Dr. Belinda Parsons
She has completed 3 additional years of study in Veterinary Oncology, Small Animal Endocrinology, and Small Animal Neurology through Massey University. She attended the first Australian Veterinary Palliative Care Advisory Council Conference in May 2018.
She is an avid campaigner for Fear Free Veterinary Visits and is a Level 3 Certified Fear Free Practitioner. She understands that the emotional wellbeing of a patient is just as important as their physical wellbeing and proactively takes steps to reduce fear, anxiety, and stress in her patients.
Dr. Belinda is, unfortunately, no stranger to grief. Her father died during her 2nd year in Veterinary School, and more recently she lost two grandparents and her father in law over a six month period. It is through her own experiences with grief and loss that she is not afraid to be vulnerable with families at this difficult time.
Her family apprises of husband James, daughters Lily and Georgie, and furbabies Charlie and Elmo. Her favourite activities outside of the veterinary world are bushwalking with the family (including the dogs) through our local reserves, photography and traveling the world.
Jack and Percy, were two very much loved members of Dr. Belinda’s family, it is in their memory that Dr. Belinda has decided to offer her in-home palliative care and euthanasia service.

Dr. Karishma Nandha BVSc (Hons), Grad Cert
The reason Karishma loves being a veterinarian is the human-animal bond, she also loves getting to know her clients (both furry and human). Karishma enjoys geriatric medicine, emergency and critical care, and soft tissue surgery.
Karishma is owned by her furkids Tindra (14yr old Belgian Shepherd) and Milly (unknown age domestic short hair cat, she’s a failed foster). She also has a young family who keeps her very busy outside of work.
Emma Mills has always loved animals, but it wasn’t until back in 2011 when she got a casual job in a pet shop did she realise that her passion and future was in the veterinary industry. She started studying in 2012 and has worked as a Vet Nurse for the last 6 years.
Her love for palliative care stems from her childhood dogs Max and Bobbie who she absolutely adored and was passionate about ensuring that they were comfortable in their last few years. She also has a beautiful Mini Fox Terrier Bella who is 19 years old and requires palliative care for her arthritis and dementia. She believes our elderly pets deserve their last few years to be as pain-free and full of love as we can possibly make it.
Emma is a certificate IV certified Veterinary Nurse and also certificate III Fear Free certified. She believes that the chances of recovery for animals will be much faster if their experience is positive and as stress-free as possible.
Emma’s family consists of her husband Mark, her beautiful daughter Lilah and her menagerie of animals including her 3 dogs: Sadie, Rory, and Bella. Her 2 cats: Lucy Lu and Jackson, and her 54-year-old Cockatoo Charlie who she has known all her life.
She is super excited to join Rouse Hill Family Vets and to work in helping our elderly four-legged friends have the best quality of life they can.

Veterinary Nurse Trainee
I started in the industry in 2019 by completing my certificate 2 in animal studies, I then completed my certificate 3 in animal studies in 2020. I am currently completing my certificate 4 in Veterinary Nursing.
I love coming into work and getting to interact with all the amazing clients at Rouse Hill Family Vets and be able to look after their fur babies. I also love that Rouse Hill Family Vets is a fear-free clinic and makes sure that their patients’ emotional well-being is being looked after just as much as their physical well-being.
After working in healthcare (predominantly oncology) for over 28 years I decided upon a career/tree-change so moved to Rylstone Central West and worked on an organic sheep farm, where I re-ignited my passion for working with animals.
I completed the Certificate III Animal Studies in 2019. I have volunteered at both not-for-profit rescues and pounds, as well as a working farm. I have a keen interest in animal behaviour, specifically with rescue animals and equine.
I have a 10-year-old West Highland White Terrier named Logan and 3 cats – Cooper (3 yrs), Darcy (3yrs), and Rafferty (2 yrs) all rescues.
I commenced at RHFV on 1 March 2021 and so far I am absolutely loving it!! There is something new to learn every day and the best part is meeting all the clients and having cuddles with very cute dogs and cats. Best job ever!!
