Meet Our Team
Dr David Stebbing
Lead Vet
  • MVB (Hons)

Dr David moved to Australia from his home in Ireland in 2016. He has spent this time working with a range of species including dogs, cats, birds, exotics and our beautiful Australian wildlife in both Small Animal Practice and Emergency and Critical Care Centres! He is known for his gentle nature, affiliation with animals and his fantastic Irish humour. Dr David has been an amazing asset to our team since joining us in 2019 and holds a keen interest in all areas of Veterinary Medicine, but particularly surgical cases, complex medical cases and ultrasonography.

Outside of work, David loves to enjoy the Australian outdoors, from surfing to camping and exploring. He is usually out in the waves at sunrise before swapping the surfboard for his scrubs and stethoscope!

Dr Brianna Caitens
Vet
  • BVSc (Hons)

Dr Brianna joined our wonderful Vet team at the beginning of 2020. After qualifying in Veterinary Science at UQ Gatton, Bri moved down to Victoria where she worked as a mixed practice Veterinarian for 2 years. She particularly enjoyed the variety and doing some dairy cattle work, but decided It was time to move back home to sunny QLD to focus on her passion for small animal medicine and surgery! Since settling into Noosa with us, Dr Bri has had a great interest in all cases from surgical, imaging and complex medical cases. She really enjoys being able to work through cases together with owners.

Bri loves getting outdoors in her spare time, exploring the beautiful Sunshine Coast’s national parks, camping, hiking and kayaking. She is a self-professed “crazy cat lady”, so also loves staying home to hang out with her three rescue cats and cooking up a storm!

Brooke joined our team in the beginning of August 2019 and has brought with her some fresh eyes for the clinic and a vast amount of experience in clinic management and Veterinary Nursing. Brooke has been a Head Nurse and Practice Manager in one of our other Coast clinics in Buderim for the past 10 years, and is now leading both of our clinics and teams.

Brooke has a large vested interest in patient, client and staff care and has worked in both Small Animal Practice and Emergency and Critical Care Centres. We can't wait to see what positive and exciting times we have ahead of us as a team and what we can grow to offer you further as a clinic. Please say hello to Brooke if you see her in clinic, she will be working a variety of roles from reception to surgery nursing and can't wait to get to know our lovely clients and their beloved pets!

Brian
Vet Assistant

Brian is arguably one of our most loved staff members! He joined our team in 2019, alongside his owners Nurse Brooke and Dr David, and has won the hearts of all staff and many of our clients. Brian has helped us to save many dogs in his time with us, as he is our resident blood donor! Brian is the epitome of a ‘good boy’ and is rewarded for his stellar Veterinary efforts each day with many pats, treats and his all time favourite, cuddles!

In his spare time away from his full-time work, Brian loves to run and to laze out on the beach. He enjoys snoozing, eating, a bit of yoga (mostly downward dog) and lots of cuddles. Brian holds Nurse Olivia very near and dear to his heart and particularly enjoys the working days where he gets to see her.

Olivia lives on the rural end of the Sunshine Coast and has rescued a couple of dogs to come and live out their days on her beautiful property.
