Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

I graduated from Berlin in 1994 then worked for 3 years in Germany as a farm vet, looking after cows, pigs, sheep and horses - as well as domestic pets - before moving to the UK to live. For the first 5 months here, I worked as a volunteer for both the PDSA and the RSPCA. I had to earn a living, so I worked again on farms, as well as looking after domestic pets in a Norfolk practice, before moving closer to London three years later. Since then I have specialised in treating small animals in London, Hertfordshire and more recently, in Bath. I joined Companion Care 8 months ago, impressed by what I had seen in surgeries as far apart as Harlow and Bristol. Since joining, I’ve been fortunate enough to work as a locum in several branches, mainly in the Home Counties. In every location, I’ve found dedicated professionals at every level, helping owners to do the best for their pets. When the Reading opportunity came up - I decided to go for it! I passionately believe in delivering the best possible veterinary care at affordable prices. Being a responsible owner is a big part of the joy of keeping a cherished pet. Outside of work, I enjoy spending my time with my family (which includes Tinkerbelle, my cat), travelling (with Tink, of course, where possible), photography and trying out Jamie Oliver recipes!

I worked at Pets at home for 4 years and decided that I wanted to progress my career to become a veterinary nurse. After being at the practice for a year I have made the steps to apply for a veterinary assistant course that will allow me to start as a trainee veterinary nurse next year. I enjoy interacting with our clients and our patients. I find it to be a very rewarding part of the job to have the trust from both owner and patient.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my partner and close family and friends. I also enjoy taking country walks and exploring new places with my partner.
