Meet the team
I qualified in South Africa in 2000 and, after initially working in mixed practice for a few years, decided to focus on small animals. I have worked in Warwickshire and Surrey, then in 2006 I moved to Companion Care in Chesterfield (now Vets4Pets Chesterfield Ravenside) and have been here ever since. In the first year we were flooded out which was not a great start, but with a brand new practice and a brilliant team of staff we soon got back on our feet. My main veterinary interests are small animal medicine, soft tissue surgery and diagnostic imaging. In my spare time I enjoy running, cycling, climbing and walking Doris and Hobbes. I live with my wife, daughter, two dogs and two kittens, Sid & Nancy.
I gained my qualification from Warsaw University of Life Sciences in Poland in 2020.
Ever since I was young I have always wanted to make a difference for animals thus I decided to become a veterinary surgeon. I am very passionate about medicine aspect of the profession with geriatrics, endocrinology and feline medicine being my main areas of interest. I am also very proud of being a certified ISFM Cat Friendly Veterinary Professional.
When not in practice I enjoy crafting, collecting scented candles, good crime TV shows and psychology books. I am an official cat mom of 5 fur babies - Waldek, Czesiu, Pszczółka, Onyx and Mimi.
Sinawo is a young veterinarian originally from South Africa. She graduated in 2021 then completed her CCS year in the Eastern parts of S.A. Sinawo enjoys all aspects of general practice but has a particular interest in soft tissue surgery.
In her free time, she enjoys running and exercising and also enjoys socialising with friends and family.
I qualified from Ankara University in 2021. Being able to provide animals better and healthier lives was a childhood dream of mine. So, I try to do my best for it every day.
I generally have an interest in all aspects of the profession but particularly I want to develop myself in neurological disorders and orthopaedics.
I have a tortoiseshell cat, my beloved Torti - just one of the kindest beings I am grateful for sharing my life with.
In my spare time, some of the things I enjoy are being with my loved ones, playing computer games, drawing and so on. Also, I like being surrounded by nature and cycling.
I have always worked in small animal first opinion practice. I enjoy nursing and being part of a wonderful team. My keen interests are looking after the patients who are hospitalised in our care and helping support their owners with understanding their pets needs.
I also love rehabilitation and physiotherapy for aiding older pets or those who have undergone surgery. I enjoy seeing owners with their pets in consults and giving advice. I find this rewarding and love the variety.
I love working for Vets4Pets, I find it very interesting and love working with animals. It is amazing to learn something new everyday and I'm particularly interested in animal behaviour.
I joined the team in October 2019 as a Student Veterinary Nurse and have since qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. Prior to this, I studied Animal Management/Care at College and Zoo Biology at University. Whilst at University, I spent 6 months in Vietnam studying Gibbons and Loris.
I have 2 rescue dogs, a Maltese and a Shih Tzu called Hugo and Sue. I also have 2 rescue cats called Fluff and Tuft and a bearded dragon.
In my spare time I enjoy walking the dogs, scuba diving, reading and gardening.
I joined the team in 2017 and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse May 2021. I left for a brief while in February 2022 to gain experience in Emergency and Critical Care but returned August 2022 as I just couldn’t stay away from such a brilliant practice and supportive team!
I have a keen interest in Feline Friendly Nursing and Medicine, Dental procedures and ECC.
I have a rescue dog named Ripley, and 3 cats, Pepper, Lola and Pixel. In my spare time I enjoy crafting, video games and exploring the Peak District.
I've always wanted to make a positive difference to pets. They are our family and to help them when they need it the most has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember.
I pursued my degree in Zoology, gaining more knowledge through fieldwork in Mallorca, studying mammals.
Advising people on how to keep the animals they love happy and healthy is what makes me happy, and being part of the Vets4pets team at Chesterfield does exactly that.
In my free time, I go on adventures with my miniature dachshund, Frankie.
I had been coming to Companion Care (now Vets4Pets Ravenside Chesterfield) as a client for many years and was thrilled when I was given the opportunity to join the team. It's a great place to work and I absolutely love my job, every day brings something new.
I was already a client at Companion Care (now Vets4Pets Ravenside Chesterfield) before I joined the team as a Client Care Advisor.
I have two cats called Chester and Marmaduke, in my spare time I enjoy walking and socialising.

My family and I have a cat, 3 aquariums and a corn snake and we all like hiking, cooking and our time at home looking after our pets
