Meet the team
I’ve always wanted to work with animals so was thrilled upon qualifying from Edinburgh Vet School in 2000.
Since then I’ve spent over 16 busy years gaining a wide range of veterinary experience. I started out in mixed animal practice where I also treated farm animals and horses before moving to companion animal practice.
For the last few years I have mostly worked with pets in the UK but I have also been fortunate to have some great experiences working abroad including general practice in Australia and voluntary projects in Botswana, Thailand, Portugal and Spain.
I love living in the local area where I get to indulge in my main activity away from work, rowing. I’ve rowed competitively for 25 years, most recently winning events at the National Masters Championships and when I’m not at work, I can usually be found paddling up and down the River Thames over in Henley.
I enjoy all aspects of being a vet, both medical and surgical, but I would have to say that the most satisfying part is developing a good relationship with my clients and their much loved family pets.
My aim has always been to provide friendly, caring and appropriate healthcare advice and treatment to a high standard. Both myself and my fabulous team here at High Wycombe look forward to meeting you and helping your pets soon.
After graduating from the Royal Veterinary College in 2017, I took time to go travelling around Asia. I have been practising in small animal medicine since.
I enjoy the wide variety being a Vet offers and have a particular interest in Internal Medicine.
Outside of work, I enjoy exploring the countryside with my Labrador, Whiskey.
I have been a nurse for nearly 15 years.
Until late 2021,I worked in a referral hospital specialising in neurology and as a ward lead.
I have a diploma in Feline Nursing and Behaviour. I have also trained in nutrition and worked for Hill's Pet food. I am currently working towards a Diploma in canine behaviour.
I have two cats and a disabled Miniature dachshund who I rescued. Due to having a bilateral disk pressing on his spinal cord, he was unable to use his hind legs however, he is super fast on two and we enjoy a wonderful life together.
I became a registered veterinary nurse in 2014 after years of working as a kennel assistant and then a trainee veterinary nurse. I have always loved the company of animals, and having grown up around dogs, horses and cats, it was a dream of mine to be able to work with animals as an adult.
I’m very fortunate to be working with some of the most amazing people who share my ethos that every patient should be treated as if they were our own. I have a particular interest in canine behaviour, veterinary physiotherapy and care for senior pets and those with chronic conditions. I absolutely love getting to know all my patients and better still to watch them walk back out of our door, healthy and well!
I am currently training as a Student Veterinary Nurse working towards my RVN qualification. This is my dream job and something I have always wanted to do.
I have always shared my life with animals and currently have a horse who has been with me for 19 years. I addition, I also have five dogs & six chickens. I cannot imagine a life without my fur babies.
There have been many roles in my working life, but the ones with animals are by far the best, most rewarding and most memorable.
I came to Vets4Pets High Wycombe from a referral centre where I learnt many amazing things, but here, I truly love the amazing team around me. I love being able to build a relationship with both the animals and their owners who we see on a regular basis. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a patient leave the Practice knowing that you have helped to ease their pain or discomfort and go on to live a happy, healthy life.
I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2016, having completed my training at a small, local practice. I then spent the following three years at a referral hospital where I worked my way up to the position of Orthopaedic Nurse Practitioner.
After completing my certificate in Anaesthesia, I realised I missed the variety that general practice provides, so I now locum here at Vets4Pets High Wycombe along with a couple of other practices.
My favourite part of nursing is being involved in surgery & monitoring the patient whilst they have a smooth recovery.
I have three-legged rescue Papillion who regularly comes to work with me and keeps everyone entertained!
I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse at the RVC in 2016. Since then, I have spent my career as a locum nurse working in first opinion, emergency & referral care.
I enjoy emergency & critical care nursing as I find it is very rewarding, along with medicine cases.
I have two cats and a Golden Retriever, who happens to be the love of my life!
I was originally a qualified sports physiotherapist and did that for a while but the pandemic showed me that you can change careers and follow your passions. That is how I ended up as a Veterinary Care Assistant.
I have always been mad about animals and the arrival of the first German Shepherd into our home when I was just 10, took that to another level. So when eight years later, we added another German Shepherd, I had become obsessed.
I've come into Vets4Pets High Wycombe as my second job in the veterinary world and as much as I enjoyed analysing injuries and treating humans, I have found it much more fun & rewarding to care for sweet animals.
I'm lucky enough to do this job surrounded by a wonderful, supportive team.
I joined the team at Vets4Pets High Wycombe in 2021, following a career in retail & hospitality.
A lot of my skills from previous roles have been put to use in the day to day life at the Practice.
I feel very lucky to work with such a dedicated and caring team.
No two days are the same. Some days are sad days but most days are happy days. There is nothing better than meeting the animals that come through our door.
I am really pleased to have joined the team at Vets4Pets High Wycombe, it is a very friendly atmosphere and I enjoy meeting all the clients and their pets.
I have always worked in admin related roles and now happy to combine admin with reception at Vets4Pets. Meeting all the animals is certainly a perk of the job.
I grew up in London and have had several family pets of my own, including guinea pigs, tortoises and a Beagle called Prince. During my adult life, I have been lucky to own other dogs over the years and have gone full circle as I now own two Beagles.
