Meet the team
Following my graduation from the University of Thessaly (Greece) in 2013, I moved to Germany where I worked at a referral hospital for 3 years. Since 2017 I've been living in the UK and have worked in several first and second small animal practices across the country. I am a certificate holder in Ophthalmology and Diagnostic Imaging in small animals. Constant development of my skills and providing the best possible care to my patients has always been my priority. Outside of work I enjoy travelling and being with friends.
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 qualified in Portugal back in 2018 and came to the UK the same year looking for a different experience. I have worked in a small animal practice for 2 years before joining Vets4Pets in July this year. I am really enjoying working in this practice! I have a special interest in internal medicine and I am particularly keen on the medical management of chronic diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease and thyroid and adrenal conditions. In my free time I like to go outdoors, spend time at home with my two cats and cook for friends. I am looking forward to see and help your pets!
I graduated in 2017 from the University of Murcia (Spain). In 2018, I decided to move to the UK and gain work and life experience. I have been working in small animal practices since and I recently obtained a PgCert in Clinical Animal Behaviour from the University of Edinburgh. I am looking in the next two years to upgrade to PgDip and become a Behaviour Specialist. I enjoy travelling, music, sports and spending quality time with friends and family. I am looking forward to meeting you and your furry friends.
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 a young family with two small children, 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 (6 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.

Hi, I'm Laurissa. I qualified as an RVN in January 2022 from Moreton Morrell College. I've recently joined Vets4Pets to progress in my nursing career but I've been in practice for 5 years. I have two Collies at home, Merlin and Orla. I rehomed Orla from Dogs Trust in December 2021 after I had fallen in love with her when she was admitted at my previous practice for xrays.
Hi I'm Hannah. I qualified as an RVN in 2021 from Solihull College. At home I have a Springer Spaniel named Gretta, a cat called Lenny and 3 guinea-pigs. In my spare time I enjoy walking and crocheting.I am starting a certificate in Behaviour. I look forward to seeing your animals.
Hi, I'm Chloe. I qualified as an RVN in February 2019 from Solihull College. I enjoy assisting with ultrasound scans and nursing hospitalised patients. At home I have 2 crazy Jack Russells called Alfie and Macie. In my spare time I enjoy going to dog walks and spending time with friends and family.
I started here at Vets4Pets in May 2022 not long after qualifying as an RVN. I thoroughly enjoy my time here, the team are fabulous to work with. I have always had a passion for animals ever since I was very young. Since finishing Secondary school, I started college studying animal care/management and worked on a range of farms, kennels and catteries which I enjoyed. Veterinary Nursing is such a rewarding job and my main interests include wound management, inpatient care and surgical nursing/anaesthesia. I have a rescue dog called Theo, he is a patterdale terrier. He loves cuddles and long walks, so we spend most of our time exploring the outdoors.
My name's Kim, I'm 35 and live in Coventry with my husband and 6 dogs. I'm currently studying at Pershore college the Veterinary Nursing degree and on placement at Vets4Pets Coventry as an SVN. I have an interest in working with stray and homeless animals and would be keen to work closely with Street Vet in the future.
Hi there, my name is Ellie, I am 26 years old and in my first year studying the BSc (Hons) degree in Veterinary Nursing at Moreton Morrell College. I'm the proud owner of a 3 year old maltipoo, Luna, and a syrian hamster called Remy. Remembering a time when I have not loved and been interested in animals is impossible and I have cared for many animals over the years; dogs, cats, rabbits, rats and hamsters. It has always been my life long dream to become a nurse and be part of a team that makers a major difference in improving the health and welfare of animals in Veterinary practice. In my spare time I love baking, making crafts, browsing charity shops and going on long country dogs walks.
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.
Student Veterinary Care Assistant
My name is Cristina and I am the Practice manager and Joint Venture Partner at Vets4Pets Coventry Walsgrave. I have been around animals from a very young age and years ago I started rescuing animals in Romania and discovered my passion and love for them. In 2013, when I moved to the UK I knew I wanted to work with animals and got a job at the clinic as a receptionist. I slowly worked my way up and 3 years later got the job of my dreams as a Practice manager. This is living proof that everyone can achieve what they want if they work hard and with passion. In my spare time I love spending time with my three rescued cats, Phoebe, Joey and Blue and with my two dogs, Didi and Buddy. When I'm not at work I love travelling the world, meeting new people and discovering new cultures. I look forward to seeing you and your furry friends at the practice.
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 have 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 and a Labradoodle called Loki.
I have been working in the Veterinary environment since 2015. Whilst working in my previous practice I gained a Level 2 Animal Nursing Assistant qualification. Prior to this I owned a mobile farm where I took various livestock into schools and other establishments in Coventry and the surrounding areas teaching children and adults about their care and needs. I have lots of animals at home including a dog called Flossy, 2 cats, Parsley and Willow and a few chickens. I am currently enrolled on a level 3 dog behaviour course. I spend my spare time caravanning with my husband and working on my allotment, growing a wide variety of fruit, vegetables and weeds!
Hi, I'm Taylor. I have worked in the Veterinary industry for around 2 years now. I enjoy working with animals because every day is different! I also have 4 dogs and 1 cat myself. In my spare time I love taking my little dog Narla on hikes and my most recent adventure with her was a week trip in a camper van around the NC500! I have a love for the outdoors and hope to travel to as many places as possible. Always take the scenic route!
Hi, my name is Lauren. I'm 22 and I am currently studying to be a vet at Nottingham University. I am a big animal lover however I have a guilty spot in my heart for dogs. I own a cocker spaniel called Poppy who is my life and joy. I am enjoying carrying out my degree and can't wait to become a Vet and help all my future patients.
I have been working in the Veterinary environment since 2010. I love working with animals I have grown up with dogs. I have 2 dogs, Sid (the black one) is a rescue and the other one is Stella. They are always together and sometime I find them in the same basket. They always welcome me home from work with a toy and a wagging tail. In my spare time I like to craft, mainly making cards. I like walking and a game of bingo.
