Meet the team
I qualified as a vet in 2011, and have been working in small animal practice since. For the last 5 years, I have been working as locum around Nottinghamshire, including covering holidays here at Sutton-in-Ashfield Vets4Pets. I finally decided it was time to settle down in one place again and took the job here as Head Veterinary Surgeon. I’ve brought lots of ideas with me from the many practices I’ve worked at, to ensure your pets will receive the best care possible! My main interests are anaesthesia, pain management and surgery.
I live with my husband, our 12 year old Kelpie, and 2 cats, and we have a 2 year old daughter who likes to boss us all around. We enjoy camping, hiking and travelling whenever we can.
Veterinary Surgeon & Joint Venture Partner

I am one of the practice partners here at Sutton in Ashfield Vets4Pets. I have worked for Vets4Pets since 2012, initially at Mansfield Vets4Pets before setting up my own practice here in Sutton in Ashfield in 2014. I was also a practice partner at Kirkby in Ashfield Vets4Pets for 19 months but I chose to leave my partnership there to concentrate solely on Sutton in Ashfield Vets4Pets. I have a Post Graduate Certificate in Exotic Animal Practice so I regularly treat exotic pets and I'm proud to say that our practice is a Gold accredited rabbit friendly practice as awarded by the RWAF. I also have particular interests in small animal medicine, cardiology and dermatology.
At home I have 4dogs, 2 cats and 4 rabbits. I've had various other pets over time including chickens, guinea pigs, hamsters, fish and caged birds. I am often seen with resident hedgehogs at my home that are either too small to hibernate, or are being rehabilitated due to illness.
In my spare time I enjoy walking the dogs, eating out and gardening
I graduated as a Veterinary Surgeon from the University of Nottingham in Summer 2020. But as a vet student I spent several weeks on placement here at Sutton in Ashfield and also spent time as a Veterinary Care Assistant, so you may have seen me around!
I am really enjoying all aspects of the job, but particularly enjoy surgery.
I live with my husband and my Cocker Spaniel called Ringo”
“Hi! My name is Juan Luis, and I come from Alicante, Spain. I studied veterinary medicine in Barcelona and have been working as a veterinary surgeon since I graduated in 2018. I have special interest in Exotic Pet Medicine and I have worked exclusively with exotic pets for about two and a half years, but I also love dogs and cats.
Back in Spain I have two beautiful senior dogs and a tortoise. I mostly like to spend my free time listening to or playing music, spending time with friends and travelling as much as I can!”
I qualified from Nottingham vet school, and have since been working as a small animal vet. I have a particular interest in internal medicine and clinical pathology, and the most rewarding part of my work getting a diagnosis in poorly pets.
I live with my partner and my two degus, Skye and Jura. Although I love all animals, I am definitely more of a cat person and I especially appreciate feline patients!
Head Veterinary Nurse & Joint Venture Partner

"I qualified as a Nurse in 2016 but I've been with Vets4Pets since 2011 working at various different practices. I joined Sutton in Ashfield Vets4Pets in 2018 as Head Nurse. I absolutely love this practice and the team that make it, so was over the moon when I was asked to become partner JVP in 2019 alongside Stephanie.
I love general Veterinary Nursing but I have a keen interest in inpatient care and Nurse consultations. Particularly weight management and dental health, but I help to run a variety of other clinics. I am also a trained Pet Health Counsellor. I absolutely love hedgehogs (and wildlife) and I'm often rehabilitating them!
At home, I have a wonderful little boy called Henry, 3 dogs (German Shepherd cross called Max, Belgium Shepherd called Marley and a Labradoodle called Barney) and two guinea pigs called Jaffa and Fudge."
"I joined the Vets4Pets team as a quailed RVN in 2019. I have a keen interest in anaesthesia, inpatient care and emergency and critical care, and I plan to start my certificate in emergency and critical care later this year.
I enjoy the nursing clinics we run, especially the weight loss clinics and senior pet clinics, and meeting you and your furry family.
At home I am kept very busy by my handsome tabby Maurice and my two gorgeous girls Harriett and Indie."
“I started working at Vets4Pets in November 2019. I completed my Veterinary Nursing training at my previous practice in Selston and studied at Bottle Green Training. I have a keen interest in exotics and enjoy that we see lots of exotics here at Sutton-in-Ashfield. I also enjoy doing anaesthetics, general inpatient care and emergency care. At home I live with my partner Amber, with our cat Patchy and dog Socks, who is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. I also enjoy gardening and own chickens and ducks on my allotment”

Since then I have been lucky enough to undertake a Veterinary Nursing apprenticeship, with the practice through, Bottle Green Training and will qualify as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in summer 2022.
I love working in general practice and like how varied work is from day to day but I do have particular interests in Emergency, critical and in-patient care. I also enjoy carrying out nurse consultations and being able to build a good relationship with our clients and their pets.
At home I have two cats, Tilly and Nacho, as well as a pony called Wiggles. In my spare time I like to go out competing with Wiggles, go hiking and spend weekends away camping.”
“I joined the Sutton in Ashfield Vets4Pets team in August 2019 as a member of reception, in February 2021 I changed roles to veterinary care assistant and in April I started my training to become a veterinary nurse.

At home me and my partner have a senior cat called Jack who we fostered from Feline and Wildlife Rescue Nottingham but quickly fell in love with him and ended up adopting him.”

“I have worked for Vets 4 Pets since December 2021, after working in the hospitality industry as a Chef Manager for 10 years. My ambition is to continuously improve Sutton in Ashfields practice experience for clients and their pets, while enhancing the working environment for our team. I have one Degu called Lotty who is very loving and mischievous. I also have a passion for baking which I do in my spare time.”
I joined team Vets4Pets Sutton-in-Ashfield back in September 2019 as a Client Care Advisor after graduating from University. I have adored animals since I can remember and have had a variety of different pets when I was younger but I do have to admit that I am dog obsessed, particularly Golden Retrievers! I have 3; Gunner, Lotty and Topper. I also have 2 rescue bunnies, Hovis-Loaf and Horlicks.
I’m always up for a fury snuggle but if you bring a Golden Retriever in to the practice, well, you had better prepare for cuddle chaos!
"I started working at vets 4 pets in July 2019 and have experienced all the highs and lows of the veterinary world. My favourite part of the job is the relationships you build up with longstanding owners and their pets, you get to be a small part of their life year after year. I love meeting new fur-babies and will absolutely want a cuddle. "
“I joined the Vets4Pets team in June 2021 and I have enjoyed meeting all of the clients their lovely pets!
I live with my husband and our two young children, also at home with us we have our two rescue pups Lulu & Phillip who we couldn't be without.
There is something new to learn everyday and I would love to improve and widen my knowledge in Veterinary care in the future.”
I joined Vets4Pets in January 2023 after a career change from Pharmacy dispenser to Client Care Advisor. I have always had a love for animals and did work as a dog groomer before I had children.
