Shownotes

Dr. Sara Baldey was raised in Northern Australia. She earned a Dual Bachelors Degree in Chemistry and Biochemistry as well as Post Graduate Honors in Organic Chemistry from Northern Territory University. She graduated with a veterinary degree from Murdoch University in 2004 and went into mixed animal practice in Victoria after graduation. She then transitioned into a small animal locum position near Melbourne.

In 2009, Dr. Baldey sustained a neck injury that resulted in years of debilitating pain. This experience led her to holistic medicine.

She was certified in acupuncture by IVAS in 2011, and afterwards became both a demonstrator and lecturer for the IVAS course. She earned her Cert IV TAE in 2012 and this allowed her to work with veterinary nurses in surgical training as well as veterinarians enrolled in acupuncture training.

Her current activities include performing acupuncture in a veterinary rehabilitation practice and working on the student services team at CIVT.


Please enjoy this conversation with Dr. Sara Baldey as we discuss her education, early years of employment, dealing with her cervical injury, and how that experience helped shape her relationship with her patients.
