Our Presenter - Dr Hadley Willsallen

A farm kid with a passion for horses from Jugiong, Dr Hadley Willsallen graduated from Sydney University in 2003 and embarked on an equine career.  During an internship at Agnes Banks Equine Clinic she realised that horse surgery was the are of veterinary science that she loved. Whilst searching for a program she expanded her equine and surgical experience at Canberra Equine Hospital (1year) and Goulburn Valley Equine Hospital (3years) before starting an official American College Large Animal Surgical training program at Charles Sturt University in 2009 after passing her Australian College Membership Examination in Surgery of Horses.  She completed her American College examinations and requirements in 2014 and became a registered specialist in Equine Surgery in Australia.  Her first specialist position was working with Dr Nick Kannegieter as an ambulatory specialist equine surgeon.  In this role Hadley has the opportunity to work with veterinarians from all over Australia and operate at locations up the eastern regions of Australia and on the rare occasion on a grassy lawn near Darwin.  Hadley enjoys that her work allows her to travel and work with many teams of people in a variety of clinical settings.  She finds it particularly rewarding provide advice and education to veterinarians and nurses.
