Ashlin is from Holywood in Northern Ireland and joined the Gore team in 2019. Ashlin studied at Massey University gaining his Bachelor of Veterinary Science. He enjoys working at VetSouth because he believes the people here are just awesome. "It's the teamwork, comradery, the willingness to help and get the job done is the best part of working at VetSouth." Throwing himself into the community, he volunteers as a firefighter with the Gore Fire Brigade and plays competitive netball for the local men's team. And when he has spare time he enjoys tramping, skiing and travelling to new places.
