Meet Our Team

  

KENT MARSHALL

Veterinarian (BVSc (Qld) MANZCVS)

Kent graduated from the University of Queensland in 1986. He moved to Melbourne following graduation and worked in a small animal practice that treated many greyhounds and show dogs. It was here that he developed a special interest in musculo-skeletal problems and diagnosing causes of lameness. He qualified as a Member of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists Surgery chapter in 1994. Kent has had Cavalier King Charles spaniels and Cavoodles as members of his family over the years. Away from work he likes to travel and spend time with his family. He is a keen Melbourne Storm supporter and tries to get to the games when he is not working.


LAURA DALY

Veterinarian (DVM)

Dr Laura Daly originates from Ireland, but has been working in the UK since she graduated from the Szent Istvan University in Budapest. Laura recently moved to Australia with her boyfriend James and their fur baby Harvey after holidaying here last year and falling in love with the lifestyle (& climate)! Knox Vet is extremely lucky to have Laura onboard and hope she stays with us for a very long time.


SAMANTHA HO

Veterinarian (BSc (Veterinary Biology), DVM)

Sam joined our team after graduating from Murdoch University in Perth, WA. Originally from Melbourne, she loves being back home surrounded by the culture and getting to spend time with her family. Sam's interests outside of work include reading, creating art and learning more about different cultures including their traditions and language, but mainly of their food!


BIANKA CSIZMAS

Veterinarian ( BVSc, BSc (Veterinary Microbiology) (Hons))

Bianka moved back to Melbourne from tropical North Queensland after graduating from James Cook University. While she misses the lovely weather, she is very happy to be back at home surrounded by her friends and family. Upon graduating, she undertook an intensive 12 month internship at Southpaws Specialty Surgery, gaining valuable experience in small animal medicine and surgery. This knowledge will no doubt serve her well in our busy general practice. In her free time Bianka looks after her 3 cats, 3 chickens, 1 dog and her fiance Michael. She tries to spend as much time outdoors, cooking and eating good food and being as creative as possible.
