Veterinarian & Practice Owner (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 Elton the geriatric cat, Roger the Boxer, Stella the little rescue terrier cross and 3 chickens.
Veterinarian & Practice Owner (BVSc (Hons))
I graduated from University of Queensland School of Veterinary Science in 1996 with first class honors. Since graduating I have worked in many small animal practices including Victoria, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and Brisbane. Over the last 13 years I have lived locally and worked in busy Small Animal Practices in South East Brisbane. I have had the privilege to work 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 anesthetics, 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 3 horses ‘Will’, ‘Dash’ and ‘Mickey’! 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!

Clinic(s) - Holland Park and Carina Vet Clinic
I graduated from University of Queensland in 1988. In the early years after graduation I worked at Maroochydore, Bli Bli & Bribie Island. Since then I’ve worked at Holland Park & Carina Clinics, initially full time & now part time, mainly at Holland Park. I have also enjoyed a few years working part time at TAFE which was a great experience.
My main interest is in small animal medicine. I gain satisfaction negotiating with pets, with their quirky behaviours and varied personalities, and providing advice and guidance to their caring owners!
Our family pets are currently boss cat Merlin, small dog Tino, 2 cute rats Pip & Spook, and
freshwater rainbows and blue eyes in an outdoor pond. In December 2018 we were saddened by the loss of our beautiful Lily dog, a boxer staffy cross.
My interests include reading, bushwalking, anything to do with the beach & a good coffee. My bicycle is unfortunately getting rusty and needs to entice me back on the bikeways.
