Meet the team
I qualified as a veterinary surgeon in Italy in 1998 and after practising as a vet in Italy, I moved to the Middle East (Kuwait and Qatar). I have been working in the UK since 2011.
My special interests are all first opinion conditions in dogs and cats, along with ultrasound and orthopaedic procedures.
I'm originally from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I came to the UK in 2010 and studied in the University of Glasgow. I qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 2015, then moved down to Essex to start my career, and have been here ever since! I joined this lovely team in January 2020.
I love my job, and I have a special love for surgery (it was why I wanted to be a vet in the first place!). I am currently doing a post graduate certificate in a small animal surgery.
In my free time, I enjoy going to the West End to watch musicals, playing board games, visiting National Trust sites, and keeping fit. I have a golden retriever, but they live with my family 6500 miles away!
I miss my family (and fur family) all the time, but have been lucky enough that everyone has been lovely here, making this my home away from home.
I graduated from university in 2013 with a degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare.
I then volunteered at Vets4Pets Southend for 6 months as a Nurse Assistant, before progressing to Companion Care Chelmsford with a job as a VCA. I transferred to this surgery when it opened, started my nurse training and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in January 2018.
I have a Golden Retriever called Brody, two guinea pigs called Patrick and Petal, and a chicken called Fleur. I've been horse riding since I was 9 years old and love spending time with my friends and family
I qualified as a small animal hydrotherapist in 2014.
I joined the practice as a VCA in August 2016 and I started studying for my official VCA qualification in October 2017, which I have passed successfully! I am due to start my Registered Veterinary Nurse training soon.
At home I have two dogs called Peanut and Winchester and a cat called Sydney and two rabbits Joey and Chandler. In my spare time I enjoy dog walking and drawing
I joined the practice in February 2020.
Previously, I started working in radio after college for 3 years. I then joined an accountancy practice who I have spent the last 27 years with where I trained in payroll & book-keeping.
I have a German Shepherd called Codi, 2 Pygmy Goats named Ziggy & Valentino, 3 Guinea Pigs (Spike, Stanley & Gerald), 2 rabbits (Cashew & Walnut) & 3 Bluebell chickens.
When I have some spare time I love spending it with my friends & family especially my 2 granddaughters. I also enjoy motorbike rides out with my Hubby
