Angela spent a decade working in emergency and critical care at the Wellington after-hours clinic, which she also managed for a number of years.
More recently Angela has spent four years in regulatory work with the Ministry of Primary Industries, during which time she underwent training in biosecurity and veterinary public health, while also completing a Master’s degree in veterinary medicine (Companion Animal).

A Massey graduate of 1988, David started his veterinary career as a dairy cattle vet in Taranaki before embarking on his OE. After 4 years based in England, David returned to NZ with an interest in companion animal practice and purchased the Central Hutt Veterinary Clinic in 1996. After 28 years of overseeing the practice and its significant growth, David sold the practice to Angela Park & Eve Falconer in 2023. David continues to work full time in the practice and outside of work he enjoys spending time with his family, running & tramping.

After Angela graduated from Massey, she worked for 4 years in a mixed practice in the Waikato, then spent the next 6 years as an itinerant locum veterinarian in the United Kingdom, interspersed with as much travel as the budget would allow. She returned to New Zealand with her partner and young son and began working as a locum in various clinics in the Wellington area. Angela tries to travel as much as possible, particularly enjoying long walking holidays in Europe.

Karen graduated from Massey University and delved straight into intensive dairy farm work in Taranaki for several years before the lure of foreign climes and exotic locations led to a year backpacking through Asia. This was followed by work in the UK and the west of Ireland to fuel further adventures for a number of years. Upon her return to NZ, Karen purchased a vet clinic in Dunedin and experienced the joys and hardships of management alongside clinical work. A move to Motueka was the start of NZ based locum work, including a stint in North West Tasmania. Karen then settled in the Wellington area and has been at the Central Hutt Vet Clinic since 2012. She has quite literally put down roots here by turning her front lawn into an orchard, and delights in growing most of the household fresh produce.
