Meet the team
Having grown up in the Cotswolds I graduated from Liverpool in 2008 and then spent 6 years in mixed practice before deciding that a JV Partnership with Vets4Pets was the path that I wanted to pursue. I really enjoy the atmosphere of working inside the store, and seeing all the in-store animals as well as clients pets. I have an interest in cats, rats, dentistry and surgery but I'm also keen to develop my work with rabbits. I have a rescue cat named Phillip, he is very handsome but a bit of a piglet so his waistline is a constant battle!! I also have a horse and enjoy riding as often as time allows. Family holidays are spent skiing or relaxing in the sun.
Although I am the first vet in my family, I am certainly not alone in my love of animals. I was lucky enough to grow up in Devon surrounded by the family cats, rabbits, chinchillas and dogs. I graduated from Cambridge in 2007 and since this time have worked in small animal practices in Devon, Australia, London, and now Cheltenham. I appreciate the very special relationship an animal and owner have and believe animals can benefit everyone. Living in rented accommodation has meant it has sadly been impossible to keep any pets at home for the past few years. However the recent move into our own home with my partner James will hopefully provide opportunities to change this in the near future!
I grew up in rural Hertfordshire and although I was the first vet in my family, animals always featured strongly in my life. As a child I was always surrounded by dogs as my grandfather and mother bred and showed Irish Setters. Later mum made a change to breeding Labradors and I was fortunate enough to be given one of her pups in final year as an early graduation present. I have continued this line and we currently have Isa’s daughter and granddaughter at home. I believe strongly in producing well socialised, healthy and happy puppies.
I started to ride at age three and got my first pony at age seven. The “horsey” phase continues to this day although I don’t get to ride much as I would like as we now have a very active two year old and my free time is no longer my own!
I graduated from Liverpool Vet School in 2004; then completed an equine externship in Newmarket before moving into mixed practice. I have realised that my passion lies in small animal work and have been in small animal practice in Cheltenham for the past seven years. I am currently trying to finish off my Small Animal Medicine Post Graduate Certificate – going back to studying has been really enjoyable but a definite challenge especially when I was taking a very small person to lectures with me.
I qualified from The Royal Veterinary College in London in 2012 but grew up in Wales. We always had cats as a family and I have a particular soft spot for a cute ginger.
I moved to the area recently to join the Vets4Pets team, and am enjoying getting to know all our lovely pets and owners.
I have a keen interest in general medicine work, especially diabetes and looking after the more elderly cats.
I have two cats at home, my big gentle giant Maine Coon and my small ginger boy. Family life is quite busy currently with young twins.
I graduated from University Of Nottingham in July 2019. I have a keen interest in cardiology and cytology and I have a 1 year old cat called Luna. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and going to Cheltenham Races.
Hi my name is Carly, I am the Head nurse and one of the full time Registered nurses at the practice. I completed my diploma in Veterinary Nursing at Warwickshire college in 2012 but have recently joined the team back in August 2019. I have a little pomeranian called Ruby who is nearly two now.
I enjoy all aspects of the job but have a particular interest in medical nursing and caring for hospitalised patients.
Hi my name is Erin, I am one of the full time Registered nurses at the practice. I completed my BSC honours in Veterinary Nursing at Hartpury University in 2017 but have been part of the nursing team for nearly 6 years now. I am furthering my education by undertaking a certificate in Feline Nursing. I have my own little Jack Russell named Jaz, she is nine now but still running around creating mischief.
I love every aspect of my job as a Veterinary Nurse, you may have seen me in consultations weighing your lovely furry companions or when you have come to pick up your pet after having surgery with us. There is nothing better than sending your lovely animals home happy and healthy, for me there is no bigger reward.
I can't wait to see all of your four legged friends at the practice soon.
Hi, I'm Jo Proverbs and qualified with a BSc Degree in Veterinary Nursing Science in 2004. Since then I have been lucky enough to have enjoyed many aspects of the profession including teaching at Degree level and helping to train new students in practice.
I am passionate about consulting and enjoy nothing more than seeing lots of different patients and chatting to their owners about the health of their pets!
I have recently returned to Veterinary Nursing part time after having a family and I am delighted to be back in such a rewarding and progressive career.
Hi my names Mason I’m one of the student nurses here at Vet4pets Cheltenham. I’m currently studying FdSc veterinary nursing science at Hartpury University currently in second year. I thoroughly enjoy my time working here with the team and all of our lovely patients.
I’ve always wanted to do veterinary nursing so that I could help peoples pets recover from illness and so that all pets get the best treatment they can and deserve. ...How they react when they get picked from us at the end of the day will always put a smile on my face.
In my free time I love playing with my crazy 10 year old cocker spaniel Patch and observing my 6 year old leopard gecko Gilbert. I have a great passion for aquatic animals and love to watch how my tropical and salt water fish, especially my 4 month old fire eel Eelon and his clown loach friends interact and play with each other.
I look forward to seeing all of you in and around our practice.
Hi, I’m Carys and I am one of the student veterinary nurses currently studying for my degree at Hartpury University.
I grew up in the Cotswolds with my dog Misty, enjoying the countryside walks. I enjoy horse riding and playing netball in my spare time. I look for forward to seeing you and your pets when I come in.
Hi I'm Sammy, I have been working at Vets4Pets since the end of 2018.
I have always loved animals and grew up surrounded by rabbits, guinea pigs, cats and dogs. I’ve spent most of my life working with horses either at livery, caring for polo ponies or trail riding in the Andes.
Now I live with two adorable little cats and spend my days getting to meet all the lovely pets and owners that come in to see us!
Hi I’m Sophie I’ve recently started here at Vets4Pets Cheltenham, prior to this job I worked in an equine vet practice as their site manager for many years. I’ve had a passion for animals ever since I can remember! I’ve had many pets over the years ranging from cats, dogs, horses, gerbils and chickens. I currently have 2 very energetic dogs and also horse ride regularly! Being around animals all day long is an absolute dream for me and I can’t wait to meet your pets if or when they need us!
Hi I’m Helen and I started working for Vets4Pets in November 2019 since moving to Cheltenham and couldn’t have wished for a better team to work with.
I’ve had a passion for animals since a very young age and have had many pets over the years ranging from dogs, horses, rabbits, hamsters and fish! I now currently own a very fluffy and mischievous rabbit called Miso who loves to cuddle and hope to own many more fur babies in the future.
I can’t wait to meet all your pets at the practice if they need us!
