Webinar Presenter - Dr Chalette Brown, BSc DVM MANZCVS (Veterinary Behaviour)


Originally from South Africa, Chalette has lived in South Australia now for over 17 years. She graduated from the first cohort of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine students of the University of Adelaide (Roseworthy Campus) in 2013.

Chalette’s keen interest in behaviour medicine started in veterinary school and has led her to completing further continuing education in the field, including becoming a member of the Australian New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists by examination in 2017. She was awarded the Robert Holmes award for outstanding achievement in the membership examination.

Chalette has worked in general practice and behaviour referral practice since graduation, including working for Dr. Kersti Seksel, a registered specialist in veterinary behaviour at the Sydney Animal Behaviour Services in 2016. Chalette serves as a guest lecturer at the University of Adelaide in behavioural medicine and is an examiner for the Membership examination for the Australian New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Veterinary Behaviour. Chalette is also a Fear Free Certified Professional, passionate about creating a low stress experience for all patients.

Outside of veterinary work she loves spending time with her husband and two beautiful daughters. Their family is completed by a cat, a dog and some fish too.
