Meet the team
Hello, I’m Lauren (and the feline is my gorgeous girl, Lily). I qualified from Bristol University in 2011 and moved to Essex 5 years ago. Since graduating I have completed some extra qualifications - I am an ‘official veterinarian’ which means I can do pet passports for pets wishing to travel, I have also recently finished a certificate in small animal surgery which included more complex procedures than those usually done in first opinion practice.
I started working for Rayleigh Vets4Pets this January and am enjoying it very much, both the team and the clients have all been very welcoming so thank you!
In my spare time I enjoy painting, astronomy (when there’s a clear night) and I am currently trying to improve my photography skills.
I have been a member of the night team at Vet4Pets Rayleigh since October 2015. Prior to this I worked in a small animal practice in Harlow for over four years after graduating from the Royal Veterinary College. My interests are in emergency medicine and surgery and rabbits.
At home I have two young children and two cats Summer and Bernie. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the cinema, theatre and going on nature walks.
Hi I'm Chloe, the Head Veterinary Nurse here at Rayleigh Vets4Pets. I have been working at Rayleigh since August 2016 and graduated from Nottingham Trent University in July 2017 with a degree in Veterinary Nursing.
I love working with all the team members at Rayleigh as we are more like family than colleagues! I'm extremely grateful to be able to care for your animals as if they are my own and meet lots of new people on a daily basis.
Outside of work I enjoy dancing and aerial fitness. At home I have a chocolate Labrador called Olive, two black cats, Tarzan and Rocky and two turtles, Hugo and Pedro.
I've been working as a Veterinary Nurse for 11 years now, I always knew I had to work with animals & this seemed an ideal route in.
I have 6 dogs, 2 Whippets, 1 Cocker spaniel, 2 Labradors & a tiny Jack Russell X. My Labs & Spaniel are used as working dogs & I haves raced & shown my Whippets to much success. I have a keen interest in dog training. I have one daughter who also is a dog lover & is often found teaching our dogs new tricks!
Other than spending time with my dogs, I am a bit of a fitness lover & and compete in semi-professional boxing.
I have been nursing for the past 15 years, and joined Vets4Pets in October 2016 as a night nurse. I am proud to be part of an amazing team, and to be able to offer you and your pets great care 24/7.
In my spare time I love to craft and spend time with family & friends, including my rescue cat Sebastian.
Hi I'm Stacey. I am one of the qualified veterinary night nurses here at Vets4Pets Rayleigh, helping to provide 24 hour care to your pets. I have been nursing for 15 years and qualified for 11 years.
I live in Rayleigh with my husband, 2 children & our dog Bella.
I’m Vicky, I am the Practice Manager at Rayleigh Vets4Pets and I have worked here for nearly 3 years. I love working in such a supportive and caring team and feel lucky to have the opportunity to meet a variety of different patients and clients on a daily basis.
When not at work I spend my time with my 3 daughters and our collection of pets which currently consists of 3 fish, 2 dogs, a hedgehog and 2 ponies.
I joined Vets4Pets Rayleigh in April 2017, after spending time bringing up my two children. I have previously worked as a vets receptionist and am really enjoying working with a great team in a role I love.
I have lived in Rayleigh all my life, and as a family we are animal lovers with two cats, two rabbits and two guinea pigs. In my spare time I enjoy shopping and socialising with friends and family.
Hi, I’m Cris and I’ve been at Rayleigh for about 6 months so far as an Intern Veterinary Surgeon. I have previously studied Veterinary Science at a university in Romania and have also worked in Denmark dealing with farmyard animals.
The thing that I enjoy most about working at Rayleigh is the variety of surgical cases that we see and also working alongside a great team.
In my spare time I enjoy wall climbing and watching movies.
I’m Becky, one of the student day nurses. I have been working here at Rayleigh Vets4Pets for about 3 years.
I really enjoy working with all different types of animals. I have quite a range myself! A cat called Ron (after Ron Weasley), a Lurcher called Lily and a horse called Izzy.
Horse riding is my main hobby taking up all of my spare time.
Hi my names Kieran, and I’m a fairly new face at Vets4Pets Rayleigh. I’m a Veterinary Care Assistant, which means I’m mainly found in kennels helping to look after the many animals we welcome into our care.
David Attenborough is one of my many idols, who influenced my decision to pursue a career to work, learn, and care for animals, as this has always been a passion of mine. There is nothing more rewarding than working alongside the range of animals and amazing team here at Vets4Pets, and I am loving every minute of it.
