I joined the team at North Tyneside Vets4Pets just over 2 and a half years ago as Practice Manager to assist Frances with the day to day running of the practice. It was quite a change as prior to this I managed schools, but I had always longed to work with animals and was delighted to be given the opportunity to join such a fantastic team. My role has now evolved to also managing our new 2nd practice in Morpeth, and I am looking forward to the new challenge I love my job as it’s so varied and it's certainly not an office job. I get lots of cuddles from our inpatients and have even assisted with a few births which is absolutely fantastic.
I have two dogs; Marley who is my beloved Labradoodle who is 7 years old; and Bran the Jack Russell who I rescued from the RSPCA who is 1 year old. I am passionate about working with the homeless and I am incredibly fortunate that Frances has supported me in setting up a project called Newcastle Street Paws to vaccinate and provide flea and worming treatment for homeless animals in Newcastle. My spare time is spent with my husband and two grown-up girls. We especially love to take our touring caravan up the Northumbrian coast and enjoy long walks with our dogs on the many fantastic beaches. I also enjoy baking and regularly bring in cakes for the team to enjoy.
