Adina Marchis PgCert DVM MRCVS

Has been working in veterinary practice for 5 years and started working with Burton Vets4Pets team in October 2015. She specially enjoys consults and talking with clients and meeting all their pets.


Adina did a one year junior scholarship training in referral settings and she is very close to gaining her certificate for a post graduate qualification in Diagnostic imaging. An imaging certificate gives her better understanding of radiology, xrays and ultrasounds which is a very good way to investigate diseases and get a better understanding of it. She particularly enjoys doing pregnancy scans


Outside work she loves spending time with her family and travelling.

Rachael Hutchinson Bsc(hons) A1 RVN

Head Nurse

Qualified in 2009 from the Royal Veterinary College London. Since joining the practice in 2014 I have gained my Clinical coach certificate, allowing me to train veterinary nurses, an area of my job role I thoroughly enjoy.


I have worked in both first opinion and referral hospitals, I enjoy working in theatre monitoring anaesthetics especially since the addition of our multi parameter monitor.


I have recently rehomed a senior cat from the cats protection called Obama who is naturally already ruling the house and has made himself comfortable..... with the exception of 'bring your pet to work day'.

Kerry Parker


Kerry has worked as a receptionist for Vets4Pets Burton since October 2015. She has worked in a customer facing role over 10 years as she previously trained as a Beauty Therapist. However she decided that her love of animals was too much and she pursued a career as a Veterinary Receptionist.


Her role is to meet and greet clients and to fuss all the kittens and puppies that come through the door.


When she’s not at work cuddling all the animals, Kerry likes to spend time with her husband, David and daughter, Mia. She also owns a dog named Rebel; No -one is sure of his breed but whatever he is, he is so cute and cuddly. Some would say spoilt but Kerry says loved.

Carriane Beard

Veterinary Receptionist

I have been a veterinary receptionist for the past 5 years and joined the team at Vets4Pets in May 2016 this year. I love my job and the challenges it brings.


I love all animals, but dogs will always have the edge! I will take any opportunity I can to fuss an older dog or steal a puppy for lots of cuddles!


In my spare time I spend as much time as I can with my own dog Tobi, a 7 year old working cocker spaniel. I also make glittered wine glasses, make origami book folds and sew. I am also passionate about a pop group called Take That!


We look forward to seeing you and your pets soon :)
