Dr Naomi Singleton

Originally from Somerset, England, Dr Naomi graduated from the University of Sydney. Keen to work in a coastal mixed practice she chose the lovely Ulladulla as her next home.


Naomi loves all aspects of veterinary medicine and enjoys dealing with all creatures great and small.


She is kept busy looking after her dog Kody, two children and loving husband. Any free time is spent doing something outdoorsy. 

Dr Rachel Nightingale

Dr Rachel graduated from the University of Sydney and started work at a mixed practice in Lismore, Northern NSW. At the start of 2018 she decided to trade the north coast for the south coast and moved to Ulladulla to join our team. Rachel is recognisable as the tallest of our vets, and so fittingly she has two tall (and spoilt) rescued greyhounds named JoJo and Flick, as well as a cat named Miso who she takes for walks.


Rachel has an interest in behaviour and wildlife but enjoys all aspects of the job. Rachel enjoys scuba diving, hiking, going to the beach and just about anything in the great outdoors.

Dr Simone Daley

"Professor" Simone graduated many moons ago and worked in various clinics in her early career, including here at Ulladulla for several years. She then left the vet world for a little while to take up high school teaching on the Far South Coast. However, like many of our staff, she made her way back to Ulladulla again to take a part-time position on our team. Simone likes medicine and building good relationships with her clients. In her spare time you'll find her at the beach walking, ocean swimming and surfing with her family and two dogs.
