Meet The Team


Dr. Kristina Lightfoot BSc BVMS


Dr Kris graduated Murdoch University in 1987 with honors. Kristina has worked in Busselton as a Veterinarian for 25 years and owned Claremont Veterinary Hospital for 13 years before selling up and opening Heritage Vets in Busselton. Dermatology is a keen interest of hers in the veterinary field, along with her beautiful choc lab Ruby-Rose who you will be greeted by here at reception!


Dr. Sharyn Vanderbeek BSc BVMS (hons)


Sharyn graduated from Murdoch University in 1998 after doing a science degree first at Adelaide University. Sharyn has been servicing the pets of the South West for more than 10 years and many of you may recognise her. Sharyn loves surgery especially soft tissue surgeries. Recently Sharyn and her husband Tim opened the only pet crematorium in the SW, Rainbow Bay Pet Cremations.

Sharyn lives in Yallingup and has 3 boys, 2 dogs and a friendly kangaroo named Holly.


Dr. Rachael Williams BvetMed MRCVS


Rachael spent her first couple of years practicing in the UK. She arrived in Australia in 2013 and has been working here ever since. After being in Geraldton for almost 3 years she then spent some time working in Darwin and her last place of work was in Yamba in Northern NSW.
Lucky for us Rachael has decided the South West of WA is the best place to be in Australia and she is intending to settle in the area permanently. You will find Dr Rachael here at Heritage on most Saturday's :)

Kelsie Munro

Registered Vet Nurse

I started my traineeship at Heritage in 2015 and recently qualified as a RVN in 2017. I have one blue heeler Moe who keeps me on my toes and have a big love of art and the outdoors outside of nursing. 

What I enjoy most about my job is the connections I make with my patients in care, as well as diagnostic imaging which I really enjoy doing and continue to learn about.

Danielle Jones

Registered Vet Nurse

My name is Danielle and I am a Vet Nurse at Heritage Vets, I am very passionate about nursing and absolutely loving it! I am very grateful to the Vets and Nurses who have trained me and given me lots of helpful tips along the way. I hope to qualify next year in 2019 but I will continue to study and complete short courses in certain aspects of nursing. Above is myself and Lucy.


Sarah Parrott

Registered Vet Nurse

Originally from the UK I settled in Australia after my travels. Having worked in other industries for years, I always had a love for animals and so I became qualified in 2012 as a vet nurse.I gained experience in some busy hospitals in Perth until 2 years ago when we moved south for the beach life with our dog monkey and my 4yr old boy.

Tammy Birch

Registered Vet Nurse

I completed my studies to become a vet nurse in 2005 through Swan TAFE. I thoroughly enjoy my job and the challenges and joy it can bring. I live in Vasse with my husband Matt, our two boys Joshua and Isaac and Chihuahua's Jimmy and Tianna. Outside of work I enjoy attending dog shows with Tianna and agility with Jimmy.
