Sandra is originally from the Netherlands and ever since she was little she could be found at the local riding school. Therefore, it wasn’t a surprise when she graduated from veterinary school in Utrecht in 2015 with an equine major.
After she graduated, Sandra completed the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination prior to completing a rotating equine internship at both Cambridge Equine Hospital in the UK and the Equine Health and Performance Centre at the University of Adelaide. She also worked as an equine veterinarian at the Veterinary Clinical Centre, Charles Sturt University before she started working at Canberra Equine Hospital.
Sandra likes all aspects of equine medicine, but during her study and internships, she developed a special interest in equine internal medicine, especially foal medicine, gastrointestinal problems and cardiology.
In her spare time, Sandra enjoys travelling and being outside exploring (Australian) nature. Now that she is settled in Canberra she intends to start horse riding again.
