I qualified as a veterinary surgeon in 1999 and have worked in small animal and emergency/critical care practice since graduating. After all this time I still very much love being a vet and I enjoy the challenges that general practice brings both in medicine and surgical cases. Every day is different. The bond between a pet and their owner is something very special and I consider myself privileged to be able to play a part in maintaining that relationship.

I qualified as a veterinary surgeon from the university of Edinburgh in 2018 but I am a local girl from Sunderland. i had spent several weeks doing work experience with Sunderland Vets4pets where i became very fond of the practice and the team and was thrilled to be offered a job as a new graduate vet. I love performing surgery but also have an interest in medicine so general practice is a great balance for me. i like to spend most of my spare time is spent walking with my dog, Fergus.

I graduated in 2019 with a Double Degree in Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science from the University of Lleida, Spain. I moved to the North East of England soon after graduating, where I worked in a first opinion practice for two years before joining Vets4Pets Sunderland South team in November 2021. I have a strong interest in Internal Medicine, even though I love all the disciplines of Veterinary Medicine.

 

I am currently working on a Post Graduate Certificate in Internal Medicine.

 

In my spare time, I love to explore the countryside. I have a Chihuahua called Yeti who I love taking on walks.

I went on to complete my nursing training and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 1998. 5 years later I joined the Vets4Pets becoming the groups first Veterinary Nurse Partner. After over 15 years as a Practice Partner my role has moved from full time nursing to now mainly practice management although I like to keep my hand in with nursing.  My working week is split between both Sunderland South Vets4Pets and Sunderland Vets4Pets in Fulwell.

I have had a love for animals since being little and when an opportunity came about to join the team at Vets4Pets as a VCA I jumped at the chance. Every day is different in this role. My placement is split between attending practice and college. I look forward to caring for the patients in our practice and will be working hard to pursue my goal to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse in the future.

I oversee the reception team and deal with the customer care aspect of the practice. As we open our sister practice in Sunderland South I will be spending time across both practices assisting and supporting the reception team.
