Patricia Carnovale said she was ‘stoked’ to learn she’d won the 2020 Fairfield City Women’s Day Award, “I feel honoured to be a recipient of such an award, I’ve been a local Fairfield girl all my life so it means a lot to be recognised,” she said.
Now in its second year the award recognises the professional innovation and talent of local women who inspire others and remind us that we can all play a part in our City’s success.
Ms Carnovale diligently worked her way to attaining a Bachelor of Veterinary Science degree, and worked in several veterinary hospitals in south west Sydney before establishing the Abbotsbury Veterinary Clinic in 2002, and hasn’t looked back since.
In between her demanding schedule, she has also managed to fit in mentoring others, working with rescue organisations such as the Cat Protection Society and The Mini Kitty Commune to develop de-sexing programs for stray cats, and set up the Tani Award scholarship at Cecil Hills High school.
Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone commended Ms Carnovale for her contribution to our City at the March Council Meeting, stating that her success is testament to her unwavering commitment and passion for animals and the community.
