New NZVA Board member appointed

Wednesday 12 October 2022

The NZVA Board is pleased to announce that Annabel Harris has been selected to fill the position of Appointed Veterinary Member on the Board.

Annabel graduated from Massey University in 2005 and moved to North Canterbury to start in mixed practice, with the intention to travel to the UK. That OE never happened, and Annabel now lives with her husband and three children on their sheep farm in the Hurunui district.

She has served five years on a school board (three as Board Chair) and developed a strong practical understanding of governance and the vital, proactive role that boards play.

Annabel currently works in clinical dairy practice, with a special interest in milk quality. She enjoys the close working relationship between clients and veterinarians in dairy practice. She has a strong desire to see all veterinarians and allied professionals feel well supported in their roles and able to perform to their best ability.

Annabel recently picked up a hockey stick again after a gap of two decades and is often found adventuring in the hills and rivers of Canterbury.
