Meet the team
I qualified from Glasgow Vet School in 2003. I then worked for 9 years in Northern England until the opportunity to work in Bearsden Vets4Pets arose. I’ve been with Bearsden Vets4Pets since it opened in 2012 and I’m really proud of the way it has developed into the fantastic practice it is today with such a brilliant team. I have a strong interest in diagnostic imaging especially ultrasound and enjoy soft tissue surgery.
Being a vet is not just a job, it’s a way of life and I love that. I will never tire of meeting a new puppy or kitten and I will always take joy in making a sick animal feel better.
When I’m not at work my two young sons keep me pretty busy!
Born and raised in Orkney, I grew up with a passion and interest in animals. I qualified from Glasgow vet school in 2013.After graduating I worked in Burnley, Lancashire and then in Leeds in small animal practices. Whilst in Leeds I gained a certificate in Western veterinary acupuncture and chronic pain management as well as learning about Western veterinary herbal medicine. I ran pain clinics at my practice in Leeds for a few years but realised it was time for me to come home.
I now work part time for Bearsden Vets4Pets and also do referral chronic pain, acupuncture and herbal medicine through Longview Veterinary Services.
Outside of work I love music, walking with my husband and our two dogs Scapa and Stitch, yoga and cooking.
I graduated from the University of Glasgow Vet School in 2021 and was fortunate enough to join the Bearsden Practice. I have always been interested in small animal general practice. I enjoy being able to build a relationship with our clients and being there for their pets at all stages of their life. I have a keen interest in surgery and hope to further specialise in this area. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family.
Hi, I'm Joan and originally from New York City. I qualified from Glasgow in 2018 and spent the last 4 years in mixed practice in the Scottish Highlands, seeing all creatures great and small
I was delighted to join the Vets4Pets Bearsden team as a Student Veterinary Nurse in November 2020 having previously worked in the reception team of another Vets4Pets practice for 3 years. In 2021 I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse after completing my Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing at College of Animal Welfare. I have a keen interest in small furry animals, especially rabbits and will be looking to expand my knowledge and experience in this area. I currently have one little fur baby of my own, Floki, a Netherland Dwarf Rabbit and I’ll be looking to get him a friend in spring time.
Outside of work I love spending time with friends and family. I also like to keep active and spend my time either at the gym or snowboarding when I can.
Registered Veterinary Nurse
I joined the Vets4Pets Bearsden team as a student at the end of 2020. Prior to this, I completed a course in animal care and achieved my animal nursing assistant certificate in Dumfries. I thoroughly enjoyed learning and spent a lot of time with different animals including birds, reptiles and cattle.
I adore all patients but have a soft spot for small dogs. They remind me of my own dog, Rupert. He is a maltese and he loves the beach, sleeping and cherry tomatoes. I also have a giant African land snail called Mr Gary.
I feel so grateful to be able to work in such a great practice with colleagues who are so
knowledgeable and experienced. No day is the same and I’m constantly on the go and learning new things. As of this year, I will be continuing my studies and hope to be a qualified veterinary nurse in the coming years.
I have always had a love for animals and began my journey to the veterinary industry back in 2016 when I started volunteering at an animal rescue back home in Belfast. After this I worked as a student veterinary nurse from 2018 before moving to Glasgow in 2020. I started as a CCA at Vets4Pets in Hamilton before joining the team here at Bearsden Vets4Pets. I absolutely love working here, we have the best team! I especially enjoy meeting and getting to know our lovely patients and their owners. Outside of work I like to spend my time going to gigs, walking my boyfriend's dog and travelling back home the occasional weekend to spend time with my own rescue dogs, Murphy and Juno and my cat Tink.
Hi, my name is Lesley and I have been with Vets4Pets in Bearsden for over a year now and I am loving my role as Client Care Advisor. For me the best part of my role is being able to play and interact with the pets especially the puppies. I have two gorgeous fur babies, a chorkie called Gigi and a chihuahua called Lottie. They are my whole life and I love them more than my husband ha ha. In my spare time I love to eat out and travel abroad to the sun.
Client Care Advisor
Hello! My name is Lauren and I have been a client care advisor/receptionist here at Bearsden since 2022. My favourite part of the job is spending time with all the dogs that come through the door especially large breed dogs! My partner and I have a 5 year old Golden Retriever dog called Buddy who is my whole world. In my spare time I’m usually taking Buddy on a road trip around Scotland somewhere.
Vets4Pets Bearsden 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!
The friendly team can't wait to meet all of their new clients!
