Dr Caroline Romeo

Veterinary Director

Caroline earned her degree in Veterinary Science in 1999 from the University of Sydney. She developed a broad skill set in medicine, surgery and imaging over the next 15 years working in general practice. Caroline’s career took a pivotal turn in 2014 when she joined the Animal Referral and Emergency Centre. It was here that Caroline cultivated a deep passion for Emergency and Critical Care (ECC). In 2018, this dedication became recognised through her attainment of membership with the Australian New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care (VECC).

Caroline’s commitment to continuous learning is demonstrated by her in-depth study in radiology, ultrasound, neurology and ECC. Further contributing to the field of ECC, she has served as an examiner for the ANZCVS in VECC since 2021, and as of 2023, she holds the position of Head Subject Examiner for the ANCVS membership in VECC.

Caroline’s approach to veterinary care is not just about clinical expertise but also about empathy and understanding. She speaks passionately about the joy and fulfillment she derives from caring for her patients and the significance of supporting pet owners through all experiences with their pets.

Assuming the role of Veterinary Director at AREC in 2019, Caroline has been a steadfast embodiment of the centre’s foundational values: empathy, diligence, excellence, integrity, and professionalism. These principles are deeply integrated into the operational ethos of AREC, resonating with Caroline’s own beliefs and contributing to her longstanding affiliation with AREC.

Caroline places a strong emphasis on recognizing and nurturing the potential in every team member, fostering an environment conducive to individual growth. Her leadership style and her commitment to her team are reflective of her overall approach to veterinary care – one that is holistic, compassionate, and driven by a commitment to excellence.
