Sunel grew up in the African desert climate of Namibia, which might account for the dryness of her humour, or drought thereof. Being from a family and community of people, who are almost compulsively drawn into horses and farming, she was soon made aware of the necessity of having a vet on hand in a country where your closest vet is usually 2 hours’ drive. Thus, she set off into the ‘unknown’ to study veterinary science at South Africa’s Onderstepoort Faculty (University of Pretoria). There she finished her studies with a special interest in Rural Veterinary Practice, which in South Africa usually involves general mixed practice, as found in rural communities, and wildlife (of the proper African variety).
Pets owned: Welsh Collie.
