Meet the team
I have been the partner at Chatham since we opened in September 2011 and have been privileged to meet lots of fantastic patients and their owners since. I have a particular interest in surgery and gained my British Small Animal Association Certification in small animal surgery in 2019 after several years of study.
Outside of work, I enjoy landscape photography and mountain biking, so can often be found tramping the countryside of Kent looking for a good spot for either of these.
Kate and I have two boys who keep us busy, our bouncy yellow Labrador Winnie and two noisy guinea pigs.
I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London, in 2004. I went straight into mixed exotics and small animal practice, completing the Cert AVP (ZM) at the Royal Veterinary College and Edinburgh university in 2010.
Since then I have continued working in general and referral practice developing special interests in small mammals, tortoises, rabbit dentistry and surgery.
I have also spent time teaching, both vets and vet nurses.
Outside of work I am a busy Mum of two boys, one Labrador and two guinea pigs, In my spare time I enjoy drinking tea, reading, cooking, gardening and travel.
I have worked at Companion Care Chatham since I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2016. Becoming a veterinary surgeon was always my dream job and I am very grateful that I can enjoy it with such a friendly and supportive team.
In my spare time I try to stay active and have found a new love for home workouts. I have a range of artistic hobbies including origami, miniature painting and pyrography and spend most of my spare time trying to craft something new.
I qualified at Bari University, Italy, in 2016 and have been working as a general practitioner in the UK since 2017. Although I enjoy most aspects of veterinary medicine, I have a particular interest in surgery and have been working towards a surgery certificate to further expand my knowledge and skills in order to be able to provide the best possible care for our patients.
In my free time I enjoy going to the gym, travelling, and eating Italian ice cream!
My name is Lizzy and I have been nursing now for twelve years and qualified for nine.
I have a cat at home who I rescued when she was kitten. I love my job and caring for all animals but have a huge soft spots for cats in particular!
I qualified as a vet nurse in 2005 after studying Veterinary Nursing Science at university. I love nurse clinics as my favourite part of the job is helping and advising people with their pets. Weight clinics are my main area of interest but I hope to be expanding the range of nurse clinics we offer. Outside of work I enjoy going to the cinema, keeping fit (sometimes) and I never tire of talking about my beloved cat, rabbit and range of hamsters and/or gerbils!
I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2008 after studying at Hadlow College. I especially enjoy anaesthesia and inpatient care. When I’m not at work I’m kept busy by my two children and our cat Ollie. I also enjoy going to the theatre when I get a chance.
I started my veterinary nurse career back in 2006, where I started as a Kennel maid, then a year later I started my training to become a VCA - Veterinary care assistant. I then progressed to level 3 veterinary nurse diploma, which I completed in late 2015. Over the years I have worked in charity, emergency and hospital practices.
I joined the team at Chatham as an RVN in September 2017, where I have carried on my inpatient care and developed my skills in nurse clinics.
The area I enjoy the most is inpatient care, including care of senior patients.
I qualified in 2013 and quickly discovered a passion for emergency and critical care. I enjoy expanding my knowledge from nursing complicated cases, and bonding with my patients.
In my home time, I have two young children who I love to explore the world with.
I've been a Registered Veterinary Nurse since 2011. I enjoy all aspects of my work as no two days are the same. In my career I have gained two Certificates in Exotic Species and Emergency and Critical Care.
My name is Imogen. I am a Student Veterinary Nurse, in my final year of studying at the Kent School of Veterinary Nursing! I’ve been part of the team at Companion Care for almost 5 years now; being part of the team I have learnt, seen and been involved in so many incredible surgeries, medical treatments and of course the cuddles of all our client’s pet’s… I am looking forward to where my journey of Veterinary Nursing will take me next with my interest in hospitalisation care and exotics!
I qualified as a Veterinary nurse in 2005 after studying at London zoo for 2 years. I love all aspects of veterinary nursing but especially medical nursing and imaging. I am now Practice manager but still nurse from time to time.
Outside of work I enjoy going to the cinema, walking, gardening and looking after my cat, Lottie, 9 guinea pigs and hamster.
I joined the team at Chatham shortly after their opening, and have progressed to Head Receptionist. I have always had animals and currently own two large dogs and a cat, all rescues!
In my spare time I am normally found on the side of a rugby pitch watching and/or taking pictures of my three children or husband.
I first started with the practice eight and a half years ago, I have always had a passion for animals, especially dogs, and saw the opportunity as a dream job.
My name is Carly. I’ve worked in the veterinary industry since leaving school. First as a veterinary nurse before a break while my 2 children were young and returning to reception. I have had many pets over the years - terrapins, cats, dogs & horses.
I have been with the practice for 6 years and I have a passion for animals so helping animals is my dream job. I own a rescue ragdoll cat called Krystal who I adore. In my spare time I enjoy socialising with my family and friends and decorating my house which I share with my partner.
