Corrinne Choo

Mother Hen of Bedok Clinic

Corrinne joined Island Veterinary Clinic in 2013. She is a successful dog trainer with a string of videos of her dog. Having come from an entirely different background in fashion, she decided early on that her real passion lies in working with animals. The recipe for her success is lots of patience, persistence and understanding of their psychology. Her menagerie includes 2 Labradors, a mini Schnauzer and 2 cats.

Apple Neo

Nurse / Receptionist

Apple joined Island Veterinary Clinic in April 2011 as a receptionist and vet technician. Prior to this, she gained her experience working in other vet clinics in Singapore. She will be starting her Veterinary Certificate 2 in July, a correspondence course from Australia that allows students to pursue a diploma in veterinary nursing. Although she initially graduated with a diploma in IT service management and had tried her hand at different jobs, she decided to pursue her passion for animal care in the end. What makes her love this work so much is an animal’s unconditional love towards humans. Although some may be seen as aggressive, she believes there’s always a reason behind their behaviour and likes to try understanding their psyche in order to help them recover and relieve their suffering.
