Raewyn started her career in Morrinsville as a mixed practice veterinarian but moved to Tauranga and joined VetCare in May 2008. She has steadily built a strong rapport with patients and clients alike with her caring nature, sense of humour and strong motivation to resolve their health problems. Raewyn has a strong drive to learn on a day to day basis and has added knowledge and skills with additional study. She has recently completed a Master Degree with Merit and hopes to have her thesis published soon.

Raewyn is married to Nick Sygrove, a previous partner of VetCare and they have a son, Hunter and a daughter, Pia. They enjoy travel, movies and socialising with extended family and friends. Collectively, the Sygrove’s home is not complete without the mention of Lucca and Tito (the Italian Greyhounds), Cookie (the Devon Rex cat) and Nacho (the Maroon-bellied Conure). If daughter Pia had her way, there would be a longer list of family members including a python, pony and spider monkey (named “Wink!”).
