Meet The Team
Dr Jessica Fawkes - Veterinarian
Jessica graduated from Murdoch University’s Vet School in 1991. She works exclusively in small animal practice and strives to stay current in an ever-changing and advancing profession.
Her experience includes several months as a volunteer veterinarian in the south Pacific, and a couple of years working in the UK, first as a new graduate and more recently for the 2009 and 2010 summers in northern England. She previously owned a successful veterinary clinic in Perth for 11 years before taking over the Rockingham Veterinary Clinic in 2011.
At home, Jessica has two dogs and Monty, an old Burmese cat who is the undisputed boss of the house. Jessica says, "When I'm not working, I enjoy reading, taking the dogs for walks, and cooking. I look forward to providing a caring and professional veterinary service to the Rockingham community for many years to come."
Dr Amber Leonard - Veterinarian

Amber says, "My interests in vet practice include ophthalmology, dermatology, birds, exotics and behavioural medicine. I have two dogs, BMO and Jimmy. When I'm not at work, I like reading, playing computer games, going to the gym and, of course, taking the two dogs to the beach."

• Degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare
I qualified as a veterinary nurse in England and worked there as a veterinary nurse for 8 years. I then came over to Perth and started my career with Vetwest in 2016 working at Vetwest Mandurah.
Along with my nursing qualifications, I also have a degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare and have a passion for puppy socialisation and behaviour.
I moved to Perth with my husband, 2 young daughters and my black labrador Comit. I also share my home with 2 cats Nemo and Olaf, which I have adopted from Vetwest. I am loving the outdoor way of life here, and enjoy taking my family to the beach and going camping.
