Holly completed her Certificate IV in Veterinary nursing in 2012 and is currently studying her Diploma in Veterinary Nursing. Holly has recently come on board with PETstock VET in Altona as their new Practice Manager. Holly has a passion for reptiles and birds and has many weird yet wonderful animals herself at home that keep her busy. In her spare time she loves to foster injured and orphaned wildlife with Wildlife Victoria and volunteer at Werribee Open Range Zoo. She is always happy to have a chat and to help with any questions you may have.


Dr Kate is our senior vet and a partner of the practice. Prior to starting with PETstock VET, Kate worked for 15 years as a partner of Altona Veterinary Clinic and prior to this she worked and travelled overseas. Kate is a keen surgeon and has completed a post graduate course in surgery. She has an interest in all aspects of small animal surgery especially stifle (knee) surgery. Kate has 2 sons - Nick who has just started high school (yikes!!) and Will who is in grade 3 and who almost always has a smile on his face. Thankfully she loves sport of all kinds as this has become her life bringing up 2 boys! Kate plays netball and tennis regularly and runs to keep fit. She also loves skiing, music and the beach. Kate has a boxer called “Sachi” who is now 9 but still keeps her company on her runs-even if she is going a little grey and wants to do more sniffing and less running these days (Sachi, not Kate)!!
