Brendon Bullen, Veterinarian   Hi there, my name is Brendon and I joined the Kelburn team in 2012 after spending the previous 6 years working as a companion animal vet in NZ and the UK. I love it here at Kelburn, and have enjoyed getting to know everyone that comes to the clinic.      I enjoy all aspects of veterinary science, with a special interest in dentistry and exotics. As well as looking after cats and dogs, I run a referral service for rabbits and other small mammals.  I have a passion for native wildlife, and love the fact that Wellington has Zealandia right in the heart of the city. I enjoy tramping, mountain biking and exploring NZ with my partner, Melanie.

Rachel Procter, Veterinarian   Hi, I'm Rachel, and I'm excited to be the newest addition to the Kelburn team in 2018.  I graduated from Massey University as a vet in 2012; and more recently I have been lucky to get the opportunity to go back to Massey to complete an internship in Companion Animal Medicine and Surgery.  I love the problem-solving aspect of veterinary medicine, and enjoy medical cases, soft tissue surgery, and performing basic orthopaedic procedures. I am also studying part time towards a Masters degree in Veterinary Medicine.  In my spare time I am a keen tramper and do volunteer wilderness search and rescue with my SAR dog "Fledge".

Emma, Team Leader and Veterinary Nurse     Hi my name is Emma. I graduated Otago Polytech with a Certificate in Veterinary Nursing in 2012 and began a role as a Veterinary Nurse at Pet Doctors The Gardens where I worked for four years. During this time I went on to complete my National Diploma in Veterinary Nursing in 2015.  In 2016 I made the move to Kelburn Vets for a Senior Veterinary Nurse position where the increased work with exotic species has helped increase my knowledge and provided many new challenges. My special interest is anaesthesia and medical nursing - especially with critical patients.  At the start of 2018 I was promoted to Team Leader which has provided plenty of new challenges. I am really enjoying the change of role and I'm really excited to see how it develops over the next 12 months.  I have one sassy cat named Balto who likes to sit around at home all day and eats while I'm at work.

Crystal, Veterinary Nurse     Hi, I'm Crystal. I moved to Dunedin to study Zoology at the University of Otago. I wanted a hands on career with animals so I went on to complete my Diploma in veterinary nursing at the Otago Polytechnic.  I worked at a vet clinic in Dunedin for a year before moving up to Wellington and joining the Kelburn team at the beginning of 2018.  I have a particular interest in canine behaviour and surgical anaesthesia, but I'm loving working more with exotics.
