Meet the team
I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2010 and started out working in veterinary hospitals in England before returning home to work in and around Aberdeen for the past 7 years. My wife and I are proud owners of Vets4Pets Aberdeen & Bridge of Don and aim to provide our patients with the best possible care. Between us we have a variety of interests. I am adept in the treatment and handling of feathery and scaly creatures along with my keen interest in surgery. Sheila enjoys all aspects of general practice especially getting to know the clients and their furry friends. Outside of work we can be found gardening, baking and doing DIY whilst entertaining our 2 young children (Isabelle & Oliver) Molly the cat, Daisy the dog and our small flock of free range chickens.
Hello, I'm Sheila. I've worked as a Vet in small animal practice, in various UK locations since graduating in 2010 from Glasgow Vet School. I enjoy the variety of first opinion work, especially getting to know clients and their furry companions. I also have an interest in companion animal behaviour.
Outside of vet life I can usually be found spending time with my family at home, in the beautiful Scottish countryside, often running after our 2 young kids, our dog Daisy and Dobby the Sphnyx cat. In my spare time I enjoy baking, running and most of all, holidays in the sunshine
I grew up in Aberdeenshire and studied Sports Coaching at College.
After that, I started my 15 year career in the leisure industry. I began as a lifeguard and I worked my way up to a managerial position. Now I have transferred my skills over to the veterinary profession. I previously work at Inverurie Vets4Pets as Practice Manager before starting at Aberdeen and Bridge of Don. My aim for both practices is to building a great team to help to keep your pets happy and healthy.
In my spare time I walk our dog Murphy and spend quality time with my family.
I am currently a first year Student Veterinary Nurse about to start my second year at SRUC; I am excited to progress towards becoming a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I was a Veterinary Care Assistant in the Aberdeen branch of Vets4Pets and decided to progress towards Veterinary Nursing. I have worked at Bridge of Don Vets4Pets since we opened in February 2018.
I started with Vet4Pets in August 2016 following working 4 years in Pets at Home and completing a HND in Animal Care at North East Scotland Collage. I have always had a passion for caring for pets of all sizes. At home I have a Dwarf Hamster, Guinea Pigs, Fish and a Cat at home.
I am currently waiting to sit my final OSCE practical examinations for qualifying as a registered veterinary nurse, after completion of my course at SRUC. I am very excited to be taking the next step in my career, I hope to continue to see the clients and their pets at the practice and aid in giving your pets the best care we can! I have a keen interest in emergency and critical care, nursing clinics and improving the quality of care in practice for our patients.
Hi my name is Janet. I am looking forward to meeting both you and your pets when you come to visit the Vets4Pets at the Bridge of Don store. I am one of the part time receptionist team that will greet you when you visit or even come for just a look around the practice.
I have worked in the veterinary world for 19 years, first in Kendal which was both small and large animal practice. I then moved to Aberdeen with husband’s job and worked at a local practice for 9 years. Following a little time off, I am ready for a new and exciting adventure at Bridge of Don Vets4Pets and hope to see you soon.Outside work I like walking our dog Sally the Springer spaniel on the beach and in the woods. I also like reading, swimming and gardening. When I lived in Kendal we had hens, a goat, 2 pet lambs, 2 geese and a dog and, if the back door got left open, the hens would be in the kitchen eating the dog’s food. I like all types of animals apart from snakes (so will hide if they come in). Look forward to seeing you all soon.
Client Care Advisor
I am a Client Care Adviser at both Aberdeen and Bridge of Don practices. I have always loved animals so being able to work for Vets4Pets was so exciting for me. I really enjoy being on reception and getting to welcome all pets (and their owners), giving them cuddles before they go in and cuddles afterwards when the vets/nurses make them sad. Working out of both practices means i get to meet lots of new people and i enjoy building relationships with them all to ensure we give the best possible care to their animals. In my spare time i like going for long walks out in the countryside with my families dogs and following more cute animals on facebook and instagram than humans.
I am a part time receptionist at Vets4Pets in Bridge of Don and I can’t wait to meet all of you and your furry little friends. I have just started my introduction to animal care course at Craibstone College. One day I hope to be a trained veterinary nurse but until then I will try my very best to help you and your pets in any way I can J
I love any animal but rats are my all-time favourite!
