Meet Our Team


Krista Jenkins

Practice Owner (BVSc (Hons))

I graduated from the University of Sydney in 1991. I came to Forbes to work for Jan Slack-Smith in January 1992. I became a partner in the Forbes Vet Clinic in 1993 and have been here ever since. The Practice has certainly changed a lot in the time that I have been here, evolving from just Jan, myself and a part-time nurse in a small building down a back alley, to the current staff and premises that you see today.

It is great to be able to work with such a wide variety of animals - you never know what you are going to get from one day to the next. I especially enjoy orthopaedic surgeries and calvings.

Elle Schofield

Veterinary Practice Manager (Cert 4 in Veterinary Nursing, Cert 3 in Animal Studies)

I started my Certificate III in Animal Studies in 2009 at Forbes Vet Clinic, then went on to complete my Certificate IV in Vet Nursing in 2012. I have a passion for anaesthetics and small animal/cattle reproduction. I left Forbes at the start of 2013 to further my skills in specialist practices.

In 2015, I returned to Forbes to be the practice manager. I enjoy the challenge that it provides. 



(Cert 2 Animal Studies
Cert 4 Veterinary Nursing)

I commenced my training at the Forbes Veterinary Clinic in 2009 and graduated Certificate IV Veterinary Nursing in 2012. I love the farming lifestyle that I am very blessed to have and my beautiful dogs. I am not one to dress up my dogs but couldn't help putting the bow in my girl's fur just for a laugh for the website photo.

Coral McCann


I have lived here in Forbes for the past 8 years. In 2008 I was lucky enough to be offered the position as receptionist at the Forbes Vet Clinic. 

I enjoy the day to day interaction with our clients and being able to learn all about what takes place in a veterinary clinic. Most of all I love the puppy cuddles from all of our new puppies.
