Meet the team
I was born and brought up in Glasgow and attended Glasgow University Veterinary School. I graduated in 2004 so I have over a decade of experience in small animal practice. After graduation I spent a year as an intern in a referral practice in Essex before moving into first opinion practice in London. I spent the majority of my time in London working for a hospital-based practice where my duties included looking after the Metropolitan police dogs of south London. After leaving London I worked for 2 years in Aberdeen running a branch practice for a large veterinary group. After leaving Aberdeen I spent a year working and traveling in Australia and New Zealand before returning home to open the Glasgow Forge practice. We have now been open for two years and the surgery is just continuing to grow and expand which has been great to oversee. I live in Glasgow with my wife Sarah (we recently got married in Iceland September 2016). Also at home is my geriatric 3-legged rescue cat called Cheeky who features in the practice photos. We also have some new additions to the family…a ginger rescue cat called Grettir (Icelandic name for the famous Garfield), Sylvester and Larry. I enjoy the variety of small animal first opinion practice but I particularly enjoy discussing preventative health care with owners and dealing with skin cases. I am currently studying a master’s degree in ‘Advanced Clinical Practice’ part-time at the University of Edinburgh.
Hi, I am a Registered veterinary nurse and studied at Edinburgh Napier University. I completed all placements here at Glasgow Forge since September 2016 and officially joined the team in January 2019.
I enjoy all aspects of my job, in particular surgical nursing. I currently have two pets of my own, a black labrador called Kobe and a Ragdoll cat called Freya.

Hi! I’m Nicole one of the nurses here at Vets4pets. I started my veterinary nursing course back in 2018, I have been working within the practice since 2019 where I had started as a student on placement to complete my final year. Following the conclusion of my final student year I was lucky enough to be offered a job. I love my job, being able to care for animals is something that really interests me plus my colleagues & team are amazing to work with.
At home I have two family Staffies called Lucy and Belle. We have recently just taken on a rescue dog who needed a lot of attention and training but is now fitting in great with the other dogs! Caring for animals has always been a passion of mine, The thing I love the most is that every day is different. I am looking forward to continuing my career here as a Registered Veterinary Nurse.
