Dr. Nick Page BVSc
Veterinary Surgeon

I have been a practicing veterinarian for over 20 years now. Although having been practically exposed to virtually all areas of veterinary clinical practice during my early career, my interests rapidly became narrowed. I have a passion for surgical diseases and treatment and throughout my career have amassed specific skills in more advanced surgical treatments and diagnostics associated with surgical diseases. I have always held a specific interest in equine medicine and surgery of sport and pleasure horses and would like to re-enact this interest in the near future. My particular species of interest are cats, dogs and horses. I hold administrative and clinical roles with Equestrian Sport New Zealand with a portfolio in the Endurance discipline. I love my job and am extremely passionate about it. There is nothing else that I would rather be doing with my life other than being a clinical veterinarian. This job challenges me and provokes me into self-improvement every day of my working life. I enjoy getting off the beaten track into the Third World and attempt to do this annually, usually involving wildlife within these adventures. I enjoy tramping and outdoors and wilderness within New Zealand, although more recently this has meant day trips! I still harbour fictitious dreams of re-invoking the adventure ski demon I was in my youth! I enjoy classical and jazz music, art and theatre also.

Dr. Andrew Wadsworth BVSc
Veterinary Surgeon

I joined the Rolleston Veterinary Services team in February 2019, after graduating from Massey university in 2018.

I grew up on a sheep and beef farm in Marlborough, and I have a strong interest in small animal surgery which I am looking forward to developing my skills in at RVS.

In my spare time, I enjoy SCUBA diving, hunting and fishing, and taking my border collie Sky, for runs at the river.

Nicky
Practice Manager

I have been a dedicated employee since 2003. Prior to working at RVS I spent 4 years working in the UK. I completed my Certificate in Veterinary Nursing at Christchurch Polytechnic followed by the Diploma in Veterinary Nursing from Otago Polytechnic.

Outside of work my time is spent with my two children and husband, and our yellow Labrador Eva.

Chantelle
Nurse

Hi, My name is Chantelle, I joined the RVS team in November 2019 whilst completing my Level 6 Diploma through Otago Polytechnic which I recently completed in October 2020. I grew up in a small town in Southland and have had a passion for animals both small and large from a young age. Away from work I enjoy taking my dog Blue on adventures with my partner, knitting, yoga and catching up with friends and family.

Indi
Nurse

I have been at Rolleston Vets since July this year,  having previously worked at two other clinics in the Canterbury region.  Originally from Daimond Harbour,  I moved to a high-country sheep and beef farm in Southland when I was ten and lived there until I left for university.  I graduated from my diploma in Veterinary Nursing in 2020, but I first studied my certificate in 2015 and am now working towards becoming a registered veterinary nurse.  I have two very gentle, obedient dogs, a collie and a Jack Russel, who love going on adventures or doing scavenger hunts.  Prior to working as a veterinary nurse I worked as a travel agent and have been to 14 countries.  My hobbies include creative writing, art, reading, photography, going on walks, traveling, finding new places to eat, and spending time with my friends.

Sacha
Nurse

Hi, I am Sacha.  I have been working for RVS since August 2021.  I completed my Diploma of veterinary nursing at Ara Institute of Canterbury in 2020.  When I’m not at work I can be found spending time with my two kids, partner and my pets.  I have a tortishell cat, Star and a Staffy cross called Iris.   I enjoy the outdoors, reading and baking.
