Hammond Park Vet is very proud to present – our animal-loving staff.
I grew up in Singapore and my family moved over to Perth when I was in high school. In 2010 I graduated from Murdoch uni and went to work in Melbourne where I became addicted to the adrenaline rush of emergency medicine.
Eventually I got sick of the horrible weather and traffic so I moved back to Perth where I continued working in an emergency and GP practice and ended up getting my memberships in ECC.
Now with two young sons and two fur kids keeping me on my toes I don’t need any more thrills in my life so I’ve decided to switch pace and enjoy the GP life.
Donna graduated from Murdoch University in 2015 and started her veterinary career in the UK working as a small animal veterinarian in Essex. She then moved to the big city to carry on her work.
After enjoying the London life and plenty of travel she returned to Perth at the end of 2018. Donna has always had a passion for animals and their welfare and strives to provide excellent care to all her patients.
In her spare time, Donna enjoys keeping active and aerial hoop skills and loves planning her next getaway.
My name is Kylie, I am a 2009 Murdoch Vet school graduate. I have three beautiful children and a very supportive partner.
I love working with exotic pets and have a special interest in pain management, animal welfare and pocket pet medicine and surgery.
I have worked as a cadet with The Department of Agriculture, several large small animal clinics in Perth and locumed for Perth Veterinary Specialists over the past 12 months.
I have many pets at home, including 5 dogs, two foster failure cats, an axolotl and a pink and grey galah, Milo, who will go out of his way to bite me!
I have recently become an accredited Fear Free consultant in Western Australian and strive to make every clinic visit as stress less and fear free as possible.
I have a deep understanding of the importance of human – animal companionship and aim to provide gold standard tailored care, empathy and outstanding surgical/medical treatment/advice to all of my clients.

Dr Ralene was inspired to be a Veterinarian at 8 years old when she noticed the special bond between owners and pets, and wanted to help people care for their precious pets from the start to the end. Since then, she has worked hard for years to become a Veterinarian. Ralene is from Singapore and studied at Murdoch University. Confident in all aspects of Veterinary medicine and routine soft tissue surgery, she will take extra good care of your fur-babies. She has been teaching bird/ wildlife handling at Murdoch Uni part-time.
Ralene is always hungry for knowledge and delicious food.
Big felines, especially ginger cats, make her melt faster than ice cream on hot summer days. She owns an insta-worthy handsome and naughty ginger cat that consistently keeps her on her toes and also a loving black cat which she always cuddles on her down days.
In her free time, she enjoys playing competitive ultimate frisbee aiming to go for regionals/nationals. On the days when there is no training, she loves tending to her plants and enjoys a good book with coffee
