I graduated from Bologna's University (Italy) in 2012 and I then went on doing a Master Degree in Animal Reproduction which I finished in 2014. Me and my husband moved to the UK in 2015 and I have been working in small animal practices ever since.

I have obtained my Oncology GP-Cert in 2016 and I moved to Crawley in July 2020 to start as the Head Vet for the practice. I started a further qualification in Diagnostic Imaging in 2021 which I should achieve in 2023

In March 2022 I became Joint Venture Partner and I now run the practice together with James Fowler MRCVS and Emma Clarke RVN.

I have a 3 year old son and a 10 months old daughter. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and my 2 Maine Coons.

I graduated from the Agrarian University of Havana in Cuba. Since then I have been working in small animal practice. I have had the opportunity to work in a wide range of different small animal practices in Cuba, Spain, and more recently in the UK which has allowed me to gain a valuable experience as veterinary surgeon

I enjoy all aspects of being a small animal veterinary surgeon, but I have a particular interest in emergency medicine and critical care, surgery, and internal medicine.  I have just finished a postgraduate certificate in emergency medicine and critical care, achieving the qualification of Pgcert in Small Animal Practice

In my free time I like travelling, dancing and spending time with family and friends.

I completed the RCVS NHS Edward Jenner Leadership program in 2020 and have been accredited the NHS Academy Award in Leadership Foundations for Veterinary Professionals. I enjoy sharing experiences with colleagues and clients and am also a RCVS VETGDP adviser (coach for recent Veterinary Graduates).

I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2011 after completing a BSc (Hons) in veterinary nursing and practice administration. I have always been passionate about animals and being a veterinary nurse is my dream job. Being a head nurse comes with challenges of its own but these challenges I embrace. I am also a clinical coach meaning I train the student veterinary nurses. As of this year I have taken on the role of JVP (joint venture partner) which will allow for greater flexibility and management. I love all aspects of my job in particular medical nursing, geriatric nursing and rabbit nursing. I have completed my rabbit nursing Diploma and have undertaken the emergency and critical care nursing diploma. At home I have 2 naughty cats Zig and Zag, and 2 spoilt indoor mini lops Dolly and Belle. I frequently take home puppies and kittens to hand rear.

I grew up in Southern Ireland and was extremely fortunate to share my wonderful childhood with animals of all different shapes and sizes! I trained in Edinburgh, Ireland and England qualifying in 2001. After which, I went travelling around the world and was lucky enough to work in Morocco. Since then I worked a various places included the RSPCA in Putney.

 I was lucky enough to be employed by Vets4Pets 2.5 years ago on a part time basis. I love all aspects of my job and have a special interest in animal welfare. I very much enjoy caring for our inpatients and do enjoy the buzz of a busy prep room!

When I am not at work I am exercising by my two dogs, Otter a cheeky border terrier who came from my work at the RSPCA and Moose, a wonderfully loyal Labrador. We also have a lovely pony called Foresta and Weasel, our little domestic short haired cat who also came from the RSPCA in Putney. She is adored by the children and is lucky enough to be the only animal allowed upstairs!I enjoy exercising when I am not being mum; I especially love going for 5-10km runs. The dogs get super excited when the trainers go on!

Before starting my role as a veterinary care assistant, I previously worked for a year as a dog walker/pet sitter. It was this role that made me really pursue a career in animal care. So far, I have learnt so much since joining Vets4Pets and I am now studying to be a Veterinary Nurse and hope to be qualified in 2024.

At the moment, I have a house rabbit called Willow and two pugs called Max and Ozzy.

I'm fairly new to working in the veterinary industry, I started at Crawley Vets4Pets just under a year ago, after working in a care home for the elderly for many years.

I'm proud to be part of the friendly, close knit team here at Crawley, my favourite part of the job is seeing the animals, and sneaking in the odd cuddles! The highlights have to be holding new-born puppies and kittens.

I'm mum to 2 humans, 2 cats, and a rescue dog, so my spare time is take up looking after them all.

I moved back to Crawley in 2021 after spending 15 years in Alberta, Canada. It's been quite the culture shock and everything seems so small!!

I spent time working in a doggy-day care and animal rescue which gave me a passion for working with animals. I got to witness the best and worst parts of working with rescue dogs which included watching one momma give birth to 6 healthy pups, and the sadness of the longer term residents who struggled to find a home.

I have had 2 rescue dogs Cas and Chevy, and fostered a few others.

Working with Vets4Pets is fun and challenging. I enjoy getting to know our clients and their pets and I will always be available to give your animal love, snuggles and reassurance.

Outside of work I enjoy being creative; Mainly photography and painting. I have a (un)healthy obsession with true crime and think I have seen all of the documentaries on Netfilx at least once so now I've moved on to podcasts.

Hi!

I have two sons so I work part time as a receptionist - I am super organised and love helping people, so the position is perfect for me; I actually started working at Vets4Pets Crawley in 2018, left to have my sons in 2020 and came back in 2022 because I missed it so much.

I love animals, especially rodents, reptiles and exotics. I have had hamsters, rats, a tarantula and even a tortoise in the past; I would love a bearded dragon one day. I currently have two giant African land snails named Sybil and Cecil; snails are actually hermaphrodites, but I think of them as a boy and girl.

In my spare time, when my children finally go to bed, I like to practice my knitting and either play my Nintendo Switch or watch a lot of Netflix!

I have recently joined the team at Vets4Pets. Before starting my role as a veterinary receptionist I worked part time at a beauty salon. I have also been busy raising my family of 3 children.

My time is taken up by my big rescue dog Tommy, who likes to take me on long walks.

COVID UPDATE
Important please read. 
 
The majority of our team are now double vaccinated and the nature of our work still means close contact is inevitable. 
 
Consultations 
Up until now we have not routinely invited clients into the consultation room due to the small space (in exception to nurse consultations), however we are now in a position to trial the introduction of owners back into the consult room during their consult times. We would therefore ask that all our owners wear face masks while they are in the consult room, we would accommodate owners that provide evidence to the exemption of a face mask as well.
 
Reception screens
Our screens are staying up in reception. On either side there is a microphone - please speak into them otherwise our receptionists struggle to hear you! 
 
We will continually review the situation, however we may have to make further changes at short notice.
 
We want to thank you for your continued support, understanding and patience. It has been a difficult time for everyone including the veterinary profession
