Solange considers herself the lay person among incredible people. She didn't aspire to work with pets or animals from a young age and she wasn't any good at science at school. Her career commenced in journalism (though it pains her to admit that) with an eclectic resume to follow.
She started with Animal Emergency Service in 2009 as a receptionist in the Carrara practice. "I had no clue about the veterinary industry and especially not emergency medicine. My area of expertise was customer service so I concentrated on that while I hit the ground running." Along the way she graduated from Griffith University with a Bachelor of Communication.
"The best part of the job is watching owners with patients being discharged to go home. Especially those who were critical when they arrived. I've watched the AES Team help so many patients over the years and hold each other together during less successful times. I feel so lucky to be part of such a great group of people."
In her spare time Solange enjoys reading, skinny lattes, uncontrolled laughter, photography, and hanging out with family. She and her husband farewelled their 11 year old Cavoodle 'Cino' in 2015 (at AES Underwood) and adopted 'Livvy' in 2016. She is an Australian Cattle Dog x Border Collie - a working dog who loves to round her Mum up every chance she can.
