  • Meredith Churchill
    Practice Manager

    Meredith commenced working as the AMC Practice Manager in February 2015, following a career of 28 years of working in hospitality. With an extensive background in management, her skills and experience lends itself well to the variety of work the position requires. 

    When not at work Meredith endeavours to be a domestic goddess and enjoys spending time with friends and family which includes their beautiful German Shepherd Zena and playful cat sisters Callie and Willow. Meredith is also a member of a local Lions Club which provides assistance to the community. 

    For relaxation Meredith finds nothing beats sitting back with a good book, glass of wine with cheese or a selection of dark chocolates. Heaven...

  • Jenny Jones
    Veterinary Nurse

    After travelling around Australia for twenty years, my husband and I finally settled in Tasmania where we bought a small property and keep a menagerie (2 dogs, 1 cat, 11 alpaca's, 1 goat and chickens). I did my training in NSW a very long time ago and have worked at the Animal Medical Centre for seven and a half years in various rolls- mostly in surgery. I find the challenge of surgery enjoyable and ongoing study has taught me an enormous amount over the years.
