Dr Megan Bredhauer (nee Parker)
BVSc (Hons) PhD GAICD FAIM
Dr Megan owns and manages Northgate Veterinary Surgery and St Vincents Vets with husband Bernie; but usually works as a vet at St Vincents Vets.
Dr. Megan graduated from The University of Queensland with First Class Honours in 1991 and was awarded her PhD from The University of Queensland in 2000 for studies in Avian Medicine and Microbiology. Megan has worked in pet veterinary practices in both private and university sectors; in Canberra, Wagga, Brisbane and Redcliffe.
Megan was an academic based at University for most of her career; being the Director of Murdoch University’s Office of Continuing Veterinary Education from 1997 - 1999 designing numerous continuing Education courses for veterinarians and veterinary nurses. She then commenced work as Executive Officer of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in May 2002, becoming Chief Executive Officer between 2008 and 2013. In these roles she managed the domestic and international business, training and examination systems of the only specialist training College for veterinarians in Australia and New Zealand.
Megan then worked as a technical services veterinarian for animal health company Novartis (the makers of Sentinel, Interceptor, Atopica, and Onsior to name a few). This role was based in Sydney and after a few years commuting and working in a different timezone to HQ over the summer - Megan was glad to be based back in Brisbane and working alongside Bernie in the practice from 2015. From here Megan and Bernie purchased the Northgate Building, renovated it to the beautiful surgery it is; then set up St Vincents Vets from scratch - quite a busy few years.
Megan is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (2007) and a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Management (2008). She is passionate about learning and is constantly studying and talking to specialists about her cases. Her favourite areas are dentistry, dermatology, behaviour, pain management and the human/animal bond. In her down time Megan likes to stare at the ocean with her two Golden retrievers Roland and Winona.
