Meet the Cheadle Vet Team

Abigail Semal BVSc MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from Liverpool university in 1994, so have been a vet for 20 years now. My family have had a pet dog from before I was born and as a teenager I just decided being a vet was what I wanted to do. At university I decided I wanted a black Labrador and 4 years after leaving I finally got one, then I got another 6 years later. Immediately on leaving university I got 2 cats who lived an impressive 16 and 17&1/2 yrs, although unfortunately they are all now no longer with us. I have gained a lot of experience over the years and am dedicated to providing an excellent service to all my clients.

When not at work I enjoy meeting my friends for a nice meal out and walking my new dog, and of course relaxing! I also enjoy skiing and travelling to far flung places around the world, although it's been over a year since my last big trip now!

Marina Nikos

Practice Manager

Marina joined the team in 2015 and has brought with her a wealth of management experience. She has been around animals all her life and has a particular passion for dogs and horses. Having owned 4 Doberman Pinschers over the years, Marina has now downsized to a Miniature Pinscher named Twiggy with whom she is clearly smitten! Marina has ridden horses since the age of six and now shares her love of horses with her daughter who has been bitten equally hard by the equine bug!

Marina is currently studying towards her SQP qualification which, when completed, will entitle her to prescribe and/or supply certain veterinary medicines under the Veterinary Medicines Regulations. Marina is also our lead in the area of bereavement support for our clients.

Outside of work Marina is a passionate Manchester United supporter with her diary having to be checked regularly when trying to book time with her so she can check the match fixtures! She is also a keen lover of music and regularly attends concerts.

Charlotte is a “crazy cat lady” and loves anything feline related. She shares her home with her two cats Alfred and Clyde. She is currently studying towards an advanced certificate in feline behaviour and when complete will be offering cat behaviour consultations. Charlotte enjoys laboratory work which includes looking down the microscopes at creepy crawlies! She also has a keen interest in anaesthetics and very much enjoys the public facing role in consultations.

Shannon Crowe

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Shannon qualified in July 2018 after studying for 3 years at The Royal Veterinary College, and joined the team soon after.

Shannon has a soft spot for big dogs, as she lives with two of them; Murphy, a very bouncy Boxer who doesn’t act his age and Fergus, a lump of a Bullmastiff who will happily try to eat anything even if it can’t be classed as food.

She enjoys all aspects of nursing, but has a particular interest in surgical nursing, which involves spending time in theatre assisting vets in surgery.

Receptionist

Zoe is our veteran employee having been with the business since it opened in December 2012. Zoe loves meeting our clients and their pets and has a remarkable talent for recalling names! She needs only to meet you once and she is able to recall all details! Zoe loves the challenges the job brings and the fact that no day is ever the same. Out of work she enjoys spending time with her family and her dog, Tyson.

Michaela Miller

Receptionist

Kayla joined our team in March 2018 and with the advantage of having prior experience of veterinary reception work she hit the ground running and has not looked back since. She is known for her ‘light-bulb’ moments and is always suggesting ways in which we can improve our front-desk efficiency.

Kayla is mum to Lewis her son, Tigger the cat, and Bear her famously grumpy Shih Tzu. She is passionate about caring for animals, so much so that her aim is to become a veterinary nurse and she has already begun studying prior to her enrolment onto the RVN programme next year.

In her spare time Kayla enjoys socialising with friends and is a self-confessed ‘foodie’ – she loves to sample different cuisines and try out new restaurants. Kayla is also a keen gym-goer with a focus on high-intensity workouts.
