Meet the team
I qualified from Glasgow Vet School in 2000 and have been working in small animal practices in Ayrshire since then.
I have been a partner at Vets4pets Ayr since 2011 and Irvine since 2017 and now excited to be a partner in Kilmarnock. I aim to provide an excellent standard of veterinary care to our patients and look forward to meeting you.
I enjoy all aspects of my work but have a particular interest in all types of surgery and rabbit medicine. Outside work I enjoy riding my horse Obi and relaxing at home with my dogs Blue a red collie, Beryl the merle collie, Harry the rescue cat and my ever expanding collection of chickens!
Hi, I'm Caolan! I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2011 and I’ve worked in Scotland since. I worked in mixed practice for three years before deciding to concentrate on small animal practice.
I have a particular interest in soft tissue surgery and I`m In the process of completing a surgical certificate.
I live in South Ayrshire with my Wife, daughter and two small terriers. Outside of work I enjoy hillwalking and mountain biking.
I originally worked for Vets4Pets in Ayr where I qualified from in 2014.
Since then I have worked at The Royal Dick School of Veterinary Medicine in Edinburgh where I got experience in all areas of the hospital through ICU, surgical/medicine wards and exotics. I have also worked for local veterinary practices carrying out tasks such as monitoring anaesthetics, nurse consultations and patient care.
I then started locum work mostly around Vets4Pets surgeries which gave me a great insight into how each individual surgery works. I really enjoy running nurse clinics as I find them really rewarding and feel like it builds up a really good relationship with both clients and patients. At home I have 3 collies who I love spending time with and taking walks to the river for some fun.
Hello. I have just recently joined the Vets4Pets Team in Kilmarnock as Clinical Nurse Manager. I started my Veterinary Nursing Career over 30 years ago. I trained then worked in a local Mixed Practice, University of Glasgow, Small Animal Hospital, one of the very first Vet4Pets practices (in Bramley, Leeds) and for the last 20 years back at the University of Glasgow, Small Animal Hospital where I was Senior Nurse in the Intensive Care Unit. Along the way I have gained further qualifications which have enhanced my knowledge and love for the job I do. Over the years I have witnessed the progression of Veterinary Medicine and how it has evolved to be able to help our much loved pets who become part of our families. I thoroughly enjoyed my job in the referral hospital but felt it was time to come back into first opinion practice and I am very happy to be part of a Vet4Pets practice again. I am looking forward to meeting all the Vets4Pets Kilmarnock clients and their pets.
Hi, I am Georgina and I am one of three partners and the practice manager here in Vets4Pets Kilmarnock.
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 Ayr, Irvine and Kilmarnock and my role is to look after our team of 54 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 have been with Vets4Pets since 2015 when I started at the Ayr practice. I have qualified as an Animal Care Assistant and worked my way up to my position now as client services manager. I just love meeting and greeting all our clients and their fur babies. Getting to know the patients is the highlight of the job and all the cuddles sure are a perk!
At home I have a cat, Barney and a new pup, Balor. My daughter Louisa has recently turned 1 and loves our new addition to the family, we are so excited to watch them grow together.
Hi I'm Lorna. I joined the team here at Kilmarnock in February 2015, as an Animal Nursing Assistant. At the end of 2022 I took on the role of Practice Manger but I missed the hands on work with all of your lovely pets so have stepped back to my Nursing Assistant position as of July 2023.
Having been brought up on a farm, I have always been around and worked with animals. I then finished secondary school to work in a mixed practice for 10 years before Joining the Vets4Pets Team.
I find my job very rewarding and I love all aspects of what I do.
When I am not at work I am kept very busy at home with my 10 year old son and my Chocolate Labrador Luna, who loves to strike a pose for our Facebook page. In my spare time (if lucky enough) I enjoy helping my dad out on the farm.
I look forward to meeting you and your pets.
Hi, I am Natalie.
I started with Vets4Pets in 2014 just after the practice opened as a Veterinary Care Assistant but as the years went by, I discovered it was being a Client Care Advisor I really love. The best parts of my role are talking to our clients, meeting their pets and watching them grow up - in some cases this has been from birth!
I enjoy working with the rest of the Kilmarnock Vets4Pets family as we are a great team.
When I'm not working, my time is spent with my daughter doing various activities and hobbies, caring for my dad and if I can spare any time at all between all of this, I help out with animal rescues.
Currently in our very pet friendly home we have a few rescue pets, our two dogs are Polly and Mimi, our African grey parrot, Jamie and 3 cats. That's all... at the moment!
All through my life I have grown up with various pets and always had a passion for caring, helping and working with animals. As soon as I could I got a job working with animals whilst still at school and since then I have always worked in the veterinary world as it's so rewarding and always different.

Hello, I'm Carmine!
I first started working with Pets At Home Kilmarnock in 2014 and this is where I met my partner, James.
I was then lucky enough to join the in store Vets4Pets team in 2015 as a Client Care Advisor.
I love my role, meeting new people and their pets, but the best part is that no two days are the same and everyday I learn something new.
I took our cat Loki (pictured with me) home from work in 2017 and since then he has been a fantastic little house cat and welcomed and became best friends with our daughter from the minute we brought her home.
Outwith work I'm normally busy with my family, out on country walks or finding different activities to do.
Hello, I'm Lisa. I recently joined Vets4Pets Kilmarnock as a Client Care Advisor in April, 2022.
I absolutely love animals. I'm over the moon to have started working with them as it has always been my dream to do so. As it is my first time in a veterinary setting it's all new but I am very lucky to be working with such a lovely / supportive team.
Outside work I love spending quality time with my family and friends. I have three kids who keep me on my toes. We have a cat, Amber hamster, Ruby and latest addition our puppy Millie who we love going on adventures with.
I am looking forward to meeting all the lovely clients and their furry babies!
