BVSc (Hons), CHPV, Dip CMT
Jackie is widely recognised as one of Australia’s leading voices in the field of veterinary palliative care. As the Director of Sunset Vets, the nation’s largest network of veterinarians focused exclusively on palliative and end-of-life services, she spends much of her time helping families to navigate medical decision making at end-of-life, with the remainder of her days dedicated to training, educating, and speaking on palliative care topics.
In 2017 she became Australia’s very first veterinarian to achieve international certification in Animal Hospice and Palliative Care (CHPV) through the IAAHPC and has long been a passionate advocate for the advancement of palliative medicine within the veterinary field. She has clinical interests in the management of chronic pain and is one of the founding members of the Australian Veterinary Palliative Care Advisory Council, an organisation committed to improving clinical skills and access to palliative resources for veterinarians and their teams.
