Our Staff

Dr. Richard Creed

Richard graduated from Sydney University with 1st class honours in 1991 and started at the Lismore Veterinary Clinic the following year. He became a partner in the practice in 1995. Richard has a strong passion for his career and supports the profession by regularly mentoring veterinary students. He is ashamed to admit that he owns a chihuahua. His name is Nacho and he can be regularly seen at the clinic.

Dr. Nick Jones

Nick obtained a Bachelor of Science in 1994 and followed up with honours the following year. He graduated from veterinary science in 1999 from the University of Queensland and started at the Lismore Veterinary Clinic immediately, carrying on the family tradition of providing veterinary services to Lismore. His pets include four children, one dog (Iggy Pup) and two cats (Mr Puss and Olive).

Hannah Elliott

Hannah was born and bred in Lismore. As a result she seems to know everyone who comes through the door and has an amazing ability to remember all of their pets and each pets individual complaint. Hannah works as a casual vet nurse but is in for at least a few days every week. She also has strange addiction to daschunds.

Dr Nao Matsumoto

Nao was born in Japan but migrated to Australia late in her high school years. She graduated from University of Queensland in 2018 and joined the practice immediately afterwards. Nao is a self confessed crazy cat lady but extends her care and compassion to all other animal species as well.

Kirsty McLintock

Kirsty was born in Scotland and has been at the clinic as a vet nurse since 2011. She has maintained her strong Scottish accent so if you can't understand our staff when you ring us it is probably because Kirsty has answered the phone.

Dr Jayne Dwyer

Jayne graduated from University of Melbourne in 1992 with honours. She has spent her career in mixed practice in Victoria, Queensland and NSW. She joined the practice in 2011. Jayne has a passion for all animals and runs a small hobby farm with sheep, goats, cattle, chooks, a horse and three children. 

Louise Moss

After volunteering for over a year Louise joined us as a nurse in 2007. There is nothing in the clinic that she cannot do. Everyone loves Louise and she is often referred to as our "Golden Girl".

Danielle Sykes

Danielle started working at the practice in 2007 after a stint as a volunteer. Between her nursing duties she somehow finds the time to do the office administration work. The clinic could not operate without her. She has a Pomeranian named Winston and joint custody of a family of Guinea Pigs.

Molly Stone

Molly joined the team as a vet nurse after volunteering during her TAFE studies. She is the only nurse committed enough to work full time, all the others need at least one day off each week.

Duncan Davie

Duncan is a rare species, a male vet nurse. He was born in Rhodesia and has lived all over the world. He has found many of his African wildlife skills useful in handling people of the Northern Rivers. When he is not involved in nursing duties he is repairing and maintaining much of the clinic equipment.

Rachel Hayes

Rachel has been working with us since 2007. On top of all her nursing duties she manages the customer accounts. She loves Boxer dogs and bred them for many years and currently has one Boxer called Daisy and a French Bulldog called Kobe.
