Robert is from West Auckland and moved to Te Aroha after spending 5 years studying at Massey University. He and his wife Meryl have recently worked in the UK and as lifestyle vets in Auckland. When he is not in his overalls you can find him fishing, hiking and rock climbing. The decision to become a vet was made early on in life with an upbringing of animals (and James Herriot). His passion is all creatures great and small.
