Amy Snajdar
Practice Manager
I started my Nursing career in 2005 in Murray Bridge. I am very passionate about behaviour and decreasing anxiety in our pets on their visits to the vet. I started my first role in management in 2014 and love the challenges that the role brings. Even after 15 years in the industry, there is nothing I love more than cuddling and reassuring all of the patients!

Since starting at St Bernards Road in January 2020, I have been blown away by our amazing clients and the excellent standards of care that we bring to all of our patients!

I live at home with my 2 kitties (Oscar and Alf) and my 14 year old dog Maisey! I couldn’t imaging life without them!

Fun fact about me is that I lived in the jungle in Borneo for 7 months looking after six Sun Bears, one monkey, 3 dogs and 144 cats and teaching Vet Nursing skills to the locals! It was the experience of a life time.

Ashleigh Brennan

I have always been surrounded by animals and love being able to see them everyday at work. I enjoy working on reception, meeting and assisting clients and cuddling their fur babies. Although I currently don’t have any pets, my favourite breeds are Labradors and Golden Retrievers. In my spare time, I like going on road trips and walks, cooking and being with family and friends.

I have a certificate IV in Business Management and have started my certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing.

I joined the team at St Bernards Road in June 2020 and I am excited for all the possibilities for my future in this amazing industry. I’m looking forward to welcoming you and your pet

I am originally from the remote North West Coast of Tasmania where I grew up. I started my career with animals working & living at a Wildlife Park in Tasmania where I had the opportunity to hand raise three baby Tasmanian Devil Joeys. I left Tassie in the hopes to further my Veterinary Nursing Career at one of SA’s busiest Animal Hospitals which I had the fantastic opportunity to do so & become Certificate IV qualified in late December 2019. I decided to venture outside my comfort zone & apply for a new, exciting opportunity at St Bernards Veterinary Clinic in November 2020.
I have felt very welcome here & am very excited to be apart of the team. I look forward to getting to know you & your furry friends.
