Dr Adriana Rosslee

I first got my degree in microbiology and then went on to further study veterinary science at Onderstepoort in South Africa, where I also met my husband. We both worked for a few years in SA and Hong Kong and then decided to move to NZ with our now 3 year old daughter. At the moment we only have a pet snail, called Barbie.
In our free time we love exploring the beautiful outdoors, joining in community events and of course, enjoying a barbeque.

Team Leader & Veterinary Nurse

Catherine completed her certificate in Veterinary Nursing in 1998 and has worked in a number of clinics in both Marlborough and Christchurch since then. She has worked for Pet Doctors for 14 years with the last 4 of these years being at Templeton where she enjoys working with the great team and all the lovely clients and their fur babies.

Catherine has two children, two older (and very spoilt) cats and a busy little dog call Inky.

Veterinary Nurse

I have been nursing for many years with the completion of the National Certificate in Veterinary Nursing in 1998.
I have a keen interest in anaesthetics and surgical nursing.
Employed part-time so I can fulfil my passion working with animals and also spend time with my 2 young boys, husband, and sassy cat Marley.

Christa Eade
Veterinary Nurse

Christa came to us as a student nurse in 2019 as she completed her Diploma. She is now fully qualified!
She is a mum of a 7 year old daughter, 4 cats and a labrador.
When shes not working she enjoys being outside working around her daughters ponies.

Client Relations

I have enjoyed nursing in the Veterinary clinic for 31 years!
I always enjoy seeing clients coming in with their new puppy or kitten and becoming a much loved family member.
I have five Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, which I show.
Just acquired two new kittens which I found at home wild and have had fun taming them.
Also enjoy walking, growing cacti, horse riding and reading when time allows.
