Greg Joined MVS at the start of 2001 as a locum for the small and large animal team after recently returning from the UK having locumed there for 2 years.

Greg graduated in May 1996 from Massey University and began work in Waihi as a mixed animal Veterinarian. After 18 months he moved to Anexa Morrinsville (Animal Health Center at the time) where a further two years were spent before heading off on his OE to the UK.

Greg now spends his time working alongside local farming clients doing both ambulatory work typical of Veterinarians and additional nutritional planning for farms. Greg has a keen interest in Ruminant Nutrition and his articles feature monthly in the Rural News where topical farm issues focussing on mainly nutritional issues are discussed. In February 2017 after 20 years since he last formally studied, Greg dusted off his books and enrolled in the MVM (Masters in Veterinary Medicine) program held extramurally through Massey University.

Outside of work Greg enjoys road cycling having completed the Taupo Cycle challenge 6 times now, traveling with his family and barbequing up a storm in his spare time.
