I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College, London in 2003. I worked in the Birmingham area in small animal practice for two years before I began working as a locum all over the UK to gain experience. I then worked and travelled around Australia and New Zealand for 2½ years - this was an amazing experience which allowed me to gain invaluable insight into differing clinical practices. I enjoy being a vet general practitioner, especially the close interaction and relationship between vet and patient. I love providing an excellent service to all my clients and patients - both old and new. Outside of work I am a sports enthusiast, love to read and I am also a movie buff. My rescued Rottweiler, Beyonce, enjoys coming to work with me regularly!

I was born and raised in a beautiful city on the sea in Sicily, Italy and I graduated from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Bologna in October 2018. When I was still a student I had the opportunity to practice both with small animals in reference structures, and with large animals at various farms. 

After graduation I had a volunteer experience at a small animal clinic in my home town, which ended when I decided to move to the UK to test myself in a different life and work context than in my country.

After only one month from my arrival in the UK, I found what I wanted more than anything else, namely working with an adorable and professional team like Companion Care / Vets4Pets. My great passion is the clinic, with a particular interest in endocrinology, but I also have a strong passion for soft tissue surgery. I am also clinical coach to our student nurses, helping to train & assess them.

During my free time I love travelling, reading, and being an Italian I love cooking for my friends! But more than anything else, I dedicate my free time to Gina, my beloved little dog!

I was born & raised in Alicante, in Spain. I studied veterinary medicine in Galicia, where I graduated from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 2019. During university, I volunteered & worked inside two veterinary referral hospitals of small and exotic animals.

I love to travel and meet other cultures and I have always loved the UK. Joining this team meant I could join my two passions by working as a veterinary surgeon in the UK. I am very interested in neurology, but also enjoy surgery. I am also clinical coach to our student nurses, helping to train & assess them. 

Outside of work, I love to read, watch movies, and I enjoy playing tennis. I also have a rescue dog & rescue cat called Iker and Neus, and I love spending time playing with them!

I was born & raised in Plovdiv, a beautiful a historical city located in south-central Bulgaria. I gained my masters degree in veterinary medicine at Trakia University in November 2017.

During my student years, I had the opportunity to gain experience as a trainee in several small animal practices in Bulgaria. I also had the chance to participate in 2 practical Erasmus exchange programs in Hungary and Slovakia. After my graduation, I worked in a small animal veterinary clinic in my home city for a year. Thereafter, I decided to move to the UK, guided by my eagerness to further improve myself. 

I grew up surrounded by animals and my love for them is endless. I am particularly fond of rabbits and foxes. During my leisure time, I like to travel, and I enjoy walking in forests with my rescued Belgian Malinois Shepherd cross, called Ezo.

I was born in Romania, and from childhood I was fascinated by animals. I studied veterinary medicine in Bucharest, where I graduated in 2007. During the studies, I had the opportunity to work in different veterinary clinics, mostly dealing with small animals; this helped me to test my theoretical knowledge and improve my practical skills. After graduation, IU provided voluntary veterinary assistance to an animal protection NGO, whilst working at the same time in the field of animal health & welfare.

With a strong motivation to return to clinical roles, I decided to move to the UK and try my best to do so, and luckily this came true when I was given the chance to join this team. I like to constantly improve my knowledge and I always enjoy challenges

During my free time, I love travelling, listening to good music, and especially spending quality time with friends and family.

Since my early childhood I always wanted to work with animals, which was the main reason why I chose the path of veterinary surgeon. I studied in Slovakia, where I graduated from university in 2018 and shortly after decided to move to the UK.

For just over two years I worked with farm animals as an official veterinarian. In search for a new challenge, I managed to meet the caring and professional team at Vets 4 Pets, who gave me the opportunity to join their ranks in 2020.

I am interested in animal soft tissue surgery and I would love to look into laparoscopic surgery in the future.

In my free time I enjoy long walks and hikes in the forests, bouldering and spending time at the seaside

Ever since I can remember, I was surrounded by animals. I grew up in Poland and gained my veterinary degree at the University of Life and Environmental Sciences in Wroclaw in February 2020. During my vet school, I was gaining experience as a trainee in a few small animal practices but I always considered working in another country. I decided to take up that challenge and moved to the UK shortly after my graduation, where soon afterwards I got a chance to join this lovely team.

