Mark Sayer

Dr. Mark Sayer

Practice Owner & Veterinarian

I graduated from Sydney University in 1983. After working in clinics around Sydney, I moved to Wagga and opened Berry Street Veterinary Hospital and Junee Vet Clinic. During the next 18 years, I and a small handful of dedicated nurses worked the two practices, including making weekly visits to outlying towns in order to see animals far away from vet hospitals.

Lisa Rapmund

General Manager

I'm Lisa, the General Manager of our Australian Veterinary Hospitals group. I take care of our practices and amazing team members in Wagga, Junee, Griffith, Temora, Cootamundra and Corowa.

I started working for Dr. Mark while I was at high school in the '90s and left in 2000 to embark on a few new adventures and start a family. In 2008 I returned in the role of the veterinary nurse and shortly after to the position I am in now.

Dr Anna

Dr. Anna Kuberczyk

Veterinarian (DVM)

Hello, I'm Dr Anna. I moved with my family to Australia from Poland in late 2022 to join the Federation team.

Becoming a veterinarian was my childhood dream. I knew my career from 3 years old and, when asked about my future job, have never answered anything else. Helping animals can be challenging but incredibly rewarding. It's a bit like solving a puzzle, but when the pieces begin to match, the patient gets better and the client breathes a sigh of relief it's the best feeling.

Dr Sharlet

Dr. Sharlet Rose John

Veterinarian (DVM)

Hello, I'm Dr Sharlet. I graduated from the College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Kerala, India in 1997. After working as a Government Veterinarian with Department of Animal Husbandry (which is the Indian version of the Department of Primary Industries) for 12 years, I moved to Australia with my family in 2010. I cleared the National Veterinary Exam with the Australasian Veterinary Board Councils (AVBC) in 2013. Since then I have been working with Mark at Kooringal Vets.

Kiri Westphalen

Dr. Kiri Westphalen

Veterinarian (DVM)

I graduated from Murdoch University in Perth. Since 2014 I have been working with Mark and a year later, I bought a small farm so that I could follow my other passion (vetting being the first); goats! After 3 kidding seasons, I have 115 beautiful Angora Goats and still rising. I’ve attended the World Buiatrics Conference in Cairns in 2014 to learn the latest on production animals with speakers from all over the world. Now I can better attend all our fantastic, farming clients. I am also Ovine Brucellosis Accredited, an APAV Vet and Hendra Virus Vaccine Accredited.

Sharni Dutton

Sharni Dutton

Practice Manager

I’m the Practice Manager and Vet Nurse at the Federation Vet Hospital, and have been working here for the past 7 years. I started as work experience when I was 14 and I guess I just never left- why would I? I received my Vet Certificate IV in Vet Nursing in 2017.

My love for animals and passion for their health has always been my biggest motivator. I believe that although saving one animal may not change the world, it will change the world for one animal.



Clinic Cat

Hi, I'm Mia! I'm the clinic cat here at Federation Vet Hospital. I spend most of my time being pampered by the team, snuggling with Practice Manager Sharni while she does her paperwork, checking in on our patients in their kennels, and running away from the Vet Nurses when they try to dress me up in outfits for the holidays.
