I have been a veterinary surgeon for the last 1 years working all over the world. I have been privileged to live and work with some great people in Essex for the last 8 years practising veterinary medicine. My passion for excellent delivery of animal care and high quality customer centered service has been the main drive throughout my career. My special interests are all aspects of internal medicine and cardiology; I am currently studying for a certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice. When I am not working, I enjoy reading, jogging, playing football with my three boys and actively policing our exotic fishes from being overfed by the boys!

Hi I’m Nadia, 

I recently joined Vets4pets Southend in November 2022 having been at a different branch since May 2021. I’m in my second year of being a student veterinary nurse and I’m looking forward to seeing a variety of cases which continue to go towards my e portfolio and help me progress into a registered veterinary nurse. Having had a love for animals ever since I was young I always hoped I would be able to work alongside them and give them the best care possible which I’m really enjoying being able to do. In my free time I’m either socialising with friends or family or enjoying spending time with my older black and white cat and two young black cats.
