Dr Elise Anderson BVSc (Hons)
Dr Elise Anderson graduated with honours from the University of Melbourne in 2003. Over the last 20 years she has practiced as a veterinarian in a wide range of clinical settings, including mixed and small animal practice, and animal welfare, both here in Australia and in the UK. Most of her life has been spent living and working in rural and regional communities, and she has experienced first hand the threat that climate change poses to the animals and people in these areas. Elise's work with Vets for Climate Action enables her to combine her professional life as a vet with her deep personal concern about climate change, and her firm belief and experience in the power of grassroots community advocacy as a vehicle for change. She lives with her family in a small town in north-east Victoria.
