Our Receptionists


Office Manager / Reception

Renee joined the team back in October 2013 as our receptionist but when the position for Office Manager became available in January 2016 it was an obvious transition into the new role for Renee as she is highly organised with great attention to detail. She comes to us from another industry, previously in a role as a personal assistant for 5 years locally in Eltham for an electrical contractor; and she is loving the change to the animal industry.

She’s our resident crazy cat lover with her boy with “cattitude” Bryan! Renee’s pup nephew Jasper is featured in her staff photo as her cats were being less than cooperative on the day.

More about Reneé
Outside of work Renee spends her time with friends, family and long-time partner Jake. She enjoys Mexican food, group gym sessions, going to the movies and she’s a bit of a TV series fanatic! Renee will spend her very last dollar on live music, having seen an impressive 70+ shows and like most females is a shopaholic! Renee would also say she has the travel bug, having travelled America 3 times most recently in October 2016 – with Europe in her sights for next year!

Since starting at Eltham Vet Rene’e has made a delightful impression on clients and staff alike, as her cheerful personality has a way of brightening your day! If you have a pet insurance query or you’re just after a chat pop into the practice!

Having worked in Eltham previously and surrounding areas you’ve probably seen Ellie before, she worked at Aumanns garden centre also.

Ellie enjoys pretty much anything that involves animals and nature, having grown up always having a wide range of animals (the zoo) as she likes to call it. There’s certainly no reason to be bored at her house.


More about Ellie

On weekends she loves going out with her friends and finding new bars, live music venues that play 80’s and 90’s music.

Her days off are often spent hanging out with Indy her beloved Staffy, Op shopping and finding bargains, watching Netflix or exploring towns that have antique shops with her boyfriend .

Debbie first started at Eltham Vet in 2004 as a career change after many years in the corporate world; her last role as customer service manager at Telstra mobiles. Deb studied business at University but always wanted to work with animals and did regular volunteer work with the RSPCA before joining us at Eltham Vet. Now she is a foster carer for rescue kittens with the help of her family.

A true diehard Collingwood supporter and an all-round wonderful person, Deb has taken on the unofficial role of our work-mum and she’s adored by all, clients & staff alike.

Heidi joins us as a receptionist at EVP after working in hotels and resorts on the Great Barrier Reef.

Heidi has a love for all things water, whether she’s swimming in pools, in rivers or in the ocean, being around water is Heidi’s happy place! She also enjoys painting landscapes, gaining inspiration from nature walks and camping trips, reading, puns and solving word puzzles.

She adores dogs and is looking forward to having a large-sized hound in the future.



Originally from South Africa, Marissa moved to Australia when she was 18 years old and has been loving living in Melbourne with her fiancé ever since. Having always had an interest in working with animals, Marissa has quickly settled in with the rest of the team. During her spare time, Marissa enjoys exploring the sights and scenery around Melbourne with her fiancé Gino, trying out new restaurants and spending time at home with her four cats. You wouldn’t know it from speaking with her but English is actually her second language having studied it back in South Africa at school. We’ve loved getting to learn a little bit of Afrikaans at the practice as well.
