kara turned to veterinary nursing after having previously invested time on other passions such as youth work, entertaining and home-schooling her children. Kara joined the Pets and Vets team in early 2017 when her family moved to Karratha. She enjoys volunteering at animal shelters, reptile and wildlife parks and plans to further develop her education in a broad range of veterinary avenues including captive animals, wildlife and marine biology.
