This is a story about a Scottish lass, who at the age of 22 came to Australia for an 18 month stint to have a crack at being a vet.
Little did she know she would meet Mr Right, have three children and two decades later, own and operate three veterinary clinics across the mid north of South Australia.
Dr Louise Lehmann is originally from a dairy farm in south-west Scotland. Her first pet was a horse called Mr Wellington,a much loved pony who ignited her passion to be a vet.
She was christened Helen, but don't call her that as she might cry! Now that's a funny story you'll hear in this episode.
Lou talks about the time she was discouraged to be a vet, the challenges facing the rural veterinary industry in Australia and her personal journey with breast cancer.
Lou’s energy and positivity is infectious and you won't want to stop listening to her delightful accent!
