Verity is originally from the UK, and emigrated with her family to NZ as a teenager. She joined the Vets North team in July 2018. Graduating as a veterinary nurse in 2009 she gained a few years’ experience at a small animal practice before her and her partner Dave did the big OE over to London, back packing in Southeast Asia for 3 months along the way. She worked in a busy first opinion practice in North West London for a number of years and after plenty more travelling the call for home was too strong. She and Dave moved back to NZ, settled down and had two daughters. They live in Kaukapakapa with their dog Finn and cat Obi-Wan.
