Meet the Team
Dr Fran Pagnacco
Fran qualified at Murdoch University in 1999. Other than 2 years working in the UK, she has spent the remaining years working in Perth in small animal practice. She loves cats and dogs equally, and gets a huge amount of joy from building a rapport with her clients and patients alike.
Fran had a dream to provide her local community with a family friendly vet practice - somewhere where people would enjoy coming, confident in the knowledge that they and their pet family will always be welcome and where they will always receive honest, personalized and professional veterinary care.
In 2011, this dream started to come true with Vogue Vets in Joondanna - in 2019, she expanded their services to include animal rehab & physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, traditional chinese medicine and traditional western medicine at Vogue Vets & Wellness Centre
Fran regularly updates her continuing professional development and has recently completed courses and received further Certificates in Canine Sports Medicine, Canine Aqua Therapies, Introduction to Canine Rehabilitation (University of Tennessee), Cruciate Rehabilitation, Therapeutic Handling for Canine Rehabilitation, Canine II: Physical Agents & Electrotherapeutic Modalities (University of Tennessee), Canine III: Therapeutic Exercise Prescription/Aquatic Therapy (University of Tennessee).
Fran has 2 handsome rescue cats and a beautiful Golden Retriever

Sarah is a 2001 Murdoch University Vet School Graduate and has spent her career working in small animal practice in rural Western Australia, the UK and Perth.
She joined us at Vogue Vets early in 2018, and has worked in a part time capacity with us whilst having two gorgeous daughters.
Sarah has a special interest in soft tissue surgery, and her favourite procedure is a prophylactic gastropexy to prevent gastric torsion in at risk breeds, having had 3 Great Danes herself.
When Sarah is not working, she enjoys the great outdoors and spending time with her partner and daughters
Dr Linda Bowden
Dr Linda joined our team at the end of 2019 having graduated from Murdoch University in 2015 and working in small animal and exotic animal practice in Perth and South Australia.
In 2019 Dr Linda achieved her memberships to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in the field of Medicine and Surgery of Unusual Pets. More recently, Dr Linda has furthered her studies in the management of liver and pancreatic illness.
Dr Linda has a love for all animals whether they be furry, scaly or feathered. She has a Jack Russell and a ferret. In her spare time Dr Linda enjoys her motorsport and spending time with her family and friends
Dr Jaime Olsen
We are fortunate to have Dr Jaime joining our team in September. Dr Jaime is originally from Townsville, and she graduated from the Veterinary School at James Cook University in Queensland in 2014.
Dr Jaime completed her Post Graduate Surgical Residency in 2015-2016 at PVS and achieved her memberships to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists in the field of Surgery in 2019. Her special interests are in performing more complex surgical procedures, including orthopaedics, and also in rehabilitation, as well as feline medicine.
Outside of work, Dr Jaime loves good food, wine and gardening. She is also a highly talented artist, and paints amazing pet portraits. Jaime has a cat called "Small Fry" and a cheeky bunny called "Claude Monet".
Courtney joined our practice late last year and has been in clinical practice for just over two years.
Courtney is cheerful with a warm and bubbly personality, and she is always the first in line to greet your pets whenever she is in the room. Her enthusiasm and passion for nursing are a great asset to our team, and her empathy and work ethic make her an invaluable member of the Vogue Vets team. She enjoys surgical nursing as well as nurse consults, and has recently done post graduate studies in hydrotherapy.
Her friendly and welcoming nature has been a great fit for our hydro patients, many of whom love their sessions so much that they can't run through the front door fast enough!
Courtney has a very cute senior doggy called Ziggy and a cheeky one year old cat called Nina.
Gaya (RVN) + Certified Small Animal Rehab Therapist
After a long awaited wait due to Covid-19 travel restrictions, Gaya joined us two months ago from Singapore.
Gaya's love and passion for animals started at a young age and she made her first step in an animal related career at the tender age of 13. She first started in the area of pet grooming and then decided to take things to the next level by coming to Perth to study and achieve a Cert III in Animal Studies, progressing onto a Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing.
Gaya quickly developed a keen interest in trying to better manage her patient's pain levels alongside a desire to minimize the need for medications, and she began her journey in alternative medicines. Gaya's committment to this form of pain management has seen her obtain further qualifications in Myofunctional Massage Therapy, a Diploma in Small Animal Physiotherapy in College of Animal Physiotherapy in London, and a Diploma in Small Animal Hydrotherapy in London.
With her many years of experience in the veterinary industry, as well as her additional skills in animal pain management, Gaya is an asset to our rehab practice here at Vogue Vets, and we look forward to helping her achieve her lifelong goals.
