Dr. Rebecca Flegg

Veterinarian

Hi! My name’s Dr Bec and I joined the team at Greenfields Vet Hospital in 2016 . I was a mixed animal vet for three years or so until I moved to Greenfields. I’ll admit it’s a little cliche, but I’ve always wanted to be a vet ever since I was a little kid, and I loved spending time on my family’s dairy farm in Yarloop, WA. Growing up we’ve always had pets, whether it be chickens, cats or our current trio of miniature goats. I don’t really consider them pets but more part of the family.

Outside of work, I keep myself busy playing netball in the Peel Netball League and the odd game of basketball. Sport is a huge part of my life and I find it a great way to wind down after a long day. I love travelling (who doesn’t?) and would love to travel all over Europe some time soon. I’ve just bought my first house and have adopted a rescue kitten named Jenkins. Those who know me well also know I have a sweet tooth and love baking cupcakes and biscuits on my days off.

The Nursing Team

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.

In 2001 Cathy bought an around the world ticket, grabbed her backpack and off she went. Travel is still of interest but just shorter trips these days. Tennis and two woofies keep her pretty active. To keep her grey matter ticking along, Cathy has gone back to university this year, studying a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Health.

Puppies are her most favourite thing in the world. Cathy runs the puppy preschool here at Greenfields Vet Hospital. Got a new puppy? She’d love to hear from you.

Cindy Waters

Veterinary Nurse and Practice Manager

Cindy graduated as a veterinary nurse in 1996. Before coming part of the furniture here at Greenfields, she has worked in an emergency centre and also clinics in Perth and down south in Busselton.

Cindy has the 4 legged variety of children: 2 cats, 1 dog and 1 horse.

As well as being a vet nurse Cindy is a canine physical therapist and a professional dog trainer with a special interest in behaviour.

Hi, my name is Laura and I’m a Veterinary nurse at the Greenfields Vet hospital.  I have been in the animal industry since 2014 and have always loved animals.

I have my own who I’ve grown up with she’s called Ella. I also adore kelpies which I have developed a super soft spot for, so be prepared for Lots of cuddles!

Lisa Watson

Veterinary Nurse

Lisa completed her vet nursing and worked for 2 years at various clinics. At that point, she got restless and unsettled and decided to travel around Australia for two and a half years. It was a fantastic experience. Whilst traveling Lisa realised how much she missed having animals in her life. It was this realisation that brought her back to nursing.

Lisa has a number of  fur babies at home:  5x cats 1x dog and a rainbow lorikeet. Each one has a little quirky character that always brings a smile to her face. She also has a son who keeps her very busy and has the same passion for animals and life as she does.

She has been with us since April 2009.

“As exhausting & heartbreaking that veterinary nursing can be the good times and experiences out weigh the bad.”

Marisa Clifford

Veterinary Nurse

Marisa moved from Scotland 10 years prior to joining the Greenfields Vet Hospital team in 2015.

She believes that becoming a Vet Nurse was the best decision she has made. “I’ve always thought that animals light up my life, so why not have a career filled with animals!”

Marisa has 3 cats and a dog that she madly adores.

Marisa hopes to travel the world to see as many weird and wonderful animals as possible.
