Dr Penny Brown graduated from the University of Sydney with first class honours in 2011. During university she worked in specialist and referral practice as a nurse which helped to develop a keen interest in Oncology and cancer therapy in animals. She worked in mixed practice in the Hunter Valley after graduating and enjoyed the country lifestyle but returned to Sydney in 2013 for a rotating internship and then Oncology internship at SASH.
Penny is currently undertaking a residency in veterinary oncology and is a member of the Veterinary Cancer Society, the Australian Veterinary Association and regularly participates in continuing education talks to referring vets both in Sydney and in regional NSW. She has a keen interest in haematological cancers and recently published a paper on multiple myeloma in the Australian Veterinary Practitioner Journal.
Outside of work Penny enjoys spending time with her Border Collie “Lexie” and riding her spotted horse “PJ”, cooking, running and often studying.
