Meet the team
I graduated from the University of Life Sciences in Lublin, Poland in 2004. I worked in a few different small animal veterinary practices and hospitals before I joined Vets4Pets in 2019 after locuming here at weekends for a few years. I have an interest in surgery and diagnostic imaging and hold the BSAVA Certificate in Small Animal Surgery. Outside work I like to spend as much time as possible with my family and my rescue dog Woody.
I am an enthusiastic and dedicated Veterinary Surgeon that Qualified from the University of Agrico, Science and Veterinary medicine in Timisoara, Romania. Since graduating I have worked in Small Animal medicine and have developed and keen interest in canine and feline ophthalmology in which I'm currently completing and certificate in. I also like soft tissue surgery and small animal internal medicine. I consider myself and open minded person who loves outdoor hiking, travelling and motorcycling.
I have been in Veterinary Practice since leaving school in 2010 and did my Veterinary Nursing Diploma at Moreton Morrell College. I spent a few years at a big practice in Birmingham where I gained lots of experience with a wide range of small animals and exotic animals. I work full-time at the practice and you will most likely find me in the consultation room. At home I have an 3 year old son, plus 3 dogs; Keelo (Staffordshire bull terrier) Lola (Cross Breed) and Odon (deaf English Bull Terrier) who are no strangers to the practice and regularly come to work with me. I also have an assortment of cats (8 to be exact), I have this thing where I can't say no to an animal in need and end up bringing everything homeless home with me! I will help in every way I can and love making pets happy and healthy again.
I first started out in practice as an Animal Care Assistant in 2013, I thoroughly enjoyed this work and decided I wanted I become a Veterinary Nurse. I started my training in 2014, studying at Moreton Morrell College and a practice in Daventry. I qualified in 2017 and stayed at my training practice for several months afterwards. I moved to Vets4Pets in January 2018 and have thoroughly enjoyed it here with the team.
During my time doing nurse studies I have acquired 2 beautiful cats. My first was a lovely black and white stray kitten (who is 5 now) and my second was a tabby cat who came into the practice at around 10 days old. He needed a little help so I hand-reared him from the day he came in. He is 2 years old now and very cheeky! I also have a crazy young Spaniel who I love to take for long walks along the beach.
I have been in Veterinary practice since 2006 and qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2009. My career has taken me through many exciting roles, including emergency over night care, referral work with Veterinary Cardiologists and many years in general practice.
I have a young family now and they keep me on my toes! With a 4 year old daughter and a 1 year old son I come to work for a rest and to get my fix cuddling all the patients. At home I have a fish tank but no furry beasts of my own so I enjoy meeting all out patients. Outside of work I am a keen runner and gardener. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going for walks that almost always end in a pub lunch.
I studied at the University of Suffolk and completed my FDSC in wildlife management and conservation back in 2012. After finishing University I wasn't completely sure what I wanted to do going forward. It took a few years before I found myself at Vets4Pets Coventry Walsgrave but I have loved it from the moment I joined the team. The team here are very welcoming and will strive to give the best care possible for all of your pets.
I recently obtained my SQP qualification meaning I can dispense and advise on certain Veterinary medicines.
I try to bring a smile to everyone I meet and love to have cuddles with all the furry friends that visit the practice. I have a little black cat of my own called Kyo, he is very naughty at 5am when he wakes me up for breakfast by jumping at my door and meowing until I wake up, but I wouldn't change him!
I finished my studies at college in 2011 then started working at a vets in Birmingham, my home town, where I spent many years. Here is where I rescued my beloved little French Bulldog, Ronnie, who I love dearly. I have always loved animals ever since I was a little girl and I thrive on caring for them.
I started here at Coventry in 2015 as a Veterinary Care Assistant. I then went on a career break to see if there was anything else I'd be better at. I realised after nearly 2 years that it wasn't for me and I missed that close relationship with the clients and patients at the vets, so I returned back to Coventry in 2017, where I have thoroughly loved being back and seeing old faces.
Over the years in the veterinary industry I have acquired 3 dogs, 2 very cheeky little boys Harvey (Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Oscar (the crazy spaniel!) and Ronnie wiggle-bum, (my frenchie) and not forgetting my beautiful black and white cats, Tinkerbell and Alfie. I love to unwind at the gym and I enjoy horse riding when I get the chance.
