After growing up on the family dairy and beef farm in Central Victoria, Rob graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2004. He started his vet career in Kyabram and continued to develop his skills in dairy and companion animal practice in multiple practices throughout the UK and Australia.
Rob first joined the Gippsland Vet Hospital team in 2011 to help cover a maternity leave position. He has since returned several times in between working and traveling around Australia and overseas.
He enjoys all aspects of mixed animal practice but is most interested in preventative health and herd management programs to assist out dairy and beef farmers to reduce disease, improve animal welfare and ultimately improve productivity and profitability.
When he’s not hanging around on dairy farms, Rob likes to get outdoors and explore the region with his young family by foot, bike, 4×4 or canoe.
