Ben is one of the partners of Ascot Veterinary Surgery.  Graduating from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science in 1998, Ben initially began working in a mixed animal practice at Laidley, before moving to a large small animal hospital on the Southside of Brisbane for several years.  Six months in the UK saw the cold get the better of him before he returned to Australia to take up a position at the Ascot Veterinary Surgery.

In 2005, Ben completed his membership to the Australian College of Veterinary Surgeons focusing on internal medicine in dogs and cats.  Following this he completed the Accreditation Program for Australian Veterinarians and then the Australian Quarantine small animal export and accreditation program.

Ben is a former President of the Brisbane Veterinary Practitioners Group and Chartered Member of the Australian Veterinary Association.
