Day Job

Veterinarian at Hamilton Veterinary Clinic


Ron is originally from Sydney where he graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science. His studies took him to the United States where he got to work in the top veterinary surgeons at Cornell University and helped care for wildlife at Phoenix Zoo. In addition, Ron has been able to work with farmers in rural Laos.

Over the past few years Ron has spent most of his time surfing the coast whilst learning the ropes of becoming a vet. He worked at the Albion Park & Gerringong Vet Hospitals on the South Coast for 2 years before moving to Newcastle.

He is now enjoying life in Merewether and is working at Hamilton Veterinary Clinic. Ron’s interest is in small animal orthopaedic surgery, ultrasonography, practice management and business development.

Outside of work Ron enjoys surfing, checking the surf forecast, checking the surf cams and checking the wind. Other than surfing (which takes up alot of his time) he frequently participates in triathlons, is a serial music festival goer and enjoys travelling, roasting coffee and digging through racks for vinyl.
