Meet Our Team
Dr Louise Maplesden
  • BVSc

I graduated from Glasgow University in 2007 and worked in GP, mixed practice for 2 years before coming to Australia. I was only meant to stay a year, but have now been here for over a decade! I initially did some travel and locum work, then spent 8 years working in an emergency and critical care hospital in Adelaide. I have only recently moved to Tasmania, where my partner is from and have been lucky enough to join the team at Spreyton Vet services. I am loving Tasmania so far and looking forward to exploring further.

In my spare time, I love getting out for a bush walk, camping and watching live music.
