Meet the Team at Clermont Veterinary Surgery





Amanda Shannon

Position: Practice Manager

Qualifications: Certificate 4 in Vet Nursing

Amanda has not only been a greatly valued and appreciated member of the Clermont Vet Surgery team since 1999, but she also has the unique ability to effectively communicate with Alan without having to say a word at all!  Amanda’s local knowledge, together with her vet nurse and rural experience make her an integral asset to the clinic and its clients and she plays a vital role as practice manager. She enjoys all aspects of nursing but find particularly rewarding the reviving of puppies after a caesarean and the satisfaction of a tidy clip or groom job (as much as dog hair makes her sneeze!)  Just in case she doesn’t get enough experience at the vet surgery, Amanda, her husband and two gorgeous kids have a plethora of horses, dogs, cats, chooks, birds and the odd poddy calf or goat!


Nikki Robertson

Position: Veterinary Nurse

Qualifications: Training towards Certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing

Nikki joined us in July 2013 with a depth of experience in stud cattle, show preparation and bull breeding. She works full time and keeps the clinic running very smoothly, while still finding time for her veterinary nurse studies. Nikki coordinates our monthly "runs" to Middlemount and Alpha which is no easy feat! When not at work, she can found pursuing her other passions which include show and sale preparation of cattle (brahman of course!), campdrafting, fitness, cooking, reading and sketching. Nikki has her own horses, cattle and dogs which keep her busy. She can often be seen walking around the lagoon with the gorgeous "Emi" (a neo mastiff X). 


Meg Grogan

Position: ​Veterinary Nurse

Qualifications: Training towards Certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing

Meg joined us in July 2014 while she was still at school and was a valuable asset helping us out on Saturday mornings and school holidays. When she graduated Capella High school end of 2016 we offered her a full time position and we were delighted when she accepted! Meg is now studying her Certificate IV in veterinary nursing. She travels daily back and forward from Capella where she  has chickens and two miniature horses: “Charlie” a stallion and “Grace” a mare. Meg can often be found on a weekend at community markets in the district where she sells beautiful wooden roses with her family. 


Tylah Herrigan

Position: ​Veterinary Nurse

Qualifications: Training towards Certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing

Tylah made the big move to Clermont from Mackay as a 16 year old in 2015 to join the Clermont Veterinary Surgery team. She has always wanted to be a vet nurse, and she used to go along as a primary school girl with her Aunty Skye who is a qualified vet nurse in Mackay. Tylah is currently studying her Certificate IV in veterinary nursing. Although Tylah is more than capable with all species, her area of speciality is organising the small animals and providing plenty of cuddles to the hospitalised dogs and cats. When not at work, Tylah enjoys hanging out with friends, waterskiing, going to rodeos and taking her gorgeous bull arab "Gracie" for long walks.


Kayla Fielder

Position: ​Veterinary Nurse

Qualifications: Training towards Certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing

Kayla joined the Clermont Veterinary team in April 2016. Growing up on a cattle property "Oakatokes" north east of Aramac, her passion for working with animals started at a very early age. Kayla enjoys working with all animals but equine nursing is where her true talent and love lies. Kayla is the dedicated equine nurse and Dr Caroline's offsider and keeps the stables running smoothly and efficiently. When Kayla isn't at the clinic she's usually at home trying to complete her veterinary nursing studies as soon as possible. Kayla enjoys competing in campdrafting on her two favourite mares "Oaky" and "O'Mara", skiing and running with her super cute mini foxie "Ellie" in her spare time.


Jessica White

Position: ​Veterinary Nurse

Qualifications: Certificate 2 in Animal Studies. Training towards Certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing

Jess is our newest recruit joining us in January 2017 and hails from "Athelstane" station outside Winton. She has always been keen to work in the veterinary industry and completed a traineeship at a vet clinic while she was at boarding school in Townsville. Jess's role is predominantly as a "bush nurse" and she can often be found swinging off a slide gate and assisting the vet while out on cattle properties. When not nursing, Jess loves to socialise with friends and hang out with her brothers.     



Bailey Richardson

Position: ​Part-time Veterinary Nurse

Qualifications: Still at school

Bailey is a local girl currently in high school at Clermont State High and helps us out on weekends and school holidays. She is a keen horserider and enjoys competing at pony club and bush sports.