I am interested in all the aspects of the veterinary surgeon profession but mostly I enjoy diagnostic imaging and surgery.


Outside work, I am really passionate about the gym, I also enjoy watching series and spending time with my jack russell terrier which I am lucky to have here with me.

I was taking care of animals from a very young age, on my family's farm. Becoming a vet was always my dream, which came true in 2019 when I graduated at Poznan University of Life Sciences. 
 
I came to the UK shortly after graduation in order to improve myself and gain new experiences. I was working for one year as an Official Veterinarian, and then decided to join the lovely Vets4Pets team, for which I am very grateful.
 
I like playing football and cooking but most and foremost, I love long walks with my two beautiful german shepherds, Mars and Ares.

Animals have always been a very important part of my life. Ever since I can remember, I wanted to become a veterinary surgeon. My childhood dream came true in February 2020, when I graduated from the Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences in Poland. After graduation, I gained practical experience in a small animal clinic in adorable Estepona, Spain.

Later I decided to move to the UK where veterinary medicine is at the highest level and where I can work and gain experience alongside great surgeons at Vets4Pets. I am passionate about all veterinary medicine, but my main plan for the future is to become a small animal cardiologist and ultrasonographer.

I absolutely love being active and setting myself new, higher goals. I adore obstacle races, pole dance, gym, and stretching but what I love the most is running with my beloved dog Molly.​

After graduating from the Royal Veterinary College in 2003, I started my veterinary career working at the Greater Manchester RSCPA Animal Hospital. It was here that I developed a passion for small animal surgery. After three years I travelled further afield, working in Queensland Australia. Along with pursuing my interest in surgery, it was not uncommon to be presented with more exotic creatures including fruit bats and opossums. 

In 2014 I attained my MRCVS accredited certificate in Small Animal Surgery. Over the last 12 months, I have transitioned from an in-house surgical role in North Yorkshire to that of a mobile surgeon - this involves performing surgical procedures at a number of different practices throughout the north of England. 

I have a keen interest in both orthopaedic and soft tissue surgical cases. I visit the Vets4Pets and Companion Care clinics regularly to perform specialist orthopaedic and soft tissue surgeries.

I volunteered in the equine industry for over 5 years before getting horses of my own - I currently own 3 horses & a naughty Shetland pony! I have also previously owned a wide variety of animals including rats, gerbils, and hedgehogs, but currently I have a black cockapoo called Milo, a French Bulldog called Poppy, 3 guinea pigs, and 4 ferrets!

I have been working for our practice since 2016 & I am thoroughly enjoying my time here. I have always been very animal orientated and aspired to work in the veterinary sector. Back in 2012 I completed a Level 3 diploma in Animal Management & I still look to develop further qualifications in the future.

I started my role in early 2016 as a receptionist; I wanted to grow further in the clinic and soon progressed onto Head Receptionist. After a short while, I started to gain more knowledge on administration duties, insurance and general practice running. By the end of 2017 I moved permanently to the Merry Hill clinic and took on the role of Practice Manager, which I thoroughly take pride in.

As for my personal life, I have always been surrounded by very much loved pets. I have two very handsome boys - one Syrian hamster named Fletcher, and Paprika the rabbit. We also have two family British Bulldogs - Stan who we rescued two years ago & Bailey whom we have had from 8 weeks old.

I previously worked at Pets at Home & during that time I gained hands-on experience with numerous animals, and completed several animal-related exams. This experience in the animal industry reinforced my natural passion for animals and made me want to pursue a higher level of training.

I am an avid video maker and most of my free time is spent making short films and videos. I'm also a huge football and boxing fan. I've always had a great love of animals which is shown through my large pet collection which consists of a Leonberger mountain dog, a Bengal cat, a rescue cat, two rabbits, two gerbils and a bearded dragon.

After years of working on a farm, I realised being on assistant herdsman on a dairy farm wasn’t quite for me! I was sure I wanted to continue working with animals. I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to join this hardworking and caring team and have never looked back since.

Though I love all animals, I do have a soft spot for crazy spaniels and labradors, my springador ‘Meg’ fills both of these and is absolutely crazy yet so loving and gentle too! In the future I hope to become a veterinary nurse and continue to provide the very best care possible for all your much loved pets.
