Frances graduated from the University of Sydney with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in December 2020. She worked for 6 years in invasive species management and the devastating impact on Australian biodiversity. Wanting to dive deeper into humane methods for controlling invasive animals and contribute more broadly to the field of animal welfare, Frances was drawn to the Australian Public Service but was unsure about pursuing a non-clinical veterinary career. Frances says: “The VET pathway changed my life as it helped me to bridge the gap between my veterinary clinical training and applying these skills to a public service career.”
