Meet the team
Like most of the team, outside of work I enjoy exploring the countryside with my two terriers, Peggy and Alfie. I spend the rest of my time with my horses - Penry and Aldo. I have also recently taken on a stray kitten, affectionately known as Bugwump! My favourite part of being a vet is operating, although my satisfaction definitely comes from the gratitude and smiley faces when we are able to fix your pet! To me, working for Vets4Pets means being part of a team who support each other and the clients, whilst always doing the best for our patients.
My favorite animal is hard to choose but probably cats. I seem to be building up a collection of different colors... So far I have a tabby, a big black cat, a small black cat, a ginger boy, and a very pretty ginger and white girl. You can never have too many cats, and I don't have a black & white one yet...
As well as my cats, I also have 2 collies - Timmy and Kiera. Plus we keep sheep, cows, pigs, chickens and turkeys on our small holding.
I love working for vets4Pets because it means I get to know some of the pets, and their owners, who we see regularly. It's always nice to see the dogs who have been coming here since puppies, pulling their owners across the car park as they're so keen to come and visit us! (perhaps the jar of biscuits at reception has something to do with that!)
My favorite animal is really hard to choose, but I think my absolute favorite has to be dogs. When I was 13 I had a real bond with my friend's Jack Russel, Ivy, and it was a combination of her and my love of all the animals at the riding stables where I spent my weekends and holidays, that made me want to be a vet. I also love cows, sheep, horses, and cats!
At home I have a four-year-old whippet, Rupert, who was bred by a nurse I used to work with. He's a joy, and the perfect dog for me!
The best thing about working for Vets4Pets is the three C's. Lovely Colleagues, Clients, and high standard of Care!
I have been working in the veterinary industry since 2011 and qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2013. I have worked in two other small animal practices including a busy veterinary hospital where I gained lots of valuable experience.
I joined the team at Vets4Pets Shrewsbury in May 2017, and was quickly promoted to Head Veterinary Nurse. Last year I completed an additional qualification – a certificate in Emergency and Critical Care, which has enabled me to extend my skills and knowledge and help pass on my knowledge to the student veterinary nurses.
I am a clinical coach to two of the students in practice which involves mentoring them through their nurses training. I love teaching the students new skills and seeing them progress. My favorite part of my job is theatre work and anaesthesia.
Outside of work I have a rescue labrador who I love taking out for long walks in the countryside. I love my job here at Vets4Pets and enjoy looking forward to coming to work to see what the day will bring
I qualified as a Registered Veterinary nurse in 2014, after joining the practice as a receptionist, and then completing my Veterinary Care Assistants certificate in 2009 and 2010. I enjoy the variety that the role involves but especially like x-rays and assisting with ultrasound scans. I enjoy working as part of such a friendly, caring team.
I have two young daughters who keep myself and my husband busy when we are not at work. We enjoy going for walks and spending time at the beach when we can. I also have two cats Misty and Garfield, who are now getting into their senior years. Misty loves nothing better than sneaking onto my eldest daughter's bed for a cuddle.
In my spare time, I love to read, especially crime novels as I love a good twist in a story!
I have also started to teach myself to cook which I have found I really enjoy. I have 4 Poodles, one standard poodle Ted, and 3 Miniature poodles Vinnie, Aero and Cookie! They all have their own unique personalities, but one thing they all have in common is that they all love to go swimming!
Before I started working for vet4pets I was a client for many years and I was always so impressed by how caring and friendly the team was! Now as an employee of Vets4Pets I love the fact that the team are so close and friendly, also the team always all work together to achieve the best outcome for their patients
My favourite animals are cats. I love how they are independent, mischievous but very loving.
I have three cats: Willow who is a typical naughty torti, Salem who is a laid back ball of fluff and Oliver who is a very mischievous kitten I adopted from my old practice. I also have a very opinionated standard-bred horse called Grace.
In my spare time I love relaxing and spending time with my horse and getting her out into the fields for a spin.
The best thing about working for vets4pets is the amazing team. Everyone is incredibly supportive and caring and everyone has a genuine love for the animals we take care of. I am very excited to start my RVN training in Sep with such an amazing team.
I started working in the veterinary industry in 1991 and became a qualified nurse in 1996. I have worked in numerous practices over the years - some mixed but mainly small animal. I like working at Vets4Pets as we see a diffrent variety of animals, especially rabbits and guinea pigs inside Pets At Home.
I spend my time outside work walking and doing agility with my Cocker spaniel, Cerin. I also have two Maine Coons
In my spare time, I enjoy walking my dog and discovering new places that we can get lost in. My kids keep me busy with their variety of clubs and interests. I look forward to warm, sunny holidays with my family and catching up with friends when I'm not running around after the kids!
My dog Sheamus is my big hunk of love! He's a Fox Red Labrador who has three loves in life... Food, Walks & Sleep. His best friend is my 8-year-old daughter and their favorite game is Hide & Seek where he always finds her!
I enjoy working at Vets4Pets because I get to meet people and their lovely animals and chat about the silly things they do.
My absolute favorite part of being a receptionist has to be meeting and cuddling as many puppies as I can grab hold of.
Dogs are definately my favourite animal, for their unconditional love. They are always happy to see you.
At home, I have two dogs - Biscuit, a Labrador/Retriever and Pebble, a Cavachon. Also a selection of tropical and coldwater fish.
The best part of working for Vest4Pets is support of, and working with a great team. Being able to meet so many gorgeous pets and their caring owners.
I have a dual role at Vets4Pets, working as a client care advisor and I'm training as a veterinary nurse. I really enjoy laboratory work but get genuine enjoyment out of every aspect of working closely with the pets we see here at the surgery.
I have 4 incredible pets; a 9 year old cavapoo who I couldn't be without, a crazy 5 year old cocker spaniel, a dachshund cross puppy with a huge personality, and finally, a cheeky kitten.
In my spare time, I can either be found nestled in a good book or exploring the local countryside with my posse of pooches.
My favourite animal would have to be a cat because I love how adventurous and mischievous they are. I have a rescue cat called Humphrey who loves exploring during the day and curling up in front of the TV in the evening. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family, going for walks and volunteering at the Shropshire Cat Rescue. I have been volunteer there for over 3 years.
I started my training in September 2018 at Reaseheath College and am enjoying every part of it. My favourite topic at the moment at college is Infection Control
