While talking to Sandy, it won’t take you long to figure that she’s not from around here. Born and raised in America, she had a sheltered, but wholesome start to life on a lifestyle farm.
In 2005 she broke out of the bubble and studied for a year at Lincoln University as part of an Animal Science degree at Oregon State University. Life in New Zealand agreed with her, so she made it a permanent move and took up work on a dairy farm in Canterbury alongside her partner, Xavier.
After a few years of dairy farming and other odd jobs, she went back to study towards her veterinary qualification at Massey University, qualifying in 2014. She took up the exciting, mixed-animal position at Vet Services (formerly Chapel Street Veterinary Clinic) in January 2015 and is loving the challenges and variety of sheep & beef farm work.
