Meet Our Staff

Dr Kate King

Dr Kate is crazy about cats and cat medicine and enjoys coaxing the best out of each and every feline she meets. She finds that gentleness and a knowledge of normal (and not so normal!) cat behaviour go a long way to gaining and keeping a cat's confidence - and solving their health problems.

She gained her membership in cat medicine chapter of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists after much study and three grueling examinations. She aims to make all the cats she cares for as comfortable and healthy as possible, no matter what their age.

Dr Georgia Knudsen

Georgia grew up loving cats. She followed that passion all the way to Sydney University where she completed her Veterinary Science degree in 2004.

In early 2019 Georgia joined Kate as an owner of Canberra Cat Vet.

She has a great interest in cat medicine, cat behaviour and how cats interact with each other and with us. Georgia keeps busy looking after her fur cat babies, son and partner but finds time to ski, read and catch up with friends.

Dr John Yang

John is crazy about cats and has gained his membership in cat medicine chapter of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists after studying at a high level. He moved up from the South Coast and left his favourite hobbies of snorkelling and scuba diving to indulge his love of cats.

John is fluent in Mandarin, enjoys playing badminton, reading and exploring the vastness of the interwebs.

Dr Kay Weller

Kay started work a week before she graduated and has been working in small animal practice ever since. She fulfilled a career goal by passing her Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists membership exams in feline medicine the same year as Dr Kate! She is delighted to have joined the wonderful team at CCV and very much enjoys meeting so many lovely new cat patients.

At home she enjoys reading, knitting and yoga. Of course, her own two cats encourage her in this by sitting on her books, playing with the wool and showing off their own super flexible yoga poses...

Nurse Coordinator Jana

Jana joined Canberra Cat Vet earlier this year as our Vet Nurse Coordinator. She is an animal lover and advocate, who proudly calls her herself a crazy cat lady. Her passion lies in Operating Theatre, working alongside the vets to ensure patients are as comfortable as possible throughout their procedures and into recovery. Jana also has a super soft spot for all of our senior patients.

When Jana isn’t at Canberra Cat Vet she enjoys the great outdoors with her family, or snuggling up on the couch with little dog Paddy and her two cats Snipe and Daisy.

Head Nurse Sally

Sally is our Head Nurse. She rosters us on and orders all the paraphenalia we need to run the clinic from day to day.

Sally has a passion for feline nursing & has become an advocate for low stress cat handling techniques. She loves being able to contribute to our feline patients having an enjoyable and fear free experience when they visit the clinic.

Nurse Cassie

Cassie is a qualified veterinary nurse and also works on reception. Euro (pictured) came into her life after a bout in the wild and made herself completely at home.

In Cassie's spare time she helps at Pegasus riding for the disabled and has her black belt in Taekwondo.

Nurse Zara

Zara became a vet nurse in 2015 to fulfill her dream of helping animals. Zara is a self-confessed crazy cat lady and is interested in anything to do with cats. Her calm, gentle manner endears her to all our patients.

She shares her home with Mya, a thoroughly spoilt Domestic short hair cat, who loves food almost as much as Zara loves her. Outside of work Zara loves to read and cycle.

Receptionist Chloe

Chloe is our Receptionist - her face is the first you'll see at Canberra Cat Vet! She comes to Canberra Cat Vet with 3 years of experience in pet retail in Canberra, where she became knowledgeable in general behaviour, products, health and nutrition. Listen out for her friendly voice over the phone when you make your appointments. Chloe is passionate about cats, big and small. and loves all animals.

At home she has two cats, Beanie and Felix, whom she adores. When not working, she enjoys reading, painting and drawing, reading, catching up on her favourite TV shows and more reading!

Nurse Alissia

Alissia has always had a passion for taking care of animals. When she was a child she found a bird in the pool and nursed it back to health. She felt so proud when he flew out of her hands and back to his home. That feeling ignited a lifelong love of animals. She trained as a veterinary nurse and turned her empathy for animals into a career.

Alissia has two beautiful cats of her own, Sage and Nala. She prides herself on treating every patient that comes through our doors as if they are one of her own.

Nurse Daria

Daria has always had a passion for animals, especially cats. Compassion, curiosity and a desire to know more, have driven her love of all creatures.

Daria has a big soft spot for Siamese and Orientals, having grown up with them during her childhood, but loves snuggling all furry felines!
