Eloise is Māori (indigenous people of New Zealand) through her mother and Canadian through her father and has been fortunate to have lived in both countries. Her current roles at Massey University School of Veterinary Science (New Zealand) are Associate Dean – Admission and Students, and senior lecturer in clinical pathology. She is looking forward to sharing her research interests around veterinary education, with particular focus on veterinary student selection, and diversity and indigeneity in the veterinary profession with everyone.
