I qualified from the University of Nottingham and began working at Liverpool Vets4Pets in June 2015. I was excited to join the team having previously undertaken placements here as a student, and have since enjoyed getting to know all of our lovely clients and their pets. I have always had a keen interest in small animal practice, particularly in soft tissue surgery and ophthalmology. At home I have a naughty tortie cat called Chihiro.

I qualified in 2015 in Warsaw University of Life Sciences in Poland. I had worked in Poland for three years before I moved to UK to expand my knowledge and experience. I have initially completed a 1.5 year internship in referral veterinary hospital to than transfer again to 1st opinion practice environment. I find working for Vets4Pets challenging, but also extremely interesting with the variety of the patients we see. Privately, I am a passionate outdoor person - I enjoy everything which involves camping, hiking, sailing, or just roaming around with my backpack.

At home I have a rescue (and sometimes bad-tempered) cat called Dottie, whom I rescued from my first practice. In 2021 I also took on a stray tortoise from a previous practice and we called her Eris.

I have been qualified since 2017, I have a keen interest in anaesthesia and surgery and would hope to complete a certificate in this soon. I love all animals but I especially love bigger dogs as they are the same height as me.

I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2002 and have since worked in Liverpool and around the North West.  I joined Vets4Pets in 2013 and came to Old Swan in June 2019.  I am delighted to be part of the friendly professional team here who all strive to give the best possible care to all of our patients.  At home, I have two cats, Paddington and Pootle, who were rescued as kittens and a rescue rabbit called Hazel.  Away from work, I volunteer with a charity which helps the dogs of homeless people, giving them basics such as food and bedding but also veterinary care when needed.  I am also involved in an arts organisation which creates public and community arts events and I have had my own artworks displayed in various cities throughout the country.

I wanted to be a vet nurse from a very early age (7) after my cat was run over and was looked after by some amazing vet nurses, and this never wavered. As soon as I left school I was lucky enough to find a practice to train in.

I have now been nursing for over 30 years and still love it!!! My particular interest is consulting and preventative health care. I love helping people look after their pets to try to keep them healthy and happy.

I have a few pets of my own, a Boxer dog called Maddi who is 13 years old, 4 cats of varying ages Mikey, Smitt, Priddy and Alien, 2 rats Remy & Lilac who are nearly 2 years old and 8 free range guinea pigs!

I also volunteer with a couple of animal charities as I can help them with my nursing experience, but this is also why I have ended up with rats and guinea pigs!!!
