Catherine ClappertonCatherine Clapperton Dipl. in Veterinary Nursing
Clinic Manager

Growing up on a sheep & beef farm in Northland was a great start to my career in the veterinary industry, I have worked with all species here in NZ and the U.K over the last 20 years which has provided me with a good insight into the ever-changing needs of the veterinary practice and our clients' needs. My huge passion outside of work is my horse and hunting with the local Hunt Clubs.

I originally started in 1995 as a Receptionist for what was Manawatu Vet Services. My role has varied over the years but has always involved some form of Customer Service. My current role involves answering incoming calls, managing the Production Animal Diary, and being Personal Assistant to our Sheep and Beef Consulting Vet Trevor Cook. I enjoy the variety that working at a large busy Vet Clinic brings and the company of the great team I work with.
