I graduated in 2012 from the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn Poland. I loves travelling and animals and got involved in a few projects abroad. I have worked alongside locals in India Tamil Nadu, in a charity campaign to help with neutering stray dogs and rabies prevention. Shortly after I has worked in a similar charity project in Spain where I was helping stray greyhounds which were abandoned after racing.
After moving to the UK, I took a 3 month intensive theoretical and practical course for Emergency and Critical Care in small animals and after locuming for a few years I decided that was time to settle and join the team at Vets4Pets Coventry Walsgrave, which was my favourite practice during my locum trips.
I love helping people and animals and absolutely adores German Shepherds.

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 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 of 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 (7 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 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 am now the Clinical Coach for the students here at Vets4Pets which means I support and train the Student Nurses in 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 and two crazy Tortie cats called Leeloo and Tiger. 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.

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 1 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.

Receptionist & Veterinary Care Assistant

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.

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!

I have had a love for dogs since I was a child. My father told me wonderful stories of his childhood spent with German Sheperds and so, I too developed a love of the breed and dogs in general. At home we have our GSD x Malinois who we love dearly. My original career was dental based, but I had the fortune to break into a Veterinary receptionist role some years ago and I am very much drawn to the Veterinary environment. I feel it is a privilege to both own and work with pets. They very much soothe my soul and make me happy, seeing their personalities and hearing about their antics from their owners.
