Meet the team

Emma Hall

Joint Venture Partner and Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from Liverpool Vet School in 2005 and since then I have worked solely in small animal practice in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and North Wales. When the opportunity came up to run my own practice in my own neighbourhood of Chester I jumped at the chance.

I love being a small animal vet and I am particularly passionate about surgery. I gained my RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (General Small Animal Surgery) in December 2012. I am also an RCVS listed Advanced Practitioner.

Outside of work I enjoy walking Timo (my border collie), doing DIY with my husband and going on holidays abroad, especially to wine-producing areas.

Emma Woodvine

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I studied at Harper Adams University where I graduated with an honours degree in Veterinary Nursing and practice management in 2014.

I grew up in Crewe but have since moved to Ellesmere Port where I live with my boyfriend and hamster, Pepper Potts. I also have a Westie called Murray who lives with my parents.

I enjoy cooking, going out for walks and collecting all things Harry Potter and Marvel related.



Lisa Maguire

Client Services Coordinator

I have always had a love for animals and growing up with a variety of pets and attending horse riding lessons when I was younger made my decision that working with animals would be the perfect job for me. I have 3 cats, chickens and fish.


I studied Animal Management at college and then went on to study BSc Animal Behaviour at Liverpool John Moores University. I have carried out a variety of work placements with domestic and exotic species working in kennels, catteries, dog groomers and zoos.


During university I completed studies on Ring Tailed Lemurs for my dissertation and I have also volunteered in the Butterfly House at Chester Zoo.

Jay Weston

Veterinary Care Assistant

I have moved from Pets At Home Chester Caldy where I have worked for the past 12 years to Vets4Pets Chester Caldy as a Veterinary Care Assistant. (So if my face looks familiar - that's probably why!)


I’ve always wanted to work with animals. I have a National Certificate in Animal Management and a Foundation Degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. I currently own two lovely cats Lexie and Maisie, and two very cute guinea pigs Simba and Fudge.


When I am not working I am busy with my two little boys. In the future I hope to further my career by training to become a Veterinary Nurse here at Vets4Pets.

Client Services Coordinator

I have recently joined Chester Caldy Vets4Pets as a Client Service Coordinator and am really enjoying working with such a friendly team.

It’s an interesting place to work, meeting the pets and their owners, and hopefully putting them at ease at what can sometimes be quite a stressful time for them. I love the funny names we all give to our pets; we've just adopted 'Steve' the Guinea Pig who has become the latest member of our family, along with Dogs Lola & Jazz, Cats Tom & Poppy, and Horses Scribbles & America!

Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from Barcelona Vet School in 2014. Since then I moved to the UK and I have been sharing my working time between small animals and wildlife animals all over the UK, from Hastings to Glasgow and now I have finally landed in Cheshire.

I dedicate most of my time working with British wildlife at RSPCA Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre, but I do love a cuddle from all your lovely pets one day a week.

 I am currently training for my RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (Zoological Medicine) so I am focusing on wildlife and exotic medicine, which is why I am very excited to be working at this practice with lots of rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, and rats. 

During my time off I enjoy hiking, traveling and visiting home (Majorca).


Laurie Appleton

Client Services Coordinator

I joined Vets4Pets in October 2017 and have been thoroughly enjoying learning the ropes! Prior to working here I was already a satisfied client at this practice. I have always found the staff to be friendly, empathetic and supportive – which is exactly what encouraged me to apply for the job!

It’s exciting getting to know the patients and their owners and there is always something interesting going on in the surgery, where every day is different.

I live locally with my two rabbits, Lily and Mopsy. I have always found the treatment that my pets have received here to be exceptional and I am now proud to be part of the Chester Caldy Team!

I have always been an animal lover and would often drive my mother mad when I was younger, with my eagerness to take in waifs and strays! I’m currently driving my fiancé up the wall as I’d really like to adopt a dog. Watch this space…

Tina Morris


I began my nursing career in 2005, I have always been happiest when around animals so working with animals was an obvious choice.

Before joining the Vets4Pets team here at Chester Caldy I had been working at a 24-hour small animal hospital in Cheshire, and prior to that in a practice in North Wales.

I enjoy all aspects of veterinary nursning, but I have a special interest in feline behaviour and I am the Cat Advocate for the practice.

I have two beautiful rescue cats at home, Bungle and Heidi.
