I grew up in Prescot and attended the University of Liverpool Vet School, graduating in 2012. After this I moved to a busy practice in Stoke, but have returned to Liverpool and joined the Walton Vale team. I have worked with lots of rescues and have taken on a 3 legged Springer Spaniel called Daisy!
I am originally from Liverpool but have completed my veterinary degree at the Royal Veterinary College in London, I decided to return to Liverpool after my studies.
I have been training to Walton Vale Vets4Pets while at university, so know the practice and the team well. I’m particularly interested in cardiology, and have a Cocker Spaniel at home called Reggie!
I am from Liverpool and also attended the University of Liverpool School of Veterinary Science, qualifying in 2017. I started working at Old Swan Vets4Pets before transferring to Walton Vale. I have a keen interest in general surgery, but can’t wait to meet all of your pets during consultations.
I grew up in Newcastle upon Tyne but fell in love with Liverpool when I moved here to study Veterinary Science at university. After graduating in 2019 I worked in a busy veterinary hospital in the north-east for two years, then returned to Liverpool where I have settled. I have a particular interest in soft tissue surgery and love being around cats and rabbits
Bio coming soon!
I am from Liverpool and I have been working in the veterinary industry since I was 16 years old. I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse back in 2008. I have been working with Vets4Pets since 2010 working as a Vet Nurse and then I was promoted to Head Nurse. I have now moved to Walton Vale as their Clinical Manager which is a new role for me to undertake but I am looking forward to the challenge of this role.
At home I have a son called Charlie. My dream would be to have a house full of German Shepherds and Belgium Malinois and I would also love to own a rescue centre for them.

I originally started volunteering at Liverpool Old Swan Vets4Pets before moving to Companion Care Prescot and attending Myerscough to complete my Degree in Veterinary Nursing. Since qualifying I have working in at Northwest Veterinary Specialist where I found my passion for in patient care and working closely with animals to provide the best care and love whilst they were in with us. Following this I moved into providing Out Of Hours care working nights. I loved the emergency side of veterinary nursing and gained a lot of experience whilst there. I recently had my little boy Frankie and got to spend a whole year out of work with him and my beagle Hugo! I have now came to Walton Vale Vets4Pets to work some with familiar faces, a new lovely supporting team and still get to have a life outside of work.
I have been a client at Walton Vale Vets4Pets since the day it opened! I then came to the practice for work experience before starting my nurse training at a local practice. I qualified as Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2021 and moved over to Walton Vale in 2022.
I moved to Walton Vale Vets4Pets in 2021 to continue my training to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I attend college weekly and then receive training in the week in the practice to grow my practical skills.

I have been working in Vets4Pets practices for over 2 years, but have joined Walton Vale Vets4Pets on returning from maternity leave after my second son.

At home I have three dogs (Rico, Oleg and Flick) plus my partner and twice gorgeous sons to keep me busy!
This is my first time working in a veterinary practice, with previous roles in client care. I’m excited to meet your pets and learn how best to advise you on their care. At home I have a gorgeous staffy called Bella
I joined Vets4Pets in June 2018 after working at another vet practice upon leaving Myerscough college where I studied animal care. I have years of experience in both customer care based roles and reception. I have a Border Collie called Drake who I spend a lot of my spare time with at the beach.
I started at the practice on a temporary basis during the COVID pandemic to assist with looking after clients while social distancing! Once restrictions were lifted, I started permanently as a Client Care Advisor while attending university to study graphic design. I have a dog at home and you may see me arrive on my motorbike!
