Maree grew up on a sheet and cattle ranch in the Australian outback. There she helped her family muster sheep and draft cattle, with the ranch working dogs. She developed a deep love for animals big and small. She started her career as a human health care nurse before becoming a veterinarian and moving to Oregon in 2007.
Maree worked as an intern in emergency and critical care, and eventual full time staff doctor at Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital. She gained extensive experience in emergency medicine and intensive care and in 2014, she joined Animal Care Group of Lake Oswego as a primary care veterinarian within a referral practice. Maree is committed to bringing her experience in emergency and general practice to Lake Oswego Pet Emergency and working with referring veterinarians on the best way to meet the needs of those patients needing after hours care.
