Rebekah was born and raised in Melbourne, and apart from a one year stint as an amateur backpacker, has not strayed far. She graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2011, and spent three years working in general practice in the inner suburbs, and one year working as an emergency and critical care veterinarian in a veterinary referral hospital. Her passion for the microscope redirected her to pathology, and she completed a Veterinary Clinical Pathology Residency at the University of Melbourne. She currently works as a clinical pathologist at ASAP labs in Melbourne. She is the proud mother of a sassy little Jack Russell Terrier called ‘Momo’.
