Mary is originally from Kentucky, USA but studied in England, obtaining a BVetMed from The Royal Veterinary College in London in 2016. Following graduation, she moved to Australia and spent two years working in general practice before commencing a rotating internship in surgery and internal medicine at Southpaws Specialty Hospital. Mary has a particular interest in Internal Medicine, Diagnostic Imaging, and Oncology. During her spare time, she plays volleyball, enjoys hiking, and spending time with her husband Jay, dog Penny the whippet, and 3 cats Max, Walt, and Jake.


Dr Steve is a full time locum and will often be found covering for the regular staff at Patterson Rivers Vets while they’re on holidays.

Steve originally hails from Yorkshire in the UK and qualified at Liverpool in 1993. He emigrated to Australia over 10 years ago with his wife and 2 children.

He prides himself on his approachability and client communication skills and has an interest in wound management.

Steve has owned his own practice, but enjoys the cut and thrust of being a locum and the ability to choose who he works with. If you have met Dr Steve, you will know that he is certainly not one to take life too seriously!
