Vets4Pets North Tyneside opened in 2001 following my desire to set up a working environment where the team really felt valued and respected. We pride ourselves on being able to offer tailor made working arrangements to suit each individual’s needs and provide a balance between work and home life.

I qualified from Edinburgh University, studying at the same time as Frances (although I was a couple of years below I hasten to add - sorry Frances). I have worked in a variety of different practices in various parts of the country, following my husband’s career. This involved treating all “creatures great and small,” ranging from tiny hamsters to bull weighing over a tonne. I have 5 dogs and a horse (if my daughter lets me ride him!).

Hi I’m Demi. 2 years ago I moved to the UK from Greece to continue my career as a Veterinary Surgeon. Newcastle was my first choice to start my adventure in the UK and I have been loving it ever since. I qualified in 2016 and since then I have dedicated my time to ensure the upmost care for all my patients and I strive to be the best Veterinary Surgeon I can be. While I was in Greece I spent a lot of time volunteering to neuter and treat the stray animal population; this was very rewarding and how I ended up with my two boys Khal and Ivan which I rescued from the streets of Greece. My favourite thing to do is go to the beach with them where we can all race to the water and see who swims faster.... they always win!! I joined the team in October 2018 and I am extremely excited to be working at North Tyneside Vets4Pets. I am thrilled to have been welcomed into their work family and look forward to building memories together.

I joined the North Tyneside Vets4Pets team back in May 2018, and really enjoy all aspects of my job. From a young age I have always had a love for animals, working on farms and owning horses. I graduated with my BSc (Hons) degree in 2016, and since have worked in a busy referral hospital, gaining experience and skills along the way. I am also a Clinical Coach, where I help train up the new generation of RVNs. I own three very naughty dogs, Oscar (Sprocker Spaniel), Rosie (German Shorthaired Pointer) and Lexi (Golden Retriever), who are always getting into trouble, and eating things they shouldn't! I also love canine behaviour and do agility with my Spaniel and GSP. I have always had a passion for medicine and emergency and critical care nursing. I am currently working towards my Advanced Nursing Diploma which I aim to qualify in January 2020. I love forward to meeting you and your furry friends at North Tyneside Vets4Pets.

I am a Veterinary Nurse that has two naughty cats, Rainie and Darcie and two rescue guinea pigs Carlos and Julio. In my spare time I love nothing more than spending time with my little horrors. I have always had a passion for animals and caring for them and was overwhelmed when I began my career in nursing. I love the new challenges working at North Tyneside brings every day and spending time with such an amazing team!

My co-workers and I are incredibly passionate about caring for our patients. I decided to get into nursing after completing a Zoology BSc Hons; I loved learning animal biology but soon realised my greatest passion was working with and helping animals. So I took a leap onto a new career path and never looked back! I have sleepy whippet called Ralph and two cats called Sheldon and Cooper. Sheldon also has several pet fish that he's extremely fond of.

My love for animals began at a very early age, I was raised on the family farm and never too far away from the sheep, dogs and cats. After leaving school at 16 I began my VN training and qualified in 1995. Over the last 20 years I have worked in several areas of the veterinary sector increasing my knowledge and skills along the way. I am very proud to have joined Frances, Simon and the rest of the team at Vets4Pets and look forward to meeting you and your pets in the future.
