Dr. Cherlene Lee
Veterinarian/OwnerDr. 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. Sophia Lay
VeterinarianDr Sophia shares a special bond with animals and has a strong passion to help fur-babies. Sophia grew up in the inner city with all types of cute critters, big and small – including her bunny, cockatiel, mouse and fish. Sophia graduated from the University of Sydney and has worked at different clinics in Sydney with experience in general practice, police dog unit, emergency and house call service.
Sophia has a special interest in dermatology (especially allergies, skin infections and ear infections) and musculoskeletal system (lameness, hip dysplasia and soft tissue injuries). Sophia’s current fur-baby is Charlie, her cheeky Cavoodle boy.
Practice ManagerKazia 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.
Bao Chau Vuong
Head NurseHave 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.
Veterinary NurseGiselle 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.
Veterinary NurseBio coming soon.
Veterinary StudentYuki came to Australia three years ago to pursue her dreams of becoming a vet. She joined the My Vet team as a weekend nurse to gain practical experience and to treat furbabies like the kings and queens they are. When she’s not studying, she enjoys exploring with her adventurous cat Eubie or chilling at home with her floofy cats, Tomoya and Hajime. She also fosters for cat rescues and has a passion for pet photography. You could say her whole world revolves around her cats and you’d be absolutely right.
