Meet the team
I qualified from Glasgow University in 2015 and started working in Ireland shortly after. I have just returned home to Ayrshire after spending 2 years in Northern Ireland working in mixed practice. Although I loved working in mixed practice my passion lies with small animals so I am looking forward to being able to focus my time on both medicine and surgery cases.
At home I have 2 dogs, Ruby the Lab and Tillie who I rescued from a local charity a few years ago.
I am excited to be back home and cannot wait to meet all our clients.
My name is Kate, I graduated from Edinburgh Dick Vet and worked for many years in small animal practice in Lancashire. I have recently returned to Scotland and am enjoying settling in Ayrshire.
I enjoy redecorating houses and walking my standard poodles on the beach in my spare time.

Hi I’m Ellie, one of the Registered Veterinary Nurses.
I qualified in July 2021 from Harper Adams University and have worked at Vets4pets Irvine since. I enjoy all aspects of nursing, as no day is the same.
At home, I have 2 black Labradors, Rhu and Jura who I adore.
Hello! I’m Becky and I’m currently a 3rd year veterinary nursing student at SRUC Barony.
I’ve been doing my placement here at Vets4Pets Irvine since May 2022 and will be graduating in August this year. I have 3 cats at home called Leo, Milo and Oslo as well as a very crazy cockapoo called Bowie.
One thing I’ve enjoyed a lot from placement is getting more experience working with rabbits and all the small furries and I would love to get additional training in their nursing/anaesthesia in the future!
Hi, I am Georgina and I am one of three partners and the practice manager here in Vets4Pets Irvine. I started at Vets4Pets Ayr in 2013 when I returned to work from maternity leave, prior to this I worked in retail management for nine years before having my son Benjamin. I currently work across both Ayr and Irvine and my role is to look after our team of 34 colleagues, we have a wonderful group of colleagues who care passionately for our patients and clients and I am honoured to work alongside them. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family and Cocker Spaniel 'Kingsley' (who genuinely is the King of the household)! I also have at home a rescue black cat called Panther who really is the sweetest girl.
I’m Niamh, I have been with Vets4Pets since early 2021 when I started as a client care advisor, since then I have worked my way up to senior client care and now to client services manager. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities this job has given me, and love seeing all of our clients old & new with their furbabies!
At home I have 3 dogs; my whippets Flynn and Ivy and my little Italian greyhound Perrie, who only has 3 legs.
Hi I’m Dom!
I started working at Vets4Pets in Irvine at the beginning of 2022 and I’m really enjoying my role. At home, I have two amazing doggies, my precious beagle Cloud and beautiful brown eyed, white Siberian husky, Sif. I spend a lot of my spare time with my dogs and my partner, Ben. We go on a lot of fun nature walks where we get to explore. I am a huge animal lover and I’m planning on becoming a Vet Nurse.
I'm Rachael, I have been working at vets4pets since the middle of June 2023. Having only ever worked in hospitality management this has been quite the career change for me. This role has already taught me so much and every day is a new experience. I am very much enjoying my new role.
In my free time I am an active Beagle mum and love exploring new places and going on adventures with my 4 year old pup Petra.
As well as having Petra I also adopt and take care of guinea pigs.
I’m Louise and I have been part of the team since November 2021. I have worked in customer service for around seven years so being able to pair this with my love for animals has allowed a real enjoyment in my job.
I have two dogs at home, Baxter who is a fluffy cockapoo and Bailey who is also a cockapoo but is 75% cocker spaniel so is extra bouncy!
