Meet the team
My name is Lisa and I am one of the vets. I qualified back in 2010 from Royal Dick Veterinary School in Edinburgh. After graduation, I moved back home to Durham to begin my career in mixed practice. I have worked in several small animal and equine practices in the area and also spent a year working in Australia.
My grandfather was a vet so I have grown up with a love of animals. I loved looking after animals and riding horses growing up. At home I am Mum to Harry and my fur baby George the Labrador.
My name is Sarah. I am one of the Veterinary Nurses (RVN) here at Bishop Auckland and I have enjoyed the last 3 years of working and training here. I have always had a passion for working with animals and have an interest in the endocrine system and cardiology. In the future I hope to do my advanced certificate in medical nursing and emergency and critical care.
I have a Bichon Frise called Rupert and in my spare time I enjoy walks and travelling.
Hi my name is Lisa.
My nursing career started in 2003 at a veterinary hospital in Middlesbrough where I completed my training to become a qualified nurse. In 2008 I moved to Vets4pets (Durham) where I spent the next 11 years. Following a short break in private practice I returned to Vets4pets this time joining the lovely team at Bishop Auckland in Dec 2018.
I have a keen interest in small furies especially rabbits and guinea pigs and I am currently undertaking my city and guilds certificate in exotics.
I have acquired lots of rescue pets over the years and I currently own 6 rabbits, countless Guinea pigs, a one eyed pug, a 13 year old Labrador, 2 tortoises and 2 cockatiels.
I am looking forward to meeting you all.
Hi my name is Rachel. I’m currently training as a student veterinary nurse here at Bishop Auckland whilst studying for a foundation degree in veterinary nursing. I have always loved animals and was always the kid with lots of pets! I particularly have a passion for rabbits and guinea pigs. In my spare time you’ll find me enjoying a nice long walk with my dogs.
Hi my name is Emma and I have just recently joined the practice, I am currently awaiting to qualify as a registered veterinary nurse this year and I am very excited to qualify into my dream job. I love all animals great and small and have a rescue mastiff cross who is always keeping me on my toes. My favourite role of being a nurse is providing exceptional inpatient care and providing lots of TLC and furry cuddles. Outside of work I enjoy the outdoors, long walks and horse riding. My other passion is travelling which I try to do as much as possible and enjoy visiting my extended family in Australia.
Hi there, my name is Becky. After gaining a national diploma in Animal management, I have worked with a wide variety of animals and pets for several years now. Over the years I've had lots of pets including reptiles, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, gerbils, and fish. I'm also passionate about helping wildlife anyway I can. I currently share my home with my husband, our house rabbit Baxter, and our Bichon frise Ozzy. I enjoy welcoming clients and their pets into the practice, and seeing all that goes on to keep your pets happy and healthy. In my free time I am often found gardening, spending time with my fur babies, or enjoying a good book or film.
Hi. My name is Rebecca (Becs) and I am the newest member of the client care team here at Vets4Pets in Bishop Auckland. Having grown up on a farm I have an interest in all animals great and small and currently keep a menagerie including cows, sheep, two horses and two Llamas! My greatest passion however is for my two dogs. I love spending time with Alice our big, boisterous Newfoundland X and Scout, our gentle smooth Collie who is very good at agility.
I thoroughly enjoy working on reception, especially meeting all the fur babies that come through the door. I am here to advise and assist you in any way I can and hope to make your experience at the vets as stress free as possible.
