We work together to make sure your pet’s health always comes first.
Dr. Cherlene Lee
Dr. Cherlene Lee grew up surrounded by animals and wanting to change their lives for the better. She moved to Sydney from Malaysia to pursue her veterinary studies at the University of Sydney. Upon graduation, she expanded her knowledge and gained experience by working at different veterinary hospitals. Inspired by the importance of client education and the vet-animal bond, she sought to found a practice dedicated to empowering every paw-parent to be the best paw-parent they can be. This dream became a reality and My Vet Animal Hospital opened its doors in March 2014.
Cherlene is dedicated to making My Vet more than just a vet hospital by giving back to the community through the Pledge 1% movement and hosting regular events (or “Pawty” as we like to call it) to celebrate pet ownership. She also has a very strong interest in nutrition. The loves of Cherlene’s life are her two rescue furbabies: Siao Chu and Chairman Mao.
Dr. Yuka Kozawa is the effervescent, ray of sunshine at My Vet with a deep empathy with anxious furbabies. After rescuing her furbaby Meeya, she has developed an interest in behavioural medicine and aims to make every consult feel as happy and safe as possible. In her spare time, you’ll find her defeating the (virtual) forces of darkness and spending quality time with her husband and their three furbabies.
Dr. Charis is known for being the over-enthusiastic nerd who finds everything interesting. She’s lost both her furbabies in recent years, so she spends all her love on…everyone else, human and furbaby alike. Her interests lie in dermatology and internal medicine – the basics of keeping a furbaby happy and healthy, she thinks. When she’s not at the library or trying to sneak a cuddle with your furbaby, you’ll find her in the kitchen, attempting to cobble food together.
Kazia has been with My Vet Animal Hospital since the very beginning! And we’re super lucky to have her, what with her 8 years of experience in the industry. As practice manager, Kazia ensures the day-to-day operations of our pawesome hospital run smoothly and that every furbaby who walks through the door is treated like absolute royalty.
She first had her start with equine medicine but, after falling ill, discovered the incredible impact of therapy animals to health and wellbeing. Now, along with her Avignon, her cuddly Devon Rex, she has her little medical assistance dog, Obi, who travels with her everywhere, and now promotes himself as My Vet’s Chief Operating Officer.
Have you met Bao? Born in Vietnam but raised in French-speaking Canada, she would happily chatter on about Vietnamese food in French. Bao had spent more than a decade nursing in Canada before finally visiting Australia and falling in love with our little My Vet family. She brings with her a breadth of experience, having worked in a variety of practices, including emergency hospitals. While she loves food, she loves being active all the more! She practises Muay Thai and jiujitsu, plays volleyball, and loves hiking. Bao misses her rescued furbabies, Killah and Rambo, who are still in Canada, and presently spends all her time spoiling Mr. Pebbles.
Jenna discovered her life’s calling at an animal sanctuary in Thailand where she volunteered for 3 months. Her volunteering inspired her to work toward becoming a veterinary nurse, so she can dedicate her life to helping furbabies. She has two furbabies of her own: her little golden girl, Tillie, and her cheeky little rescue puppy, Jinny.
Giselle came to Australia four years ago to study environmental management. Choosing to be more hands-on, she pursued veterinary nursing and finds herself at My Vet where she makes it her goal to treat every cat like royalty. An adventurer with a passion for wildlife, it has always been her dream to work at a safari in South Africa. She hopes to one day contribute to the field of environmental conservation.
After completing a Biomedical Engineering/Medical Science degree, Jess re-discovered her passion for animals. Never the sort to take passions lightly, she chose to pursue the life of a veterinarian. When she’s not being too occupied with university, she keeps herself busy with her furbabies: Talia, a gorgeous Rhodesian Ridgeback, and Laith and Luna, her two rescue Persians. Outside her furbaby obsession, she loves pole dancing and can be found dancing in the studio to her newest routine.
