Dr. Cherlene Lee

Dr. Cherlene Lee

Veterinarian/Owner

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. Jess graduated from the University of Sydney and for as long as she can remember, she has always wanted to become a vet. She was committed to this dream and excelled in her academic achievements, receiving the Premier’s Award for All-Round Excellence. During her studies, she has worked in veterinary clinics and childcare centres, and has even juggled both animals and children at the same time with a mobile petting farm job. She understands just how important the human-animal bond is for people of all ages. She currently has a special interest in surgery.

Dr. Jess developed a love for adventure and strong leadership skills as a member of the Australian Army Cadets and continues to stay involved by volunteering at her high school unit and mentoring cadets at their annual field exercises. She is also a very active person, loves hiking and trying new sports, and can often be found playing volleyball and badminton multiple times a week.

Veterinarian

Dr Adrian has always been fascinated with animals since a young age, and definitely has watched his fair share of David Attenborough documentaries. After completing high school with a Principal’s Letter of Recommendation, he pursued his interest in animals and science and completed a Bachelor of Veterinary Biology / Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Sydney. As a strong advocate for ensuring all animals are able to receive the veterinary attention they deserve, he was an active participant in multiple charity drives throughout his studies and plans to continue doing so throughout his career.

He has a particular interest in internal medicine and appreciates the problem solving required in particularly complex cases. He strives to always apply the most current knowledge to ensure all his patients receive the best standard of care.

Dr. Jess Choong

Dr. Jess Choong

Veterinarian

After completing a combined Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering/Bachelor of Medical Science with First Class Honors in 2013, Dr. Jess realised her true passion was to be a vet. She applied for a vet nurse internship with MyVet Animal Hospital and worked as a nurse from 2014-2017 whilst undertaking her veterinary studies. She graduated with a distinction average from the University of Sydney with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the end of 2019, receiving an award for academic excellence in her second year.

After graduating, Dr. Jess had an interest in mixed practice and worked in Dubbo from 2020-2021, working with dogs, cats, horses, and cows. During her time in Dubbo, she developed an interest in surgery but also was involved with many complicated medical cases. She has continued to learn even after finishing uni; most recently, she attended a conference on managing behaviour in pets and has been trying to help clients better understand certain behavioural aspects of their furbabies.

After working in an extremely busy rural practice, Jess has returned to Sydney and My Vet Animal Hospital, where she wants to really focus on tailored high-quality veterinary care, helping to educate clients as much as possible and pursuing further knowledge and training.

In her spare time, Jess loves to go to the gym, take dancing classes and spend as much time as possible cuddling her Persian furbabies, Laith and Luna.

She is currently studying a Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing at TAFE and is enjoying applying all her skills and knowledge here as a vet nurse. While she doesn’t have any pets of her own here, she has unwittingly developed a big soft spot for her flatmate’s cats and discovered a love for cats.
