That was a lot of hard work!
This should have been posted many months back, but we were celebrating our Open Day, so here now is a link to a short article that Helen wrote after her stint helping with an AMRRIC (Animal Management in Remote and Rural Indigenous Communities) visit to Yuendumu.
I grew up on a farm, went to school in Dubbo, then studied Veterinary Science in Sydney, graduating in 1990. I started my vet career in mixed practice in Armidale, NSW, and eventually married one of my clients. After a stint in the UK, I worked in Taree for a couple of years before moving to Canberra in 1998.
These days I mainly work with small animals but have recently achieved my dream of returning to life among the cows on a small acreage.
Our pets include Jack the Border Collie, and two children. I have a fascination with chimps and chimp behaviour. It’d be good to meet one someday. My other interests are indoor cricket (I’m keen but hopeless), gardening, travel, reading, photography, golf and bushwalking.
