Leah Wright

Emergency and Critical Care Resident

After graduating from the University of Melbourne in 2009, Leah spent four years working in mixed and small animal practice in the Northern Territory and country Victoria. She then completed a rotating internship at the University of Sydney where a love of emergency and critical care medicine was born. After taking 12 months out of clinical practice to volunteer in Borneo, Leah returned to Melbourne to join the emergency and critical care team at VRH in November 2015. Leah commenced an Emergency and Critical Care Residency under the supervision of Dr. Yenny Indrawairawan in 2017 and has recently published her first journal article on Lowland Copperhead snake envenomation in dogs. Leah has also completed a Masters in Conservation Medicine and has spent time training at Healesville Sanctuary during the completion of this degree. Leah’s interests include endocrine emergencies and transfusion medicine. Leah lives with her two cats, Puddy and Tully, and her Dalmatian Chayce. Chayce and Tully are also blood donors in emergencies!
