Deena graduated from Murdoch University, Perth, in 2017. After graduation Deena decided to move back to her home town of Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. Deena has spent many years working within the veterinary industry, originally as a Veterinary Nurse working mainly in emergency hospitals. She has carried this interest through to her career as a Veterinary Surgeon and has special interests in emergency and critical care, feline medicine and diagnostic imaging.
Deena feels passionately about the psychological experience of her patients and plans on completing further education this year to learn all of the latest techniques which can be utilised to minimise fear and stress during visits to the clinic.
At home Deena enjoys the company of her two dogs Thorin, Ellie and Zara, her domestic short haired cat. She also enjoys playing field hockey and plans to learn how to paddle board in the near future!
