Issue 51 - Welcome Kate Drew


Dr Kate Drew has been appointed as the Board’s Complaints Support Officer. This new role has been created by the Board to support its work in preparing documentation during the complaints review process.

Kate is a small animal general practitioner, working part-time in Sydney’s inner west. In a past life, she was a corporate lawyer at a top 10 Australian commercial law firm.

Kate is a passionate advocate for animal welfare and is looking forward to utilising her skills in legal drafting and veterinary science to support the Board’s important work. To say she is excited by the opportunity this role presents to combine her skills is an understatement.

Kate has two small children, so her interests currently include watching Peppa Pig on repeat, playing hide and seek and colouring in. Her long-term goal is to have her own hobbies and interests again (although she has found colouring in to be very relaxing).
