Owner & Registered Veterinary Nurse
I have been working in the veterinary profession since 1998 and qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2004. Over the years, I've had the opportunity to work in a variety of veterinary practices ranging from referral clinics to dedicated emergency and critical care out of hours clinics.
Along with the various practices I have worked in, I have had the chance to work with small animals, cats, dogs and horses in the UK and exotic animals such as reptiles, parrots, falcons, cheetah's and lions whilst I worked in Dubai.
I joined the team at Vets4Pets Woking full time in November 2014 and became their Head Nurse in April 2015. One of my passions, within my profession is rehabilitation and physiotherapy. I’m helping to treat many patients with arthritis, post orthopaedic surgeries and acute injuries with my laser therapy clinics to aid in pain management and ensure these pets still lead a happy life.
I have 3 Japanese Shiba Inu dogs, Casper, Kimi and Rossi, 2 cats, Tink, whom I brought back from Dubai and is an Arabian Mau and Kieren who is a domestic short hair whom I took on as a rescue after he was involved in a road traffic accident, and last, but no means least, my hamster Tootsie.
I previously volunteered as a wolf handler at the UK Wolf Conservation Trust in Beenham, Reading for 5 years during my spare time which I loved and still follow them closely. I love all aspects of veterinary nursing, and have a true enthusiasm for my job, but I particularly enjoy my nurse consultations and meeting all your lovely pets!
