Meet Dr Bek’s team




Dr. Rebekah Day

Principal and Head Veterinarian, B.V.Sc, Cert (IVAS), Cert (AQIS), Cert (Cam Farms), Cert (PennHIP)

I grew up on a property in a very small country town in North Queensland. My parents indulged my love for animals by providing everything from dogs and cats to chickens and geese to horses and cattle, even a frilled-neck lizard that regularly attended the BBQs on our back lawn!

My love of the country life and large animals has meant I have spent my entire veterinary career in small, country communities, working on whatever species of animal that came through the door. I’ve dealt with many interesting animals and illnesses, including treating a lion with kidney failure, diagnosing and trying to treat a Hendra horse and, recently, discovering a previously unknown genetic disease in terriers.

I absolutely love my job and I can’t imagine working as anything else but a veterinarian, even with the after hours cases!

Dr Rachael Harfield

Veterinarian (BSc DVM)

After a significant career change from the finance & superannuation industry, I graduated as a veterinarian from The University of Melbourne in 2017 and have been working in small animal practice in Melbourne since then.

Having enjoyed many holidays in Bright and after completing multiple placements with Alpine Animal Doctors I have now relocated from Melbourne to join Dr Bek and the team.

I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine but have a special interest in surgery. Outside of work, Rocky the Jack Russell and Charlie the Cavoodle keep me busy.

I look forward to meeting you and taking care of your family members of the non-human variety!

Mary Clapperton

Mary has been part of the team since 2011, after previously working in administration in Melbourne for over 10 years. She obtained her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing in 2013. Mary is also an authorised Microchip implanter and a registered member of the Veterinary Nurses Council of Australia.

Mary was raised in Porepunkah and some of her family still live in the area. She now lives in Wodonga with her husband and daughter. Mary loves her job so much that she continues to make the long drive from Wodonga, although only on a part time basis these days.

At home, Mary has a pug – Lexi, three cats – Mario, Luigi and Bingo Meow, two bearded dragons – Falkor and Axel, one gecko – Fireman Gecko and lots of fish. Luigi and Mario were hand raised from birth by Mary.

Cassie Crafter

Veterinary Nurse

After starting my professional career as a human Physiotherapist I made my move into the world of vet nursing in 2015 when I obtained my certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. After completing a few placements at Alpine Animal Doctors I was lucky enough to keep working with the fabulous team upon graduating. I am now a Registered Vet Nurse (RVN) and authorised microchip implanter. I spend my time working in both Physiotherapy and Veterinary fields and couldn’t be happier!

I grew up in the Alpine region and now live in Stanley with my partner Adam, son Archibald and the rest of the crew (rabbits Dallas & Cinnabun, dogs Panda & Hermione and budgies Haldor & Dottie).

Outside of work I enjoy taking advantage of what the local area has to offer including mountain biking and snowboarding. At the same time I am more than happy to curl up with a good book and a cuppa on a rainy day!!

Emily O’Sullivan

Veterinary Nurse

I started at the clinic 2019 and I haven’t looked back since! Everyone who knows me knows how much I love my job and how passionate towards the industry I am. I started my vet nursing career the week after my year 12 exams in 2018 and couldn’t picture myself doing anything else. I have always lived locally and grew up taking our family pets to Dr Bek and her team. I am eager to expand my knowledge of anaesthetics and general patient wellbeing, so you’ll usually find me out the back cuddling all the puppies and kittens!

Kaydence Hedges

Trainee Veterinary Nurse

I love animals just as much as my mum. I often can be found down the back of the clinic bandaging my toys and making them feel better.

I love growing up in a Vet clinic because I get to meet and play with lots of different animals, It’s great!
