Rebecca enjoys all aspects of her job even though it can be very messy at times.

The fast pace and challenge of emergencies are something she loves and the unpredictability of working with small and large animals.

Dr Jonique Diamond

Veterinarian (BScDVM)

Jonique graduated from Murdoch University in 2022 and soon after started at the Wheatbelt Vet in Wongan Hills and Dalwallinu.

Jonique has a keen interest in all animals, large and small but particularly loves seeing Equine cases and of course puppies!

When’s she not at the clinic, you may spot her in town or out and about with her Sharpie X dog Cruiser.

Denise Allan

Denise has been our receptionist in the Dalwallinu clinic since early 2015 and is very versatile and willing to learn what goes on out of the office which is great.

She has now begun her veterinary nursing studies.


Kristina Martin

Trainee Veterinary Nurse

Kristina is our resident veterinary nurse over at our Jurien Bay branch, she has been with us since November 2019.

She previously was employed as a Pharmacy assistant in Jurien Bay, so she is already very knowledgeable about medications and common treatments for humans and animals.

She loves spending time with her husband, two kids - making the most of the lifestyle that Jurien has to offer.

Miss Hannah Hasson

Hannah is a local who was raised on her family farm in Ballidu. 

She is currently studying a Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing at TAFE, just recently graduated in 2022 she is one of our newer employees.

From the beginning Hannah has quickly shown interest in all aspects of her job and will take on anything she is thrown. She likes the laboratory side of things and likes seeing the things you can’t see with the human eye.

Hannah loves to take her little naughty sausage dog Louie on her adventures.

Hannah will often be found on the hockey field or having a hit of tennis.

Paula Castle


I am originally from Bunbury where I spent most of my free time out on friend and family's farms or down at the local riding school, cause when I grew up all I wanted to do was work on a farm or become a mounted police officer hehehe. My Dad's family are farmers from down Alexandra Bridge so animals and farming are in the blood.

I left Bunbury when I was 18yr and moved to Perth for a bit. I then got the travel bug and moved to Qld for a year then the UK for 5 yrs.

After travelling, I settled back in Perth where I worked part-time in retail and raised my 3 boys. While raising my boys I fostered for the RSPCA as it was a great opportunity to have so many different animals come into our lives and loved to be able to care and rehabilitate them, so they could find there for ever homes.

My kids loved it as there was never a dull moment, they got to see, cuddle and learn about so many different animals. It was the best job ever. We did that for about 10 years. Now my boys are 21yr, 18yr & 16yr and currently live in Perth.

I have moved to Wongan Hills to be with my partner and was lucky enough to become the receptionist at Wheatbelt Vets, so I can continue to help animals and give them all the cuddles in the world.

Trainee Veterinary Nurse
