Dr Clara cares deeply about all the patients who come in to see her and strives to make her treatment decisions with the welfare of her patients as the priority. She empathises with owners bringing in a sick member of their family and tries to help them understand their pet’s condition and work through the treatment options available.
What she enjoys about her job is getting to know each individual pet and their family. The condition of her patients is foremost on her mind and she’s always interested to follow-up  with owners on their pet’s condition at home beyond their brief visit to the clinic.
Away from work her attention is taken up with looking after a now geriatric population of pets at home and trying to raise her toddler the best that she can. She stays active through swimming, jogging or yoga and indulges in watching police procedural dramas or immersing in a novel after her kid has gone to bed.
