Natasha

Client Care Team

My name is Natasha. I am a retired human nurse and was looking for something where I could continue being in touch with people. I was so fortunate to be offered a place at Maidstone Vets4Pets where I come into regular contact with such lovely clients who have so much love for their pets. In addition the staff here are sooooo passionate about animals. We definitely need more love and appreciation like this in the world. I love the camaraderie, the respect and daily challenges my role brings. This role has taught me a great deal about the responsibility of pet ownership, and how we have to be advocates for our pets wellbeing by knowing them well and loving them well. I have had cats in the past, but I shall be adopting another cat soon. I get my cuddle fix from the pets that come to our surgery. Oooooh, we get lots of cuddles!

In my spare time I like to scrap book and crochet, I am a huge fan of musical theatre and I love cooking! I am known for always being smiley and bubbly, my nickname at home is Smiler, however at work I am extremely clumsy so get called Wolly! I love working at Vets4Pets because every day is different, I could be having a bad day but getting cuddles from all of the animals that come into our practice always puts a smile on my face, I wouldn't change it for the world.
