Vanessa Hick

Vanessa grew up on a cattle property 650km North-west of Townsville, near a small town called Julia Creek. Her upbringing was filled with endless opportunities to care for animals great and small which sparked her keen interest in becoming a Veterinarian.

Vanessa graduated from James Cook University with a bachelor of Veterinary Science degree and has come to work here at TVC so she can care for a variety of animals both big and small.

When she isn’t looking after your pets at the clinic she is either water skiing on the dam, playing soccer for one of the local teams or gardening with her best dog-friend, Biscuit!
