Veterinarians

Dr. Claire Irwin

Veterinarian

Hi, I’m Dr Claire. I have worked as a small animal vet since graduating from the University of Liverpool in 2002. Having lived all my life in Northern Ireland, I decided to follow my dream of living in Australia and migrated with my husband and 2 daughters in July 2018, taking up the position of Lead Vet here at Greenfields Vet Hospital.

Whilst passionate about all animals, dogs have always been close to my heart and we ran our own dog Boarding Kennels business for 6 years. Although I have no pets at the minute, this is sure to change  working at Greenfields as everyone has a soft spot for waifs and strays!

Outside of work I was a keen hockey player but I’m now looking forward to supporting my daughters from the sidelines. I love the outdoors and can’t wait to explore all that WA has to offer.

Dr. Markus Nay

Veterinarian

Dr Markus was born and raised in Switzerland where he obtained his Veterinary degree and worked in farm animal practice before moving with his family to Australia in 1991.

After undertaking further qualification through Murdoch University in 1996 Dr Markus worked in mixed practice in the Southwest of WA for 3 years before moving to England and working in Emergency Practice for 13 years.

Now Dr Markus has settled back in WA and brings his wealth of experience with him to care for the pets at Greenfields Vet Hospital.

In 2012 she was given a great opportunity to work in a large veterinary hospital in Singapore. During the 8 years she was in Singapore she had the chance to work with some interesting animals such as the local macaques, chinchillas, hamsters and hedgehogs.
She also had the chance to work with the specialist Japanese cardiology team. As they flew over a few times a year to perform mitral valve repair (open heart surgery) on Singapore cardiac patients.
Naomi loves to travel and during her time in Singapore she travelled to many places a few being; Greece, Spain, Italy, Vietnam, Japan and the UK.

Cathy Oates

Veterinary Nurse

Cathy comes from a corporate background. She completed a Bachelor of Business Degree twenty odd years ago.  Her and her husband chose to live a bit more and work a bit less as they approached 40 which gave her time to think about what she really wanted to be when she grew up.

She’s been vet nursing part-time ever since. More than ten years on, Cathy still loves her job. Tennis and walking her two children, a Westie named Charly, and Bruce a Mini Schnauzer, keep her pretty busy, but she wouldn’t want it any other way.”

Rachel Youlden

Animal Attendant

Rachel is currently studying towards becoming a veterinarian at Murdoch Uni. She has known that a vet is what she has wanted to be since she was in kindergarten.
Rachel also works as a lifeguard for the City of Mandurah, and in her spare time she loves watching movies, cuddling with her dog and riding horses. Although she doesn’t live on a property (yet), she has spent the last few years leasing a horse and competing in various showjumping and crosscountry events, and loves casual rides on the beach.

Her favourite memory is that of when she was surprised on her 14th birthday with a little Maltese X puppy called Chloe from the pound. Ever since, she has loved teaching Chloe tricks and taking her for long walks out in the bush with friends. Poor Chloe has to put up with a lot of vet practice on her!

Zoe Willis

After being in retail for many years Zoe decided to finally pursue a career with animals. She is currently studying Vet nursing while working with us. She loves travelling and has been to Europe and South Africa and is planning on exploring more!
