Introducing Dr Lisca Martinez and Dr Georgina Lowson as the new owners of the Holland Park and Carina Veterinary Clinics

Dr Georgina Lowson BVSc (Hons)
I graduated from University of Queensland School of Veterinary Science in 1996 with first class honours. Since graduating, I have worked in many small animal practices, including Victoria, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and Brisbane.

Over the last 15 years I have lived locally and worked in busy small animal practices in South East Brisbane.  I have had the privilege working with pet owners to provide a high standard of veterinary care to the local community.

As I am passionate about providing the best quality veterinary health care to your pets! To ensure I provide the most up to date veterinary science to your pets, I have kept up with continuing education including  multiple Sydney University CVE courses in small animal internal medicine, small animal surgery, and  radiology. I also regularly attend many smaller courses, conferences and seminars in small animal anaesthetics, analgesia, trauma, emergency medicine and dentistry just to name a few.

Outside of work I am kept very busy with my husband and 2 daughters, often enjoying various equestrian pursuits, the hobby we all share. Our extended family includes many much loved animals including our two cats ‘Jemima’ and ‘Tiddles’,  cheeky Jack Russel Terrier ‘Peanut’ and  and of course our 2 horses Mallory Square and Ricky!

I am looking forward to meeting all our clients, new and old and welcoming many more as we grow the practices into the future. Exciting times ahead!

Dr Lisca Martinez BVSc

Lisca grew up in North Queensland before moving to Brisbane to finish high school and attend Vet School at University of Queensland. After graduating in 1997, she moved back to Townsville for the first few years of veterinary life. It was an interesting start in a rapidly growing practice and included work at Magnetic Island and looking after the Koalas at Koala Park.  She then ventured overseas travelling and working through the UK and spent a short time working in a small animal practice in Shanghai. After returning to Brisbane she has worked mainly in her local community including work at Stones Corner, Yeronga, Bulimba and Holland Park and Carina. Lisca is very excited to be back with Holland Park and Carina Veterinary Clinics and hopes to see the practices producing the best of patient care and develop strong bonds with the community.

Lisca enjoys continuous learning and has special interests in Ophthalmology and geriatric health, but enjoys all the variation the general small animal practice has to offer.  Lisca’s house is home to Roger the Boxer, Stella the little rescue terrier cross and 3 chickens.
