Meet the team
I am Almu, a veterinary surgeon from Spain. I graduated from the University of León in 2015 and went on to work in a couple of veterinary pratices in Spain before deciding to take an internship in a referral hospital to deepen my knowledge, mainly in internal medicine and diagnostic imaging. After this, I decided to move to the UK to take advantage of new opportunities to improve as a veterinary surgeon and achieve new goals. I moved to Cornwall one year ago where I started working in a referral hospital. In January, my partner and I moved to Guildford which is when I joined Vets4Pets Byfleet where I really enjoy working with the team and trying to offer the best of me to all clients and their lovely pets!
I have have had a passion for medicine since I was young and I grew up surrounded by dogs and cats, so it was not a surprise when I decided to study veterinary medicine, with special interest in internal medicine, critical care and diagnostic imaging.
I spend my spare time with my partner and my two rescue cats, Audrey and Tina, and often go back to Spain to spend time with my family.
I qualified as a Registered Veterinary nurse in 2013 and I have worked here at Byfleet Vets4Pets since we opened in March 2016. I did my nurse training in a busy Orthopaedic referral practice where my love for nursing grew. Before training as a Veterinary nurse I completed my Bsc (Hons) in Animal Management and worked in a cattery for 5 years whilst I was studying.
Since qualifying to become a Veterinary Nurse I have undertaken various courses in behaviour, dentistry, anaesthesia and pet bereavement. However, the course I am most proud of is my Certificate in Feline Nursing.
When completing my Certificate in Feline Nursing I changed a few things around the practice for example the cat waiting area is now separate from the dogs and they have their own parking tables, and the way we approach and handle our feline patients. By doing this Vets4Pets Byfleet was awarded the ISFM silver level cat friendly practice award. This means that we think about cats as individuals and we try and make their visit to us as stress free as possible. I have a real passion for cats and think they are amazing creatures, my colleagues even call me the cat whisperer (better then crazy cat lady!).
When I am not busy working or studying I enjoy spending time with my husband Simon and our 5 year old son Jack who keeps us on our toes. We also have an 11 year old collie cross Bobbie who still thinks he’s a puppy and my two beautiful cats Rex (5 year old, DSH) whom I hand reared from around 3 days old after he was found on the side of the road and Evie (1 year old, Birman x) whom I recused when she was bought into the practice as a stray.
I love all aspects of Veterinary Nursing and believe I have the best job, and in 2018 I was awarded The Best Team Player award with in the Vets4Pets vet group.
Hi! I'm Jess and I qualified as a registered veterinary nurse in July 2019 after finishing my degree (BSc Hons) in veterinary nursing. I have a keen interest in exotic animals (especially guinea pigs!) alongside a love of theatre and ward nursing. I started out working as a zoo keeper and decided that veterinary nursing was my passion, leaving to start my degree in 2016. I started here at Byfleet shortly after this as the student nurse. At home, I have a troublesome three legged cat called Tess as well as a three legged hamster called Tilly. I look forward to seeing you all in practice!
Vets4Pets Byfleet 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!
