Meet the team
I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2009 after studying a diploma course at pershore college. I have worked in a number of practices including first opinion and referral work. I have worked as a permanent member of the team and also previously been a locum along side veterinary pharmacy work. I also have a crazy Labrador called Duggee and a cat I rescued whilst she was pregnant called April.
During my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family and having long walks with Duggee!
I joined Leamington Spa Vets4pets in December 2018. I very much enjoy working with this team, they are friendly and extremely passionate about providing the best care for every patient.
Previously I worked at an RSPCA hospital, here I had the opportunity to nurse a vast array of wildlife. During my time at RSPCA I gained invaluable surgical nursing experience, and went on to qualify as a veterinary nurse. I completed me advanced diploma in surgical nursing with the PDSA. I became Head Nurse, and was privileged to lead a dedicated nursing team focussed on providing free veterinary care to poorly animals.
Seventeen years later I took a career break and moved to Shanghai, China with my family. During our free time, we enjoyed travelling to different countries within Asia. I have in the past taken on 3 rescue dogs, mostly orthopaedic cases, having nursed them back to health I just had to take then home! Most recently I have taken on a sweet one eyed hamster called Jack Sparrow. I have a keen interest in animal welfare and have helped to successfully re-home many animals during my nursing career.
A qualified RVN since 2008 from Morton Morrell College after doing veterinary nursing and HNC in Animal Welfare and business management.
I live in rural Banbury with my husband and a house full of animals, recently I have taken on four rescue chickens and Bosworth the Saluki puppy. All of which keep me very busy.
My main interests are running, I am currently training for my first marathon, I am also a long standing member of the Warwick Air Cadets which I have been with since the age of thirteen. I also take a huge amount of enjoyment through horse riding and walking
I am hoping to travel to China and Africa within the next two years, I’m not the best traveller but the need to see these two countries is on my bucket list.
I’m a Student veterinary nurse, due to graduate in 2021! Being able to help and work with animals has been a dream of mine from a very young age. Being a student veterinary nurse is such a rewarding job, I’m able to help make a positive difference in animal’s lives daily and I couldn’t be happier with the career path I chose. At home I have my cat Phillip and two bunnies Munchie and Anna. I am definitely known for being a crazy cat lady, I have a keen interest in cat behaviour and managed to help vet4pets Leamington with their cat friendly clinic accreditation.
The team at Vets4Pets are a pleasure to work with and extremely supportive with my training. I plan to expend upon my knowledge on cat behaviour and continue advocating cat friendly nursing.
I'm not originally from the veterinary background my managerial experience comes from retail and hospitality sectors. I have been here since the practice first opened its doors in 2017, during this time I have very much enjoyed the new adventures and challenges that have come into practice. Every day in a veterinary practice can be completely different and that’s what makes it so interesting.
I am also very fortunate to work with a team of professionals that pride themselves on always striving for the next challenge whether this is focussing on our next accreditation or providing the upmost experience. This can involve anything from bringing your puppy in, to the most intense and heart breaking situations. I believe strongly in the ethos of putting pets first and our team promote this by their actions every day.
My husband and I have a young daughter who currently runs rings around our equally mischievous dog Iris, who is now 6 years old, and much like the vets, every day is different with them both. We rehomed Iris from the dog’s trust we believe she is a boxer cross, she has a story to tell but unfortunately like many rescues we will never know it.
In my spare time, when I’m not refereeing my little girl and dog, I love getting cosy on the sofa and binge watching a good series. We also love booking adventures with friends and family holidays away.
Animals have always been a huge part of my life and I’ve always been surrounded by them growing up. I did work experience at companion care in Stratford so felt right at home getting a job here at Leamington Spa after that. At the moment I have 3 pets: 2 cats called Pickle and Woody and a Chihuahua called Rambo.
I rehomed Rambo in August 2018, he was incredibly anxious and overwhelmed by the world but I am pleased to say, with lots of love and patience he is now living his best life and thriving with me and my family.
In my spare time I’m also studying equine massage and rehabilitation. In the future I hope to pursue this and I look forward to the opportunities this will open up for me.
I love to use me weekends for adventures and holidays! I will always come back in on a Monday with a story from my latest shenanigans. My favourite so far was when I decided to swim a lake and completed Derwent Water in 2 hours 10 minutes.
I love being a part of the Vets4pets team and enjoy meeting and getting to know all of our clients and their pets!
My previous background was in various purchasing and administrative roles. Now, having finally returned to live in Leamington, I took this opportunity to change emphasis, one including animals and working alongside people who also put animals first.
From an early age animals played a large part in my life, the majority being cats. Most rescues or strays, some with medical needs and all with a lot of character!
I currently have 3 cats at home, Amber, Bella both domestic shorthairs and Clive our demanding Bengal! I also sponsor Toby who for several reasons, cannot be re-homed.
My free time is split between reading, looking after our granddaughter and, spending time with extended family. My husband and I also like to travel and visit historical sites.
I adore working in Vets4pets Leamington Spa as we have a friendly and supportive team who are all pet mad! The best part is meeting and greeting all the lovely pets and owners who come to see us.
Vets4Pets Leamington Spa is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!
