Fernando MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon & Partner

I arrived in Harrogate 14 years ago to work as a Veterinary Surgeon. Five years ago I began my journey with Vets4Pets in Bury near Manchester and it was here I decided that I would like to become a Joint Venture Partner.

Since then I spent my time working at Vets4Pets Harrogate Hookstone, Vets4pets Preston Capitol, Vets4Pets Lytham and Vets4Pets Preston surgeries. Whilst working at Harrogate Hookstone I met Leigh-Anne who became a good friend and supported my aspiration to become a Joint Venture Partner.

So when I was offered the opportunity to be a JVP at Pets at Home at the brand new, purpose-built Vets4Pets Harrogate New Park surgery, I seized the opportunity with all my energy and enthusiasm. I'm really enjoying working with all the team at Vets4Pets New Park and Pets at Home Harrogate and love seeing new and old clients and their pets.

Sharon

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I qualified in 2006 as a veterinary nurse and I have worked in various roles in the veterinary practice from student, to head nurse to practice manager.

I love the variety, no day is the same! I have recently joined the team here in Harrogate New Park after moving back up to Yorkshire from Essex. I also worked for a Vets4Pets in Essex but due to my husband's job we re-located back to Yorkshire, where we are from originally.

I enjoy all aspects of nursing, from meeting clients and their pets to nursing the animals whilst they are here with us. I am married and we have a little boy called Zachary as well as a Jack Russell Cross called Re-Org.

Student Veterinary Nurse

I joined Vets4Pets in July 2016 as the new Student Veterinary Nurse to enable me to complete my degree at Askham Bryan College. 

I have worked with animals as a volunteer in both veterinary practices and farms for a couple of years before starting at Vets4Pets. I currently have a 12 year old cat called Skip but have had a range of animals throughout my life.

Amelia

Veterinary Care Assistant & Receptionist

My dream of working with animals started from a very young age. I have a few years experience working on dairy farms but my passion has always been to work in a veterinary practice which lead me to Vets4Pets Harrogate New Park. I joined the Vets4Pets New Park team back in September 2015 as a receptionist.

 After a couple of months as a receptionist and after watching the nurses and the vets doing operations and looking after patients I soon realised I also wanted to be a veterinary care assistant and with the amazing support of the team at New Park this became possible. 

In my normal working week I work as a Veterinary Care Assistant but if any of the reception staff are away I step in and take on their role until they are back. My family and I own an assortment of animals including horses, sheep, cat, dogs, chickens, guinea pigs, hamster and fish. Safe to say we love our animals.

Carlette

Veterinary Care Assistant & Receptionist

I was born and raised in South Africa. Working in the hospitality industry meant that we moved a lot so when an opportunity to move to England presented itself in 2006 my husband and I took a massive leap of faith and relocated.

I’ve lived in Harrogate for over 3 years now and love the people and the breathtaking Yorkshire countryside. I have three beautiful children aged 21, 16 and 12. We have a 3 year old dog called Rocco and a 7 year old rabbit called Patchy. When I’m not working or being a Mum taxi I’m out walking with Rocco. Joining Vets4Pets New Park in August 2016 has given me the opportunity to work with an amazing team and meet new people and their fantastic pets.

Veterinary Care Assistant, Cat Advocate & Receptionist 

I graduated from Lancaster University with a history and education studies degree, but soon realised when I started working at a local boarding kennels and cattery, that my real passion was for working with animals. I worked there for almost ten years, then my ambition became working in veterinary practice.

I have now worked for Vets4Pets for 12 years. I love all aspects of my job, including working with a lovely team of colleagues, seeing clients and their amazing pets. I am married and have two cats, Pilot and Ollie.

Karen

Head Receptionist

I began working for V4P in January 2014 where I worked for Leigh-Anne at the Hookstone Park Surgery. I transferred to Harrogate New Park when it opened as it was closer to home and the opening of a new surgery was an exciting new challenge. 

I became head receptionist in April 2016. I had previously worked for Dogs Trust at the Leeds rehoming centre, and at the Adoption Advice office inside Pets At home Birstall, Leeds. I have a passion for dogs and love working with them. 

Before Dogs trust I worked in retail for many years and ran a business designing and making wedding dresses. I love working here, we have a fab team and we love meeting all the new clients and their pets. At home I have a 2 year old Chihuahua called Laika.

Julia

Receptionist

I was made redundant in Sept 14 after working in the optical industry for over 20 years and was wondering what to do next. I have always had a soft spot for animals and over the years we have had a various assortment, four legs, two legs and gills. I joined the Vets4Pets team in June 2015 and have been here ever since.

I think we have a great team and i love working with my colleagues plus, it’s a huge bonus when we get to cuddle the puppies and kittens and see how much they have grown in-between their visits, I also like to say hello to our regular customers and their animals that come to see us. At home I have one dog Ruby, and two cats Turbo and Purdy. I adopted Purdy from the surgery here after she was brought in as a stray kitten in September of last year, Needless to say I’m now banned from adopting any more animals.
