I grew up in Somerset, graduating from Cambridge in 2007 and spent over 7 years as an Army vet, covering small animal practice worldwide, including in Germany and Afghanistan. I have an interest in small animal medicine, rehabilitation and working dogs. With my man-agement background, the challenge to become a Joint Venture Partner with my wife Sonia and Vets4Pets was an obvious next step. I'm currently studying towards my Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice and a Masters in Business Administration. In my spare time, I dabble in DIY, look after our animals and might attempt the odd fitness challenge..

I grew up on a farm in the Peak District and knew from an early age that I wanted to become a vet. I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2007 and started my veterinary career in a mixed practice in Cornwall. I've since worked in a variety of small animal and mixed practices, in addition to spending three years as an Army vet. I'm currently studying for my CertAVP (Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice) and enjoy all aspects of small animal practice, with a particular interest in small animal surgery and emergency and critical care. In my spare time I enjoy walking our dogs, skiing, and of course looking after Alfie!

I qualified in 2007 from the Royal Veterinary College in London and after a stint in New Zealand, returned to Hampshire where I have remained ever since.

I have worked in small animal first opinion practice since graduating and love getting to know people and their furry friends!  I particularly enjoy surgery and also all aspects of preventative care, especially trying to improve welfare and making life enjoyable for our patients.

I have found a very happy new home here at Vets4Pets Amesbury and am proud to be part of such an awesome team.

When not working, I spend my time with my 2 kids, husband and retirement village of old lady guinea pigs!

Growing up, I was always fascinated by animals and science. Having claimed a Dalmatian as my best friend when I was 8-years-old, pursuing a career as a vet seemed a natural choice!
I graduated from the University of Surrey in 2021 (having completed a tumultuous placement year through the pandemic), and started with the Amesbury team in October of that year. Whilst at university, I developed keen interests solving medical cases, and building close relationships with clients and their pets. I am also keen to cultivate knowledge in exotic and wild species; a passion which was ignited by a conservation trip to Namibia in 2016, and one which still hasn’t left me.
I am originally from Durrington, but now live near Hook in Hampshire with my partner. In my spare time you can find me on a run, attempting to cook as well as my mum, or daydreaming about the Whippet I’ll one day get!

I have always wanted to work with animals and began my journey studying for a BSc in Animal Management at Sparsholt College, graduating in 2012. During this time I developed a strong knowledge of exotic species and pursued my love of Asian Elephants working with them in the UK and abroad. I then undertook my Veterinary Nurse training, qualifying in 2014 from Lynwood School of Veterinary Nursing in Dorchester. I am really passionate about being an RVN, especially forming strong bonds with clients and their pets. I particularly enjoy carrying out nurse clinics and dealing with emergency and critical care cases. In the future I hope to develop my knowledge in nutrition, rehabilitation and palliative care. I spend my spare time travelling as much as possible, baking, crafting and spending time in the countryside with my partner and dog Nellie.

I have spent the last 16 years working in various roles in veterinary practice.

During that time, I have studied to achieve a FdSC in Animal Management and Applied Science, and qualified from Lynwood with a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing. In 2018 I completed a Certificate in Canine/Feline Veterinary Nutrition which I very much enjoyed and look forward to putting into practice.

Within my work at the practice, I enjoy practical tasks such as diagnostic imaging and laboratory work.

I currently have a rescue cat but I grew up with dogs and also kept rats for many years. If I’m not working you can find me climbing or running – my favourite hobbies! I look forward to meeting you and your pets here at Vets4Pets over the coming months.

I graduated in 2018 with a Diploma in Veterinary Nursing from Sparsholt College, whilst working in a small animal practice.

I was raised in the London borough of Redbridge and worked for the charity Blue Cross Animal Hospital in Victoria. Inspired by the team I then decided to pursue a change of career after having worked in aesthetic medicine.

I have developed a keen interest in theatre nursing and enjoy in-patient care. I hope to further my studies with a certificate in Anaesthesia and develop my clinical skills during my first year as a qualified RVN. I also have a personal goal to volunteer for a conservation programme with endangered species in the future.

My spare time is spent raising my son with my partner and we really enjoy living in the Wiltshire countryside with our Tolling Retriever Louie.

