Born and brought up in London, I was determined to be a vet for as long as I can remember! My earliest memories are of playing with our family spaniel. I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 2009 and have worked in small animal practice ever since, mostly in London, but spent 4 years volunteering and working in Australia and South East Asia. Having now settled in East London/Essex I decided to open Vets4Pets in Chadwell Heath in early 2014, which I have enjoyed so much I decided to take over Vets4Pets in Newbury Park Ilford in 2017 and now Vets4Pets Loughton in 2018! I thrive on providing a fantastic service to our clients and the best possible care for all patients.My special interest is in surgery, and have recently completed an RCVS certificate. At home I have an elderly Cavalier King Charles, Cerys and two rescue cats ''the boys'' Gordon and Bagheera. When I'm not working I can usually be found walking in the forest, at the gym or exploring overseas. I am now part of CBBC's Pets Factor team!

I graduated in 2014 from the University of the West Indies in Trinidad, where I lived and worked in a mixed practice. After meeting my husband in a BBC’s ‘Death in Paradise’ sort of scenario, I exchanged one island life for another. Before Joining the Loughton team, I worked for a few years at an independent small animal practice in the lush south west county of Wiltshire. 

My professional interests include internal medicine and imaging, as well as, meeting and supporting pet parents. When I’m not savoring the aroma of puppy breath or chirruping with friendly felines, I enjoy long country walks, mosaic and glass art and gin tasting!

Hi, I’m Elsa. I graduated from Liverpool Vet School as my second degree, prior to this I also studied at the Royal Veterinary College. I’m from the Midlands but moved back down to London with my partner after finishing vet school and have been working in Essex since. I enjoy all aspects of being a vet but have a keen interest in surgery.

When I’m not working you’ll find me playing tig with my young cat, Django or happily cooking away in the kitchen.
