Registered Veterinary Nurse
I have always had a love for animals and grew up with 2 Black Labradors, and a host of other small furries at home. We then got our Jack Russell Zack who had the best personality, unfortunately we had to say goodbye to him in April. My parents now only have the dopiest Black Labrador called Jake who we re-homed 6 years ago.
I started working with animals when I took a weekend job at the age of 16 at Harvesters Farm Kennels and Cattery. I was privileged to work there for 8 years. When the opportunity came to join a Veterinary practice as a Veterinary care assistant at a large busy practice I took the chance, that was over 6 years ago and I haven’t looked back. I first qualified as an ANA and then I started training as a Veterinary nurse in 2014. I recently qualified in August after a little break having my daughter Rae in 2016.
Rae is following in Mummy’s footsteps and becoming an animal lover. At 16 months old she is already learning how to look after her Auntie’s horse Flan, and enjoys riding on Poppy the pony.
We have a little cat called Luna at home, who I took home after she was bought into my last practice at 4 months old as a stray. I am not allowed to bring home any more on orders from the Husband!
I joined Vets4Pets Maldon in July and have been made to feel very welcome by all of the team and the clients so far. I really am enjoying being in a smaller practice and being part of the Vets4Pets family here at Maldon.
