Barb Kearney
Vet Nurse

I started at Central Vets in 2005 and studied Vet Nursing by distance correspondence, graduating in 2009.  I like a nice coffee and good food.  My fur family consists of one axolotyl, a duck that I hatched from an egg, 2 birds, 3 dogs, 10 cats and 16 pet sheep!!  Caring for them all takes up a lot of my spare time.  Once a week I take a pet to visit the elderly at a local rest home.  Pilates, pump, biking, swimming and walking my dogs are my favorite ways to unwind.

Barry de Sitter
Veterinarian
Barry qualified as a veterinarian, with a special interest in dairy, at Utrecht University in the Netherlands in May 2015. Before his veterinarian degree he took a B. Comn but realised later that working in the corporate world, wouldn’t satisfy him enough. A life in the great wide open and amongst animals, especially the ones that have brought human kind so much, the cow, was a must. So when he was 27 he changed his career path to become a veterinarian. If you ask him if that was a good idea, you will get a big laugh and a definite YES ! After a year working in Deventer, The Netherlands, among high producing Holsteins, Barry moved with his family to South Africa, there he found his love for large pasture grazing herds. A great experience in a beautiful country with amazing people and animals. After nearly 4 years, future visa and work permit uncertainty made him apply for a fantastic opportunity in New Zealand. Why wouldn’t he, because in his own words: “I have to experience myself the pasture grazing dairy country par excellence!” Having recently arrived with his wife, Femke, and their three children, they are all looking forward to living in Ashburton. Barry and his family hope to learn from the area, the people and the dairy community. He is eager to meet you all soon and meanwhile will do his best to leave people, places and cows better than he finds them. If you ever need travel advice, or advice on which beer to drink, in The Netherlands or South Africa please feel free to get in contact with him as he is more than happy to have a chat.

Becks Smith
Veterinarian
Becks joined the Central Vets team in late 2009 as a new graduate veterinarian.  Having spent her childhood in the North Island, Papua New Guinea and Dunedin she is quick to embrace new communities.  This has definitely been the case in Ranfurly where she has taken all opportunities to partake in rural life.  In her spare time Becks enjoys a wide range of sporting activities (especially skiing), socializing with friends, Young Farmers Club and training any working pups that come her way!!  Becks lives with her partner Jason and has Colin the cat and Mint the Dog keeping her busy when not at work or sporting.

Belinda-Hamlin-WEB
Veterinarian
I grew up in Dunedin and feel like I always wanted to be a vet. I started volunteering at my local vet clinic when I was 13 and have never looked back. I graduated from Massey University in 2002 and since then my career has taken me around the world and provided many amazing experiences, the highlight being 2 years in Samoa working with an animal welfare organisation. I have been living in Christchurch since the start of 2018 with my husband and two teenagers and I am loving being part of the companion animal team at Lincoln. Outside of worktime I enjoy Ultimate Frisbee, yoga, skiing and walking our hyperactive Wirehaired Pointer.

Ben Green  joined VetEnt in 2006 having served 20 year as a Regular Army Officer. Having served in Bosnia, Bougainville and Afghanistan, it was a logical choice to take up employment with VetEnt! Ben was made a  Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for his service in Afghanistan and now  enjoys less stressful pursuits of hunting fish and game outside of work. Ben worked at VetEnt Wairoa for 5 years as Branch Manager prior to being appointed Regional Manger based out of Gisborne in Dec  2010 and also manages the national Health and Safety and Training for the company. Having seen the company more than double in size since being part of VetEnt, Ben enjoys the being part of an organisation that encourages innovation and initiative to deliver real value to clients.
