Meet the team
I have been working as a vet for over 20 years now, having qualified from the University of Liverpool back in 2001.
I opened Swindon Vets4Pets (then Companion Care) in May 2010, and the practice has gone from strength to strength since then. I am so proud of my amazing team, and I know that they strive to do the best they can every single day.
I enjoy all aspects of small animal medicine and surgery, and I am extremely passionate about offering complete cradle-to-grave care. I love seeing my patients grow, forming strong relationships with them and their owners, and caring for them as they get older. I am very lucky to have such a rewarding job.
I have three dogs at home — a Saluki Lurcher called Pablo, a Whippet called Clover, and an English Bulldog called Coco. They are all rescues with their own stories to tell. I thoroughly enjoy spending time with them and the rest of my family. When I get the opportunity, I love to travel — meeting new people, trying new foods, and getting up close to the local wildlife.
Lead Veterinary Surgeon
Ioana has been at Vets4Pets Swindon since April 2015, and she is a core part of the veterinary team.
She thoroughly enjoys working as a general practitioner and has a special interest in internal medicine.
I graduated as a veterinary surgeon in Chile back in 2015, and since then I have travelled and lived in a variety of countries, working in a wide range of industries.
I came to the UK in 2019 to complete my Master’s degree in Wildlife and Conservation, and I’m now in the process of obtaining my full registration with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
In my free time, I enjoy cycling and cuddling up on the sofa with my cat, Kiwi.
Kelly qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2008. She joined Vets4Pets Swindon back in 2015 after relocating from the Midlands, and she’s since become the backbone of our nursing team.
Kelly volunteers for the British Hen Welfare Trust as their Wiltshire rehoming coordinator, helping to find happy homes for hundreds of ex-production hens every year. At home, she enjoys spending time with her Jack Russell, Dougie, and tending to her vegetable patch.
Vicky has been a Registered Veterinary Nurse since 2015 following a varied career that included working as a Personal Assistant, a Customer Advisor for Butcher’s Pet Care, and a Special Constable for Northants Police.
Vicky says that she’s proof it’s never too late for a career change, having qualified as an RVN just before she turned 50.
Vicky holds an Extended Diploma in Animal Management, an Oral Care Nurse Certificate, and she has completed an Emergency and Critical Care course with VetsNow.
She has a 12-year-old tortoiseshell cat called Bonnie and enjoys gardening, photography, and scale modeling of fantasy figures. She also loves listening to music, particularly blues and hard rock/heavy metal.
My name is Charlotte Hall — Irish to my close friends (I’m originally from Northern Ireland).
I am friendly, empathetic, compassionate and willing to listen when needed. I have been working at the practice since June 2021. I qualified with a BSc Hons in Animal Science from Hartpury College in 2012.
I've previously worked as a student veterinary nurse, and I’ve also worked in Gloucester Services and in my local Morrisons during the Covid pandemic.
I used to own chickens — two Orpingtons and two Burford Browns. I now only own fish, mainly Guppies, and I’ve had a go at breeding them.
My hobbies are running, reading literature, walking, and cooking at home with my partner.
I joined Vets4Pets in 2021 as I love animals and wanted a change in career. I am really enjoying learning new skills and getting to do what I love every day.
In my spare time, I enjoy photography and spending time with my French Bulldog cross, Buddy, and my fiancé, Ciaran. They are my world.
I joined the team in August 2021. I graduated from Chester University with a BSc in Zoo Management, and I have a real passion for maintaining the welfare of animals.
I have three rats, a Bearded Dragon, and a Labrador. On my days off, I like to partake in restoring and exhibiting vintage horticultural machinery.
I joined Vets4Pets Swindon in September 2022 to gain knowledge and experience during my placement year at Harper Adams University, where I am studying Bioveterinary Sciences.
I was born and grew up in the Midlands before moving away from home for university.
At home I have a lionhead rabbit called Simba, named after Simba in the Lion King. I am also a cat person which I discovered after working at a boarding cattery part-time while attending school.
During my spare time I enjoy watching women's football and rugby union, reading, and spending time with friends and family. My close friends often joke I am like their Grandma as I am often found wrapped in a blanket, knitting.

Veterinary Care Assistant
Veterinary Care Assistant
I started at Vets4Pets in August 2020 after finishing university.
I studied for 3 years at the University of Worcester and graduated with a degree in Forensic and Applied Biology. I finished university in the middle of the pandemic and was struggling to find jobs in the science sector. Luckily, I landed on my feet at Vets4Pets.
I have a German Shepherd, who is still a crazy puppy at heart, and two tortoises who have been in the family since my dad was a child.
I volunteer for Girlguiding and am currently in the process of completing my leadership qualification. I have been part of Girlguiding since I was five, starting in Rainbows and moving up through Brownies, Guides, and Rangers. I had a break while I was at university but joined back as a Leader in Training once I was home.
Karen started at Vets4Pets in August 2015, and she is now the head of our reception team.
Having relocated from Berkshire, Karen now enjoys living on a smallholding in a beautiful village in Wiltshire, where she keeps chickens, ducks, geese, sheep, and cows.
Previously, Karen worked for 15 years in the paediatric unit of a large hospital. She has three daughters and six grandchildren, all of whom have inherited her love of animals.
I joined the practice in Summer 2021 as a practice administrator.
I graduated from the University of Liverpool with a degree in Psychology back in 1997. I also completed my PGCE at the University of Chester in 2000.
I’ve been lucky to have a wide variety of jobs over the years. I’ve worked as a kitchen hand, a barman, a care assistant, an advertising salesman, a primary and nursery school teacher, and most recently as a technology journalist. I also used to run a successful eBay business from home, refurbishing and selling retro video games.
In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, reading, playing basketball, travelling, spending time with my family, and caring for our three dogs.
I joined Vets4Pets Swindon at the beginning of June 2021.
I am currently studying biology, psychology and business studies at A-Level, and I hope to go to university afterwards. I am interested in a career in veterinary nursing.
I have two Jack Russell crosses, and I enjoy dancing at my local ballet school.
I joined the practice in August 2020, and I absolutely adore working at Vets4Pets.
I was born in Swindon, I have three cats, and I enjoy spending time with my family when I’m not working.
I joined the team in October 2022, having previously spent thirteen years working as a receptionist in a leisure centre and then as a wards technician at another veterinary hospital. I've always loved animals and am considering working towards veterinary nursing.
I was a dancer for many years from a young age, travelling the country for various competitions and shows--even competing in the All England Dance finals--so dancing has always been close to my heart.
I've lived in Swindon my whole life, and when I'm not out exploring with my daughter I can be found either in my kitchen cooking up tasty treats, or snuggled up with my partner and our two cats!
