Meet the team
I graduated in 2006 from Bristol University and I also have a degree in Zoology. I have wanted to be a vet since a young age, having been inspired by my Grandmother who worked for many years for the Cats Protection League. She would often have orphan kittens and strays to look after and it was her dedication to these animals that gave me the desire and motivation to embark upon a career in the veterinary profession. This love of animals was further reinforced when I spent my summer holidays from school working on a friend’s dairy farm.
I have always worked in small animal practice since qualifying and enjoy all aspects of veterinary work but particularly enjoy small animal medicine. In 2009 I completed a European School of Postgraduate Veterinary Studies Certificate in Small Animal Medicine.
Opening my own practice has always been an ambition of mine as it gives me an opportunity to offer high quality veterinary care to the animal patients and a personal level of service to their owners. I have dreamt about being part of a veterinary practice that is a real help and benefit to the animals in the local community and I hope that this is what will be achieved by Vets4Pets Portsmouth. I live at home with my Wife and two young children, and a cheeky Bengal cat called Freddie. I enjoy going to football matches and photography.
My name is Louise and I’m Head Nurse at Portsmouth Vets4Pets.
I qualified in May 2012 but I have been in practice full time since 2007. I have always been passionate about working with animals and knew at a young age this would be my career path. The job is both fascinating and exciting and every day is different. Aside from Nursing, I also train Student Veterinary Nurses and am a Clinical Coach. I enjoy doing this as it’s very rewarding and gives me the opportunity to pass on my experience.
I have owned pets most of my life, and this includes my current cat Orion who is a very temperamental young man! As a pet owner I understand the bond between pet and owner and as a veterinary nurse I appreciate how much our animals mean to us all.
I have a particular interest in birds and wildlife. In my spare time I enjoy reading and spending time with my friends and family.
I qualified at Middlesex University in 2016 and joined the team at Portsmouth Vets4Pets in 2017. I most enjoy looking after hospital in-patients, helping them to feel as relaxed as possible to aide their recovery.
I'm a self-confessed crazy cat lady with a particular affection for ginger toms. I rescued my cat Chester sixteen years ago and he's been with me through thick and thin.
My name is Macauly and I have been the Veterinary Care Assistant for Vets4Pets Portsmouth since January 2019.
I have five Guinea Pigs, a Jack Russell called Lacey and over 50 houseplants. One of my favourite parts of the job is dealing with wildlife that comes in to our practice. During my time at university I spent 3 months following Orangutans in Borneo and recording what they got up to daily as part of my research into laughter and friendship in primates!
Hello I’m Kirsty, I’m the newest member of the Vets4Pets Portsmouth team! Prior to working here I have 12 years’ experience working with animals within emergency and referral practices as well as a dog walker and at a dog day care. I have various qualifications in Animal Care, but I am particularly passionate about behaviour and nutrition.
I love the variety within the veterinary industry and I can’t wait to get stuck in with my training as a Student Veterinary Nurse.
I have two cats of my own: 4 year old Ganon and 6 month old Flerken who I hand reared from 24 hours old, as well as an 8 year old Brittany named Isla.
I joined Vets4Pets in September 2018 and it is my first job within the industry. Previously I have worked within the Customer Service sector, and I am really enjoying building up new relationships with clients and their pets. Nothing could have prepared me for how full on the job would be, but I love the fast paced atmosphere - every day is different.
I have loved animals since I was tiny, and it was always a dream of mine to work in a vets surgery.
I am one of the veterinary receptionists at Vets4Pets here in Portsmouth. I love the diversity of the practice, no two days are ever the same, and we have such a variety of pets coming to see us. I am the Pet Bereavement Counsellor at our practice and I will always make time for anyone who feels that they might benefit from my experience and skill set.
In my childhood I remember always having pets, which included mice, hamsters, rabbits, canaries, cats (which I hand-reared from 3 weeks of age) and dogs, so I have good all round knowledge of most animals. My hobbies are dancing and hill walking as I love keeping fit and in my spare time I help in the bereavement department at a local hospice. I love my job and welcoming your pets!
My name is Charlotte, but everybody knows me as Charley. I have been with Vets4Pets in Portsmouth for 9 months and prior to this I was with another practice for 3 years so I have been a veterinary receptionist for quite a while and I absolutely love it. One of the best things is the variety of work from day to day, from booking appointments to helping clients get the best treatment and of course cuddles with the pets.
I have 4 Guinea pigs called Gizmo, Spike, Daggy and Barley (some might call me slightly obsessed). I am also a lover of anything Spaniel, my parents have a cockapoo puppy called Bear who I am in love with and try to steal away from time to time, but I guess I’m weird like that.
I joined the team in September 2018 following a career in visitor attraction management, most recently managing the Arundel Wetland Centre and Bombay Sapphire Distillery. I decided on a career change following the birth of my two children and am delighted to have found a role which combines my previous experience of management with my passion for animals.
Having owned horses for most of my life I now have one pet, an allergic, accident prone Irish Terrier called Bosun so I have extensive experience of veterinary care from the client perspective! I work closely with the team to deliver the highest standards of care and am always happy to discuss clients’ experiences and feedback to identify where we can improve our service.
Vets4Pets Portsmouth is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!
