Hello I am Dr. Alexandra Gilmore and moved to Waiheke Island in 2014. I’m originally from Germany (I graduated in Germany 2004), but to combine my passion for traveling and veterinary I became a vet here in New Zealand. The path to come here wasn`t always easy, as I had to re-sit all my veterinary exams and fight a battle with New Zealand’s immigration office at the same time. Running a vet practice and a family- yes life has become very busy, but we just love what we do!

When I’m not working I enjoy going to the cinema or the gym, photography, reading, pottery, traveling or just simply walking the dog down at the beach or socializing with friends. You will also see our little son Eden keeping us on our toes.

Looking back at my life and what I´ve done with it so far, I think I can be pretty proud: working at a couple different companion animal clinics all over Germany, traveling the world to Australia, South Africa, India (where I also done some of my practical training and volunteer work), America, Europe (that’s an easy one, as I am from there!), writing my PHD in Brazil….to sit here now and watch the sun set over Waiheke Island…..isn’t really bad after all.
