  • Dr
    Molly Barret

    Molly graduated from Charles Sturt University in 2022, before beginning her career in Canberra and then starting with us at QVH in mid 2023. Molly grew up on the Monaro, so although she now works primarily with small animals, she does have a soft spot for largies- and is often found on her parent's and grandparent's properties in Cooma on the weekends. Molly has an interest in exotic medicine (especially rats!) and small animal surgery. She is also Fear Free and Stress-Free Pets certified, meaning she is more than happy to help your more anxious pets.

A Canberra local, Naomi completed her certificate four in Veterinary Nursing in 2015. Naomi’s pets include cockatiels Ash and Peppie, a beagle named Zara, and a cat named Elvis (the King!) In her spare time Naomi enjoys relaxing with her pets and watching movies.