 

I'm proud to be a part of the team at Amesbury caring for your pet and look forward to meeting you all.

I grew up in North Wales before getting married and moving to Salisbury in 2014. I have always had an interest in animals, so much so that my husband and I got married at Chester Zoo! Taking care of animals has always been my passion, and I currently own two very energetic Springer Spaniels; Jake and Archie, who I enjoy walking in my spare time. My career with animals began in 2009 when I studied a Foundation Degree in Animal Care at university, which I successfully completed in 2011. I furthered my education by completing a Bachelor of Science (Honours) Degree in Animal Studies in 2012, enjoying all aspects of the course but with a particular interest in animal health and behaviour. I have volunteered at many rescue and wildlife centres, in addition to working as a kennel maid at a boarding kennels for three years, before joining the veterinary industry as a receptionist. I thoroughly enjoy this role, particularly meeting clients and their beloved pets. I have been lucky enough to have been part of a Vets4Pets team before in my home town and cannot wait to be a part of the team again. I look forward to meeting you all at the new Amesbury practice.

Having grown up around animals from a very young age, I've always had a love for them. I am a huge horse lover but also have a love for dogs, cats and small furries (I'm a sucker for a fluffy rabbit!) I have two horses, a dog, a cat and a rabbit with whom I spend my spare time. I'm regularly out competing at local events with my two horses. I've loved every second of working at Vets 4 Pets Amesbury. I can't wait to meet more of you and your pets in the coming months.

I grew up in Hampshire and was lucky enough to have a cocker spaniel and ponies from a young age. As I always knew I wanted to work with animals, I went on to study Horse Management at Sparsholt College. Following this I worked at various stables before deciding on a career change and joining Hampshire Police when I was 21. After a few years ‘on the beat’, I moved into a specialist department where I worked until my military husband was posted to Germany; where we spent a very happy 18 months with our two children, Abigail and George. We were then posted back to the Amesbury area where we have settled along with our Terrier cross, Mouse.  As a family we enjoy competing at Pony Club with Abigail or watching George play football for the local team; and when we can - heading off in our caravan (we especially love Wales!).  Since starting at Amesbury Vets4Pets as a receptionist in 2017, I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all our clients and their pets.  I have now completed the British Veterinary Receptionists Association certificates in bronze and silver and am looking forward to moving on to gold; which will mean I am an Accredited Veterinary Receptionist!

I have grown up around animals for as long as I can recall... dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, pigs, horses and a parrot! I love all things equestrian and I’m not afraid to admit to being a bit of a crazy horse lady. I live with my boyfriend and our two crazy cockers, Fred and Wilma. I spent 5 years in the motor industry with Ford and Volkswagen. My change in career came after Wilma was involved in an accident that required surgery. The level of support and care we received from Vets4Pets was amazing and inspired me to want to provide other pet owners with the same feeling we had. I am so happy and grateful to be a part of the Vets4PetsPets team.  You may now also see me with the clinical team in pink scrubs - as I begin the journey in training to be a Veterinary Care Assistant and hopefully, a registered veterinary nurse!

I grew up in Salisbury and spent my childhood with dogs, horses and my beloved hamster! Animals have always been something I've been inspired by and at the age of 26 I decided to go back to college to do an Advanced Technical Diploma in Animal management level 3. This reignited my fire to learn and now I'm back at University studying Veterinary Physiotherapy for dogs and horses and I'm loving it, with the support of my partner Matt and our fluffy dog Ginny. I was so excited to be given the opportunity to join the Vets 4 Pets team as it combines my love for animals, people and organising! I was delighted to find myself in such a welcoming and warm place to work.

I moved to Whitchurch just over a year ago and love being surrounded by the countryside and seeing the incredible wildlife just on my doorstep. I live there with my partner Carl, our stubborn but loveable Daschund cross Douglas, our 2 piggies Leo and Troy, our dwarf hamsters Hulk and Hogan and our array of tropical fish.
I have just joined the team but I am enjoying learning the ropes and starting to get to know our clients and their beloved pets. I am so grateful for the opportunity and am excited to learn more everyday and grow into the role. Thank you to all the staff and clients who have made me feel incredibly welcome!!
