I spent my first 7 years after graduation working at a busy small animal practice in Hampshire. I was then offered the opportunity to help set up a new veterinary clinic 'Crown Vet' in India, so I moved to Mumbai which was an amazing experience and I was actually the first non-Indian vet registered with the Indian veterinary board. 
 
After India I moved back to London for a year, then decided that I would trial island life and moved to the beautiful island of Bermuda which gave me a taste for island living.  This set me up for island life in Guernsey where I have been busy living and working here for the past 4 and a half years. Clinically I really enjoy wound management and dermatology.  In my free time I love going to the gym, as well as being member of the Ink drinkers book club and travelling.  I look forward to continuing to meet and treat the pets that belong to this very special community in Guernsey.

My name is Lucy, I joined the team at Vets4Pets in January 2022. I have always had a growing passion for animals! I first fell in love with animals when I came home to my first dog, Gala. She is now 16 years and going strong! All through my school years I knew I wanted to work with animals and had my heart set on achieving this goal, so when I saw this opportunity I couldn't give it a miss. I'm always busy at home looking after my three dogs, two rabbits, four fish and my cat Max, as well as helping out at the stables where I ride. I am extremely grateful to be working with such a loving and caring team and am excited for what the future holds.
