After studying zoology in Edinburgh, I went to Glasgow and qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 2004. After working in Ayrshire and Yorkshire, I later settled in the North East and have been here for ten years.

I have a busy home life looking after Super Jeff the rabbit, Jimmy ginger cat and Tia my beautiful elderly spaniel.

Practice Manager

I joined vets4pets in 2014 as practice manager after returning from working overseas. I have a cheeky black cat called Drex who is a rescue cat from Cats Protection, he keeps me on my toes as he likes to bring me lots of fury presents daily.

I really enjoy the diversity of my role as each day is different looking after the operational side to the business. My favourite part of working here is watching the amazing work the team does looking after your animals.

I have lived in Portugal my whole life in a little place called Guimaes, where I studied at the universidade De Lisboa Faculdade De Medicina Veterinaria qualifying in 2016. It wasn’t until February 2017 I decided to move to England to expand my knowledge and skills in a small animal practice.

My main interests is in feline medicine. In my spare time I love reading horror books, but if I was to choose an author I love JK Rowling and her Harry Potter novels.
