Her experience includes 10 years as a zoo vet working with almost all creatures great and small and has worked since 2001 as a native and exotic pet vet in companion animal practice.Sasha's dream is for all vets to be able to confidently provide the same level of care to unusual pets that they provide to cats and dogs and to this end is always teaching and learning on the job at the hospital at the University of Melbourne.Since 2006 Sasha has been providing pet care advice on Saturday mornings for ABC radio. On her other weekends she likes building things for her house, garden and pets, going to costumed events and reading absurd amounts of fantasy and sci-fi.
