Dr Monique Stanley graduated from the University of Queensland in 2006 with first class honours.
After spending 18 months in a busy mixed practice in rural Queensland, she realised her passion for emergency and critical care (ECC), commencing a rotating small animal internship at a Brisbane emergency and specialist centre.
Upon completion of the internship, Monique stayed on as an associate ECC veterinarian until 2014 when she undertook the big move to the University of Melbourne to begin a residency in ECC, finishing in 2016. Monique became an Emergency and Critical Care Specialist in 2018.
With more than eight years’ experience in emergency practice, Monique has joined the ARH team as the Clinical Director of the ECC service. Monique’s main clinical interests in veterinary emergency and critical care include management of clinical toxicology especially bleeding disorders associated with Australian snake envenomation, management of polytrauma and mechanical ventilation.
Monique is passionate about the clinical education of future emergency veterinarians and enjoys discussing transition to clinical practice with veterinary students. Monique has recently settled in Brisbane with her partner and their much loved dog, Bacon.
Outside of work, she loves spending time with family and friends and baking Portuguese custard tarts and other sweet treats to share with her colleagues. Monique also enjoys exploring the world whenever she gets the chance.
