Meet the team
Hello and Welcome to Vets4pets Hastings!
I have always wanted to be a vet, growing up with pets. At the age of 14, I spent the summer holiday on a long school trip around Europe and ever since I wanted to live in the UK.
I graduated in Bucharest-Romania in 2009 and I moved to the UK in the following year.
During my years of experience I worked for different practices in Kent and South London as a permanent and locum vet, but only Vets4Pets have won my heart. Elena and I became charmed by the small & cute town of Hastings and decided to move here in 2015.
I enjoy all aspects of working with small animals and I have a special interest in orthopaedics, especially in surgical correction of the knee joint.
With the help of my lovely colleagues - all of them proud pet owners, we provide the highest standard of care and we treat every patient as our own.
Being positioned on A21 and offering lots of free parking space, our surgery has all the latest technology, such as an Ultrasound scanner with Colour Doppler, digital X-Ray unit, ECG, most advanced general anaesthetic monitoring equipment and blood machines, large comfy and separated dog and cat wards being awarded the status of Friendly Clinic by the International Society of Feline Medicine.
I have graduated in Romania in 2019 and before that I was thrilled to do my student practice in Italy and Greece as I very much like to travel and learn about different cultures.
I have always loved animals with all my heart, yet this profession requires more than that and I get very motivated by the challenging part of it. Above all, my constant endeavour is to ensure the health and welfare of the animals commited to my care.
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, watching movies and hiking.
Ever since I can remember I wanted to be a vet as I always loved animals and had an interest in medicine. That dream finally came true when I graduated from vet school in Romania after 6 years of studying.
My goal is to help you give your pet the best life possible.
In my spare time I enjoy drawing, reading, horseback riding and exploring nature.
My preferred means of transportation is the bicycle, so you will often find me cycling up and down the hills of Hastings and St. Leonards.
I have wanted to work with animals since I was a child. I attended Hadlow College where I graduated with an Animal Management degree in 2011. I have previously worked as Animal Care Assistant with the RSPCA and I gained my Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) status through a diploma at Plumpton College.
I have a fiery ginger cat named Wilbur and I hope to rescue more animals in the future.
I like to spend my days off with family and friends
Before joining Vets4Pets Hastings I was a pet shop manager for almost 5 years. I am very much a people person, but I also have a huge passion for animals (specially small fluffies!), so I’m lucky to combine both sides on my everyday job.
In my spare time I love cooking, following speedway, watching football and I love being close to the seaside - so walking along the seafront is where you’ll find me on a nice day.
Previous to joining Vets4Pets Hastings, I worked with horses for 14 years in a busy riding school and livery yard. I have always been an animal lover and it has been my ambition to work in a small animal veterinary practice for a long time, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity to join the lovely team here!
I currently own a horse named Ollie and two rescue cats named Poppy (pictured) and Fonzy.
Outside of work I enjoy taking Ollie out for rides through the countryside and spending time with family and friends.
Since I could remember I’ve always wanted to work in the animal industry and thankfully I’ve got the opportunity to care for your animals in the best possible way.
During my free time I enjoy playing netball, spending time with my friends and family while being at the beach when it’s sunny.
I have two Chihuahuas, which are adorable. In the future I hope to have a mini farm with an abundant of animals.
After leaving school in 2019 I started working weekends at a livery yard with horses, alongside this I was at Morrison's too. However, I have always wanted to work in a veterinary practice, ever since I was little! Now here I am!
I have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 5 horses, 2 pigs and some chickens! So as you can tell I love all sorts of animals. In my spare time I like to go out and compete my horses:)
I've always been a massive animal lover, so despite studying music throughout college and university, I finally feel like I'm in the right place.
I've had some experience with an array of interesting animals including reptiles and birds of prey! But my heart definitely lies at home with my Bunny, Bilbo, and I'm hoping to introduce him to some more rabbit friends soon!
In my spare time, I enjoy lots of different hobbies with my partner, including writing and recording music, baking, reading, watching films and photography.
The Vets4Pets team is amazing here and I am so excited about being a part of it
I have loved animals since before I could walk and always dreamt of having a career helping those in need. Whilst away from work I enjoy walks through the countryside with my two excitable dogs and seeing friends.
Vets4Pets Hastings is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!
