Meet the team
I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2007, and ever since have concentrated on small animal medicine and surgery. I enjoy all aspects of general practice, but I do have a special interest in surgery – both soft tissue and orthopaedics. I have worked across the UK, gaining experience in practices in both Scotland and England. My goal is to bring the discipline and best practices from these previous experiences to a warm and welcoming surgery delivering the highest standards of patient care. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my rescued pet - Minnie the Chihuahua. I am looking forward to providing the best quality care, and cannot wait to meet my new clients and their much loved pets!
I graduated from Glasgow Vet School in 2009, and have worked in Small Animal practice ever since. I have a particular interest in internal medicine, particularly feline medicine. I have worked in practice in Yorkshire, before returning to Scotland to work. I have gained some experience in exotic pets and have treated some very unusual animals! I love working with animals of all shapes and sizes but cats are my particular favourite. Outside of work I enjoy a variety of crafting related hobbies, including knitting, sewing and painting. I also have a cat of my own, a seven year old black and white called Echo, who keeps life interesting and entertaining! I am delighted to have taken this next step in my career as a vet by joining the team at Dumbarton and look forward to meeting your beloved pets and providing the best care for them.
I adored animals from an early age and knew I wanted to pursue a career with them in mind. I was delighted to fulfil this dream and graduate from Glasgow University Veterinary School in 2005. I have focussed on small animal first opinion practice since my graduation, including a period as an OOH emergency clinician. I enjoy all aspects of small animal practice but have a particular interest in surgery and emergency work. Additionally, I am trained and practice Veterinary acupuncture. When I am not working or spending time with my young family, I am an avid reader, a mediocre pianist and a semi-skilled baker. I joined the Vets4pets Dumbarton team in January 2019. I was quickly made to feel welcomed by staff and clients alike. It is really lovely to be part of such a close knit friendly team. I hope to be here for some time to come and look forward to meeting even more clients and caring for their beautiful pets.
Growing up on a local dairy farm, I developed a passion for caring for animals from a young age. This led me down the path to a career in veterinary medicine; graduating from Edinburgh Vet School in 2005. I worked for many years in mixed practice and equine practice in England before returning home to join Vets4Pets Dumbarton in January 2019. I enjoy all aspects of veterinary medicine and look forward to meeting clients and your much loved pets. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and pets as well as teaching Pilates and horse riding.
I have always worked with animals in some sort since leaving school. I went to college to study animal care when I left school, then I worked in a boarding kennels and cattery for just over two years and then into a veterinary practice for the past three and a half years. I graduated from college in Edinburgh in 2018. I love working with animals! I have a terrapin, fish and a sweet little cat called Norma.
I started at Vets4Pets Dumbarton in May 2016 when I was on placement as a student veterinary nurse. I then took on the role as one of the weekend receptionists in October 2016 whilst continuing my placement work. I graduated from Edinburgh Napier University in June 2018 as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. At home I have a labradoodle called Nova and a cat called Oliver who are lots of fun. I enjoy meeting all of our clients and their lovely pets and I am really lucky to be able to do a job that I love in a great practice.
I have always had a keen interest in animals from a very young age. When I left school I worked with clydesdale horses and highland cattle. I then went on to complete a course on animal care at Oatridge College, while attending college I volunteered at a local community farm. I have worked in Vets4Pets Dumbarton since we opened our doors in 2014, my role within the practice was Veterinary Care Assistant, I then carried out extensive training to become a Registered Veterinary Nurse which has lead me to my position of Head Veterinary Nurse. I am very lucky to work with a great team within a job that I love! Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and my daughter, our favourite thing to do is go on long walks and adventures with our wee dog Archie.
I have been working with the practice since 2017 when I started as a student on placement, I am looking forward to continuing my career here as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. I particularly enjoy carrying out nurse consults as it lets me get to know our patients, as well as, our lovely clients. I loved studying at SRUC Barony and at Edinburgh Napier Universities as I gained experience with many different animals. From dairy cows, to hedgehogs and everything in between. In my spare time, I like Munro bagging and running with my cocker spaniel Frankie.
I started studying veterinary nursing at SRUC Barony in 2018, spending 2 years in Dumfries, and joined the Vets4pets Dumbarton team in August 2020 to complete my final year student placement. I was then lucky enough to be offered a job here, and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in August 2021. I have wanted to work with animals for as long as I can remember, and I really like how every day in this job is different. At home, I have 2 cats of my own called Magic and Loki, who love to play and cause chaos! In my spare time, I like to go horse riding and spend time with friends and family. I am excited to continue working with such a great team and to meet all of your pets!
I started working at Vets 4 Pets Dumbarton in July 2019 after doing some work experience a few months before. I have always loved animals so I am definitely living the dream and I am so grateful to be part of such a wonderful team and meet so many lovely clients & pets. At home I have a Betta fish called Drogo and two lovable Bulldogs called Tye & Nala who keep me on my toes when I’m not at work!
Hi, I’m Terri, one of the veterinary care assistants at the practice and also a Zoology student at the University of Glasgow. I have been here since June 2021 and absolutely love caring for the animals and working with the amazing team here!

I look forward to continuing my progression working with animals and seeing what the future holds.
I have been working with Vets4Pets Dumbarton since June 2021 as a Veterinary care assistant which I love as I get to meet all of your lovely pets and support an amazing veterinary team. I have always wanted to work with animals and have been lucky to volunteer looking after horses at a local horse riding school in the past. In my spare time I am a Shotokan Karate Instructor and love to go hill walking with my Husky Loki.
Having had a love for animals ever since I was a little girl, when I found Veterinary Nursing it was love at first sight and I started studying it at SRUC Barony in 2019. I started placement at Vets4Pets Dumbarton in June 2021 for my third year and I’m absolutely loving it. Recently into that role as well! My pride and joys are a 10 year old Moggie called Smokey, a 14 week old German Shorthaired Pointer called Oscar and two Gerbils called Cashew and Chia! When I’m not studying or in practice I love getting stuck into a good book and I’m looking forward to going on hikes with Oscar when he gets bigger! I’m incredibly lucky to be studying, and now working with, such a lovely team of people and I can’t wait to meet more of our clients and their pets! I was also offered a job as a receptionist here and I’m very excited to get stuck in!
Hi, I'm Bernadette. I joined the team in Dumbarton in August 2019, I was a client at Dumbarton so it was an easy decision to join the team as a receptionist. Before joining vets4pets I worked in management within the contact centre world. I found many benefits in combining my people skills with my love of animals!
Outside of work I spend most days with my family and friends (I am blessed with 2 grown up children who have given me 4 grandchildren). When I have spare time I enjoy sewing and reading.
I have recently joined the Dumbarton Vets 4 Pets team in June. I feel like I have already learned so much and looking forward to learning even more. I have absolutely loved meeting all of your pets, it is my favourite part of the job! At home, I have a Pomeranian named Freddy who loves to cause mischief whenever he can. In my spare time, I enjoy going long walks with Fred and my partner James, I love going out for dinner with friends as well. I have recently adopted Frank, who was our practice pet. She has made a great addition to our family and have loved learning about a new animal.
