Meet the team
Hi, I’m Jennifer but everyone calls me Jen and I am one of the new Partners. I grew up locally but went to the Royal Veterinary College in London. Since qualifying in 2014 I have come back up North and now live locally again. Currently I have no pets of my own but enjoy cat sitting when my parents go on holiday. Outside of work I love to go swimming, especially outside and enjoy walking/hiking with friends followed by a good pub meal. I look forward to meeting you and treating your fury companions.
Hi, I'm Zoe! I hail originally from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and graduated from Glasgow in 2016. Being a veterinarian has always been a childhood dream of mine and I feel very lucky to be able to do what I love as a job. I have one black cat called Skitty and a dog called Scampi with my partner and they are the best! My other passions are good food, sleeping in, music, and travelling the world.
I am Ruth Harrison (the Scottish one!)... the oldie goldie of the Practice. I have worked as a vet for over 30 years now! I live now in Leyland so a bit of a journey to work day and spend any spare time I have with my lovely husband, children and growing brood of grandchildren (feeling my age!). I play saxophone in a soul band and love gardening and spending time with my friends and family.
Hi, I’m Alison! I’m a local girl and it’s great to be back working near to home. I look forward to meeting you and your pets soon! I studied Bioveterinary Sciences at Liverpool University before heading up the Edinburgh University for my veterinary degree, where I graduated in 2017. I worked at another local practice for 3 years before moving to join the team at Bolton Vets4Pets in October 2020. When I’m not at work I can normally be found renovating my house with my fiancé, playing korfball or out for drinks with friends.
Hi I'm Niall, one of the vets here. I recently moved back home in the north from Bristol where I studied and worked. If I'm not meeting your lovely pets in a consultation then you might hear me singing away in the back of the practice during surgery. Outside of work I love music and training MMA at the gym. I can't wait to meet all your wonderful pets!
Hi, my name is Chris and I’m the head veterinary nurse here at Vets4Pets. I have 12 years in practice experience and I qualified in 2010 as a registered veterinary nurse. I did all my training in a veterinary hospital, post qualification I was the sole night nurse for an emergency service so I am experienced with patient care and A&E practice. I live with my two kittens Emmy and Alister, both have had one eye removed as babies so if you see a one eyed cat on someone’s shoulder when you visit, it will probably be one of mine.
Hi, my name is Miriam, I qualified as a registered veterinary nurse in 2014 then went back to university to gain a BSC Hons degree in veterinary nursing. I love being a veterinary nurse and caring for your pets here at Bolton Vets4Pets, I have been working here since 2011. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, I am married with 2 children, going to the gym and socialising with friends.
Hi I’m Karla one of the new Partner’s here at Bolton Vets4Pets!! I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2012 after gaining my degree at Myerscough College. After being a student nurse here 7 years ago I re-joined in 2018. I have gained further experience in both small animal practice and referral practice, as a Dermatology Nurse. I am lucky to be part of a great team and doing a job I enjoy.
Out of work I enjoy horse riding. I also have a Border terrier named Walter Ernest. I am looking forward to seeing how he grows up and taking him on many walks. Other passed times I enjoy are spending quality time with my family and friends.
I look forward to meeting you and your pets
Hi, I'm Megan. I studied Veterinary Nursing and Practice Management at Harper Adams University College, graduating in 2010. Since then I have worked for several other local practices before joining Vet4Pets in August 2018.Every day here is different, I really enjoy meeting all the pets and their owners.
I currently own a rabbit called Gary, who I rescued when he was brought in as a stray
Hey I’m Lauren, a recently qualified RVN! Vets4Pets has been my second home for the past three years now, after initially completing my university placements here. I absolutely love being a part of this amazing team and being able to care for lots of fur babies every day. However, I have to make sure I reassure my pets Bruce (Jack Tzu), Angel and Rosie (kitties) when I return home that they will always be my favourites! In my spare time I enjoy thrifting, sewing, painting and of course cuddling my lovely animals. I look forward to meeting and caring for many more of your fur babies! :)
Can’t wait to meet you and your fur babies.
Hello, I’m Louise – Bolton’s appointed practice Manager and non clinical JVP/practice owner. I joined the team as a receptionist in 2015 with qualifications in animal welfare and behaviour. As an ex educational ranger I love all creatures great and small, but have a particular soft spot for reptiles and insects; at one point housing over 60 varieties from giant snails to cockroaches and more. Since joining V4P my menagerie has downsized to two cats and couple of Giant African Snails. Although there is a dog shaped hole in my life waiting to be filled. I just need to convince my partner that we need one too! I look forward to chatting with our clients old and new very soon.
Hello, I’m Caroline one of the receptionists at Bolton Vets4Pets. I joined the family in April 2015, and have been making my way through my ANA (Animal Nursing Assistant) course for the last 12 months. When I’m not on front desk you’ll usually find me at home painting something, outdoors on a long walk or binge watching T.V shows with my husband. I started out here with two male cats, Nim and Roy but it didn’t take long for me to end up with a third addition. Her name is Dot and she was brought to the practice after being fished out of a bin by an RSPCA officer at just a few weeks old. She settled in nicely and the boys are loving having a little sister. Now we have another addition called Hilda. My favourite thing about working in the practice has to be the people. Our clients are fantastic and the Puppy and Kitten Cuddles are always a bonus too. Look forward to seeing you soon.
Hi my name is Julie and I am one of the receptionists here. I joined the Vets4Pets family in September 2015 working two days a week. My nickname is “Ju’s brews” as I do like a nice coffee to keep me going being one of the older team members! I love working here with the team, as I have always loved animals and really enjoy meeting our lovely clients and cuddling their pets. My family consists of 4 cats and my human family are a very patient husband and a daughter who is cat crazy like me.
Hello there, I’m Karis. I joined this wonderful team in October 2021. I’ve spent the whole of my life loving animals from learning all I can, working with them and owning them, so much so I am a fur mum to anything from fur to scales. When I’m not working or with the fur children you will find me painting, wood burning or finding wildlife to take a photo of while out walking with my husband. I look forward to seeing you and your fur family.
My name is Ashley and I'm one of the newest Client Care Advisors here at Bolton Vets4Pets. I joined the practice in April 2022, and it has been delightful to be a part of this incredible team so far. I've always been a passionate about working with and caring for animals, and I've enjoyed having all sorts of companions growing up, from small furries to big furries, to fish and stick insects!
