Growing up on a farm in Orange, NSW, a love of animals began early for our founder, Dr Tanya. Even at the age of five, Dr Tanya knew she wanted to become a vet.
After studying Veterinary Science at Charles Sturt University, Dr Tanya worked in busy small animal practices in Canberra and Sydney, where she developed a love and skill for small animal general practice. Dr Tanya has also dedicated a large portion of her career working for non-for profit animal organisations and regularly travels to the Northern Territory and overseas to deliver veterinary care to remote communities.
Dr Tanya is excited to return to Canberra to create The Foreshore Vet - a community-focussed practice supported by a team of highly qualified and dedicated professionals. Dr Tanya lives with her husband Will, Harry the rescue Labrador and Nelly the ex-Guide Dog.

Dr Amanda has joined the practice having owned local Canberra small animal practices over the past 30 years. She is a permanent fixture in the Canberra community and her established surgical skills are something we are very proud to offer you at The Foreshore Vet.
Dr Amanda employed Tanya as a new grad veterinarian several years ago, imparting her knowledge and skills. Now Dr Amanda has rejoined forces with Tanya in her new venture at The Foreshore Vet.
After graduating from Veterinary Science at the University of Sydney, Amanda worked in rural mixed practice domestically but also overseas before returning home to work with small animals.
Dr Amanda has a special interest in small animal surgery and has undertaken further study for her membership to the Australia and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists. She is currently pursuing ophthalmology as an area of interest. Additionally, Dr Amanda is passionate about improving the quality of life for brachycephalic (flat faced) breeds.

Bronnie met Tanya at the beginning of her career working in a busy Canberra practice, where Tanya also was beginning as a new young vet. They quickly became a junior nurse/vet pair. Together they grew and expanded their respective skillsets, became great friends and now Bronnie looks forward to supporting her friend as she embarks on The Foreshore Vet. She joins the practice as a highly proficient nurse, with a special focus on canine behaviour and training.
Bronnie's love lies with puppies, she is adept at dog behaviour training, striving to provide young dogs with all encompassing care and safety as they navigate early life with their new human families. You can find Bronnie heading up puppy school classes at The Foreshore Vet, when she isn't nursing.
Bronnie lives with her partner and son Jude. She owns the especially charismatic Staffy Biggie, who you won't fail to recognise!
