Katrina is originally from England and came to New Zealand in 2013. She has qualifications in Agriculture and recently studied Animal Care at Wintec. She lives on a dairy farm and has a very keen interest in the dairy farming industry.

Brenda Searancke


Brenda was born and raised in Cambridge. She has always had a love of animals and studied Animal Care at Wintec. “I am very excited about joining the team and look forward to meeting and helping all our clients at Cambridge Vets”.



Kate Ball

Receptionist – (currently on maternity leave)

Born and bred in Cambridge and having grown up with breeding and showing of dogs, it’s no wonder Kate is mad keen about animals.  Once finished school, Kate’s itchy feet took her to Melbourne to work in hospitality but after a few years, the call of home was too strong to resist.  Back home to Cambridge and after working in retail, Kate jumped at the opportunity to join the team at CVS.  Her previous experience means Kate’s a natural behind the counter.  She greets everyone as if she knows them – many she does –  and is very comfortable helping clients decide on which product is right for them. 


Sonya Evans


Sonya was born and raised in the Waikato and now lives on a lifestyle block between Cambridge and Hamilton. She has worked in a veterinary clinic before leaving to raise her children and has since worked part-time in a Livestock company before joining Cambridge Vets just after Christmas 2020.
