Meet the team

Final Aberdeen JVPs on white New

John & Sheila Smith

Owners & Veterinary Surgeons

We both graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2010 and started out working in veterinary hospitals in England before returning home to work in and around Aberdeen for the past 4 years. 

Now we aim to combine our experiences to provide our patients with the best possible care in our own family practice.  

Between us we have a variety of interests. John is adept in the treatment and handling of feathery and scaly creatures along with his keen interest in surgery. Sheila enjoys all aspects of general practice especially getting to know the clients and their furry friends.  

Outside of work we can be found gardening, baking and doing DIY whilst entertaining our 2 young children (Isabelle & Oliver) and Molly the cat.

Gayle Marr

Senior Veterinary Nurse

I qualified as a nurse in 2006 and have since worked in a large mixed practice and a small charity hospital. During this time I have enjoyed working with new pet owners and the challenges facing elderly pets. I like to get to know owners and understand their needs.

In my spare time I keep fit riding my endurance horses and looking after my baby boy.

Emma Campbell

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I qualified and became a registered veterinary nurse at the end on 2015 and joined the team August 2016. I love all aspects of my job, especially the interaction with pets and their owners. I originally went to art school when I left school where I studied illustration and printmaking and still paint pet portraits in oil on canvas. Pictured with me is my ever faithful border collie, Bailey who loves to follow me everywhere.

Shannon Robson

Veterinary Care Assistant   

My name is Shannon and I am a veterinary care assistant at Vets4Pets Aberdeen. I have a great passion and respect for animals, and working with them has always been a dream of mine. I have Aspirations for my future, in respect to working with them at a different level but absolutely love my job. I have a keen interest in Rats and other small furries, although don’t have favourites! 

It’s great coming into work and greeting our clients and their pets and we get to make good bonds with them. 

I like to spend my spare time reading, sketching, socialising with friends but mostly I like to cuddle up with my cat for a good movie night.

Erin Fordyce


Hi I’m Erin, I joined the Vets4Pets team in March 2017 as a receptionist. I am very passionate about animals and pictured with me is my 8 year old Springer Spaniel X Collie, Angus. I am very lucky to have such a rewarding job and especially enjoy getting to meet little puppies and kittens and watching them grow up.


In my spare time I pick up extra shifts at a restaurant near home, I also enjoy relaxing with a good book and spending time with family and friends

Francesca Maria Lamb

Veterinary Surgeon

Hello! My name is Fran and I qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 2016 from Edinburgh University. After graduating I worked in a veterinary hospital south of Glasgow before moving home to Aberdeen. I am very enthusiastic about my job and am interested in all aspects of medicine and surgery. I like all species but have a particular soft spot for cats. Since joining Vets4Pets Aberdeen I also enjoy eating John and Sheila’s baking. In my free time I enjoy keeping fit. I play netball and run regularly but enjoy all outdoors activities.
