Meet the team
I graduated from Liverpool Vet School in 2005 and since then I have worked solely in small animal practice in Greater Manchester, Cheshire and North Wales. When the opportunity came up to run my own practice in my own neighbourhood of Chester I jumped at the chance. I love being a small animal vet and I am particularly passionate about surgery. I gained my RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (General Small Animal Surgery) in December 2012. I am also an RCVS listed Advanced Practitioner. Outside of work I provide food and shelter for my local wild hedgehog population, I enjoy running, hill walking, doing DIY with my husband and going on holidays abroad, especially to wine-producing areas.
I have worked in various roles at vets’ practices for the past 9 years and ultimately achieved my dream of becoming a veterinary surgeon when I graduated from the University of Liverpool School of Veterinary Science in 2020. I have been lucky enough to combine two of my main loves, travelling and animal care, by working with charities in India and Africa giving neutering and shelter medicine support where it is needed most. After experiencing the shelter medicine and conditions of the countries I have visited I feel so fortunate to be part of such a modern and professional practice here in the UK! I have a particular passion for small animal surgery and anaesthesia and I am currently studying towards a Postgraduate Certificate in Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care.
When I am not working, I love nothing more than spending time with my family, including our two whippets (Rupert and Henry) and Howard the tortoise. As well as travelling, skiing, scuba-diving, open water swimming and cycling.
I graduated from Liverpool Vet School in July 2020 mid global pandemic. When I’m not in my blue scrubs, I can be found playing netball, walking up big hills, drinking gin and spending time with my friends & family (not all at once). When I was younger I once took my guinea pig to the vet because I thought it had a lump- turns out it was its nipple, so please don’t be afraid to ask me a silly question! I have a gorgeous lurcher called Mabel. At work I am happiest when in surgery or talking about hearts and one day, I hope to explore this area of veterinary medicine further.
I have been a qualified vet for 10 years, started my career in mixed practice but soon realised that my passion was working with small animals and the variety I get from day to day. I officially joined the Chester Caldy team in September 2021 and work part time for the practice after having my little girl. Some of you may already recognise me from before September 2021 as I have worked for Emma as a locum on/off for 3 years or so. While I am not at work, I have a pretty full house with my husband, 2 step children, toddler and an ex racing greyhound called Luke.
I began my nursing career in 2005, I have always been happiest when around animals so working with animals was an obvious choice.
Before joining the Vets4Pets team here at Chester Caldy I had been working at a 24-hour small animal hospital in Cheshire, and prior to that in a practice in North Wales.
I enjoy all aspects of veterinary nursing, but I have a special interest in feline behaviour and I am the Cat Advocate for the practice.
I have two beautiful rescue cats at home, Bungle and Heidi.
I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2021. I spent the 2 years as a student nurse in a hospital environment before coming to Chester Caldy in 2020, to finish off my training.
I have a keen interest in behaviour and currently undertaking an Advanced Canine Behaviour course.
I always knew I wanted to work with animals from a child, originally small animal then after studying equine management and then going on to do a bsc(hons) in equine science. I wanted to go into equine nursing, until I got my own horse.
I love spending time with my family on days out and spending time with my pets (4 dogs and 1 cat) who without, life would be dull as they all keep us entertained with their personalities and little quirks.
I started out as an Auxiliary Nurse in 2011, and Qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2017. I mainly have worked in a Hospital Environment for most of my career, and since October 2017 worked as a referral nurse.
I came to Chester Caldy in October 2020 and took on the Practice Manager role since having my son in 2018. I love spending time with Family on days out and I have two Cheeky Cats that keep us all entertained too.
I started my nursing career in 2018 and qualified in 2021. I’ve always known I wanted to work with animals and spent time in different jobs involving animals before deciding to start my training as a veterinary nurse.
I have a keen interest in all things exotic, including small mammals, birds and reptiles. I enjoy rescuing and rehabilitating all types of wild birds and making sure they can go back to their homes in the wild.
I enjoy going for walks with my crazy border collie Otis, and spending time with my snake and rescue parrots. I also spend time bird ringing and helping out parrot rescue charities.
I’m one of the veterinary nursing assistants here at Chester Caldy Vets4pets and started working in June 2020. Previous to this I studied Animal Behaviour at Chester University and I’m currently studying towards a Veterinary Nursing Assistant qualification. You’ll find me mainly helping out the vets and nurses with the animals, although I do spend time helping our lovely clients on reception.
When I’m not in work I enjoy going on bike rides with my boyfriend, hiking and playing with my two cats Neelix and Mr Pickles.
I started working at Vets 4 Pets Chester Caldy in 2021 having never worked in veterinary before and I am so grateful to have discovered this industry, I have loved getting to know our customers and I’m genuinely passionate about supporting you and your pets as best I can. I have always adored being around animals, having worked previously in Pets at Home and spending a lot of time around animals growing up. Over the years I have had many different pets from hamsters and rabbits to budgies, but I currently have a cocker spaniel called Murphy who is my pride and joy! I love to spend my time outside of work taking him for long walks or cuddling on the sofa with him to watch a good movie
I started working here at Chester CaldyVets4Pets as a Client Care Advisor in January 2022 I’ve always loved animals growing up and went onto study animal behaviour and welfare locally. I worked as a veterinary receptionist elsewhere previously and couldn’t wait to start again. It’s a lovely place to work everybody here is so friendly and I have loved getting to know our clients and their beautiful pets. I live with my bearded dragon, Jager and am currently fostering a cat. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my friends. I look forward to welcoming you and your pets into our practice!
