After finishing her veterinary degree, Rosemary spent two years getting stuck into mixed practice in the sunny Bay of Plenty, in a very enjoyable start to a veterinary career. Looking for a new challenge, she joined the Animal Emergency Centre in 2009 after moving to Auckland, and has been in emergency practice ever since.
Rosemary and partner Fraser live in Pukekohe and have 2 daughters. As well as being involved in the management of the veterinary clinic, they own and run a boutique racehorse farm, Cambria Park. There is not much in the way of spare time, but they enjoy travelling, particularly anywhere adventurous when they have the chance. The furry family members are a pack of waifs of strays from various rescue backgrounds including “farm” dog Chili, and cats Rascal, Gollum, Nahla and Tattoo.
