Meet Our Team

Yvette Macpherson

Microbiology Technician

Yvette Macpherson is a graduate of the university of Waikato with a Bachelor of Science (Tech) majoring in biology.

Yvette began her 20+ year career in Microbiology as a food and water Microbiology Technician with Food Scientific (A division of Alpha Scientific).  Having spent spare hours helping Alpha Scientific (later becoming Gribbles Veterinary) during peak seasons, an interest in veterinary diagnostics developed.

When the opportunity arose to begin work at NZVP (later becoming IDEXX) in 2004 Yvette took the chance and didn’t look back working her way up to team leader for Microbiology and Parasitology until leaving to begin work with Dr Scott McDougall and the team at Cognosco/ANEXA in November 2017.

The challenge and opportunity that research provides, together with the ability to provide accurate and prompt in-house veterinary diagnostics to ANEXA clients (and their animals) from our purpose-built lab in Morrinsville provide great job satisfaction for Yvette.

Yvette is an animal lover with 2 cats, 3 children and a husband in her menagerie.
