Dr Rodney Anderson
I grew up on a beef cattle property in Central Queensland, and moved to Tasmania after graduating from University of Queensland in 1992. After 3 years of mainly dairy cattle work and acclimatisation to weather extremes, I went overseas to do locum work in the UK, and backpack around the globe for 2 years. I returned and got as far as Nambucca Heads, which was almost 20 years ago! I enjoy small animal surgery, and getting outside to do cattle work. My home and family life takes up most of my spare time, but playing tennis, getting out in the boat and working on the farm is great fun.
Dr Jenny Keay
Graduating with Honours from the University of Queensland in 2006, I lunged straight into an equine intern position at Oakey Veterinary Hospital, an equine veterinary specialist centre. The hospital was a mixed practice that largely saw equine medicine and surgery. It was also a university teaching school and a great place to start my career, but missing the coastal environment I decided to move on after a few years.
After moving southwards to the mid north coast in 2008 and starting a family, I am now a veterinarian at the Nambucca Heads practice. I have a keen interest in my equine friends and small animal medicine and surgery. When not at work you will find me out playing with my Arabian horses or spending time with my husband and two children which usually involves enjoying the pristine beaches we are lucky to have here.
Dr Jocelyn Todd
I grew up in Far North Queensland, with a large and varied menagerie of animals. I finished high school with no future plans so spent three years working on Beef/Wheat/Cotton farms in my early adult life. I tired of driving tractors and went to study Vet Science at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, graduating in 2013. Since then I have mainly worked in Dorrigo, as well as locum jobs in Collie, WA, Yass, Armidale and Grafton, NSW, Traralgon VIC and Naracoorte SA. I was very excited to have been able to move home to start this job in September 2016.

I have recently completed my certificate 4 in veterinary nursing, I grew up on a small farm on the mid north coast with lots of different animals. I have great love and passion for horses and love to show jump in my spare time. I also enjoy spending time with my 3 kids, Noah, Billy and Isla and my partner John on our small hobby farm. We have 2 horses Joey and Sunny, a miniature horse Bear, Henry the dog, George the cat, chooks, and our loving and hilarious mini pig Kevin Bacon.
