We pride ourselves on our service being delivered by a team of compassionate, knowledgeable and skilled individuals.

Steve graduated from the University of Queensland in 1981. He worked at various locations within rural Australia, including three years as a flying vet in the Kimberleys & Territory. Since then, Steve has owned and operated vet surgeries in Redland Bay, Esk and now in the South Burnett since 2004.

Steve enjoys working on all animals but has a particular passion for horses & cattle.

In his spare time, you'll find him out fishing or Clay Target Shooting!

Angela was born & bred on the Atherton Tablelands in North Queensland.  Since graduating from JCU in 2014, she has worked in mixed and small animal practices in South East Qld.

Angela enjoys all areas of mixed practice and particularly enjoys being able to help owners and their animals.

On 'days off' Ange enjoys spending time with family and friends, and travelling.

Sophia was born in Roma and grew up on a cattle property west of Roma township. Sophia left her past career as an engineer and graduated from the University of Queensland in 2018. She thoroughly enjoys all aspects of mixed practice medicine and surgery.

In Sophia’s spare time she enjoys running, spending time with her two dogs or losing herself in a good novel.

Erika Winter

Veterinary Nurse (Currently completing Cert 4 Veterinary Nursing)

Erika joined our team at Wooroolin Veterinary Services in January 2018.  Having lived in the rural Kingaroy area all her life, she has a passion for animals and is currently completing her Cert 4 in Veterinary Nursing.

Erika enjoys working with our clients to help provide the best care for their pets.

'Days off' for Erika are spent with family and friends as well as her faithful dog 'Bruno'.  Erika also enjoys reading and travelling and has had the opportunity to visit Europe, New Zealand, Vanuatu, Lord Howe & Norfolk Islands.  

Fiona Steele

Veterinary Nurse (Currently completing Cert 4 in Veterinary Nursing)

Fiona joined us in 2016 as Veterinary Nurse at our Wooroolin Clinic.  Growing up on cattle and sheep properties in far western Queensland nurtured a passion for animals during her early days.  Many hours were spent on her horse mustering and droving cattle, and back at home with a variety of dogs and cats!  

Life 'outside of Vet Nursing' for Fiona consists of study and looking after her accident prone show horses, as well as two cats and two Border Collie work dogs. 

Alexandra Zabel

Veterinary Nurse (Certificate IV Veterinary Nurse)

Alex has recently moved to the South Burnett from the Lockyer Valley, Qld.

She originally completed study to become a Biosecurity Officer with an interest in livestock and disease investigation. Vet nursing was the path she took to begin gaining experience in the animal industry and has remained her career of choice ever since. Alex has worked in several clinics in South East Queensland, enjoying all aspects of the job, particularly surgical nursing.

Interests for Alex include working with her husband on their cattle property, horse riding, cooking and sport/fitness.

Wendy Kelly

Veterinary Practice Manager

Growing up in Brisbane, Wendy kicked off a career in realestate until a horse with colic and a call to the local vet (namely Steve!) introduced her to the veterinary industry - she has been part of the Veterinary practice team for over 30 years now. 

Wendy looks after all the financials and admins of the surgery and keeps our team full of smiles. 

Hobbies include enjoying the beach with her terriers and spoiling her new granddaughter.

Emma Hafey

Veterinary Nurse (Currently completing Cert 4 Veterinary Nursing)

Emma grew up and remains local to the Tansey area.

She loves working as a vet nurse as it indulges her passion for working with animals, and enjoys being able to give back by helping those who are ill or injured.

Emma is also an avid Polo-X player and spends her days off riding her horses, and with her daughter 'Lilly'.


Alex Kelly

Veterinary Nurse (Cert 2 Veterinary Nursing)

Alex grew up trailing Dad (Steve) around the vet surgeries, and riding her ponies at home. This lead to some great opportunities and much time spent travelling around Australia and the world working in the equine and veterinary nursing industries.

Having settled back into the local area, she is enjoying vet nursing once again and says one of the highlights is the 'never quite knowing what will walk through the door today.'

Alex's hobbies include planning the next travel adventure for her family - and taking her Basset Hound to the beach!
