Dr Courtney North Jumps the Ditch!

Earlier this year the Internal Medicine department welcomed a familiar face back to their team, Dr Courtney North had been supporting Internal Medicine in a locum position over the past 18 months and this year accepted a permanent position as Internal Medicine Specialist here at VSG®.

Courtney is a board certified internal medicine Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. She is registered as a specialist in New Zealand, USA and Australia where she has spent the past few years working in Perth, WA.

Frequent travelling over to New Zealand for a few weeks at a time along with Courtney’s love of “all things outdoorsy” is what swayed her to jump the ditch and accept the position at VSG®, relocating not just herself but her feisty cat Bug! Courtney’s love of travel was cemented early in her life, growing up in Africa (Malawi, Somalia, Sierra Leone and Djibouti), east coast of the United States and Europe due to her father’s career. Companion animal care obviously runs in her family as one of her two older sisters is also a veterinarian.

On behalf of everyone at VSG® we would like to welcome Courtney & Bug to the VSG® family and New Zealand. Courtney is highly trained, very experienced and her standard of care for her team members, clients and their pets is exceptional! We are so pleased to have her on this side of the ditch and look forward to great things for 2016.
