Meet the team
I qualified from Liverpool University in 2001, and initially worked in mixed practice before moving back to the North East and focusing on small animal practice. I enjoy the variety that being a GP vet brings and getting to know our clients and their pets.
At home I have a cat called Turbo and a standard Poodle called Peanut, who likes to help check round the sheep on our farm. I enjoy hiking, cycling and reading in my spare time.
Hi, I’m Elli one of the vets here at Vets4Pets Bishop Auckland. I recently graduated from the University of Liverpool where I developed my passion for small animal GP practice.
Outside of work I love going for long walks with my two greyhounds, Harley and Molly. I also have 3 cats, Hally, Daz and Spider.
I graduated at Ondersteport in South Africa in 2019. After doing my community service year, my husband and I immigrated to the UK. I have been working in small animal practice ever since.
In my personal time I enjoy reading, traveling and cooking.
Hello! I'm Caitlin and I'm so happy to have joined the lovely team here at Vets 4 Pets Bishop Auckland.
I began my journey nearly 10 years ago, and achieved my dream of qualifying as a veterinary nurse in 2016.
I love spending time with friends, reading and listening to live music.
I live at home with my husband, daughter and ginger cat Hallie. We also enjoy spending time with our family dog, Angus.
Hi my name is Rachel. 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.
I started my Veterinary Nursing training at Sunderland Vets4Pets in 2014 and qualified as an RVN in 2017. I have also previously worked at Vets4Pets Darlington, prior to recently starting at Bishop Auckland. I enjoy all aspects of nursing, but I have particular interests in medical nursing and wound management.
Outside of work I am kept busy looking after my own animals; a rabbit called Leah, a dog called Pablo and a horse called Lola.
Hi, I'm Niamh and I have always wanted to work within the veterinary industry. I started by getting an Extended Diploma in Animal Management in 2018 and went onto graduate from Harper Adams University in 2022 with BSc (hons) in Veterinary Nursing. Shortly after, I registered as an RVN and joined the team here at Bishop Aukland Vets4Pets. In my spare time, I enjoy scenic walks and reading.
My dog is a large crossbreed named Brontë who has an even larger character! Since moving to the North East, she has enjoyed frequent trips to the beaches followed by a snore on the sofa.
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.
Hi, my name is Amber. I`m originally from London and recently moved to the North East. I adore all animals and have a particular fondness for big cuddly dogs. I enjoy working on reception and saying hello to all the fur babies that come in.
In my free time you are more likely to find me with a book in my hand, or spending time with my family and friends. I especially love visiting my family in Switzerland and Turkey.
Vets4Pets Bishop Auckland is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!
