Head Nurse

I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2013, after working in practice since leaving school in 2008. 

Before starting at Waterlooville Vets4Pets, I was lucky enough to work at Fitzpatrick Referrals. I enjoy anaesthesia and surgery based tasks. 

I also enjoy going to the gym and on dog walks with my Pug X Jack Russell Terrrier, Tula.

You might find Mel a familiar face, as she is also the Reception Manager at Companion Care Vets Portsmouth, one of our sister surgeries. Mel started there in 2007 as a weekend receptionist, moved onto the nursing team after a couple of years, and qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2013. 

Shortly after qualifying, Mel became the Reception Manager and has enjoyed every minute of it all. 

When Mel isn't working, she enjoys spending time with her twin daughters, pottering around in the garden and looking after her (currently) three cats.

Kirsti has a lot of years of customer service experience and is constantly expanding her knowledge; currently Kirsti is completing an NVQ in Customer Service. 

When not studying, Kirsti spends her time with her two children, husband and a border collie, called Loki.... can you guess why he's called Loki!

Jill looks forward to meeting all the new patients, particularly having cuddles with all the new puppies and kittens. 

At home Jill has lived with hamsters, bearded dragons, guinea pigs, rabbits, cats, a chameleon and a canary, oh and not fogetting her daughter, Hannah, a veterinary nurse. But we must add they didn't all live together at the same time!
