Meet the Carlisle Vet Team

Lisa Kerr Carlisle JVP

Lisa Kerr        
MRCVS

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

My name is Lisa and I am the owner and Veterinary surgeon at Vets4Pets in Carlisle. I have wanted to be a vet as long as I can remember. It has been a lifelong dream of mine, nothing else was ever considered. I qualified as a vet from the Edinburgh Vet School in 2006 and I worked in mixed practice initially before moving on to work in an extremely busy small animal charity hospital in Newcastle upon Tyne for over 3 years. I wanted to open my practice in Carlisle as I love living in the area and we strive to offer a friendly, professional service with exceptional standards of care, to treat every pet as if it were our own. I love my job, it is my hobby not just my work and it always has and always will be an important part of my life. 

Outside of work socialising with friends and family is always high on the agenda, walking with my husband and dogs, keeping fit, playing and watching rugby and being at home with all my animals.

Catriona

Receptionist

My name is Catriona. I'm a receptionist at Vets4Pets Carlisle and have been working here since March 2017. I've wanted to work with animals for as long as I can remember. I graduated with a degree in Zoology from the University of Liverpool in 2015 and have been pursuing a career in animal care ever since. 

Since working at Vets4Pets I have achieved a certificate as a Pet Loss Support and Bereavement Councillor, so I am able to offer support to those clients that need it. I am also responsible for keeping our Facebook page up-to-date with engaging and informative posts. My favourite part of the job is helping to keep pets (and their owners) happy and healthy. 

I love getting to know all of our clients and working with such a fantastic team! Outside of work my free time is spent socialising and travelling with friends and exploring the Lake District with my two basset hounds, Maisie and Matilda.
