Alex Hartwell
Practice Manager

Alex started veterinary nursing in 1995 in Geelong and at the completion of her certificate in nursing became Head Veterinary Nurse.

After several years in the profession she chose to branch out and start her own business in animal grooming.  Alex decided to move to Cairns in 2013


After the move to Cairns and a well earned break, Alex chose to follow her passion and resume veterinary nursing at a clinic in Cairns where she stayed for several years before making the move to us in July 2020.

Alex has become a valued part of our team and has progressed from nursing to Practice Manager.  You will see Alex greeting our friendly, furry friends and their dedicated owners and if you don't happen to see her out the front she will be assisting in clinical and surgical nursing or working behind the scenes.

Alex has a lorikeet named 'Naughty Norman' (image above), no need to guess why he is named this and a pint sized dog name 'Dolce'.
