Gemma graduated with an Applied Science degree, majoring in Veterinary Technology in 2012 and soon began working in a rural mixed animal practice in Dalby. She grew up in rural Queensland and finds Toowoomba the perfect balance of city/country living. She enjoys all aspects of work within a veterinary clinic as well as interacting with a wide variety of animal species including cats, dogs, horses, cattle and wildlife. In her spare time Gemma enjoys riding her horse Doc and competing in the equestrian sport of eventing. She is also kept busy looking after her cat Ralph as well as her adorable (and neurotic) little dog Tess.
