Dr Regan joined the team in February 2018, after starting her vet career in Tatura, Victoria. Born and bred North Queensland, she was pretty excited to return closer to home after spending a few winters down south. Coming from a mixed dairy practice, Regan enjoys cattle and horse work, with an interest in reproduction and bull fertility. When she is not at work, Regan is often found trying to convince her dog, Ding, to stop digging up her garden!
Alex joined the team in January 2021 after graduating from the University of Queensland. Born and bred in Scotland, he travelled to Queensland to complete his Bachelor of Veterinary Science and was keen to stay and see what the North had to offer.
