Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

After first studying at Bangor and Aberdeen universities, I graduated with a veterinary degree from the University of Cambridge in 1994. I worked in a rural practice in East Yorkshire for several years with pets, horses, farm animals and occasional "exotic" species such as rheas, wallabies and iguanas. I also worked in Lincolnshire briefly before opening my practice here in York. My favourite part of being a vet is being “hands on” with animals in the consulting room or operating theatre which is, thankfully, what I do mostly! Naturally I love all animals, particularly dogs because of their unconditional loyalty. I do not have a dog currently but, with my wife and young son, I have three cats: Lola, who can be seen on my shoulder in the picture, Milos and Tabitha. My favourite famous animal has to be Jerry the mouse (as in Tom & Jerry) because he is determined, innovative and always comes out on top! My spare time these days is divided between desperately trying get on top of the gardening, equally desperately trying to keep up with my son on the tennis court or in the swimming pool, and occasionally getting out on my mountain bike or in a rowing boat.

I graduated from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh nearly 18 years ago and have worked in small animal practice ever since.
My jobs have taken me from Staffordshire to Gloucestershire and as far a field as Australia and New Zealand. But finally we have settled in the best county of all, beautiful Yorkshire. 
Outside of work my husband, also a vet, and I enjoy all of the great outdoors with our daughter and son and our trusty sidekick Pip the Border Terrier.

I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of working at Vets4Pets and love seeing all of our lovely clients and patients. 


I have 2 small terrier mixes who we enjoy taking to the beach and for woodland walks. In my free time I enjoy spending time outside and swimming.

When I'm not at work I am always outdoors, I love gardening at home or on my allotment.I also do loads of walking, cycling and am currently getting back into swimming since my running days are now over :-( I also love kayaking. Music gigs and festivals feature too.

I started working at Vets4Pets in November 2016 and every day is different. I constantly meet lovely people & lovely animals! I've always had pets myself, ranging from dogs, cats, rabbits & hamsters. I've also looked after ferrets. At the moment I have a welsh terrier called Max & a Syrian hamster called Rosa. When I'm not at work, I enjoy going to the gym & cycling (I'm a qualified fitness instructor & personal trainer), spending time with my family & anything historical.

I've been working for Vets4Pets as a receptionist since January 2017. Originally from Russia, I moved to York in 2002. I love animals and had a Dalmatian called Lia while growing up. One of the perks of my job is to get to meet and greet all kinds of pets. In my spare time I like to play video games. Working at Vets4Pets has made me really appreciate how much vets and nurses do to help poorly and sick animals. I'm really glad to be part of the team.
