Lenka Soffer DVM MRCVS

Joint Venture Partner

Hello, my name is Lenka Soffer and I am the Joint Venture Partner of the Letchworth Practice. I graduated from the University of Veterinary Medicine and Pharmacology in Košice, Slovakia in 2010. After my graduation I moved to Israel where I lived and worked for five years.

I love working with small animals but if I had to pick one species to be my favourite it would be goats as my parents kept goats when I was a child!

When I am not working I love watching movies with my daughter, travelling and would love to try sky diving one day. I have three pets of my own; Bree the Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Bruno the Staffordshire bull terrier and Cous Cous the cat. !

Veterinary Surgeon

Hello my name is Ayal Soffer! I graduated from the University of Veterinary Medicine and Pharmacology in Košice, Slovakia in 2008. After working in a veterinary clinic I joined the army as a vet in 2010.

I have worked for Vets4Pets since Oct 2015 at Luton Gipsy Lane and have recently moved to the Letchworth practice to work on Mondays and Tuesdays. I also travel around the country working as a Locum Vet so get to experience working in a wide range of practices.

I have two dogs and a cat at home who I love. At work I have a particular interest in small animals. In my free time I love travelling, cooking and spending time with my family.

Rafaela Silva Gregorio DVM MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

Hello, my name is Rafaela Gregório! I am young vet, recently graduated from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Lisbon, in Portugal. I always wanted to start my career outside of Portugal and I am really happy to join the Vets4Pets in Letchworth, in 2018!

Being a Veterinarian is my dream job since I was 5. I always enjoyed being around animals and when I became a little older and went to college I found the deepest love for medicine… so veterinary medicine it’s actually the perfect combination. I love dogs and all kinds of animals, but I have a passion for cats.

At home, I have the silliest and cutest 5-year-old cat… her name is Sinapse and she is a total diva! Outside of work I enjoy watching movies and how they are made, reading and writing (I actually almost gave my parents a stroke when, at the age of 16, told them that I wanted to be a movie writer!). Artistic Roller skating is my beloved sport and I still like to practice it or coach it!

Adrienne Couch RVN

HeadVeterinary Nurse

I have been a Registered Veterinary Nurse since 2010. During that time I have worked both in general practices and at referral centres.

Prior to completing my veterinary nursing qualification I completed a degree in Animal Management and worked at a safari park, kennels and the college animal unit. I hope to eventually do conservation work abroad with Orangutans.

At home I live with my partner, our little girl Isla and our Border Terrier named Molly. In my spare time I love cuddling up at home with my family and spending time with my friends.

Jessica Johnson

Student Veterinary Nurse

I started working at the practice just after it opened as a work experience student whilst I completed my Extended Diploma in Animal Management at North Herts College. Since then I have progressed as a Veterinary Care Assistant and now I am studying at the College of Animal Welfare as a Student Veterinary Nurse. I have always wanted to work with animals so you could say this is my dream job!

I have four furry friends at home; Archie the whippet; Bonnie the Patterdale Terrier; Remus the jack Russell and Missy the lurcher. I adore sighthounds, they are so beautiful! I also have chickens and quail!

I can’t wait to finish studying and become a Registered Veterinary Nurse, and I hope one day to be able to do conservation work with orangutans. In my spare time I love going to car shows and spending time with my friends.

Charlotte West

Head Receptionist

I have worked here at Vets4Pets Letchworth since June 2016, starting as a receptionist and promoted to head of reception in 2017.

I started working in vets from the age of 15 when I did work experience at school, and went on to study animal care, management and nursing at Shuttleworth College for three years.

I live at home with my partner, my son George, my naughty springer spaniel Gracie and our cat Maggie! I took some time out of working with animals and worked as an estate agent for a while but I’m now back doing what I love and love working with the team here!

Gina Freeman

Receptionist

Being one of the receptionists I think I have the best job in the world – meeting all sorts of animals and of course their owners! I have always been an animal type of person.

At home we have a beautiful kitten called Mr Cole who is thoroughly spoilt, in the past we have had a dog, cats and hamsters too.

So when you are passing by please pop in and say hello, it would be lovely to meet you and your pet!
