Meet the team
I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College London in 2005. I've always worked with small animals (dogs/cats/rabbits/small furries) and have worked in every area of practice from traditional on-call, to running an emergency clinic, back to traditional practice before coming to York Vets4Pets.
I started working here as a locum, and liked it so much that when Helen asked if I wanted to stay permanently, saying 'yes' was an easy decision. I honestly enjoy every aspect of being a vet, but my favourite parts are emergency and critical care, soft tissue surgery, cardiology, and treating dental problems. I find it really satisfying taking a really sick pet and returning them home wagging (or purring or nose twitching!).
Outside of work I am mum to a lovely eight-year old daughter, and we also have a spaniel, two hamsters, two fish and about fifty water snails that just keep reproducing! In the little time I have left I really enjoy fitness and writing fiction.
Hi, I’m Christine, one of the vets at Vets4Pets in York. I graduated from Cambridge University in 2017. I then decided to do something a bit different and spent 6 months travelling and working as a vet in New Zealand. It was an amazing and probably once in a lifetime opportunity. I’ve now settled back into life in the UK and after spending a year working in a mixed practice in North Yorkshire I have made the move to small animal practice. I’m excited to be joining the teams in both York and Selby.
In my free time I enjoy playing cricket, singing in choirs and hiking. I’m always up for anything involving adventure, travelling, sport, and generally being in the outdoors.
Hello! I’m Marilyn. I’ve been in York at Vets4Pets for a few months now and loving every minute of it. I graduated from Texas A&M in 1994. I had to leave my pets at home in the US, so I’d love it if I can spoil yours!
Hi I’m Faye and I am one of the veterinary surgeons at York vets4pets. I graduated from Cambridge in 2020 and have been working in small animal practice ever since. I love meeting and forming bonds with my patients and being able to improve their health and quality of life. I also have my own dog who I enjoy running with and participating alongside in canicross races. (She is the true champion though!)
My name is Katie and I am head nurse at the York Vets4Pets I began my ‘veterinary nursing journey’ in 2000 when I began my studies at the Royal Veterinary College in London. Three years later I qualified as a vet nurse and then gained my degree in 2004. Since then I have been working as a vet nurse for the same practice and have gained experience in all areas of the role including medical and surgical nursing, anaesthesia and nurse clinics.
I am also involved in the training of student vet nurses and I am the practices clinical coach. I enjoy all aspects of my job really and feel privileged to be involved in the care and treatment of people’s pets. I know first hand how important our animals are to us and always aim to look after my patients to the best of my ability and in a way I would want my own pets to be treated.
At home, I have a wonderful 11 year old Border Collie, ‘Jura’, a crazy little cat called ‘Kitkat’ and lots of pretty tropical fish. I also share my home with my partner and beautiful little boy who is three and a half years old and keeps me very busy when I am not at work!
I joined the fantastic nursing team here at Vets4Pets in August 2021 having spent 9 years working in a mixed practice where I trained and qualified in 2017.
I really enjoy all aspects of nursing but I really enjoy canine and feline endocrine disorders.
I am passionate about delivering a great client service with honest and open communication, putting the owners and pets at the heart of everything we do.
At home I am a Mum to 2 Border Terriers one of which is a tripod ! and has Cushings disease and a rare form of diabetes. I also have a mischievous blue and gold Macaw. They all keep me very busy when I'm not at work.
I qualified as a veterinary nurse from Askham Bryan College in 2011 and I'm excited to be working at Vets4Pets.
I enjoy all aspects of nursing, but particularly enjoy the medical side of things & nursing patients during their treatment / recovery. I also like being able to interact with pets & their owners during nurse clinics.The job can be both physically & emotionally demanding at times, but I love what I do & couldn't imagine doing anything else.
At home, I have the crazy ginger Lab, Frank and a cat called Peggy!
I recently travelled to Africa to work at Welgevonden Game Reserve where I learnt a lot about conservation. This was a great opportunity and I also learnt a bit about tracking, which was so exciting!
At home I live with my partner Rob, Larry and my hamster, Paddington.
Hi! I’m Grace and I’m very excited to join York Vets4Pets as a veterinary nurse! In my spare time I love travelling and exploring new places with Bonnie, my Cocker Spaniel. This is us at Peasholm Park in Scarborough, and as you can see she is the worst to take photos with! I guess ducks are clearly more exciting than posing for a photo with me! I’m looking forward to meeting you and all your pets!!
Hi, I'm Caitlin and I'm very grateful to be a part of a fantastic team at Vets4Pets York as a RVN now I have completed my final year of nurse training. I thoroughly enjoy nursing all animals great and small during their time with us. In my spare time, I love riding my 3 horses and snuggling my 3 cats. I also volunteer as Bed&Breakfast foster home for Hearing Dogs for the Deaf during their training before going onto their matched recipients."
Hi! My names Amber, I am currently working towards becoming a Registered Veterinary Nurse at Vets4Pets. Last year I moved from Edinburgh to York to study Veterinary Nursing. Becoming a Veterinary Nurse has been a dream of mine for a long time! Back home in Edinburgh I have two retired greyhounds, called Alba and Greg who at any opportunity I get I will go back home to visit them.
Hello, my names Lauren and I have recently changed roles from CCA to VCA.
I look forward to meeting you all!
Hello! My names Lucy and I joined the Vets4Pets York team in April 2019 as a Client Care Advisor.
I’m a massive animal lover of all shapes and sizes, I’ve always wanted to be a vet nurse so I’m hoping to follow my dream.
In my spare time I play some games, walk my pooch Shadow and read. Shadow is a reactive dog and it can be challenging at times but he’s so worth it! He’s worth everything and he gives the best cuddles too.
I look forward to seeing you all come in with your pets.
My name is Faith. I have 1 dog, 2 snakes, and a bearded dragon, so have a very busy lifestyle! I have a great passion for animals, and love to think I make a difference! I am a vegetarian and love finding new things to cook. I also love going for walks to the beach or down the river with my dog, and playing football.
Hi I’m Izzi, I am excited to join the Vets4Pets team here in York. I have an 8 year old dog named Coco who still acts like a little puppy!
