Simone Maher


Following graduation from Sydney University, Simone started her career as a new graduate at the RSPCA’s Yagoona hospital. Working with both private patients and shelter animals, she rapidly developed an appreciation of the importance of “herd health” in a shelter and was heavily involved in the design and redevelopment of numerous RSPCA veterinary hospitals and developing policies and training programmes for infection control. Simone moved on to become Chief Veterinarian of Animal Welfare League NSW, which was devastated by the impact of feline parvovirus in 2016. Now Deputy Director of the Centre for Veterinary Education, Simone remains committed to animal welfare and serves on both ethics and advisory committees.
