Meet the team
I graduated from Bristol University in 2015 and, after some travelling, a hectic month of locuming and some inspiring wildlife veterinary work in South Africa for 3 months, have eventually settled into my first full time veterinary job with the Richmond Vets4Pets team, with whom I’ve been since May.
It’s all very new and exciting at the minute, but I particularly enjoy working up medical cases, and look forward to progressing my surgical skills.
My main passion outside of work is fitness and health, and in particular I love watching any bit of cricket I can get my eyes on, as well as playing for my local team, which I captain, in the summer.
I love spending free time with friends and family and I’ve got three beautiful yellow Labradors – Wattle, Themba and Thula.
I have wanted to work with animals as long as I can remember. After completing a zoology degree, I decided to put myself through even more study to become a vet. I completed my veterinary degree at the Royal Veterinary College in London. After graduation I went to India to help neuter the street dogs and vaccinate them against rabies which was a really rewarding and eye opening experience.
After returning I spent a year working in a busy hospital where I saw loads of interesting cases before working in an equally busy first opinion practice in Caterham. I was very lucky to be offered a job for Vets4Pets after returning from maternity leave.
I am very interested in internal medicine and I am also looking forward to developing my exotics knowledge.
I enjoy spending time with my family and taking my lovely viszla Effie on long walks around Richmond Park.
I started working with animals at the age of 15 when I worked at a large boarding kennels in south east Sydney. This experience allowed me to work closely with the head trainer for the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS). At this time I learnt first-hand how the dogs are trained for both passive and active response to contraband. I was also lucky enough to be allowed the opportunity to train some young puppies that would hopefully one day be a part of AQIS.
I started working at a veterinary surgery in Sydney Australia in 2005 and qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2009. I’ve worked in the UK from 2012 as a locum veterinary nurse, working in general practice and a referral hospital setting where I also worked out of hour’s emergency nursing.
I have two small dogs that currently live with my parents in Australia. Stanley is a chihuahua x cavalier who was rescued from my first practice and is the ‘problem child’ of the two. My other dog Lani is a long haired chihuahua. Outside of work I can be found roller skating through London or in Hyde Park and love getting together for BBQs with friends and family.
I enjoy working with pet owners to help educate them in preventative health care and also have an interest in wound management and medical nursing.
Hi, my name is Celine. I am originally from Ireland but moved to the UK in 2006. I have always wanted to work with animals and started my training as a veterinary nurse in 2008. I qualified as an RVN in 2013. I worked in a very busy 24 hour hospital throughout my training. I loved the variety that working in a hospital provided and each day brought new challenges! I enjoyed the opportunity of getting to know the animals that came in to stay with us and nursing them from the time of admit until they were well enough to go home.
I started work at Vets4Pets in June 2015 after taking time off from vet nursing to have my son.
I have a special interest in animal behaviour and hope to begin studying towards a certificate in animal behaviour next year.
I have 2 female pet rats, Penny and Bean.
My name is Hannah and I started working at Vets4Pets in late 2015. I've grown up with a strong affinity and passion for caring for animals of all shapes and sizes. Having being brought up with dogs in the family home that happened to suffer with medical conditions, it's encouraged me to learn how to care for and nurture animals which I have always found extremely rewarding.
I'm currently the owner/mummy of a cheeky blue Staffordshire Bull Terrier with epilepsy who never fails to keep me on my toes! I have always enjoyed the company of animals and in my spare time can often be found behind a camera lens taking pet portraits.
I was inspired to complete studies in Kennel operations and have since been fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to work with Vets4Pets in Richmond. From the moment I stepped in the door, I was overwhelmingly impressed by the standard of care, capabilty and pleasant nature of the staff here. I am very proud to be part of the team and hope that this is just the beginning of my journey to achieving my goal of becoming a Vetinary Nurse.
Ever since I was little I knew I wanted to work with animals in some capacity but never really knew exactly what I wanted to do. So I went to the University of Lincoln to study BSc (Hons) Animal Management and Welfare and graduated in 2008. After I graduated I worked in retail and did some volunteer work while looking for my dream job and thanks to Vets4Pets I have now found it.
I have been working here at Vets4Pets Richmond since it opened in February 2015. I started out as a veterinary receptionist and then was given the opportunity to be trained as veterinary care assistant and gained my VCA qualification through the College of Animal Welfare. After this I had the honour of being asked to become the Practice Administrator.
I am the proud owner of a gorgeous black and white cat named Heisenberg. She has a bit of a reputation as sassy cat and is not afraid to let you know if she isn’t your biggest fan but I wouldn’t change her for the world! If I had the room (and Heisenberg would allow it) I would have a lot more animals. I love all animals big or small, furry or scaly!
I have always loved animals and the idea of working with them. After working in retail I was given the chance to join the Vets4Pets team as a receptionist which I have been doing since September 2018.
I am the owner of three cats Zico, Turbo and Suki and a Chihuahua called Lola. Lola has a bit of a reputation here and she is affectionately known as a Shark as she is known to snap at the vets but no one holds that against heras she has a face that butter wouldn’t melt!
I grew up in Australia in a small rural town called Bowral in NSW, where I often encountered wildlife at my doorstep. Since as early as I can remember, I have always had a passion for animals and loved being around them. My father also shares this passion and became a zoologist, and so my family included many pets throughout my childhood.
I currently have 2 miniature dachshunds; Poppie, who has the largest attitude of anyone I know, Sasha, the mother of Poppie, and Myla, a golden retriever who seems to never run out of energy.
I moved to England in February 2018, and have been working as a receptionist here since February 2019. Despite doing a music degree at university, I still have a huge love for animals and perhaps one day will pursue a career in Zoology or Vet Nursing.
