I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College London in 2012 and came to join the Biggleswade team in 2019 as a permanent Vet. Before this I worked for Luton Vets4pets for 7 years. I enjoy all areas of veterinary work but I particularly love soft tissue surgery. In my free time I love music, I play the piano and cello I also love going to the gym and spending time with my family and friends.

In May 2023 I gained my certificate in Ophthalmology and in September 2023 I completed a course in acupuncture.

I’m excited to meet you all and your pets soon.

Hi, I’m Karen and I’m a part time vet. I graduated from Cambridge in 2010 at an older age than most Vets as I had previously worked in the area of household insurance for 15 years. A life changing opportunity allowed my to fulfil my dream and retrained as a Vet. I love combining my customer service skills from my pre-Vet life with my desired to help all the wonderful pets and their lovely owners. I enjoy all areas of veterinary work from meeting pets and their owners to all the fascinating work behind the scenes with the excellent V4P Biggleswade team. When not at work, I enjoy family time with my husband and son as well as my two fur babies, Harry the Irish Setter and noisy Jenny Any Dots the Bengal cat. I love being outdoors walking miles with my family & hound as well as looking after my garden. I’m also the Akela with a local Cub Pack.

I graduated as a vet from the Royal Veterinary College in 2008. I completed two junior training scholarships in small animal medicine and surgery before settling into general practice. Before joining in 2019, I worked in various small animal veterinary practices and spent some time volunteering as a vet abroad. My interests include radiography and medicine. Outside of work, I enjoy power-lifting and baking cakes. I also spend my time walking and cuddling my Italian Greyhound pup, Dobby.

Hello, my name is Kathryn!  

I joined Vets4Pets Biggleswade as a receptionist in October 2020, in a year that was very uncertain, I found a role/place and work colleagues that make everyday better! 

I have always had such a huge love for animals, having hamsters, rabbits, fish and many many dogs all throughout my life; although I do have a slight fear of cats! 

So getting to help clients and their furbabies, even in the smallest of ways, is a huge satisfaction and what makes me love my role here! 

I love to take my boy Harvey for long walks across the fields and woods, throwing his beloved ball. 

There is really no love like the love of a fur baby! 

Kathryn has now returned from Maternity Leave after having a beautiful baby girl in December 2023.
