  • Karen Leckie

    Karen is our receptionist. She is the person who greets you with a smile and ensures you are seen on time and give you a cuppa if you need it. Karen is always generous with the doggy treats - so generous our canine patients will often come and sit next to her giving her the big eye/sad face treatment; which of course she can't resist.

  • Janine Bolton

    Janine juggles our books in between juggling her three children – you’ll often find her popping in and out of the office with a carseat or child in her arms! Janine’s job is to keep the accounts running smoothly and tying each day’s work up nice and tidily – and solving any problems!....Something like a cross between a Huntaway, a St Bernard and a lion with a headache!

    Janine moved from Rotorua to Dunedin in 2002 with her partner and has been working with computers and numbers ever since, after an eclectic early working life including Japanese-speaking tour guiding, teaching, hotel management and selling mobile phones. She looks forward to adding a cat and a dog to the family once the children are old enough to help look after them
