Dr. Lisa Chimes gets to combine her love of animals and her passion for television with her role as a vet with ‘smarts’ on on the popular Channel Ten program Bondi Vet. Her role on the much loved family program sees her in the trenches of Sydney’s Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH). Lisa works in their 24 hour emergency and critical care unit called VetICU, even when the cameras stop rolling, helping save the lives of our fury family members. Bondi Vet will continue to follow the very gracious yet ballsy Lisa and the SASH team on their life saving missions for a seventh season to air in 2015.
After graduating from Sydney University in 2006 with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science with first class honours, Lisa completed her internship in veterinary emergency and critical care in Melbourne. It was during these years that Lisa discovered her passion for providing specialist and compassionate care for dogs and cats (all breeds and sizes!) so in 2008, Lisa moved back to her home suburb of Bondi and commenced work at SASH. In 2010, Lisa obtained post-graduate qualifications by becoming a member of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists in Small Animal Medicine.
Lisa is an ambassador for The Animal Welfare League and has worked on various awareness campaigns to help promote pet health and safety. Lisa is a favourite on the pet expo circuit, sharing her knowledge and animal know how with public in her spare time.
Lisa now resides near Bondi in Sydney with husband Brad, young son Hudson and their other babies, dogs Nelson and Lucas.
