New Katherine Veterinary Officer

Figure 11: Dr Megan Pickering

The Livestock Biosecurity Branch welcomes Dr Megan Pickering to the team.

Megan is a long-term Katherine resident, having previously worked in private mixed practices in Katherine, Darwin and the UK since 1994, as well as a previous position with the Department of Primary Industries in 1999. Outside of work, Megan lives with her husband and three busy teenagers on a rural property, from which she enjoys an active lifestyle. She says she seems to spend a lot of money repairing and replacing mountain bikes, canoes, running shoes, camping equipment and First Aid supplies, but they have a great collection of memories and photographs!

Megan is looking forward to participating in disease investigations, herd health and surveillance work, and to visiting pastoral properties and establishing new relationships. She is based at the Katherine Research Station and is available for disease investigation call outs; Megan can be contacted on (08) 8973 9716 or 0437 52 7372.
