After graduating from Massey University in 2008, Magdeline worked in busy small animal practices in Singapore. She returned to Massey University Veterinary Teaching Hospital as the Pfizer Small Animal Surgical Intern in 2011, and later joined the team at Cahill’s Animal Hospital in Palmerston North at the end of 2012.
Magdeline was admitted as a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (Small Animal Surgery) in 2013, and completed her Master’s degree in Veterinary Medicine (Companion Animal Surgery) the following year.
While her passion lies in surgery, she also enjoys all other aspects of small animal practice and has a vested interest in optimising the well-being of her patients. When she is not at work, you can find her baking plenty of treats for the Cahill team or lazing in the sun with her cat Einstein.
How has your Massey University education contributed to your success?
Massey University has opened up a range of career, research and knowledge advancement/refinement opportunities and without MU, there’s no way I will be where I am today
What do your shoes say about you?
My shoes would say that my feet stink from long days at the clinic, and that they are thankful for comfy socks!
