Meet the team
I qualified from University College Dublin in 2013. I moved to Scotland and joined the Vets4Pets team in Ayr in September 2017 after 4 years in a mixed practice in Northern Ireland.
I am really enjoying getting to know all of our pets and their owners, and delivering the highest level of care. I have a particular interest in the care of geriatric patients and ophthalmology.
When not at work I can usually be found in, on or beside the sea, sailing, kayaking, scuba diving or horse riding.
After graduating from Glasgow Vet School in 2016 I worked in a small animal centre in Kilmarnock with a particular focus on emergency and critical care, before moving to Vets 4 Pets Ayr in August 2017 to further build my skills in medicine and surgery. I have a particular interest in internal medicine and anaesthesia, and particularly enjoy working up challenging medical cases.
I currently live in Kilmarnock with my husband, black Labrador and rescue cat. Outside of work I enjoy climbing mountains with my dog and cuddling up on the sofa with a good book and a cup of tea.
Hi my name is Julie-Anne and I’m a Registered Veterinary Nurse.
I joined the practice in October 2015. After a knee injury I struggled to deal with larger dogs and quickly realised I had an affinity for cats so have been working towards making our practice cat friendly and have become known as the "cat nurse" in the practice. I started working towards my Feline Nursing Certificate in 2019 and will hopefully have completed it by the start of 2020.
Hi I'm Melanie. I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse who qualified in August 2016 from Barony College. I trained at Edinburgh Vet School for 2 years and have spent the past year working in a local small animal practice. I joined the Vets4Pets team in June 2017 and i am looking forward to meeting all our clients and their pets. Outside of work I spend most of my time with my array of pets, my 12 year old German Shepherd Tara, my Syrian Hamster Larry, my showjumping horse Uno and Shetland Pony Toby!
Registered Veterinary Nurse
I joined the team in September 2012 as receptionist I was promoted to senior receptionist in 2015 and absolutely love my new role I love assisting in the care and dedication our team puts in daily. Previously I was a student at oatridge agricultural college where I have qualifications in horse management before starting with vets4pets I was formally a riding instructor for 5 years i love working with animals and people. Through working in the practice I rehomed my 3 legged cat toto he came into us at 7 weeks old through south Ayrshire cats protection to have his front leg amputated due to a deformed limb I instantly fell in love and 2 years later is thriving.
Hi my name is Donna & I joined the practice July 2015.
Originally from Lancashire I moved to Ayrshire over 26 years ago. Prior to joining the team I used to be a receptionist in a hotel & I love meeting new people, now I get the added bonus of meeting their lovely pets as well.
I have always had cats since I was a child & have 2 black & white boys called Jeffery & Harrison. In my spare time I like to spend time with my family & friends, read & grow veg in my greenhouse.
Hi my name is Ashleigh and I just recently joined the team in July 2018. I have always had a love for animals and was studying to become a zoologist before taking some time out to extend our family. Just now I am loving having a job where I can be around animals all day long and getting to know our clients. At home I have an 8 month old girl and two little dogs called Percy and Sooty. Believe me when I say the dogs are more work than my little girl!
Hi my names Natalie Dunn, I joined the company in December 2017. This job is different from any other job I have done before hand and I wouldn't change it for the world.
Each day is a new day with different opportunities, I love coming to work to see the animals daily, nothing cheers you up more than a happy animal.I myself have a 3 year old Lhasa Apso called Coisty he's my number #1.
Hi I’m Bexx & I joined the team here in March 2016. I was a student before & decided to take a chance doing something completely different. I love it here & enjoy working with people & getting to know their pets. I’m originally from Falkirk & moved to Ayr in 2014 with my cat & gained another along the way!
Hello, my name is Fran.
I joined the practice early in June 2019 after moving to Ayr. Before I moved back to Scotland I lived in America and Canada travelling around for 4 years. Meeting new people all the time and working with the public for over 12 years has made me realise I how much I enjoy listening to new stories and learning about people…. AND THEIR PETS!
I am animal mad, so getting to work in an environment where I meet so many of them is pretty great! I currently only have one young cat at the moment called Salvador, he might only be 8 months but he’s a big fluffy lazy potato. When I’m not at work I mainly do jigsaw puzzles, go walks anywhere with and everywhere with nature and doodle endlessly.
