Dr. Winnie Cheung
Dr. Winnie Cheung originates from Hong Kong. She studied a veterinary degree at Murdoch University in Perth. Winnie treasures the opportunities to care for animals, whether they are two-legged, four-legged, feathery and scaly and she has a great supportive team to help her. The wombat reminded her passion of wildlife and protecting the environment, thanks to Steve Irwin. Although she enjoys many aspects of veterinary science, she has developed interests in exotic animals, especially birds. Back in Hong Kong, she has had two cockatiels and five turtles since childhood. She enjoys hiking and exploring Australia.
Dr. Jerin Joy
I was born in India and brought up in Adelaide where I recently graduated from the University of Adelaide in 2019. During my studies, I worked in the hospitality industry where I particularly enjoyed getting to know new people and listening to their stories.
I’ve always had a passion for animal’s and the relationship people have with them and enjoy all aspects of Veterinary medicine with special interest in clinical pathology and small animal surgery. I am honoured to be the latest addition to Whyalla Veterinary Clinic.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, exploring the outdoors, trying out new places to eat and drink and playing soccer.
