St Bernards Road Vet
Dr Jennifer Trewren
B.V.Sc. (First Class Honours), MANZCVS (Small Animal Medicine), CMAVA
Jenni grew up in Brisbane, and moved to the Riverland in 1991, after graduating from University of Queensland - Bachelor of Veterinary Science with First Class Honours. She has lived and worked in the Riverland since then, although she is now commuting between Berri and Adelaide since purchasing St Bernards Road Veterinary Clinic in February 2015.

She completed post-graduate studies in 1996 when she was awarded Membership of the Australian College of Veterinary Science in Small Animal Medicine – a challenging undertaking with a new baby (Sarah) who was allergic to sleeping. Timothy joined the family in 1996, and after being a mum for a few years, she opened Jenni Trewren Veterinary Services in Berri in January 1999. The name of the business was changed to RivaPetz Pet Care in 2008.

She feels very privileged to have had the opportunity to provide veterinary care for so many wonderful Riverland pets over many years, and is looking forward to being able to do the same in Adelaide.

Her menagerie currently consists of; Matilda the Border Collie, Toffie the spoilt Chihuahua cross, Molly the very naughty Burmese cat, Harry & Henry the cockatiels, Silky Bantams and heaps of much loved Guinea Pigs with some really weird hairstyles and great personalities. Matilda, Toffie and Molly travel between the Riverland and Adelaide with Jenni every week.
Dr Ru Hui Chua
B.V.Sc, BVMS (Murdoch)
Ru joined the Veterinary team at St Bernard's Road Veterinary Clinic in October 2016.

Ru grew up in Singapore and moved to Adelaide to study in 2002. She graduated from Murdoch University in Western Australia in 2008 and moved back to Adelaide after graduation. She has worked in several Adelaide veterinary practices and hospitals and is very excited to be joining the team at St Bernard's Road Veterinary Clinic.

She is interested in surgery, ultrasound and acupuncture. She completed the Sydney CVE post graduate surgery course in 2010 and the IVAS acupuncture course in 2014.

Ru and her husband have 4 fur babies – 3 cats and 1 puppy. In her spare time, she loves cooking, baking, trying new food and cuisine, catching up on Asian dramas and singing karaoke.
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.

Caitlin Coates
Certificate 4 Veterinary Nurse
Being a Veterinary Nurse has been my career goal ever since I was a little girl. I have always had a passion for animals and have grown up with an array of pets. At home, I am owned by three beautiful Persians called Leedan, Mufdi and Linda.

I began my career in the Veterinary Industry in 2011 as an Animal Caretaker at AdelaideVet, I then went on to study a Certificate in Animal Studies and completed my Veterinary Nursing Certificate in 2015. Joined the team at St Bernards Road in March 2020 and am proud to be a part of such a dedicated team with high levels of compassion and standards of care. I look forward to meeting you and your furry family.

She owns many pets some from which have been rescued straight from the clinic. She has a small kitten called Peppa who was brought into the clinic as a stray kitten and is now part of Caitlin’s many pets. She also owns a dog called Sparky, another cat called Monty, two birds, a budgie and a cockatiel and a rabbit and guinea pig.
