I initially completed a degree in Zoology at Swansea University before undertaking a degree in veterinary medicine at The University of Edinburgh. I moved back to Wales and joined Vets4Pets in 2016.

I enjoy all aspects of clinical practice but am especially interested in medicine cases, especially feline.

My spare time is ruled by four cats – Angus, Enid, Bella and Bernard. When they allow I enjoy reading, gaming and running.

I’ve always been a massive animal lover and have known from a young age I wanted to work with animals. I have always been surrounded by a variety of animals growing up.

I started my nursing career in 2009 and qualified as a registered veterinary nurse (RVN) in 2013. I enjoy every aspect of my job especially the wide variety of patients and cases presented each day. I love nursing sick patients back to health and providing owners with advice about keeping their pet in tip top condition.

I have a particular interest in our feline patients and gained a certificate in feline friendly nursing in 2019. I am also interested in caring for neonates and have hand-reared a number of litters of kittens, puppies and even a litter of mice.

I currently own three cute cats named Chester, Colin the Creature and Titch and a beautiful Irish setter dog named Scarlett.

I love working for Vets 4 Pets Cardiff Newport Road, everyone working here is a true animal lover and has every patients’ best interest at heart.

I joined Vets4Pets in May 2017. I had previously had an 8 year career as a hairdresser but my love of animals made me decide on a career change.

I started as a receptionist and I am now working as a Veterinary Nursing Assistant with the aim of becoming a qualified Veterinary Nurse one day.

In my spare time I am usually found walking my two crazy dogs Bella the Beagle and Brody the Whippet or looking after my three cats.

I joined the Vets4Pets Newport Road team in September 2020 as a part time receptionist after working for PetsAtHome for four years.

I have a wide range of pets Including Roux the Border Collie, Jess the cat, Ash and Koda the Ferrets, two snails called Tofu and Beans and then an assortment of fishies.

I have a toddler, so my spare time is spent either with her or with our many gorgeous pets.

I have always loved animals so moving from PetsAtHome to the Vets has been a natural and perfect fit.
