Tunbi is originally from Canberra and has always loved animals. Her passion to be a vet made her travel to Western Australia where she studied Veterinary Science at Murdoch University and graduated in 2010.
During Tunbi’s career as a veterinarian, she has always strived to improve her knowledge base and skill set through attending numerous veterinarian conferences, seminars, workshops and participating in online courses and voluntary externships. Her motivation to be a knowledgeable and compassionate vet is simple: She would want that type of vet for her own pets.
In 2012 she was awarded the post-nominal, Charted Member of the Australian Veterinary Association; for her commitment to continuing education. In 2014 she gained membership through examination, to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists, in Small Animal Medicine.
In 2015, Tunbi began a 2 year small animal medicine residency training program at Melbourne Veterinary specialist centre (MVSC). She then worked as a sole medicine registrar at the Animal Referral Hospital in Canberra, which increased her ability to work independently as a medicine clinician.
After much study, Tunbi was granted specialist registration in 2020.
Tunbi is interested in all aspects of internal medicine but has an affinity for infectious diseases, haematology and immunology. Her training during her residency, allowed her to gain much experience and confidence in abdominal ultrasound and basic echocardiography and thus ultrasonography is also another special interest of hers.
Tunbi Loves her puggle, Kai and both of them love eating food! She also loves musicals and proudly admits she is a logophile (lover of words).
