Dr Aimee Linton

Veterinarian and Trainer & Assessor

Aimee was born and educated in the UK. She graduated from Bristol Vet School in 2010 and completed a Bachelor of Science in Animal Behaviour and Welfare in 2008. After three years in rural mixed practice Aimee emigrated to Western Australia with her dog Megan in 2013. Aimee lived and worked as a vet in Geraldton and Broome before making the move to Perth to start work as an emergency and critical care vet at WAVES. Shortly after her arrival in Perth, Aimee began studying for her ANZCVS membership examinations in veterinary emergency and critical care and was awarded her MANZCVS(ECC) in 2018. Alongside her clinical work, Aimee sits on three animal ethics committees and has also completed her Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, at TAFE.

As a lecturer, Aimee can be found preparing for and giving lectures along with conducting practical classes and marking assessments. Aimee has a relaxed, friendly style of lecturing and likes to encourage discussion amongst her students whenever possible.

Aimee is passionate about both animal welfare and continued education and delights in sharing her knowledge and experience with her students. Aimee has a special interest in emergency and critical care medicine and particularly enjoys delivering this part of the nursing course. She strongly believes that we are all still learning in this industry and that all veterinary professionals have a responsibility to support and encourage their colleagues in our quest for the highest standards of patient care. Outside of work Aimee is a very proud wife and Mummy and is studying part-time for a diploma in counselling.

Aimee’s Qualifications:
