Meet Our Team



Head honcho. what more can I say

Dr Julianne Grant

Veterinarian (BVSc)

Julie has been a resident in this fine city for 17 years moving here from Camden with a young family following her husband Robert's work. She started a mobile practice about 15 years ago to be able to fit in with the family committments. There were many rushed trips back from Bathurst after doing surgery at Stewart St Vets to get back to pick the kids up from School.

The mobile practice grew so much a decision needed to be made whether to close it down or open a full prctice in Lithgow. After much research and trepidation a position was found and the Bowenfels Vet Clinic came into being. We have grown from a 1 vet, 2 nurse practice to where we are today. Our first and foremost priority is the welfare of the animals followed by the emotional concerns of the owner but these never override the well being of the staff at the Bowenfels Vet Clinic

Julie has 3 children. Lachlan, Cameron and Rowena. None of them decided to follow in Mums footsteps. Must have been scared off after years of traipsing around with mum! Lachlan is a mining engineer, Cameron is a medical imager and Rowie is a journalist.

Louise Flynn

Louise has been a part of the team since the opening day of the Bowenfels Vet Clinic. Louise grew up in the area and is a caring and friendly person and and excellent nurse. She keeps the staff in line and the boss sane. Louise came on board as a 16yo work experience student fresh out  of Year 10 with a passion for veterinary nursing. Louise has grown with the practice and I don't know what we will do if she wasn't here. Louise married her life partner Mitch Flynn in October 2011 and has settled in Portand.
