Crisman, Dr Robin
I rise today to congratulate Dr Robin Crisman of the Somersby Animal Hospital for receiving a Practitioner of the Year award at the Australian Veterinary Society's ASAV conference earlier this month. Dr Crisman received the prestigious award for her outstanding service to the veterinary profession and the public, for her academic qualifications, standard of practice, professional profile and altruism. Dr Crisman has been practising veterinary medicine for over 25 years, during which time she has managed smaller-animal emergencies as well as routine healthcare check-ups for household pets, farm animals and racehorses. When Robin isn't working at the Somersby Animal Hospital, she's providing veterinary services for race days right across New South Wales and veterinary care to wildlife at both the Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park in Calga and the Australian Reptile Park in Somersby on the Central Coast. Robin's passion for her role as the head veterinarian and director at the Somersby Animal Hospital is a true asset to our community, and her humility is an example to all of us.
The Somersby Animal Hospital is one of many great veterinary services in my electorate which provides care and treatment for pets and Australian wildlife, so I take this opportunity to thank also the Walkabout Wildlife Park and the Australian Reptile Park for the fantastic work they do locally in ensuring our beautiful native wildlife is conserved. I congratulate again Dr Robin Crisman on receiving this prestigious industry award.
