Sammi has been a Central Coast local since she was 8.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science in 2003 from Sydney University, Sammi spent her first 2 years in mixed practice in North-east Tasmania and Cowra. After this she spent 5 years in the United Kingdom working in mixed practice in South Wales and then in Small animal practice in Reading, Berkshire.
In 2010, Sammi and her husband Paul moved back to the Central Coast to settle down. They have 3 kids, Monty, Amélie and Benjamin and 2 Labradors, Ruby and Rosie.
Sammi has been working part-time in small animal practice on the Central Coast since 2010 and started working at Terrigal Vet Hospital as a locum in January 2017. She has come on board in a permanent part-time capacity on Fridays as of January 2019.
She loves the Central Coast and walking her dogs on the beach, sailing on a yacht in the twilight races on Brisbane water and playing soccer with the Avoca Sharks.
