Kate Schmelz

Vet Nurse

Kate is originally from Dunedin but has lived in Wanaka for the last 10 years.  She studied Veterinary Nursing at Otago Polytechnic and after her work experience with Wanaka Vets she was able to secure a position with them in mid-2011.  At the age of 11, Kate was a volunteer at the Dunedin SPCA and when a Staffy X pup came into the clinic to be re-homed it was too difficult to resist.  Her other interests are skiing, mountain biking, gardening, music festivals, boating on the lake, diving, swimming and walking the dog.
