Dr Seymour became a vet because she thought it would be interesting and provide more excitement and challenges than her first degree in Audiology/Speech Pathology. Her veterinary employment began in a small practice in Ipswich followed by a year-long surgical internship with Bruce Smith. She then worked in a general practice on the Gold Coast for 4 years.
"I love all aspects of veterinary medicine and I can't seem to get away from it as my husband Rich is also a vet. I love it immensely and enjoy working at AES because of the great team and all the patients that need our help."
In her spare time Dana enjoys time at the gym doing crossfit and when home she relaxes by reading novels. Her pets include "Tonka" (a Staffy x Kelpie), "Poppy" (a Border Collie x who was adopted after a drug study from the University of Queensland while Dana was still in vet school). Then there's "Jamu" (a Golden Retriever x Maremma who is extremely storm phobic and has destroyed walls, windows, curtains and carpet on more occasions than Dana cares to remember). "Aussie" (a Ragdoll), "Ninja" (a DSH adopted as a stray while working in general practice), and "Mouse" (a DMH adopted from the RSPCA after being rescued from a storm water drain).
