Julie Wills, BVSc
Vet & Practice Owner

Julie is from a farm in the back blocks of the King Country. She studied at Massey, graduated in 1988 and then started her career as a rural vet in Southland.


From there it was on to the UK, where she worked in a variety of practices gaining invaluable experience. Julie and Didier met in the UK, and worked and traveled the world extensively prior to returning to New Zealand in 1996.


Back in NZ, she joined Mill Rd in 1999 and the couple are now the owners of the clinic. Most of her veterinary time is spent consulting and with her considerable experience, there is not much she hasn't seen.


Multitasking as only a woman can; Julie divides her time between veterinary work and practice management, "farming" their small block and being a Mum to their two teenage boys!
