Barbera has been a qualified Veterinary Nurse for 15 years and has worked at several veterinary clinics across Melbourne. Barbera's special interests are in animal dentistry, critical care and emergency and birds.
Barbera left the industry 6 years ago to look after her family but has since returned in 2015. She started back at the Lost Dogs Home but realised after a couple of months that she wanted to go back into private practice and was offered a job at the Flemington Veterinary Hospital.
Since joining the team at the Flemington Veterinary Hospital, in November 2015, Barbera has gotten to know clients and their pets on a one on one basis and enjoys this relationship.
Barbera also has a menagerie of pets at home, consisting of chickens, budgies, finches, a couple of dogs and cats and an aquarium of tropical fish.
