Mary Bridge JVP Veterinary Surgeon Beverley

Mary Bridge

Veterinary Surgeon and Partner

I decided to be a vet aged 10 when the only career needing A-levels, which my parents said I had to do, in the book "Careers with Horses" was that of veterinary surgeons. Over time the desire to work with horses has lessened but the idea of being a vet has never changed.

Having attended Beverley High School for Girls and then Hull College of Further Education I attended the Royal Veterinary College in London. I graduated in 1989, so I have been qualified for 24 years.

My first job was in a large mixed practice based in Nottingham. I spent 6 years there before leaving to take a second degree at the University of Nottingham. To fund this I started doing locum work, which took me to some interesting places, including Guernsey and Alderney. I graduated in 1998 with a 2:1 in English studies and continued to locum until 2000 when I moved back to the Beverley area. I then worked for one of the local practices in Beverley, again doing mixed work. This included regular trips to the greyhound racing as track vet for the night and covered the Foot and Mouth epidemic in 2001 when I acted as a TVI.
In 2002 the urge to be my own boss sent me back to the world of locums. It has taken longer than I ever thought in would be but I'm nearly there! Over the past 11 years I have worked for a large range of practices which has given me a very wide range of experiences to draw on. 

I am now looking forward to the challenge of putting those experiences into practice.

Jo Caukwell

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Hello, I am Jo, I have always grown up with pets mainly horses and dogs. I started my veterinary career as an equine nurse and later moved into mixed practice and qualified. I enjoy all aspects of my nursing role - I have to wear many hats! I am vey lucky to have worked in many different practices including hospitals, referral, orthopaedics, emergency and critical care practices both permanently and as a locum which has ben very interesting and I have learned so much from this 'hands on' experience. However, it's nice to be back home in Beverley and starting a new venture.

Hi, my name's Lesley and I'm one of the Reception Team here at Beverley. I have always had a real passion for animals and my parents were very kind and allowed us a variety of pets during our childhood.

I'm the only one of the team without any veterinary experience, however, Mary thankfully gave me the opportunity to work here and everyone is very kind and offers me lots of help and advice, so, my knowledge is increasing by the day!!

Hi, my name is Sue and I am a member of the Reception Team at Vets4Pets Beverley. I have spent all my working life (with the exception of a career break to have my family) working at a number of vets. I started as a trainee nurse but now find I enjoy the reception side of the job. It is nice to chat to the clients and have a cuddle with all the pets that come in.
I have four cats, a Belgian cross German Shepherd and a baby German Shepherd, all of which keep me very busy when I am not here.
