Belinda Hamlin


What’s the best part about your job? I love that I can do my job anywhere and adapt it to the resources I have at hand. Of course I also love getting to meet and help so many amazing creatures.

How did you get involved with the industry? I think I first wanted to be a vet from about 5 years of age. I grew up with pets of my own and helping on uncles farms then started volunteering at my local veterinary clinic when I was 13.

What’s your area of expertise? My current passions are veterinary dentistry and management of skin cases. I have also recently completed the Massey MVM Companion animal endocrinology paper and am currently studying small animal soft tissue surgery.

What are you most proud of? I know it’s cliché but I’m super proud of my kids aged 11 and 13, I love their creativity and enthusiasm for life.

Who inspires you? I’m most inspired by working with a dedicated, caring colleagues and love always learning new ways of doing things.

Where is your favourite place in the world? In the bush anywhere in New Zealand.

If you could be any animal, which would you be? Perhaps a monkey, they’re kind of cheeky and it must be fun climbing around in the trees all day.

What are you passionate about? Sharing knowledge with others

What are you currently watching on Netflix? Our Netflix subscripton has lapsed at the moment so my library membership is getting a good workout.

What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now? Enjoying adventures in Aotearoa, after being away for 8-9 years it’s great to be home.

What’s your secret talent that no one knows about? Being really awesome at squeezing way more stuff into the boot of a car than you would think is possible.
