Dr Jill Headon

(BVSc BVetBiol (Hon1))

I graduated from Charles Sturt University with a degree in Veterinary science in mid 2011.  Since then I have worked as a mixed animal practitioner in Cowra and also had an adventure over in Western Australia at Kalgoorlie doing mainly small animal and horse work.  I am originally from Rankins springs and moved back home to the farm at the same time this clinic opened.  My husband and I own a rescued small mixed breed (“mini kelpie”) dog named Dot and a chilled out working dog named Blue. We share a farm with my father running Angus cattle, sheep and crops.  I am interested in all aspects of veterinary science especially soft tissue surgery and anything to do with eyes. I also enjoy the challenge of mixed practice and like following up cases and seeing good outcomes for our clients.  My husband George and I have one small child (Ruby) and are due for number 2 in October!


Dr Lauren Jones

(Bsc (vetbio) BVSc )

I joined the team at Griffith Animal Hospital in mid-2016 after graduating from Charles Sturt University. I grew up on the Central Coast and loved seeing a wide variety of animals (including horses, cattle, dogs, cats, birds and alpacas!) and have wanted to be a vet ever since I was a toddler.

I enjoy seeing a wide variety of cases, am a member of the Equine Vets Association, Cattle Vets Association and the UPAV (Unusual Pets and Avian Veterinary Association). Whilst at University I worked closely with a Equine Reproductive team at a local stud and have a particular interest in Equine reproductive work.

I currently have pet chickens (and two chicks!) - including Gaston and Emily. I also have a horse called BillWill who I spend a lot of time with on my days off. 


Allie Cornell

Veterinarian (BVSc/BVetBiol(Hons))

After finishing my studies at Charles Sturt University in mid 2017, I joined the team at Griffith Animal Hospital. I love the opportunities here at GAH to be involved in a wide variety of cases, especially when I get to work with such a wonderful team of vets and nurses.

I have a broad range of interests in the field of Veterinary Science from production animal parasitology to small animal oncology and plenty in between!

I grew up in a little town in the Snowy Mountains and as a child dreamed about being a vet, since I found out what a vet was! 

I have one little old dog called Obi, and he and I are settling in well to life in Griffith!


Angela Quinlan

Veterinarian (BVSc BBioSc)

After graduating from James Cook University in 2015, I moved to Darwin where I worked at a small animal and equine clinic. During my time in Darwin, I gained a lot of experience in the medicine and surgery of both large and small animals, and saw a lot of interesting cases, such as crocodile bite wounds! I was also an on course veterinarian for the Darwin Thoroughbred races.

In January 2018, I embarked on an epic road trip with my dog (Chelsea), horse (Libby), two parrots (Oscar & Mango) and 10 chickens, to join my husband down here in Griffith. I was excited to join the team at Griffith Animal Hospital in February, and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the team, the clients, and their beautiful animals since I started.

While I enjoy most of the challenges this job throws at me, birds and horses are my passions, and I particularly enjoy equine dentistry, and any kind of soft tissue surgeries.
