BVSc | Veterinarian
Rachel grew up in the Hororata area on an extensive sheep and beef farm and has loved animals right from the beginning. She graduated from Massey in 2008 as a veterinarian and worked in Northern Ireland and the Netherlands as a mixed practitioner. She returned to New Zealand in 2013 with her husband Ruurd and began working for Selwyn Rakaia Vets in July 2013. Rachel works part-time for us and fits this in between busy days on their small dairy farm. Rachel has a special interest in dairy herd health and enjoys getting back to her roots with sheep and beef. She has always had a passion for horses and looks forward to getting back to this as a hobby in the near future. Rachel has a little boy called Atze, and in her spare time enjoys working on her garden which is a bit of a wilderness but will one day be ordered and filled with flowers, fruit and vegetables.
