Meet Our Team


Bill Perry

After completeing my schooling in Brisbane, I studied Veterinary Science at the University of Queensland and graduated with honours. I worked at a number of Veterinary Clinics in both Western Australia and Queensland. In 1985 I was offered a position at Mackay Veterinary Surgery and the rest they say is history.


At Mackay Veterinary Surgery I met my wife, Dr Lindsey Evans, and over the following 25 years have raised two boys, along with numerous fury housemates, enjoying everything that Mackay life has had to offer. We have also enjoyed being involved in numerous community and sporting groups as well as being active long term members of the Australian Veterinary Association. I have had the opportunity to work alongside a fantastic group of veterinarians and veterinary Nurses, some of whom i still get to work with.


The last 30 years has seen a period of great change, with the hospital transitioning from a mixed practice clinic which treated horses, cattle, dogs and cats;  to become a purpose built facility dedicated to the treatment of small animals, ie. dogs, cats, birds and other small creatures. To facilitate this transition has come the necissity to stay up to date with the latest developments in veterinary care, including information about existing and new medical conditions, surgical techniques, diagnostics and treatments. This along with regular access to specialists, who visit the hospital as well as being available for referrals, has greatly improved the care available for our furry (and feathered) patients.


I love the opportunity to continually learn across all aspects of veterinary science, and enjoy the challenges that come with a general veterinary practice. I do have a special intrest in orthopaedic surgery, especially stifles (or knees) as well as general surgery and complex medical cases. The variety of work, the trust of our clients and the enjoyment of the patients we treat, along with the dedication of our veterinarians and especially our Veterinary Nurses, are all factors that contribute to the satisfaction and pleasure of my veterinary working life.

I am a born and bred Queenslander, growing up in Townsville and then Ingham. I have grown up with many different pets and have always had a passion for animals as far back as I can remember. I completed my Veterinary Science degree at James Cook University in Townsville. I have an interest in all areas of Veterinary Science with particular interest in small animals. I currently have a cat named Luna that I brought here with me to Mackay. In my spare time she enjoys being outdoors exploring the surrounding areas and spending time with family and friends.

I moved up to North Queensland to complete my Bachelor of Veterinary Science at James Cook University in Townsville and have never looked back. Early this year I moved to Mackay to start work at Mackay Veterinary Hospital. I have had a real passion for animals ever since I was a little girl and I pursued my passion as well as my love of medicine and became a veterinarian. I have a georgous cat called Louie and have recently got two puppies named Abbey and Eddy. I love them all dearly.

I originally grew up here in Mackay so I jumped at the chance to move back here to work. I always loved animals and had many of my own including cats, dogs, birds, horses, cattle, pigs you name it. I studied my Veterinary degree at James Cook University, in Townsville, graduating in 2014. I have a keen interest in all animals large and small, especially birds and other exotic animals. I would love to advance my knowledge further in avain medicine and surgery. In my free time I spend it with my partner, Jason and our pets; Rosie Rowe (Border Collie), Chuppachup (Rose Crowned Conure) and our other farm pets. I like to go fishing, riding the 4-wheeler and mostly just relaxing.

I am a part-time veterinarian at Mackay Veterinary Hospital and Mt Pleasant Veterinary Surgery. I wanted to become a vet since my teenage years because of a love of animals and the outdoors.

Areas of interest include: Opthalmology, skin disorders and canine and feline medicine. I first worked at Mackay Veterinary Hospital in 1994. During this time I enjoyed participating in triathlons. My husband Rob, and I left Mackay during 1998 to work and travel in the UK and Europe for 2 1/2 years where I did locum work. I now live in East Mackay with my husband and 3 beautiful daughters; Amber, Imogen and Gemma, our fox terrier Rosie and numerous guppies. In my spare time I like to go to the beach with my family, take Rosie the foxy for beach walk and swim some laps.

Michelle Lewis

I have worked for Pert, Perry & Evans Veterinary Surgeons for 26 years and i now spend most of my time at Mt pleasant Vet surgery. It’s both rewarding and very enjoyable to have vets and nurses that have the same passion for animals as myself.

My husband and I have a teenage daughter who loves animals as much as we do and spoils our cattle dog Cherokee far to much. We also have a budgie that I rescued and is now part of the family and never stops talking. When i'm not working or being a busy mum, I like to garden,shop or catch up with friends and family. Hope to see oyu all soon.

After 17 years working at the Mount Pleasant Vet Surgery, I said goodbye to the clinic and tried my hand at caring for the elderly, but after a 4 year break, I realised I missed all my animals and co-workers, so I have returned to Vet Nursing.

A life changing experience was when I travelled to Antarctica to folic among the whales and penguins. when im not nursing, I enjoy travelling, cross-stitch, reading or walking my 8 year old foxie 'Lady'.
