I qualified at Liverpool University in 1997. After a couple of years working on the Wirral I relocated to Dorset and worked in several local practices. In 2003 I took the plunge and opened my own practice on Ashley Road and 14 years later am very proud of the quality service offered by the whole team at Poole Vets4Pets. I have over 20 years’ experience in veterinary medicine and my special interests include skin conditions and all types of surgery. I live locally with my vet husband, two young children, a black Labrador and two extremely fluffy rescue cats from Margaret Green Animal Rescue.

Hello! My name is Tori and I joined Vets4Pets in October 2016. I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2011 and have been working in small animal practice ever since. My professional interests include internal medicine, imaging, clinical nutrition and dentistry. I have a teeny tiny dog called Maya who comes to work with me every day and I really enjoy taking her for walks along the beach and around Bournemouth. I am an active member of my local church and I also love running, cross-training and swimming. I balance my love of exercise with a healthy love of baking and I keep my colleagues supplied with freshly baked goodies as much as possible!.

I have been nursing since 2012 alongside a lovely team of colleagues, and recently qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in July 2017. I have a keen interest in medical nursing and emergency and critical care. Both give me one on one time with patients and enable me to get to know more about the patient’s personalities and personal quirks whilst in the hospital with us. I love being able to provide care to patients enabling me to observe their personal improvements overtime. I have a Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Kano who enjoys a fuss with lots of kisses and long cuddles

Since starting work in veterinary practice in 2014, I have had the opportunity to work in an out of hours hospital and a referral practice. After qualifying as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2018 and joining Vets4Pets in 2019, I have been able to continue learning about what veterinary nurses are capable of doing. I particularly enjoy teaching Student Veterinary Nurses in my role as a clinical coach and performing Schedule 3 surgical procedures. I also have a keen interest in rabbit welfare. Outside of work I enjoy spending time at the beach and practising yoga.
