I knew, since the age of 5, that I was going to be a Vet. My passion for animals started with horses, then I witnessed a dog being hit by a car and was very lame, running away from me. I did not know how to help, which was very frustrating. I graduated University in Poland in 2005 and came straight to the UK. After several months of training and upgrading my qualifications, then two years post-graduation studies, I started working for Vets4Pets in Poole. I left Poole in 2015 to work closer to home at Vets4Pets Southampton. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there but an opportunity to open my own Practice, here in Cornwall, was too tempting to pass up. I have always wanted to run my own practice, and have had many lovely holidays in Cornwall, so to be able to live and work here is like a dream come true. Since we opened in January 2017, it has been challenging but very rewarding. I am very lucky to have a great team around me, making sure we offer the best care for our clients & their pets.

I have always had a love for animals, ever since I was young and owned a menagerie of pets including ducks, chickens, Guinea-pigs and dogs! 

Since leaving school I knew I wanted to work with animals so went straight to Bicton College where I studied Animal Management and decided to further my training as a Veterinary Nurse. After a lot of hard work I was lucky enough to study a foundation degree in Veterinary Nursing at the Royal Veterinary College in London. 

However, my heart has always belonged to the South West so after graduating in 2012 I moved permanently to Cornwall to live with my now husband, Gary, our Golden Labrador, Lola and Guinea-pigs Pumba, Timone and Simba. I love meeting such a variety of pets at Vets4Pets especially all the puppies that come to our puppy parties! 

In my spare time I love to meet up with friends and family and explore the beautiful Cornwall, with Lola.

Cornish born and bred, I love living near the sea; spending most of my time walking the local coastal paths and I wouldn’t change it for the world! Whilst I currently only have one cat, Leo, I plan on expanding my furry family in the near future. 

I am studying to become a registered veterinary nurse with Duchy College, alongside working with the amazing Vets4Pets team in Launceston, who I have already learnt so much from. Though challenging at times, I enjoy greeting the clients and meeting their pets. 

I hope to see you soon!!

Having previously worked in a busy office in Plymouth, I wanted to change career and work in an environment more centred around animal health and welfare, I moved to Launceston (with my two bunnies) and began volunteering for a local animal rescue charity.

Being their go-to vets for procedures; I found myself at Vets4Pets Launceston often enough to build a great relationship with the team, which is how I heard of this exciting position.

I have a keen interest in rabbits and researching about their behaviours, I am always happy to give advice and share what I have learnt with our interested clients or just anyone passing by.

It’s so nice to work within a team who similarly care so much about all animals; big & small.
