Amy first studied film and journalism before realising that veterinary nursing was her vocation. Amy has worked in many small animal clinics, a large animal hospital and has also worked as a vet nurse in the United Kingdom. Amy loves all aspects of veterinary nursing in particular inpatient care, senior health, clinical pathology and emergency nursing. However, it is the bond between patient and nurse that Amy values most.
Amy helped Dr Will in establishing JSVet back in 2011 and with her nursing background and experience, was promoted to Practice Manager in 2017. Amy and Will work closely together as the management team to keep JSVet constantly evolving and to ensure this clinic stands out from the rest.
At home, Amy spends time with "Elvis Presley", a 5 year old rescue Burmese cat, who does believe he is The King. Each time Amy brings him to the clinic, he leaves with one less tooth. Amy enjoys frequenting the dog parks with the dogs she minds through pet sitting, seeing live music and finding a sunny beer garden; dog friendly of course!

Kelsie is originally from Perth and moved to Melbourne with her partner in 2016.
Kelsie is an avid dog lover and has over 10 years experience in dog grooming and pet styling. As a trip to the vet or groomer can be stressful to our pooch friends, Kelsie tries to make this experience as positive as possible. Kelsie allows her grooming patients under supervision to roam in a closed off space instead of a cage, uses pheromones such as Adaptil in her grooming space aswell as using calming techniques when handling. Kelsie is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the best cut, style or treatment for your dog and would prefer for your dog to be happy to return to us than to get the perfect hair cut.
Kelsie has a menagerie of pets at home including dogs Pumpkin and JD and cats Luka and Java. Pumpkin and JD usually offer moral support by accompanying Kelsie to work and letting her give them funky hair styles or by making them wear hilarious dog outfits.
When not with dogs, Kelsie enjoys playing video games.
