Chiara Boardman

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Chiara qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2022, having previously worked at Fremantle Animal Hospital as our head receptionist, welcoming all the patients into the clinic while she finished her studies.  Chiara is now loving full time nursing, looking after your beloved pets.

She has always had a passion for animals and has been working and volunteering with rescue organisations since moving back to Perth, in 2019, after 12 years travelling the world as a circus performer.

Working and travelling with equestrian show, Cavalia for 5 years, gave Chiara extensive experience working alongside horses and gaining knowledge particularly regarding their behaviours.

Chiara has a particular interest in behaviour and physical rehabilitation and one day hopes to further her studies in these areas, in the meantime she gets her own hands-on experience with her rescue tripod Arlo. 

Chiara has introduced Puppy Pre-School to Fremantle Animal Hospital and is excited to start working with your new puppy building them into relaxed confident adult dogs.

Tracey Lycho

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Tracey qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2008 and worked in Sydney for 14 years before deciding to join us on this side of the country in mid 2023. Fremantle has since stolen her heart. She has a keen interest in anaesthetics and loves managing anaesthetic anomalies and complications. 

During her time as a vet nurse she also managed a successful mobile vet nurse service, obtained a bachelors degree in Marine Geoscience and lent a hand implementing infectious disease management protocols at a rescue facility in Bali.

In her down time Tracey enjoys spin classes, competitive pole dancing, early 00s metal music, and spoiling her two geriatric kitties as much as possible.
