Natashia attended the University of Sydney where she earned a Bachelor of Science, Masters of Science and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Following her graduation from veterinary school, she spent time in feline only practice for three years. She then completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the Animal Referral Hospital Sydney, a residency in small animal internal medicine at the University of Sydney, and a residency in small animal emergency and critical care at the University of Wisconsin.
Natashia has completed research on infectious diseases, urethral defects and focal pulmonary granulomas. Her findings have been published in multiple journals including the Australian Veterinary Journal and Medical Mycology. She has been invited to lecture on feline uretheral obstructions at the University of Sydney and in 2012 she was granted the Cancer Research Network Travel grant which enabled her to present her research at the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
Natashia is experienced in all aspects of small animal emergency and critical care and has a particular interest in management of sepsis and septic shock, infectious diseases (fungal diseases in particular) and mechanical ventilation. Her favourite part of veterinary medicine is seeing critically ill patients reunited with their owners. When not treating patients, Natashia enjoys travelling, exploring new places and ice hockey.
