I am the Director of Loughborough Vets4Pets. I qualified from the University of Bristol in 2003 with a degree in Veterinary Medicine and a degree in Zoology. I have worked in a variety of large and small animal practices across Leicestershire since qualifying and worked with cats, dogs, rabbits, cows, horses, sheep, pigs, alpacas, guinea pigs, chinchillas, marmosets and lots of other creatures. I started Loughborough Vets4Pets in 2013 and have greatly enjoyed working with the pets and people of Loughborough. I enjoy being a general practitioner and dealing with all sorts of pets and their different ailments. I do have a specific interest in treating skin and ear problems. And I have recently completed my post graduate surgery certificate and continue to increase my repertoire of complex orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery. This means we can offer more solutions for our patients without the need for referral. Working in partnership and transparently with our clients, to identify the best treatment plans and care is very important to me.

I joined the team of Veterinary Surgeons in February 2018. I graduated from University of Nottingham in 2014 . Prior to starting my role at Loughborough Vets4Pets I have had previous small animal experience at other vet practices in the East Midlands. At home, I have a border collie called Beau and a horse named Gamble. My outside interests include going for long walks with Beau, dining out and eventing my horse. My special interest at work is general medicine and what I enjoy most working at Loughborough Vets4Pets is working up cases and the contact with clients.

I started at Vets4Pets Loughborough in January 2021 during my final stages of the Student Veterinary Nurse training at the College of Animal Welfare, after a career change from being a Marine Biologist. Having recently passed my final exams I am now waiting to qualify as a Registered Veterinary Nurse.

I have just moved into our first home with my partner and our cat Suzi. I enjoy many aspects of nursing and am continually trying to build my skills and knowledge to provide the best care and advice for our furry patients and clients.

Outside of work I enjoy pottering in the garden, learning new crafts and seeing live music along with the odd DIY project around the house.

I’m currently a 2nd year student at Bottle Green College. I really enjoy inpatient care especially with the small exotics like guinea pigs. I have a degree in zoology and I am very passionate about conservation. I have been known to take home injured wildlife, especially birds, and rehabilitate them. I love to travel which has included volunteering in South Africa with penguins and sea birds. It’s here I met a veterinary nurse that encouraged me into practice. I have a cat called Ned and in my free time I enjoy walking my dog, Oscar.

I joined the Client Care Team in December 2017. At home I have two cats called Lynx and Peanut, and some tropical fish. I enjoy socialising with friends, watching films, old school gaming and going away on overnight fishing trips. The thing I most enjoy about working at Loughborough Vets4Pets is the cuddles I get with all the animals and meeting different types and breeds of pet.
